Following up on Karen’s update. The really interesting character in this is McCain, who recorded robocalls for Davis but didn’t personally visit. The Dem victory calls into question McCain’s coattails, as Gingrich warned, but it also makes me wonder why McCain’s been immune to the backlash against the GOP thus far in national polls. And if he is such a maverick that he isn’t tainted by the public’s frustration with the Republican Party, does that make him useless or even harmful in ultra-conservative districts where Dick Cheney’s still a boon (though, clearly the veep’s visit Monday didn’t do a heck-of-a-lot for Davis)?
