|The Congressional election tide is rolling in
September 20, 2006 at 1:39 pm
Last Tuesday, a large number of states held their Congressional primaries leading up to the November elections. For months, the conventional wisdom among pundits and prognosticators has been that the Republicans will lose control of the House of Representatives in Washington and could lose the Senate, as well. Six weeks is still an eternity in an election, but the trends afoot don't seem to back up the conventional wisdom. Can the Republicans still lose both the House and the Senate? Absolutely. Some critics outside of the Democratic circles would even argue that they should lose in order to be brought back to their senses, especially on fiscal issues.
