Election Predictions

I expect good news for Republicans tonight: Ernie Fletcher will win the governor's race in Kentucky, and Haley Barbour will win in Mississippi. On the other hand, national Democrats' unusual efforts (second item) on behalf of Philadelphia mayor John Street are likely to pay off with a victory.

The really interesting race, though, is the November 15 run-off for Lousiana governor. If it were held today, Bobby Jindal would probably win, but Senator John Breaux will be working hard for Kathleen Blanco in the home stretch-- the word is he'd like to retire, but only if a Democratic governor is appointing his successor. Stay tuned.
