It’s starting to be said among the glitterati of our party that Lee Fisher’s presence on this statewide ticket, as was predicted ad nauseum for a solid year, is bringing down the ticket as a whole. That was going to be a problem if Lee was Mr. Money Bags, whose only argument for nomination was his fundraising prowess. But when your US Senate candidate is out of money, unable to air TV spots, while his opponent is running spots non-stop statewide – bigger deal. Kind of a multiplier effect against the rest of the ticket, which in Lee’s case, multiplies further because of his “jobs czar” title, and the attack ads against that particular point.
Now who might have made that bed to sleep in? Hmmm…..More to come!
