How Far Will The Democrats Go to Keep The Senate?
By the time you read this, Sen. Torricelli's re-election campaign may be dead. There are reports that Sen. Torricelli may withdraw from his troubled Senate race if a suitable replacement can be found in time for the Nov. 5th ballot. But wait:
"Republicans said they would contest any effort to have a substitute candidate take his place, arguing that it is barred by state law so close to an election. According to GOP lawyers, the only exception acknowledged by a court has been in the case of the death of a nominee."
The Torch - team player? Politics ain't beanbag, Bob.
UPDATE: OK, the candidacy is dead, but the former candidate is still alive. Advice to Republicans: We the People want an election, not a court fight. Follow the John Ashcroft 2000 model, even if the Dems are cheaters.
