We smell trouble in Democrat-ville …
— The Hill (@thehill) October 22, 2018
From The Hill:
Sen.¬†Tina Smith¬†(D-Minn.) is holding onto a single-digit lead in her battle to stay in the seat to which she was appointed following Sen.¬†Al Franken‚Äôs (D) resignation.
Housley has faced some national criticism over¬†past comments¬†about former first lady¬†Michelle Obama, former President Obama and¬†Hillary Clinton. But the Star Tribune¬†noted that¬†she has gained support among independent voters. One¬†month ago, Smith¬†held¬†a 7-point lead in the race.
Closer than Beto, yet receiving 1/1000th the coverage https://t.co/zhCMKwDlm0

Because this would be a real and absolute LOSS for Democrats. Let’s be honest, nobody really expects Beto to win in Texas, but if the Democrat who was appointed to fill Franken’s seat loses to the Republican?
Because she‚Äôs not a ‚Äúrock star.‚ÄĚ

So maybe if she played the air guitar, rode her skateboard in a parking lot of a fast food restaurant at night, and fled the scene of a DUI she’d get more coverage? Good to know.
Or maybe 1/1024th.

The Democrat candidate didn't even show up to their debate last night! pic.twitter.com/hcKLcWCqKg

CNN loves to throw a Town Hall.
It is funny how they totally ignore that race, John James in Michigan, and Bob Hugin in New Jersey. All 3 who have a better chance then Beto does. Almost a 2018 feel all over again like how they ignored Wisconsin, Michigan, and Penn.

Funny and all too telling.
It seems that even Franken’s affirmations about being ‘good enough’ may not be enough to help Smith.
