BE NICE TO AVOID THE RUNOFF:

Tracking poll shows Vitter getting 51 percent (John Hill, October 27, 2004, Lafayette Advertiser)

Republican U.S. Rep. David Vitter of Metairie crossed the magic line of a clear majority in the U.S. Senate race tracking polling released Tuesday.

Vitter had 51 percent through Monday night, said pollster Verne Kennedy of Pensacola-based Market Research Insight, who has been reporting night tracking data to his business clients daily since Oct. 15. The poll has a margin of error of 4 percentage points.

Kennedy projected that, had the election been held Monday, Vitter would have won with 54 percent.

This will be a big one, if Vitter comes thru. The other other states in the south during this cycle will (should, anyway) be easier. EXCEPT maybe Florida.

Speaking of Florida, how is it that Martinez is not far ahead of Castor, given her handling of the Al-Arian fiasco?

Lafayette, Louisiana. Heart of Cajun country.

Does this mean the Louisiana GOP is going to be putting Zydeco on the CD with a bottle of whisky as the door prize?
