THAT'S THE WRONG THREE TO FOCUS ON:

Senate control hinges on unlikely trio (JONATHAN MARTIN, 9/1/10, Politico)

[W]ith the political environment turning toxic for Democrats and incumbents, Murray drawing perhaps her toughest possible opponent and Boxer and Feingold facing self-funders, the three Class of 1992 veterans are in the fight of their long political lives as the battle for control of the Senate moves from traditional battlegrounds to blue state venues.

The Senate majority could rest in their hands since it’s difficult to conjure a scenario where Republicans could pick up the 10 seats they need to reclaim the Senate without knocking off at least two of the three.

None of them will be easy to defeat—each is keenly attuned to the threat and has begun hammering the opposition. Senior Democrats, however, are increasingly worried about the trio and especially Murray and Feingold.


Instead, Democrats should be worried about MD, WV & CT. And the GOP should even be putting resources into NY and OR.
