The Diedrich-Herseth race draws the attention of the The New York Times. My favorite quote comes from Diedrich: “She [Herseth] has done a very good job of running as a Republican.” Unfortunately, he is all too accurate.
The NY Times also reports that 48 Roman Catholic members of Congress have written a church representative objecting to the fact threats to deny communion are “miring the Church in partisan politics.” Since the letter appears to have come only from House members, Tom Daschle’s name is absent. Query: Given the Argus-KELO poll indicates a virtual tie in the Daschle-Thune race, would Tom sign such a letter coming from the Senate?
UPDATE: With respect to the comments regarding gay issues, as I have noted before, Stephanie has consistently said she supports Bush on the gay marriage constitutional amendment. For example, in a debate last month, she said: “I have consistently supported the president and would vote to pass a constitutional amendment if narrowly defined as he requested – to define marriage as between a man and a woman.”
