In past elections, Barbara Boxer has won by putting her Republican opponent on defense. In 1992, at the last minute, the California Democrats’ lead henchman, Bob Mulholland, whom Hugh has dubbed “one of the most malevolent forces in American politics“, walked through one of her opponent’s events with a sign alleging that that good man “frequented” strip clubs. Bruce Herschensohn spent the remainder of the campaign on defense.
Well, Carly supporters should be prepared for Ma’am’s minions to pull another such stunt, given that most polls show my gal with momentum similar to that Herschensohn was building up before Mulholland’s stunt. Even CNN notes that Carly’s got Ma’am playing defense
Help Carly keep Ma’am playing defense. The more money Carly raises, the less chance we’ll have of ever having to call Barbara Boxer Senator again:
UPDATE: Ed Morrissey looks at the latest poll and points out that “Boxer isn’t closing the deal in a deep-blue state, and that means Fiorina has a shot at victory here. If she didn’t, Feinstein wouldn’t be hitting the campaign trail, and the DSCC wouldn’t be dumping millions to protect Boxer.”
