Pipkin ran a good race – for a Republican. I don’t say this because I agreed with his message, in my opinion he hawked his support to ban gay marriage and his support for the 2nd ammendment above all else, I say this because he won 34% of the vote to Mikulski’s 65%. Something tells me Sarbanes will be fighting a tight race in ’06.
But in ’06 the name I’m looking for on the ballot is Martin O’Malley, mayor of Baltimore, reelected to a second term. Governor O’Malley? There we go.
Other interesting Senatorial news: Coors lost? I wasn’t expecting that. Daschle lost? Was sort of expecting that.
