Dayton v. Kennedy

Returning Senator Mark Dayton to the Ranks of the Idle Rich in 2006


Sarah Janecek on 2006

Sarah Janecek, author of Politics In Minnesota: The Directory, offered her thoughts on the 2006 race for the U.S. Senate in Minnesota on this weekend's "Northern Alliance Radio Network" on AM 1280 The Patriot. Janecek said she would not be surprised if Dayton faces a DFL challenger in the primary or even if he were to decide against seeking a second term altogether.

Dayton v. Kennedy thinks S.J. has entirely too much faith in the Democrats ability to nominate someone other than Dayton, who remains extremely popular with the left wing of his party.

On the Republican side, Janecek acknowledged the CW by saying that Mark Kennedy would be a major contender for the nomination, but said other heavyweights were contemplating a bid. Janacek was sworn to secrecy as to the identity of these folks, but certainly Brian Sullivan -- early frontrunner for the 2000 Republican nomination for governor -- has to be among them.
