Dayton v. Kennedy

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

Pawlenty to Endorse Kennedy Monday P.M.

Word just reached TBFKADVK that Governor Pawlenty and Congressman Kennedy will be hosting a joint press conference in an hour. The press conference will be held at Republican Party HQ in St. Paul. The topic? An "Announcement regarding the U.S. Senate race".

It is almost certain Governor Pawlenty will be endorsing Mark Kennedy early this afternoon, effectively clearing the field on the Republican side. It remains to be seen if the DFL race can be nearly as bloodless. The only question that remains to be decided is when Senator Grams will follow suit.

We will hear from our DFL friends that the Republican non-contest will yield an "untested" candidate in Kennedy. TBFKADVK notes that this sounds much like those football prognosticators who say that NFL teams with a first-round bye will be "rusty" come playoff time -- while failing to note those same teams almost always go to the Superbowl.
