Missouri Senate Race Suddenly Close

“Fueled by tightening polls and an attention-grabbing TV ad in which he assembles an AR-15 rifle blindfolded, Missouri Democratic Senate candidate Jason Kander is newly confident he can unseat incumbent Sen. Roy Blunt,” the Wall Street Journal reports.

“The suddenly close race has both Democratic and Republican groups outside the state pouring money into this onetime GOP stronghold as it becomes an increasingly competitive battleground in the fight for control of the U.S. Senate.”

3. That is one brilliant ad.

Whoever came up with that idea is a fricking genius.

4. Waiting for Some Polling

Is it impossible to poll Missouri or something? Maybe I missed a recent survey or two. Would love to know how much that fantastic ad helped Jason Kander. This is a really solid pickup opportunity and I would like to see the DSCC invest heavily.

5. Not quite the long shot it used to be

Unseating Blunt will depend both on local factors and Trump making toxic waste out of the Republican brand nationally.

Trump is doing his level best, but Missouri is still a tough nut for a Senate challenger to crack. Not impossible, though!
