It will not be a cakewalk.

I think the Democrats will make an issue of these anti jobs votes. It might have been that, in this instance, either she did go on past the quote to speak of Brown or there was a decision to strategically wait until after the infrastructure vote. Both the First responders/teachers bill and the infrastructure vote are things that the public wants. Brown could have been pushed to vote to save his seat if she had made him the issue at that point. Brown's vote would not have made it pass, so it really would not have helped us - while it would have helped Brown claim he is independent.

Does it hurt Brown when he whines about how unfair it is for the LCV - a one issue environmental group - attacks him for his bad record? These are not smear ads in the least - and his attempt to say that it is untrue because of the fake DC license which was obviously not meant to be taken literally was pretty weak.

What I did take as heartening was that Warren handled it beautifully - though it may be that being a teacher/professor really has transitive skills to handling small/medium size crowds. It was very good that she responded to his being out of work - rather than ignoring that. His later behavior was pretty trollish.
