I Think Scott McAdams Could Use Some Cheers



Poor guy: “It remains to be seen whether [Alaska Democrat Senate candidate Scott] McAdams will receive support from the Democratic National Committee or the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. McAdams says it doesn’t matter. ’The DSCC and the national Democratic Party doesn’t even know my name. And that’s fine by me,’ he said.”

Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name! And they’re always glad you came! You want to be where you can see… troubles are all the same. You want to be where everybody knows your name!

As mentioned in the Jolt, I’ll bet you see the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee throwing money up there as soon as they look up their nominee’s name, mostly because the state has such a cheap media markets and the risk/reward and cost/benefit ratios are terrific compared to the rest of the country. Secondly, while I don’t doubt we’ll see some race that leaves us murmuring, ‘how did the GOP blow that one?’ on November 3, it’s hard to imagine it will be in Alaska in a big GOP year.
