The Campaign Spot

Election-driven news and views . . . by Jim Geraghty.

Democratic Senate Candidates Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff . . . Like Israel, Iraq, the Border . . .

Running for Senate is difficult. Sooner or later, you’ll get asked a question about an issue you haven’t researched. So you can try to wing it, as Kentucky Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes did, and suggest that Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system protects the country from Hamas tunnels . . . 

. . . or you can try the approach of Montana Democrat Amanda Curtis:

When asked her position on the situation in Iraq, Curtis told CNN, “Give me a little more time.” On the border crisis, “I’ll need more time, you know only 11 days ago I was painting my storm windows.”

Or, as that campaign memo for Georgia Democrat Michelle Nunn described her position on Israel, “TBD” (To Be Determined).

Shifting to Curtis’s preferred topics, how did the storm windows turn out?
