Looking for Historical Analog

by Shannen W. Coffin

If Brown pulls this out, I don’t think you have to go back as far as Harris Wofford for a political analog to this race. I’d look more to George Allen’s loss to now Senator Webb in Virginia. In Allen’s case, it was a major gaffe that helped sink him, as opposed to a series of semi-serious flubs. But the political “climate” also gave Webb an insurgency platform that picked up major steam in the final days of the campaign.
