SDP reader Reb Wayne sends along the following e-mail he recently received from Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics:
Dear Mr. Wayne,
Thanks for this. Just yesterday, I talked to several key SD reporters and activists. They were unanimous in believing that Herseth would win. They may be unanimously wrong, but I'll stick with the home folks! I also say that if Herseth wins, it's actually bad news for Daschle. South Dakotans don't want to be represented by three Democrats in DC. One is going to have to go---either Herseth in November or Daschle. That's my guess, anyway.
As for the TX races, I'm with you. My team is more cautious. I'm forwarding your comments to them. I'll personally be very surprised if more than one of the endangered TX Dems wins in November.
