Decision 2008: News out of Wyoming

Good news for Democrats this evening in increasing their control in congress. Now Democrats may have a shot at taking Wyoming's strong GOP senate seat. Rumors our now floating that Former Governor, Ambassador to Ireland, and '94 nominee Mike Sullivan (D) may run against Interim Sen. John Barrasso (R). That would throw the seat into play and now with Governor Dave Freudenthal (D) seems to be wanting to complete his term as Governor. Sullivan seems to be the Democrats last hope at winning our seat here in Wyoming. However the question is, is this just a rumor, or is Sullivan really considering another run for the U.S. Senate. Sullvan ran 13 years ago against then Congressman Craig Thomas and lost 59-39% which is a large margin but that was the Republican Revolution. Things have changed in Wyoming. Democrats picked up a few seat in the legislature (eventhough the GOP soundly controls it) in 2006. They also re-elected Governor Freudenthal by a 70-30% margin. Rep. Barbara Cubin's near defeat last Nov. was very surprising. Good the blood red state of Wyoming be turning a bit blue this Nov. we'll just have to wait and see.
