Toss-Up

I don't really understand why a lot of rankings call Minnesota the best Republican pick-up opportunity, a "toss-up" (such as here today, though I don't know if this was an upgrade or a downgrade) and so on. Doesn't an 8 point lead in polls, along with the fact that Mark Kennedy has been playing defense for the entire cycle so far, buy the Klobuchar campaign some love? This seat should be a solid "lean Democrat", upgraded to "strong Democrat" once the race solidifies in September or so.

Oh, speaking of analysis, David Kirchner, also known as "The Analyst", is leaving blogging, perhaps permanently. Good luck to David in his new job, and I hope that he'll return to blogging soon.
