Some good thoughts from Silver. The fact that this race is even close enough to warrant discussion is significant in itself, but I have a column coming out tomorrow on that theme and I’ll return to the point then. Enjoy Moore getting the representation he deserves in the meantime.
As always, however this turns out the lesson is that running on exactly my policy positions is always the best politics.
