Heard on the Intertubes

Tom Jensen, yesterday, at Public Policy Polling, commenting on the fact that a Democrat was elected Saturday to replace former Republican House Speaker Denny Hastert in Illinois, a Congressional district where no Democrat was given a chance of winning:
I think it's pretty much a given that Larry Kissell has an even chance of knocking off Robin Hayes. But when Democrats take victories like this it's also an indication that in this political climate Daniel Johnson really could knock off Patrick McHenry if things swung the right way, and whoever emerges from the Democratic primary in the 5th District could have a shot at Virginia Foxx as well.

People in the NC-5 have been saying this for months. Nice to see it echoed within the Raleigh bubble.
