Congressional races

Last night Democrat Bill Foster won a special election to replace former House Speaker Dennis Hastert in Congress. It's a district that would never really have been thought winnable for Democrats.

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.

PPP showed back in December that McHenry was surprisingly vulnerable.

If the truth about good ol'Patrick comes out, he is toast.
