Embrace the inevitability!

Lot of reporting in the political blogosphere about the Rasmussen poll showing Terry Goddard outpacing potential GOP rivals Jan Brewer and pardoned felon Fife Symington, who inexplicably manages to get 37% support. Terry Goddard (D): 42 Jan Brewer (R-inc): 35 Some other: 13 Not sure: 11 Terry Goddard (D): 44 Fife Symington (R): 37 Some […]
