2010 May Not Be the Year for Incumbents

  • As I noted a week or so ago, Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) recently lost her fundraising firm and her chief of staff resigned, two months prior.
  • Previously unreported in this space except in passing, Senator Bob Bennett (R-UT) is now up to facing four primary challengers in his race for a fourth term.
  • And, though he kept trying to steer the conversation back to Democratic proposals to aid small business and his own plan to reinvest TARP money, when Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) took a three-city tour on Monday, reporters kept asking about his dwindling poll numbers.
This actually seems to be developing into a national phenomenon and though I don't have any statistics at the ready, nor have I inventoried all of the incumbents, it appears that neither party is immune.
