This Ron Williams graph is burning up the blogosphere: In the state Senate, the hottest rumors continue to swirl madly around Jim Vaughn of Clayton and President Pro Tem Thurman Adams of Bridgeville. Both have filed candidacies, but suspicions are they will pull out at the last minute. The latest, certifiably unsubstantiated scenario is Rep. Bruce Ennis jumping into Vaughn's spot for the Senate race (this one see-saws weekly), and Kent Recorder of Deeds Betty Lou McKenna running for Ennis' seat.
In Adams' 19th Senate District seat -- he and Vaughn reportedly have a joint retirement pact -- Sussex County Department of Elections chief Ken McDowell will run for the seat. His Republican opponent would be Rep. Joe Booth of Georgetown, the former mayor.
The use if the term "certifiably unsubstantiated scenario" was not enough to prevent Delawarewatch
from jumping through the looking glass, spinning this "certifiably unsubstantiated scenario" into an affront to Democracy on the scale of Watergate.
On the other side, this "certifiably unsubstantiated scenario" was enough for First State Poltics
to declare a Republican takeover of the DE Senate.
The Delawareliberal take? William's "filings" column ran a few sentences short.UPDATE: The Delawatch watch.
Dana seems to think that Rep. Joe Booth
who supports Christianity as the official religion of the IRSD, is some kind of progressive Republican. Either that or Dana has some secret information.
