Reader Greg Nesmith of Baton

Reader Greg Nesmith of Baton Rouge thinks we were too quick to write off the Republican’s chances in the Louisiana runoff election. He points out that in the poll cited by Real Clear Politics, Mary Landrieu’s lead over Suzanne Terrell is only seven points among likely voters. I still have some reservations based on Terrell’s inexperience and divisions within the Louisiana GOP, but President Bush will visit Louisiana at least once and maybe twice before the December 7 election, and he is extremely popular in Louisiana, so anything might happen. We hope Greg will keep us advised of events on the ground in Louisiana between now and then; we will pass on any intelligence we receive.
