Upping the Ante in the Minnesota Senate Race

Our friend Mark Kennedy is running for the Senate in Minnesota against liberal Democrat Amy Klobuchar. The conventional wisdom is that he is behind, but can win if he closes hard. Today Mark unveiled a new television ad that addresses the national security issue head-on, in the context of Iraq.

But that doesn’t necessarily mean that the voters favor surrender. Mark’s opponent has adopted a classically lazy liberal’s approach toward our war against Islamic terrorism: withdraw from Iraq, then negotiate. With whom? Beats me.
