Lamar! Alexander is pulling out all of the GOP stops he can to avoid losing (or in the case of Cochran) getting too close for comfort. He has secured endorsements from Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich. This is a sign that Lamar! is taking his opponent seriously and doesn’t want to give up his job.
Can his opponent gather the kind of late momentum that Tea Partiers normally get when they pull off an upset? We’ll see, although I doubt it.
