Emory University political scientist says Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate is in the wrong party.

In a June 3 post I questioned whether Dale Cardwell, who on June 2 announced that he would be a Democratic candidate in the 2008 race for U.S. Senate, was going to conduct his campaign as if he were running for the Democratic primary or for the general election.

Then in a June 4 post I noted that although Cardwell apparently was going to run as a populist, he would be better off in 2008 running as a moderate Democrat.

Today, June 5, I read in the AJC's Political Insider that Alan Abramowitz, the Emory University political scientist, believes Cardwell is in the wrong party.

“Democratic primary voters in Georgia are . . . not going to support someone who wants to abolish the IRS and who basically supports the war. He’s in the wrong party,” Abramowitz said.

This is getting more interesting by the day.

We need a populist conservative Democrat in the race for Senator. Of course, the loony left would rather find a Dennis Kucinich or Rosie O'Donnell clone to nominate. After all, carrying Midtown is what is really important !
