And Martha Coakley hasn’t lost yet.
And in private conversations, Hill sources say White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel has blamed Coakley, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and Democratic pollster Celinda Lake for failing to see Brown’s surge in time to stop it.
“With the legislative and political stakes so high, it’s unbelievable that the Senate committee and White House let this race get so out of hand,” said one senior Washington Democrat. “There’s a lot of blame to go around. Martha Coakley is only one of the problems here.” (Source: Politico)
Most interesting how nobody is accepting responsibility for what went wrong for the Democrats. Must be more fun to complain and point fingers at each other.
