Now Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-SD) Is In Trouble

These are incredible bad numbers. I am a tad shocked how lopsided this is.

Incumbent Democratic Senator Byron Dorgan may have a serious problem on his hands if Republicans recruit Governor John Hoeven to run for the U.S. Senate in North Dakota next year. The first Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 telephone survey of likely voters in North Dakota finds the popular Republican governor leading Dorgan by 22 points – 58% to 36%. Just six percent (6%) are undecided in that senatorial contest. Part of the challenge for Dorgan is the health care legislation working its way through Congress. Dorgan, along with every Democrat in the Senate, has voted to move the legislation forward and is expected to vote for final approval of the reform later this week. That’s not likely to be well received in North Dakota where just 30% favor the proposed health care reform plan and 64% are opposed.

Well I believe Dorgan will be in trouble if a conservative like Paul Sorum gains the nomination. A left leaning Governor with a spending track record a mile long cannot beat Dorgan. Remember Hoeven used to donate to Mr. Dorgan. Dorgan will eat him alive in the airwave war.
Sorum is a Christian conservative that's not afraid of a challenge. He is running on a fiscal responsibility message. I think a conservative like Sorum is what it will take to beat Mr. Dorgan. Dorganomics has to go.
