Dole (Briefly) Opines on RI Senate ’06
According to Hotline, Sen. Elizabeth Dole, chairwoman of the National Republican Senate Committee, offered this bit about the RI ’06 Senate race today:
In RI, where the NRSC has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars slamming incumbent Linc Chafee’s primary opponent, Dole dismissed the idea that Chafee’s challenger could win. Dole: “I will not even entertain the idea that Steve Laffey will win the primary.”
Local Channel 6 charactized this as Sen. Dole offering “a positive view of Chafee’s chances against his conservative challenger.” There’s your red meat for the day.
