Struggling Republicans



Politico takes a look at struggling state Republican party organizations, including Arkansas's:

In Arkansas, where Republicans lost the governorship in 2006 and are outnumbered in the state House and Senate by 3-1 margins, state GOP Chairman Dennis Milligan said he is facing defections and malaise.

“Independent conservative individuals just said they were fed up and they said there is no difference [between the two parties],” Milligan said. “We have sent out the message that we are now different. We know it did not fall down in one day and it won’t be rebuilt in one day.”

Not that John McCain is probably worrying much. The latest Rasmussen poll has him ahead of Hillary Clinton 50-43 here, and ahead of Barack Obama 59-30.
