Couhig Endorses Nagin: The Nail in the Coffin?
In a previous post, I calculated that Landrieu would need to get about 75 percent of the votes that went to Forman and Couhig if he wanted to win.
I guess that's not going to happen now. IT'S OVER.
This endorsement sort of took me by surprise. I thought that a Republican like Couhig would be more wary of "Chocolate City" Nagin than of "Mary's brother" Landrieu. I guess Mary took her Bush bashing a little too far. Either that, or he's getting a cushy deal to support him.
Either way, Mitch is in trouble. Unless Couhig's supporters ignore the endorsement. Or he gets 95 percent of Forman's votes instead of 75.
