The latest AG to stand with Schneiderman and against the attempts to whitewash the fraud of the big banks is Kentucky AG Jack Conway. He is up for re-election this year, and is known nationally by virtue of his unsuccessful challenge to Rand Paul for Senate in 2010. Conway, in conjunction with the Progressive Change Campaign Committee, sent an email to supporters aligning himself with Schneiderman.

This Hail Mary attack by Kentucky’s Democratic Senate candidate Jack Conway has certainly pulled Rand Paul off of his script, and shows the Conway campaign willing to use anything in the fight. I could also see it carrying a potential backlash, however.

After Alan Grayson released an ad calling his opponent “Taliban Dan,” there was a lot of silly hand-wringing on the left about how misleading and unfair it was. Same thing’s happening again with a Jack Conway attack ad on Rand Paul.

If a candidate other than Rand Paul were nominated in Kentucky, given the rightward tilt of the state and the current electoral environment, they would have probably sailed to victory. But Paul’s past statements are really catching up with him and giving Jack Conway an angle to win.

There is some good news for Democrat Jack Conway. The latest Braun Research/CN2 poll (PDF) of likely voters in Kentucky has him roughly a half-point ahead of his Republican opponent Rand Paul, making the race effectively tied (rounding brings the margin up to a point).
This is a huge improvement compared to the last Braun Research poll (PDF), which found Paul with a ten-point lead over Conway, 41 – 31.

There has been much hope — or dread, depending on which party you support — that the embrace of arch-conservative and Tea Party-backed candidates in contest primaries could seriously cost the Republican Party several Senate seats this November. The economy may be the key to Republican outcomes.

Amid the frustration of a sidelined policy agenda despite large majorities in both houses of Congress, attendees and policymakers at Netroots Nation turned to procedural reform as a way to break the deadlock and bring some accountability back to the legislative branch.

The Senate matchup between Democrat Jack Conway and Republican Rand Paul is very close, with a slight advantage for Paul. A DailyKos/Research 2000 poll has Paul at 44 percent and Conway at 41 percent, with a four percent margin of error. This close race appears winnable for Democrats.
