Patty Murray draws opponents for 2010
Plastered prominently on Sean Salazar's website is a photo of RNC Chair Michael Steele, who we can only hope will exert some influence on Salazar's candidacy and stump for him.
Senator Murray's other opponent is Wayne Glover of Spokane Valley, who does not list a party affiliation on his website and promises "Real Change". However, a close look at Glover's recommended reading list shows a Who's Who of right-wing authors and media blowhards.
Interestingly enough on Glover's website, he notes personal issues similar to those of Senator Cantwell's previous opponent Mike(!) McGavick:
As a young adult I battled alcoholism, although there were no scrapes with the law, I did make many errors in judgment which details are sketchy but since June 1994 I have not used alcohol.Details are sketchy? Is that because you blacked out and don't remember, or because you really don't want to talk about it, Mr. Glover? And if it's the latter, why mention it at all?
By all accounts, neither of these candidates is of the quality necessary to beat Senator Murray, and will not pose a serious challenge to her reelection.
