New Hampshire - a Democrat gain on Nov 4?

I never did much like John Sununu when he was the older George Bush's chief of staff. His subsequent record in Congress has been less than inspiring. He voted for the charade that was the attempt to impeach Bill Clinton, gaining the approbation of the New Hampshire Christian Coalition in the meantime. He has opposed abortion and increasing the minimum wage while favouring school vouchers and the death penalty. Exactly the person you would want replaced by a good old fashioned Democrat.

Former Governor Jeanne Sheehan is his Democrat opponent on 4th November. Electoral Vote has her ahead today by 8 points.

Here's hoping that Jeanne's luck holds.

UPDATE: Thanks to those who have pointed out that this Sununu is in fact the son of Bush 41's Chief of Staff. His Senate record still stinks, though.
LibDig This!

I think Senator John Sununu is actually the son of the John Sununu who was Bush senior's chief of staff.

Hate to break it to you, but it's a different John Sununu; Senator John E. is Chief of Staff John H.'s son. Couldn't agree with you more on the importance of getting rid of him though!

You are both right. Thanks for that.
