It used to be that if a candidate or officeholder had a famous family name, that he or she would be assured of election or reelection!
Tuesday’s Midterm elections may show that the tradition of family is no longer operative.
We have the following Senators up for reelection with a strong family history in public office, but all now in trouble.
We have the following seeking office with family names.
Georgia–Jason Carter for Governor and Michelle Nunn for Senator
Kentucky–Alison Lundergan Grimes for Senator
At this time, none of the seven above are assured of victory, if one believes the public opinion polls!
