Special election for heavily Democrat district

WKYT-TV has called the special election in Kentucky that drew relatively strong national interest from both national parties. The Democrats will try to make hay of this as a referendum on Bush.

Chandler had a lot more name recognition than his opponent, Alice Forgy-Kerr. He lost last year's governor's race to the previous occupier of this House seat (hence, the special election), he is a former state attorney general and his grandfather was governor of Kentucky. President Bush never even campaigned during this race. It's amazing that Chandler had to battle in a tight election, at all. The Dems might be jumping up and down but Bush won't be losing an seat over this race.
