The little longshot that canRob Huddleston has pointed out (as has Jay Bush) that Bob Corker's recent ad shows that he is desperate and in trouble, largely at the hands of Ed Bryant. The polls also show that a Van Hilleary withdrawal would greatly enhance Bryant's chances of victory, despite the 10% or so residual vote Hilleary would get because his name is already on the ballot. This reality is worth noting because rumors are circulating in some circles that Congressman Hilleary will announce a withdrawal from the race today.
As much as I think such a withdrawal would do wonders for the conservative movement, I agree with Kleinheider that Hilleary likely will not do so, not because Hilleary cannot accept defeat, but because he has come too far at too great an expense to withdraw when voting has in fact begun. I still believe Bryant can win the Primary, but the campaign must engage in an all-out blitz that makes Corker's efforts look puny.
It is a longshot, but it can be done.
