Little Hope of Picking Up South For Dems

Despite Hurricane Katrina and the president's continuing unpopularity in even the reddest of states, the Democrats only potential challenger to a Republican seat in the Senate, Congressman Harold Ford (D-TN) looks weak in the polls.

Ford, who is looking to win the seat currently held by Bill Frist (R-TN), is trailing every possible Republican challenger in the polls.

Although the major southern pickups for the Democrats would more likely be in the House, the Tennessee race is likely to get a lot of money and attention, and it would be a symbolic victory, as Ford is not only liberal but Black.
