More Kratovil challengers
An anonymous (but very plugged in) politico offers a few more suggestions for possible Kratovil challengers in 2010:
If I had to pick who would be a strong challenger to Kratovil these names immediately come to mind:
Jeanie Haddaway – she is young, a real Eastern Shore native, a hard campaigner, female, and a pretty conservative record though still good on environmental issues
Steve Schuh – Steve can raise a ton of money. He is a strong fiscal conservative who has one of the best ratings for a Republican from the LCV. Plus, he can rack up huge numbers in AA County. If Harris had gotten 1.5% more in AA County, he would have won.
I agree with you that Andy and Pipkin are the two biggest candidates.
Ehrlich does not live in the district right now, so he would have to move (or just run as a non-resident which is legal though not advisable). On that front, because Kendall is pretty outwardly pro-choice (Bob is more reserved about it) - Kendall would have a bloody primary.
The key thing to remember is that whoever runs, they will only have about 7 weeks from the Primary to the General Election.
