Mary Ekes Out a Sweet Victory

IMHO it was the last minute introduction of the Mexican rumor that that pushed Mary over the top. The story goes that the Bush administration, and by extension Suzie, was poised to allow Mexico to flood the dometic market with cheap sugar, thus spoiling the sweetheart deal LA sugar growers have enjoyed for so many years Too bad for the Dems they did not figure this move for the Gov's race in FLA, which also benifits from protectionist tarriffs on sugar. OTOH, maybe that race wasn't close enough to risk playing that card to no effect.
