Christina Bellantoni at TPM has a useful look at Scott McAdams, the Democratic candidate for Senate in Alaska who, pending the GOP primary vote count, may face tea partier Joe Miller in the general election.
So with incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski likely out of the way, could the Dems have a real shot here? Judging by McAdams’ fundraising prowess so far, it’s going to be an uphill battle.
McAdams, the mayor of Sitka, Alaska, had raised just $9,175 by the end of June, when he filed his last report with the FEC. This month, he was just one of nine candidates nationwide cited by federal regulators for failing to file a mandatory pre-primary report.
Bottom line: it’s going to take a huge injection of money and resources from the national party if Democrats want to even attempt to contest this race.
Also worth noting: The DNC’s spokesman, Brad Woodhouse, was apparently unable to identify McAdams as his party’s Senate candidate when asked earlier today.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
