Meanwhile, in New Hampshire

The Republican primary for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire remains too close to call, with establishment candidate Kelly Ayotte leading conservative Ovide Lamontagne by just 38.2 percent to 37.4 percent with 85.4 percent of precincts reporting. This isn’t quite as stark a case as Delaware — Ayotte is more conservative than Mike Castle; Lamtontagne polls better in the general than Christine O’Donnell — but it would be another Tea Party triumph if the conservative pulled off the upset.

I sat down with Lamontagne, the 1996 candidate for governor, at CPAC earlier this year. I came away impressed by his sincerity and command of the issues, though he seemed to fade in the polls after that. A late Lamontagne surge made the race close again.
