Coleman and Kelly were still out pressing the flesh today (not to mention lawn sign bearers on just about every intersection with a stoplight), but it appears to be all for naught. The latest Minnesota Poll has Coleman opening his margin even wider, 66-22 percent.
The sad thing about all this is that the St. Paul mayoral campaign was reported to be the most expensive city election in Minnesota history. Part of the reason for that is because of Kelly's endorsement of Bush in the 2004 election, and some (who may be a little cracked) are saying Coleman's wide margin of victory reflects more on extreme dissatisfaction with Bush, rather than extreme dissatisfaction of Kelly. In fact, the City Hall Scoop is reporting the race for St. Paul City Hall is getting some national attention from WashPo, Fox News, and National Public Radio. Something tells me that's a bit of a stretch, but oh well.
Oh, and be prepared. Tomorrow...temperatures will be falling throughout the day.
