Kelly feels the wrath of his Bush endorsement

With 100% of the vote counted, Chris Coleman has nearly a two-to-one lead over incumbent St. Paul Mayor Randy Kelly. It's pretty obvious that Democrats are not forgiving of Kelly's endorsement of Bush for President.

John Kerry's endorsement served to remind voters of Kelly's betrayal of the party.

While Coleman probably won't see a two-to-one margin of victory in the general election, Kelly will need to either declare himself a Republican or apologize for his Bush endorsement to stand a chance of beating Coleman. Voters don't like a candidate who pretends to be in one party, and then works for the other.

Now if we can only get Minnesota voters to come to that same conclusion about a former DFL St. Paul Mayor who busy doing what ever Carl Rove and the Bush administration ask of him in the U.S. Senate.
