 n.— «If Brown had announced a decision to enter the U.S. Senate race over the summer when he was being recruited by the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee, he likely wouldn’t be facing a primary challenger and the “netroots,” as progressive bloggers have taken to calling themselves, would be four-square behind him.» —“Who is Sherrod Brown?” by Christopher Hayes AlterNet Dec. 2, 2005.
