Forgetting Sarah Steelman

She announced her campaign for Senate Wednesday, and it looks like she's headed towards another competitive primary against an establishment figure -- former Sen. Jim Talent. Talent has said he is strongly considering the race and will make a decision around the end of the year.

Both Steelman and Talent would be highly competitive against Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), according to a new Public Policy Polling survey. The newly-released poll shows McCaskill leading Steelman by just one point, 45 to 44 percent, and trailing Talent by two, 47 to 45 percent.

Missouri voters are evenly split about McCaskill's job performance: 43 percent approve, and 44 percent disapprove - not the strongest numbers heading into a re-election.
