RI-Sen: Chafee Survives Primary... Barely
Chafee (R) 54%
Laffey (R) 46%
Too bad. Not that I dislike Chafee particularly. It's just that had Laffey won, this seat would have been a virtual Democratic lock. Chafee, on the other hand, has up to a 50-50 chance to hold his seat this year. It should be a close race with Democratic nominee Sheldon Whitehouse.
