I think Hollings could actually be beaten. It doesn't look good for the Dems in South Carolina at all.

Oh, I believe Hollings can be beaten, too. He should've been beaten back in '98 with Bob Inglis (and with more resources, Tommy Hartnett could've taken him out in '92). I still don't know why Inglis was never able to rally the troops. Hollings is not revered like Strom Thurmond is (who still had a zest for the Senate well into his 90s), and it's showing now that he's no longer in the majority that he's lost interest. Interesting to note that the highest percentage of the vote a Republican has gotten against Hollings was a man named Marshall Parker way back when Hollings first ran in 1966 (Parker received almost 49% of the vote, and SC came just that close to being the first former Confederate state to have 2 Republican Senators since Virginia in 1885. We got the title here in TN in 1970 when Bill Brock took down the last remaining 'Rat Senator, Albert Gore, Sr.).
