Lamar Alexander has won the race for the Republican Conference Secretary position being vacated by Senator Kyl thanks to Senator Lott's decision to retire. His victory was lopsided, 31-15, despite the fact that his opponent, Richard Burr(R-NC), received the strong backing of Senator and presidential afterthought John McCain.
Interesting trivia note: Before Senator Kyl, the Republican Conference Secretary position was held for six years by none other than Rick "Man on Dog" Santorum.
Can we expect such great things from Lamar!? Only time will tell. I sure hope not, though.
