Does anyone else find the Missouri Republican Party’s attempted branding of Robin Carnahan as a local Caroline Kennedy just a tad weak? I mean, Caroline Kennedy was unknown to many New Yorkers outside of her family’s name. Robin Carnahan has a famous last name, but she’s also won two statewide elections. The first election she won fairly easily against the sitting Speaker of the Missouri House in a tough year for Democrats, and in the second Carnahan earned the most votes for a candidate in the history of the state.

Missourians already know and like Robin Carnahan for her own accomplishments, not just the family name.
