Maine Headed For A Senate Tussle

According to The Hill, Maine congressman Tom Allen will likely announce his Senate candidacy sometime next month, confirming what has been increasingly believed -- and wished for -- by Democrats hoping to gain that seat in 2008.

Allen raised a solid $400,000 in the first three months of the year, and figures to be able raise the dough to compete against Republican incumbent Susan Collins.

So, money won't be the difference here. My question for you is: will this race be determined primarily by the relative appeal of the two candidates, or more by the prevailing level of national anti-GOP sentiment 18 months from now?
