Scott McAdams: I Can Win by Losing

Scott McAdams, the Democratic candidate in Alaska's Senate race, says he can win his race against Joe Miller and Sen. Lisa Murkowski by performing as well as...an average loser.

"If we do as well as an average losing Democrat in a statewide race, we win in a landslide," the Sitka mayor told Ed Schultz during an appearance on MSNBC Wednesday night.

McAdams may be right, but his path to victory looks like a tough one. The latest public poll in this race shows McAdams trailing significantly: according to an October 15 - 19 CNN/Time poll, Miller and Murkowski are tied at 37 percent, while McAdams trails with 23 percent.
