More election analysis

The Washington Times and Jackson Citizen Patriot have interesting post election analysis stories out this week.
They give an in-depth look at the 7th District primary for those who feel they haven't read much locally written commentary and analysis about how Tim Walberg ousted incumbent Joe Schwarz.
Sarah Chamberlain Resnick, executive director of the Republican Main Street Partnership, says Club for Growth clearly "tried to buy the election" for Tim Walberg, a former state representative from Tipton.
"Republicans the same day learned, 'Don't spend too much money. It's not good for your political health,' " Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, told the Washington Times.
A Michigan analyst has a different take on things.
"Walberg enjoys campaigning," Craig Ruff, senior fellow with Lansing-based Public Sector Consultant, told the Citizen Patriot. "One never gets the sense that Joe Schwarz does. He enjoys governing."
