Washington Post's Cillizza Analyzes Donnelly's Position

Washington Post political analyst Chris Cillizza devoted his column today to analyzing Joe Donnelly's situation in his Senate race against Richard Mourdock. He notes that turning Richard Lugar's seat to the Democrats would be a major accomplishment. He thinks it's a challenging but doable task:
To win, Donnelly has to defy the increasingly Republican tilt of the state and outpace his party’s presidential nominee there. These are no small tasks and for that reason Mourdock should still generally be regarded as the favorite. But Donnelly’s performance so far has put him in a strong position to compete. And that’s welcome news for Democrats looking to hold their slim majority in November.
