DNC CHAIR UPDATE….Apparently the conventional wisdom has Howard Dean ahead in the race to become DNC chair, followed by former Texas congressman Martin Frost. The Boston Globe has a good rundown on the race today.

However, the state party chairs met today and Time reports that they decided to endorse Donnie Fowler. I’m not sure how valuable their endorsement actually is, but it’s definitely a disappointment for Dean, who seems to be battling against the entire rest of the field. As near as I can tell, the anti-Dean forces think that as long as they can keep him from winning on the first ballot he’s toast.

Stay tuned. Votes are cast on February 12.
