(Hotair) It was only last week that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee sent shockwaves throughout the political community and deeply dispirited Democrats when they pulled advertising from Kentucky, conceding that the only opportunity Democrats had to unseat a sitting GOP senator in 2014 was all but lost.

Though she was only down by about 4 percent in most public polls, as Real Clear Politics analyst noted, candidates down by four with three weeks to go before an election only end up winning about 10 percent of the time.
Whether it is a smart investment or not, the Democrats cheered on Wednesday when the DSCC revealed that it was jumping back into the Kentucky race after a public poll found Sen. Mitch McConnell up by just one point over his Democratic challenger.
