At last the Democratic Senate primary gets ugly.
 
Usually the negatives start flying long before the final week. And it’s always the same scenario: A lagging candidate decides – or gets persuaded – to lash out at the leaders.
 
So it is with Ken Lewis.
 
He has a radio ad attacking Cal Cunningham on the Banking Commission bonuses. Elaine Marshall’s campaign will love that, since she – not Lewis – will benefit.
 
Then Lewis accused both the Cunningham and Marshall campaigns of playing the race card.
 
His evidence: A Marshall adviser said Cunningham couldn’t turn out black votes in the fall. And a Cunningham adviser said it’s tough to raise money when you run against a woman and an African-American.
 
That’s thin stuff, by race-card standards.
 
And pretty nonsensical statements by all three campaigns.
 
Pardon me, but I don’t see much here that will encourage Democrats about the general election.
