Steve King: Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

At least one Republican congressman is rooting for a white-out in Massachusetts tomorrow.

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said he's hoping for a snowstorm tomorrow in the Bay State, where voters will go to the polls in the special election to fill the seat left vacant by the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D).

King tweeted Monday:

Even more pervasive than Brown supporters here in Boston is the snow. The worse the weather the better for the side with momentum - Brown.

King traveled to Iowa to help out efforts on behalf of the Republican candidate Scott Brown, who's waging an upstart effort against state Attorney General Martha Coakley (D).

Poor weather has been seen as a good sign for Republicans, with political scientists reporting that the depressed turnout benefits the GOP. And in an extremely competitive race like the one tomorrow in Massachusetts, both sides will be looking for every edge conceivable.

So what does the weather have in store? There's a winter weather advisory in place for the Boston area, but that advisory is supposed to be lifted at 1 p.m. Forecasts show a 60 percent chance for a rain and snow mix tomorrow.
