Minnesota Senate Primary

Just a thought, but has anyone posited that Rod Grams' intent in entering the GOP primary against Mark Kennedy is actually to clear out the field for Kennedy? Grams has a ton of name recognition, but when coupled with his lack of campaigning thus far, one may have to start wondering if his presence is for the purpose of scaring off any other potential candidates who would see two heavyweights in their path. This way, Kennedy can avoid spending resources in a "real" primary and save everything for the general. It would be quite Machiavellian on the part of the Kennedy/Grams camps, but anything's possible.
