Early Bellwether House Races We're Watching

Posted: Nov 02, 2010 8:54 PM
Here are the races that could spell a big GOP wave.  So far, so good.

IN 02, IN 09

VA 02, VA 05, VA 09, VA 11

KY 06 (This is the one dark spot for the GOP so far).

UPDATE (8:35pm ET) - GOP wins VA 02, VA 09...and KY 06 is tied.

UPDATE II - VA 05 called for GOP, too.  Obama loyalist Tom Perriello was a major Leftist favorite. 

UPDATE III - IN 09 called for the GOP.  Baron Hill was a classic vulnerable Blue Dog, and this was a crucial pick-up for Republicans.  IN 02 appears to be heading down to the wire, as Joe Donnelly's Notre Dame ties are put to the test.  If VA 11 goes to Fimian (R) over Gerry Connolly (D), that's a wavetastic sign nationwide.
