- Dole (NC) - I think we lose this one. She's been running some interesting ads, calling her opponent "Godless". If Dole loses, it will be the first time in decades that there hasn't been a Dole or a Bush in national office. In addition, imagine the idea of Jesse Helms' seat flipping to a liberal Dem!
- McConnell (KY) - This would be a feather in their cap if the Dems could take down the Minority Leader. I think McConnell will prevail, though. He's a tough campaigner.
- Stevens (AK) - Could this guy possibly win?
- Udall vs. Schaffer (CO open seat) - Our former intern Abby is working for Schaffer, so my heart is with Schaffer. But it's a tough year for Republicans, and Colorado looks like Obama Country. And the Udall name is a good one. My heart is with Schaffer, but my money's on Udall.
- Landrieu (LA) - This was the only potential for Republicans to oust an incumbent senator this cycle. The demographics have changed since Katrina, and Landrieu is always vulnerable. I interviewed John Kennedy earlier this year. He seems to be a good man, but he picked the wrong year. Landrieu escapes...again.
- Coleman vs. Franken (MN) - If they elect Al Franken, they're insane (then again, they elected Jesse Ventura...)
- Sununu (NH) - Sununu pulls it out. But I still think Bob Smith would've fared better in this environment...
- Gordon Smith (OR) - I don't know much about this one.
... More senate races to watch here.
And here are some additional House races to watch.
- PICK UP OPPORTUNITY – Lou Barletta (PA’s 11th) - I interviewed Mayor Barletta a while back. He's a great guy. I think he wins tonight!
- Bachmann (MN) - Michelle Bachmann will hang on. Her future is bright.
- Murtha (PA) - Sadly, Murtha hangs on.
- Walberg (WI) - Two years ago, the Club for Growth helped Walberg oust a liberal Republican. If he loses tonight (which could happen), some will blame The Club. This, of course, will be bogus. Still, it won't stop the liberal Republicans from assigning blame.
