  • Here it is governor. Our incumbent is not running again so it is an interesting race. There are a lot of independents in the ring, and both the dems and GOP are battling it out in primaries.

  • U.S. Senate--Russ Feingold vs. Tim Johnson. It will be close, but I think Feingold will win. In my district, I don't even know who is trying to run against Paul Ryan but he or she will not be able to defeat him. I think the gubenatorial race is a bit heated, but not attention grabbing. Scott Walker will probably win it.

  • Michigan, governor.

    Indiana, but right on the border - Michigan governor is a bigger deal here than any of our state races. Too many people cross over - work on one side, live on the other, so whatever happens effects both sides of the line.

  • We have a pretty good Governors race here in MN. One right winger GOP(Emmer), one reasonable but far from perfect Dem(Dayton) and an interesting and fairly moderate independent (Horner.) Emmer is already pulling out the vicious ads

  • Sisteract nailed it for CA. And it's going to be very interesting. Meg Whitman shot herself in the foot recently with a Spanish-language ad opposing the AZ immigration law. She lost a LOT of conservative votes with that; the polls are neck and neck now.
