Looking Ahead

May 1, 2010

The school year is winding down, and exams are on the horizon. This will be my last post before the 2010-2011 school year, so let’s ahead. Within the next few weeks, there will be key primaries in Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, Kentucky, and Arkansas. Right now, I’m predicting a net gain of 8 Senate, 32 House, and 5 gubernatorial seats for the Republicans – I’ll continue tracking all Senate and Governor races, and the top 60 House races, over the course of the summer.

Meanwhile, Florida Governor Charlie Crist has officially abandoned his quest for the Senate under the Republican flag, and will be running as an independent this November –  good luck to former Speaker Marco Rubio as he takes on both Governor Crist and Kendrick Meek for the seat once held by Mel Martinez.

My final well wishes are extended to former NH Attorney General Kelly Ayotte, who is working to succeed Judd Gregg to the US Senate. Another poll has her ahead by 15 points over Democratic candidate Congressman Paul Hodes – I eagerly await casting my ballot for her in both the primary and the general election this fall!
