Change that started in Virginia, continued to the Brown capture of the so called "Kennedy Seat" which Kennedy's late fat ass almost flattened into Two Seats for starters, not to mention the seat Republicans scored when Honolulu City Councilman Charles Djou won Obama's Hawaiian Home District last week as well in a special runoff election to replace the man leaving to run for governor.
A candidate who is actually one of the 'first' democrats to actually 'quit' the present office to run for another, instead of 'double dipping', like most do, including Obama, who screwed Illinois as we all know by running for and then winning the Senate seat, then almost immediately abandoning it months later while still 'grabbing those paychecks' while conning the country into electing him president..
Well, at least the ignorant half.
In the Senate, Democrats are struggling to hold on to, among others, seats once held by Obama here in Illinois which Mark Kirk is seemingly blowing to a bank robber with a suit, Alexi Giannoulias, along with Joe Biden Jr's seat.
Democrats are preparing to lose as many as 30 House seats — including a wave of first-term members — and Republicans have expanded their sights to places where political challenges seldom develop.
These are the top races to watch for today again thanks to Politico and some others.
South Carolina’s freak show politics, the progressive left’s Arkansas muscle flexing, the astounding and obscene amount of statewide election spending in California — at least $120 million-plus and rising — all of it is part of Tuesday’s dramatic primary election narrative.
Yet the headline-grabbing excesses of a few states have obscured a larger fact: With a Senate runoff, a House special election and 10 states going to the polls, it’s the single biggest day on the 2010 election calendar prior to November.
With so many contests on the ballot, here is POLITICO’s guide to the nine best races to watch Tuesday.
Arkansas Senate Runoff
With Democratic Sen. Blanche Lincoln’s career on the line, this one easily rates as the day’s marquee Senate contest.
Sure, this race is about ambition — no one has ever described Lt. Gov. Bill Halter otherwise — but the real story of the runoff is in its implications for Democratic centrists across the nation.
Fueled by progressive support, Halter’s campaign accelerated from zero to 60 in almost no time, rapidly closing the gap on a well-funded, scandal-free two-term incumbent who carried the White House imprimatur.
Whether Halter topples Lincoln or not — he had a slight edge in the most recent poll — the lesson many moderates will take from Arkansas is clear: Don’t mess with the left.
