Congressional Elections Guessing Game

Assignment: Let's do our own guessing and pre-election analysis about which Congressional seats the Republicans and the Dems will either keep or swap this election. You know who is up in your district and who the opponent is. Let me know the state, district, and opponents PLUS your best guess of which candidate will win the outcome of the election. We know McCain-Fiengold did a lot to undermine our election process, cutting off free speech and all but this game won't violate those draconian ad laws. We won't be running ads. Just having fun. We'll see who wins our guesses. If anyone is unopposed, note that too. I'll start off: Virginia: Thelma Drake vs. Kellam in Virginia's 2nd District. Thelma Drake to win. George Allen vs. Webb for a Senate Seat. George Allen to win. We'll have to create our own charts at home for the seats in our states and maybe a chart for the 15-20 most highly competitive seats nation-wide. You can help me with the most contested seats in your state. There are a few hot campaigns out there. The Dems need to "pick up" 15 seats and hold on to the ones they have. Pennsylvania: In PA, Rick Santorum (R-incumbent) vs. Bob Casey (D). Liberally Conservative predicts Casey wins. [I think this will be a very close, nail-biting race.] Indiana: 9th congressional race. Mike Sodrel (R) incumbent vs. Baron Hill (D) former congressman. Looks like HIll to regain his seat. It's a shame. Sodrel's a good guy and Hill voted with the Socialists on every issue he showed up to vote on. In Indiana's 9th, Ol' BC predicts Hill to reclaim his seat. Maryland: - a good pick from Liberally Conservative, a.k.a, The Walrus (see above) Lt. Gov. Michael Steele (R) vs. Ben Cardin (D). Steele is moving up and Walrus picks Steele by 2.5%. North Carolina: Vernon Robinson in the Winston-Salem, NC area. Robinson (R) is running against Brad Miller (D - incumbent) . I pick Robinson. Drop by his web site. He has some great ads. Running in a district drawn by none other than Mr. Miller himself, Mr. Robinson is seen in a tough race but he can win. Help him if you can. Connecticut: Lieberman to win over Lament(sp). I don't know what's happening to the Republican candidate up there but I'll bet Lieberman wins by a landslide, put into office by Republican voters.

I've studied poll after poll after poll and this is not good.

Maybe a strong ad campaign and a good stretch run makes me wrong. One could only hope my prediction fails miserably.

Hope you are wrong but it hasn't been looking good for Rick. I think Republican leadership did the wrong thing by backing Specter two years ago. I think they needed a new, younger team with less "history" and that that would have helped Santorum now. We'll see.

On Nov. 7, we will all be up channel surfing to find the results from state to state. When Norm Coleman was running, I was up all night. It's all gonna get heavy now with ads, et al. I'm working for my candidates and it takes the grassroots.

Maryland Senate race Lt. Gov. Michael Steele (R) vs. Ben Cardin (D).

Steele is slowing coming closer to Cardin, wiping out once double-digit deficits in polls.

Steele wins by 2.5%

Rick Santorum is arrogant and a sell out. He sold out senior citizens. He voted to cut medicaid and medicare funding to those who rely on it. Rick santorum is an embarassment to Pennsylvania. He is never in the state unless it is election time, other then that it seems he is only in office for a paycheck.
He is like John Kerry, he has waffled on many issues.
I can see exactly why Bob Casey is ahead in polls. The Democrats chose a good candidate, because Bob Casey is a pro-life and opposses gun control.
Twelve years of embassassment is enough. Rick santorum is not very popular in the state he supposedly represents.

State Senate race in MO, Jim Talent (R)incumbent vs Clair McCaskill(D)

Then have been calling this race close but I think Talent by at least 5 or 10 points. McCaskill has gone into full moonbat mode lately with some of the wildest statements imaginable.
