The State Houses – What’s At Stake in 2010

Thirty-nine states will be electing a governor during the 2009-2010 election cycle. Of these, eighteen races will not include an incumbent and four incumbents who will be running were not elected to their current position. The recession and huge budget deficits threaten to undercut the power of incumbency for governors running for reelection.

TX: AdMonitor – Living in the Lap of Luxury

Texas Democrats and their allies have hit upon a theme they believe can undercut Rick Perry’s re-election effort. They’re portraying the ¬†governor as an out-of-touch elitist and part-time governor.

A new ad from the Back to Basics PAC hammers the message yet again, contrasting his willingness to impose budget cuts on state programs with his profligate spending on his luxurious lifestyle.

The ad concludes with “Rick Perry, he’ll cut the budget for kids, but not his wine list.”
