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.

GA: AdMonitor – One Carries a Purse, the Other Carries Baggage

By · Jul, 29 2010

They’re off and running in the Georgia guber run-off and Karen Handel’s campaign isn’t holding any punches in its first TeeVee commercial.

She hits hard and the timing couldn’t be better. The news that her opponent’s auto salvage business has been the focus of a federal grand jury reinforces one of the central message of her ad, Nathan Deal is “a corrupt relic of Washington, DC.”

One wonders about the wisdom of using Sarah Palin’s endorsement at this stage, considering how pollsters are showing Palin-endorsed candidates in California and New Hampshire struggling with independents in general election matchups. Does Handel think a hug from Sarah won’t be as toxic to Southern candidates in the fall?
