At this point, it is Rob Simmons. I just got back from meeting Linda McMahon, and not impressed at all.

Depending on how things going, I might be the candidate I want to see win in 2010.

Robin Carnahan. A mix of the relative winnability of the seat and my feelings about her opponent.

Senate

Illinois: Giannoulias. From what I can tell, he is more in line with Illinois's views than Kirk, and I find that to be an important variable in how good a candidate one is. That, and i have little idea what Kirk truly stands for.
Delaware: Castle. The Senate, and Delaware, need more moderates/centrists; plus, Castle's views are fairly in-line with Delaware's, from what I can tell at least.
North Dakota: Hoeven. With Dorgan's sudden decision to retire, the seat is likely to end up back in Republican hands anyway - and the governor is currently their best option.
Massachusetts: Brown. Again, both the state and the Senate need more moderates.
Missouri: Carnahan. Blunt deals too much in right-wing extremes for my liking.
Kentucky: Paul. He is truly unique amongst the current crowd of Republicans, being strikingly Libertarian, and I find that particularly appealing - and apparently, so does Kentucky. The Libertarian movement deserves to gain ground, and their best hope for a good start is in Paul.
Florida: Rubio. Crist reminds me too much of the George Bush style of Republican.
Nevada: Lowden, narrowly. She strikes me as the better candidate to dethrone Reid than Tarkanian - stronger, and with more experience.
Pennsylvania: Sestak, if he manages to pull through in the primaries somehow. If not, Toomey. Anyone but Specter, frankly.
Oklahoma: Henry, if he decides to run. A rather out-there hope, I know, but I cannot stand Coburn.

Governors

Texas: Hutchison. Perry is as radical as right-wing radicals come, almost to the extent of Tom Coburn, and not to mention the whole deal about being Bush's former lieutenant governor.
Wyoming: Freudenthal. As someone who actually lives in Wyoming, I can personally vouch for Freudenthal's success and efficiency as a governor, as can most of the rest of the state's population. Even considering that it would mean overturning term limits, I support the idea of our governor running for a third term for one reason - Freudenthal works for Wyoming, and that works for me.

What a coincidence. Soon as I clicked Reply, I saw an ad for Alexi Giannoulias. *sp* He's a candidate I'd like to see win, just because he's hot Smiley

I love how no one on here has said Roy Blunt Smiley and yes, of course, I want Robin Carnahan to win. It'll be a close race (as all races in Missouri are) but she'll win, probably the only pickup Democrats will have on Election Night which will be canceled out by GOP net gains in other states. But, who knows, anything can happen in 10 months.

Robin Carnahan (D) running for Sen. Kit Bond's seat in Missouri.

My earlier comment notwithstanding, I do think that the site would be better off if Inks left his position. (The fact that the village idiot has dropped in to express his support for him only confirms this.)

Reid, Conway and Biden. Mostly because if they win it'll be an OK night nationally.

Oh, and PLEASE do not remove a competent grown up like Strickland for a supply side airhead like Kasich.

Just because someone is a Republican in Massachusetts does not mean they are a moderate.  Scott Brown is a pretty mainstream conservative who represents one of the most solidly Republican areas of the state.

Because 2010 is expected to be a wave election- favoring Republicans. The two Red State Democratic held seats- AR(Lincoln-D) and ND(OPEN- Dorgan-D)- will fall in the Republican column.  Looking at the competive US Senate Races.
I want Bennett(CO) to win re-election.
Bluementhal(CT) is favored to win the open 2010 US Senate Seat.
I want Beau Biden(DE) to defeat Mike Castle.
I want Kendrick Meek(FL) to win- but don't have a problem with Crist.
I want Alexi Giannoulias(IL) to defeat Mark Kirk.
I want Robin Carnahan(MO) to defeat Roy Blunt.
I want Paul Hodes (NH) to win.
I want Lee Fisher(OH) to defeat Bob Portman (OH).
I expect Specter(PA) and Reid(NV) to get re-elected.

I checked his website, myself, and was only going by what I read there. My point is that he seems more moderate than Coakley, who I can only assume will have Kennedy's views without having Kennedy's importance - and I say 'assume' because I looked at her site as well and found her Issues page suspiciously vague.

Why not just say you want all of the dems to win?
