For next Tuesday's Ohio primaries, the races of note are OH-02 (Schmidt has a primary challenger), OH-03 (Dem primary, open seat), and OH-09 (our first of several incumbent-on-incumbent smackdowns, Kaptur vs. Kucinich).

Nobody seems to care, but Jean Schmidt looks to be in a bit of trouble; she's ahead 49-41, but her lead appears to only be because of the small rural counties that are mostly in.

Joyce Beatty narrowly leads Mary Jo Kilroy in OH-03, while Kaptur/Kucinich is probably going to be very close.

Republican wunderkind Josh Mandel is only getting 62% in his primary, against a bunch of nobodies.

Looks like Joyce Beatty will be the next Congresswoman from OH-03, not Mary Jo Kilroy.

Also, I don't think Kucinich has much of a chance at this point.

Kucinich is toast, and it looks like Jean Schmidt will narrowly lose as well.

lol at the first and second district Democratic primaries, too. Oh, and the "plumber" is Kaptur's GE opponent.

So next week is Alabama and Mississippi. Not much going on, just some challengers to incumbents in AL-01, 05, 06, and MS-02. Parker Griffith, for some inexplicable reason, is running again in AL-05.

Bumping for tomorrow's AL/MS primaries. One of the Democrats running for the Senate in Mississippi is named Albert Gore Jr. Just putting that out there.

You know, personally, I'm hoping Alabama puts Bachus on the curb. His opponents might be crazies, certainly, but that's nothing new for Alabama - particularly his district - and probably represents them far better than the Chairman of the House Banking Committee does.

Bachus is sleazy, hopefully he gets booted. Also hoping Kinzinger wins next week.

Who exactly is running against Bachus and has there been any polling from the new AL-06?

Also this. Generic Republican though he may be, I prefer new faces like him to old windbags like Manzullo.

State Rep. Scott Beason and Judge David Standridge - essentially Tea Party and Roy Moore lite. As to polling, I don't believe anyone's touched Alabama yet.

Neither of Bachus's opponents have raised much money. I wouldn't bank on an upset there, especially since there would be a runoff.

5/29 Texas
7/31 Texas (runoff)

Thanks, added to OP.

That shady anti-incumbent superPAC has spent six-figures against Bachus though.

How? Pretty sure this is the most affluent district in Alabama. (Though I guess Mobile might beat it if its Blacks were excised like Birmingham's?)

And that was uneventful. No incumbents lost. Albert Gore is the nominee in Mississippi.

I disagree that nothing significant happened on the congressional front.  It is important to note that Bonner and Nunnelee (and to a lesser degree Bachus, since Beason had plenty of problems of his own) won by less than they should have.  As was pointed on DKE, incumbents losing is not the only measure of anti-incumbent sentiment.  It seems clear that many Republicans (and I suspect many Democrats, but their is currently less evidence on that front) are not happy with THEIR congressmen (as opposed to being angry at everyone else's congressmen).  I'm not saying 2012 is going to be some mass anti-incumbent tidal wave.  I'm just saying that this is an important, albeit predictable, development.
