Tossups- MN, GA (due to likely runoff)

In regards to the House races, there appear to be an increasingly large number of tossups in that once safe GOP districts become more engaged, especially as the DCCC has poured money into races once not thought of as competitive. At the same time the majority of Open GOP seats appear poised for Dem pickups, but as the RCCC has pulled out of some seats they feel are unsalvageable and poured money into other competitive races, they may be saving a few seats from Dem takeover.


@Colin- Are you flirting with me? :) I've never had a Canadian that wasn't on ice before! ;) I've also never been with a conservative gay before. You don't like Obama, right? What are your feelings about Hillary? We will have to wait and see. I have very high political standards for potential beaus. lol...

hmm.....flirting? me? =) lol

You know, gay conservatives DO exist...why do people have such a hard time with that? lol As for Obama, I don't know if I have ever felt more strongly about someone not getting elected. As for be completely open and honest with you, I didn't like her at all before the primary season began. Through it all, I grew to have an immense respect for her as a human being and a politician. My impression was that she was just power hungry, but I now believe that my impression was largely influenced by the media. When she really started to open up and show some vulnerability...she proved to me there was a real person in there. So, to make a long story short, I felt for her tremendously at the end of it all (and yes, I believe Obama did everything in his power to destroy her). Between you and me (don't tell my conservative but I would have been okay with her being president if she had won. I know that doesn't sound very emphatic, but that says a lot given how I felt a year ago. As for your political standards for potential beaus...I have them as of mine is someone who stands up for what is right. I think you do that and I respect you greatly for it. =)
