Illinois Primary: First in the Nation
By Nathan L. Gonzales

Off-year gubernatorial elections in New Jersey and Virginia and the Senate special election in Massachusetts have kept things exciting, but the 2010 elections officially begin early next month in the Land of Lincoln. With competitive races for governor and U.S. Senate and multiple House races, it’s a great place to start.

Subscribers to the print edition get a rundown of the senate and gubernatorial primaries as well as races in the 10th and 14th congressional districts.

Ohio 15: It’s Not 2008 Anymore
By Nathan L. Gonzales

The terrain is the same but the environment is very different in Ohio’s 15th District, where freshman Cong. Mary Jo Kilroy (D) and former state Senator Steve Stivers (R) will face off for the second consecutive election cycle.
Less than a percentage point separated the two candidates in 2008, and Kilroy got to Congress with the lowest winning percentage of any Democrat last cycle.

With Republicans positioned for significant gains in the House nationwide, Kilroy’s seat is in the first tier of seats to fall in a good Republican year. But Democrats are confident they have enough ammunition to take down Stivers once again. The question will be if voters are willing to listen.

Subscribers get the lay of the land, candidate bios, money information, and how it plays out.
