Here is a list of the races to watch next Tuesday. Anyone care to make predictions on the outcomes: 1. Virginia Governor's race (Deeds-D; McDonnell-R) 2. New Jersey Governor's race (Corzine-D; Christie-R; Dagget-I) 3. New York 23rd House race (Owens-D; Hoffman-C) Scozzafava-R has dropped out. 4. California 10th House race (Tauscher-D; Harmer-R) My predictions: 1. Virginia, Deeds is a goner, McDonnell by 10+ 2. New Jersey, this race has tightened tremendously in the last month, but I think Corzine peaked just about a week too early, Christie is starting to move back up slowly and the independent candidate Dagget's support appears to be softening as people realize it is a choice between voting for Christie, or having four more years under Corzine. I give this to Christie by 2-4 points. To add--Barack Obama has been all over the state campaigning for Corzine--Bill Clinton has joined him. The problem--New Jersey is one of the highest taxed states in the nation. Citizens are complaining that they can no longer afford to live in N.J. & they & business are leaving the state in hoards. Is it possible that citizens in N.J are starting to think a little more conservative? (If after all this campaigning from Obama--& Christie wins over Corzine or even loses in close election--this will shake the democrat party to it's core--as N.J. is the bluest of blue states.) 3. New York 23rd. Since rino republican Scozzafava has dropped out, Hoffman supported by Sarah Palin & other heavyweights in the Republican party is a sure win over Owens. 4. California 10th. This is a little watched race, the republican Harmer R against Tauscher D. Harmer according to the polls is within striking distance. I'll go out on a limb here & say Harmer--simply because Californian's like New Jerseyan's are sick & tired of a big spending high taxing liberal government. To add--Californians recently overwhelmingly voted down a tax increase. So they too may be thinking a little more conservative. So--I'll go out on a limb & call this 4 for 4 for the GOP.
