Indiana Burning: Losses Signal Long Night for Democrats

By: Tuesday November 2, 2010 5:08 pm

If the rest of the country looks like Indiana tonight, Democrats might as well just go to bed early and duck.

At the beginning of the day, Democrats held 5 House seats in Indiana, and Republicans held 3. At the moment, Democrats are only ahead in one, the Indianapolis-area seat held by Andre Carson. And even that is only a 53.5-43.2 lead at this point. Baron Hill, Joe Donnelly and Peter Visclosky are all down, though Visclosky’s seat is extremely early and I assume Gary is not in. In addition, the open seat vacated by Brad Ellsworth looks like a Republican win at this point as well.

FDL’s Hot House 100: (10/25 Update) Now Two More Congressional Races to Watch

By: Monday October 25, 2010 1:30 pm

I’m adding two seats, KY-06 and NE-01, to the FDL Election Hot House list (making it the Hot House 100!) because recent public polling has shown both races within five points. I’m also updating four other House seats–HI-01, MA-04, MA-10 and MI-01–to reflect new public polling information.
