Dino Rossi, the loser of te 2004 governor's race in Washington, has decided to take on incumbent Patty Murray. First elected in 1992, Murray is looking for a fourth term in what should be her hardest election to date. A doctrinaire liberal, Murray is a leader in the Democratic caucus and should, in a normal year, be the odds-on favorite to win in November. In 2004, Rossi lost the governor's race by a little over a hundred votes in a recount process where he led for about four weeks and then was declared the loser as additional votes from Democratic King County kept popping up. A moderate, Rossi is proabably the only Republican who has a real shot at beating Murray and I give him about a 50% chance to do so. This is how I see the Senate races right now:
Flip to GOP:
Florida-If Charlie Christ does win the election with which party will he caucus? Nobody knows.
