In Oregon's 1st Congressional District, a special election will take place next Tuesday to replace the crazy and corrupt David Wu who resigned last summer. The 1st District is strongly Democratic but the GOP candidate, Rob Cornilles, has been surging of late and may pull off a mild upset on Tuesday. All ballot are mailed in so it shouldn't take the clerk of courts too long on Tuesday to announce the winner.
In Arizona, Gabby Giffords resigned this week which sets up a special election in June to fill a seat that slightly favors Republicans. Giffords won the seat in the Democratic wave of 2006 and barely held on in 2010 after a nasty campaign. I predict a GOP win in the Arizona's 8th Congressional District.
