Hurtling Toward 2010, 9/24

The 2010 midterms are just around the corner (sort of). Here's what's happening:

Massachusetts gained a senator today, as Gov. Deval Patrick (D) appointed Paul Kirk, formerly the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, to serve in place of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy until a special election is held; Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI) will not run for governor; a Club for Growh-commissioned poll shows New York's 23rd district race to succeed Rep. John McHugh (R) to be a three-way tossup; Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) insists she's running for governor, despite Gov. Rick Perry's (R) claim of skepticism; and a Marist poll reported that 62 percent of New Yorkers think the White House should mind its own business when it comes to Gov. David Paterson's (D) reelection plans.
