Hurtling Toward 2010, 10/30

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

Democracy Corps has Gov. Jon Corzine (D) leading his re-election race 43-38 over Republican Chris Christie; but a Daily Kos/Research 2000 poll shows Christie moving into a 42-41 lead; another Daily Kos/Research 2000 poll shows a dead heat between Democrat Bill Owens and Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman in New York's 23rd district special election, with Republican Dede Scozzafava trailing them by double digits; Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) got an endorsement from Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R); Dick Cheney, meanwhile, endorsed Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R), Perry's primary opponent; and former Rep. Heather Wilson (R-NM) is running for governor.
