Hurtling Toward 2010, 12/1

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

Ohio Senate candidate Jennifer Brunner, Massachusetts Senate candidate Martha Coakley, and Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) are all against the Afghanistan troop increase; Rep. Carol Shea-Porter (D-NH) will face a crowded field of Republican challengers; Sen. John Ensign (R-NV) says he won't resign, because it would hurt Republicans' chances of unseating Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV); and now that Bill Slaton has dropped his bid, the Democratic field is clear for Dr. Ami Bera (D) to challenge Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA).
