Hurtling Toward 2010, 12/10

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

Rep. Brian Baird (WA), another Democratic incumbent from a competitive district, will retire; and Democrats have already landed a recruit in state Rep. Deb Wallace, who has announced her candidacy; a GOP recruit, state Rep. Jamie Herrera, is also running; Republicans are hoping Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN) who chairs the House Agriculture Committee, will retire as well after he told local press he won't make a final decision on it until January or February; and Rasmussen shows Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) leading his primary opponent, Rep. Joe Sestak, 48-35 but trailing GOP challenger Pat Toomey 46-42.
