Hurtling Toward 2010, 8/11

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

Rep. Dean Heller (R-NV) won't challenge Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid; with Rep. Carolyn Maloney out of New York's Democratic Senate primary, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D) picked up another endorsement from a congressman; and Chicago Urban League President Cheryle Jackson entered the primary to replace Sen. Roland Burris (D) in Illinois, giving State Treasurer and primary favorite Alexi Giannoulias a challenger.
