Hurtling Toward 2010, 10/1

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

Quinnipiac puts GOP challenger Pat Toomey ahead of Sen. Arlen Specter (D), 43-42; Harry Reid pointed out that newly announced GOP challenger Sue Lowden used to be one of his supporters; Dede Scozzafava (R) narrowly leads the race for New York's 23rd district; Kelly Ayotte (R) leads Rep. Paul Hodes (D) 41-34 in New Hampshire's Senate race; and the Cook Report moved Rep. Alan Grayson's (D-FL) reelection race into the "tossup" column, although he doesn't actually have a GOP challenger yet.
