Hurtling Toward 2010, 10/20

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

The Washington Post endorsed Democrat Creigh Deeds in the 2009 Virginia gubernatorial race; The Club for Growth will start airing a TV ad today in New York's 23rd district supporting Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman, who is running against Republican Dede Scozzafava and Democrat Bill Owens; the DCCC outraised the NRCC 2-1 in September; conservative GOP Senate candidate Marco Rubio scored an endorsement from Sen. James Inhoge (R-OK) in his primary against Gov. Charlie Crist; and Rasmussen has Democrat Alexi Giannoulias and Republican Mark Kirk tied in a putative race for President Obama's old Senate seat.
