Hurtling Toward 2010, 11/19

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

Former Ambassador to Latvia Cathy Bailey might jump into the GOP Senate primary in Kentucky; a Public Policy Polling survey has Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan leading Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO) 45-44 in Missouri's Senate race; independent candidate Tim Cahill is helping out Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick (D) in his reelection race; the GOP Senate primary in New Hampshire figures to be a tough one; and House GOP leaders pressed their colleagues to put up some more cash to help the National Republican Congressional Committee.
