Hurtling Toward 2010, 12/8

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

Massachusetts Democrats will vote today on their nominee for, and likely victor in, the race to replace Sen. Ted Kennedy, with state AG Martha Coakley favored over Rep. Michael Capuano in what's expected to be a low-turnout affair; Rep. Jerry Moran (R) leads Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R) by three percentage points in the Kansas GOP Senate primary, according to SurveyUSA; Rep. Barney Frank endorsed Rep. Joe Sestak (D-PA) over former Republican Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) in the state's Senate primary; and former WWE CEO and current Connecticut Senate candidate Linda McMahon is in DC do meet with Senate GOP leaders, but The Hill and Politico suggest that pro wrestling's history of dangerous conditions, no health insurance, and steroid use (which was the subject of congressional inquiry) could be a liability for her (h/t Swing State Project).
