You know it’s going to be a tough election year when Russ Feingold (D-WI) is in a tight race. AP has the story, on his re-election bid and unexpected tight race. He is running for his fourth term in the Senate.
His likely opponent, Ron Johnson, is a businessman who has never ran for elected office before.
The story is similar for the CA-Gov race. Long-time favorite Jerry Brown is running dead-even with former CEO Meg Whitman, also rich and never ran for office before.
But it’s only July, most of these races don’t get “serious” serious until after Labor Day.
