Do the editors of the Southern Political Report know something the rest of us don’t? I sure hope so.
With two weeks to go before the election, SPR’s best guess is that the Southern Democrats will probably gain one governorship (AR), two US Senate seats (TN & VA), eight US House seats (FL 13, 16 & 22; KY 3 & 4; NC 11; TX 22 & VA2) — and we rate three more as toss-ups (KY2, NC8 & VA10).
Note that VA-10 is Judy Feder, Dean of Public Policy at Georgetown, against Frank Wolf. That’s a race where finite amounts of money could make a difference.
Policy wonks of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your speadsheets! You have a world to optimize!
