Election Day Preview - Help Us Decide Which House Races to Cover

Tomorrow we will be hosting an all-day chat party while we watch the election returns. We will be doing massive election results updates right here on this site. The tables below are a preview of the data that we will be regularly posting through the evening. This is a coordinated effort of 7 individuals who will be scouring the returns to bring you the most up-to-date info on races that you can find on one screen AND chat about the results through the night.

We need your help! - We will post results of all gubernatorial and senate races, but we can’t do all 435 House races. We’ll do as many as we can - let us know in the comments below which races you would like to have listed. THANKS!

    UT2 - Philpot vs. Matheson

    Matheson is going down!

  2. Sean Bielat v. Barney Frank and Michael Grimm v. Michael McMahon are of particular interest to me because that are Red-promising races in Blue zones; and because they are on east coast, thus early-poll-closing contests. These races are also of interest here because as bellweathers of a potential Romney run which would, inevitably, call on Blue zones for support (especially in the Primaries). Also, “miss me yet?” Romney sentiment in Massachusetts ;-)

    @Steven Rosenberg Awesome suggestions, Steven. We’ll be sure to add them!

    Would love to see some “Miss me yet?” billboards up in the Boston area with Mitt’s head shot on them! :)

    I’m very interested in a real battle for the 47th District in Orange County, CA. Vietnamese refugee Van Tran(R) has taken on incumbent Loretta Sanchez(D). (Beginning back in 1975, CA welcomed many refugees from Viet Nam.) Sanchez won the seat in 1992 only by a few hundred questionable votes defeating Bob Dornan. Illegal alien voting was implicated in her victory.

    It’s a very notable and neck ‘n neck race right now. Romney endorsed Van Tran as part of his 10 for ’10 initiative and I heard Tran on the Mark Levin radio show last week. Levin gave a glowing endorsement of Tran. Rudy Giuliani came to Orange Co to help him, as well. Bill Clinton has stepped in to support to Sanchez.

    Ms. Sanchez took some heat for her recent statement: “The Vietnamese are trying to take over the district.” She injected race into the contest and now Asian Americans - who are traditionally Republicans - are very energized to give the victory to Van Tran.

    Here’s a link to a podcast giving a quick summary of Tran vs Sanchez:

    A summary of Tran’s remarkable back ground from his web page:

    Van’s family first came to America in 1975, evacuated by the U.S. Army a week before the fall of Saigon. Originally settling in Michigan, the family moved to Orange County while Van was in high school. Politically active during his university days, Assemblyman Tran started as an intern for Congressman Robert Dornan and for then State Senator (now Congressman) Ed Royce.

    Leading up to his historic election as the first Vietnamese-American in any state legislature, Van was the focus of broad media and public coverage. He was featured in the 2005 Republican Freedom Calendar alongside Colin Powell and Abraham Lincoln. Van’s biographical profile has been published in the Los Angeles Times, San Jose Mercury News, Orange County Register, Sacramento Bee, Grand Rapids Press (MI), and by the Associated Press.

    Prior to serving in the Assembly, Van was managing partner of his own law practice, served on the Garden Grove Planning Commission, and served as Vice-Mayor of Garden Grove, having garnered the highest number of votes in the history of a citys council election.

    His community involvement has been extensive, including as Vice Chairman of the Orange County based El Capitan District of the Boy Scouts of America. He is also a lifetime member of the prestigious American Council of Young Political Leaders, and a 2002 Delegate to the Young Leaders Conference, organized by the American-Swiss Foundation in Zurich, Switzerland. In 2004, OC Metro Magazine recognized Van as one of the Hottest 25 People in Orange County. The Orange County Register recognized him in 2001 as a person to watch.

    Van completed his Bachelors Degree in Political Science at the University of California, Irvine, and went on to earn both a Masters Degree in Public Administration and a Juris Doctorate from Hamline University School of Law in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Van and his wife Cyndi have two children, Alex and Sophie.

    How about he governors race in Mass. If Deval is defeated maybe a republican will set the US straight on the differences between Obama care and Mass care.

    I will be hoping for Philpot. I am making calls for him today and I am getting some positive responses. I am thinking that the race is close than the Dan Jones Poll reflects.

    Here’s another interesting congressional race - Arizona’s District 7. Ruth McClung - who is a 28 year old physicist - is in a very tight race against her Dem opponent (Grijalva). He encouraged the boycott against AZ over their immigration law.


  7. Curran says:

    MI-3 — Justin Amash v. Pat Miles

  8. Darlene Littlejohn says:

    STEVEN ROSENBLUM has an election that we need for him to win! FLORIDA - 89th State House.

  9. Jay says:

    Here’s one to watch: WI - 2. It might get interesting, as the District in which Madison sits has a Republican, pro-life, home-schooling, small government, low taxes, no bailouts, small business owner up against a 12 year incumbent. Chad Lee (R) vs. Tammy Baldwin (D) (incumbent).
