GOP Looks To Make A Northeast Comeback
Stuart Rothenberg in The Rothenberg Political Report analyzes Republicans chances for gaining gubernatorial and congressional seats heading into 2010.
For New York, he believes that Jim Tedisco has a good chance of grabbing Sen. Kirsten Gillenbrand's open seat in the 2oth congressional district. He also sees Greg Ball being able to defeat Democrat Rep. Jim Hall in the 19th district.
As for major contests in the Northeast, Rothenberg believes that former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie could defeat NJ Gov. Jon Corzine in 2009 and that Sen. Chris Dodd could be in trouble for re-election in Connecticut.
