2009/2010: The replacements

CALIFORNIA: The race to replace Hilda Solis in Congress is underway: "At first glance, given the demographics of the district -- about half of Democratic voters are Hispanic -- state Sen. Gil Cedillo (D) should be favored to replace Solis in a race that, for now, also includes State Board of Equalization Chairwoman Judy Chu (D) and former investment banker Emanuel Pleitez (D). But conventional wisdom in this race could be turned on its head in several ways."
 
ILLINOIS: The Hill checks in with the Democratic race to succeed Rahm Emanuel. Three Democrats have emerged. 
 
KENTUCKY: "Bunning's office originally misspelled Ginsburg's name in the statement but later corrected it. Meanwhile, Republican Kentucky state Senate President David Williams would not rule out a possible run in the primary. Williams has met with the National Republican Senatorial Committee, the GOP campaign arm in Washington, according to a person familiar with the situation who requested anonymity because the meeting was private." 
 
MISSOURI: Roy Blunt's decision to run for the Senate has set off a flurry for the Republican nomination to replace him. 
 
NEW YORK: And Bill Clinton will headline a Kirsten Gillibrand fundraiser March 11 in New York City.
