Midterms: What about Bob (Bennett?)

Roll Call looks at Democrats running against Washington this fall. 
 
ARKANSAS: The Hill looks at how 27-year-old Sarah Huckabee came to be Rep. John Boozman's campaign manager. Boozman's running for Senate. "Huckabee's upcoming wedding, showers and related events were enough to give her pause. After all, her dad had already paid for the wedding and the invitations had been sent. 'I said, 'John, I don't think you understand -- literally one week after the primary, I'm getting married, and then I'm going on my honeymoon,'' she recalls. Boozman replied that 'the most important thing you'll do all year is get married' and reassured her that they would work around whatever other wedding-related events she needed to attend, she says. Boozman's first campaign crisis was averted. Huckabee accepted the job." 
 
GEORGIA: A special election to replace Rep. Nathan Deal will take place April 27. 
 
ILLINOIS: Democratic Senate candidate Alexi "Giannoulias is a dead man walking," Chicago Sun-Times columnist Laura Washington writes. "Once President Obama's operatives finish sweeping up their sloppy health-care reform effort, they will turn their attention to holding on to the party's congressional majorities. A key agenda item: finding a new nominee to preserve Obama's Senate seat." 
 
MICHIGAN: A Marketing Resource Group poll shows Republican gubernatorial candidate Pete Hoekstra tied at 21% with his Democratic opponent Mike Cox, with Republican Rick Snyder trailing by only one point at 20%. 
 
NEW YORK: Andrew Cuomo still tops all comers: In a new Siena poll, he leads "newly announced Democrat-turned-Republican gubernatorial hopeful Steve Levy, the Suffolk County executive, by an even bigger margin in the race for governor than he'd crush GOP front-runner Rick Lazio." He beats Lazio 59%-21% and Levy 63%-16%. And his popularity is "unchanged with the voters -- 63 percent favorable to 22 percent unfavorable -- from a Siena survey two weeks ago, a markedly different finding than a recent Marist College poll suggesting Cuomo's rating dropped sharply as he probed alleged misconduct by Gov. Paterson." 
 
PENNSYLVANIA: Rep. Jason Altmire may face a challenge from a Pennsylvania labor leader "irate" over his vote against health care reform: "Jack Shea, the president of the Allegheny County Labor Council, said he is considering a challenge to the McCandless Democrat in either the primary or general elections."   
 
UTAH: Today is the first round of narrowing the Democratic and Republican candidate fields as neighborhood caucuses take place. "It is a particularly important day for three-term Sen. Bob Bennett, R-Utah, and the seven conservatives who are challenging him from the right," Deseret News reports. "They report frenetic efforts to ensure their supporters attend the caucuses and are elected. Democrats also have two candidates in that Senate race."
