ALASKA: “A spokesman for U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski says she fully intends to caucus with Republicans if she wins re-election as a write-in candidate,” AP reports.
Alaska remains completely unpredictable: “A final Hays Research poll in Alaska, conducted for the Senate Democratic Campaign Committee, shows Joe Miller (R) leading the U.S. Senate race with 27%, followed by Scott McAdams (D) at 26% and "another candidate you have to write in" at 25%,” Political Wire writes.
COLORADO: Sarah Palin recorded a robo-call for Tom Tancredo, who’s running for governor on the American Constitution Party line.
This goes in the category of Duh. Michael Bennet apparently called into the wrong radio station, and wound up on a conservative radio show.
MASSACHUSETTS: “Staggered by the uprising that sent Republican Scott Brown to the US Senate in January, Massachusetts Democrats are unleashing a massive, aggressive, and potentially risky effort to get voters to the polls today,” the Boston Globe writes. “Democrats are targeting not only their urban strongholds, such as Boston, Cambridge, Worcester, and Springfield, but also areas of great Republican strength along the South Shore and on Cape Cod, the battleground for the open 10th Congressional District seat. Moreover, Democratic candidates are pooling their lists of supporters for a unified get-out-the-vote push, which means that they could be sending a voter to the polls who supports a local Democrat for a legislative office but opposes the party’s standard-bearer.”
NEVADA: The AP: “Last-minute and, at times, desperate get-out-the-vote drives picked up speed in the state and across the country, with some key races, like Reid-Angle, so close that they could be decided by just a couple of votes per precinct.”
NEW YORK: “On the final, frenzied day of the campaigning, Carl Paladino tried to connect with voters through an emotional online video. Paladino says his long-held desire to help people morphed into an unlikely run for governor after the death of his son, Patrick, in a car accident last year,” The New York Daily News writes.
PENNSYLVANIA: “Philadelphia's four suburban counties, home to one in five Pennsylvania voters, are the focus of much attention from U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak, a Democrat, and former Congressman Pat Toomey, a Republican, in the final days of the campaign," AP writes. Registration among the 1.7 million voters in the four ‘collar’ counties -- Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery -- is nearly balanced between Democrats and Republicans.”
TEXAS: Get ready for a whole lot more Rick Perry. The Republican is likely to win his reelection bid for governor today, and after that, he’s expected to embark on a national book tour. Once North Dakota Gov. John Hoeven, running for the Senate, steps down as governor, Perry will be the longest-serving active governor in the country.
WISCONSIN: “With their campaigns winding down ahead of Election Day, Wisconsin's two U.S. Senate candidates are replacing their attacks against each other with positive ads about themselves,” the AP writes. “The race between Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold and Republican challenger Ron Johnson never turned as nasty as some campaigns in other states did. Still, both candidates have run negative ads that sometimes blurred the lines between accuracy and embellishment.”
