People in other states can do what they want. If they want those people (the one's you listed), I hope they get the government they want, although I doubt it.

In my state, (of the major candidates) I'm voting for 2 republicans (including Snyder for governor), 2 democrats, 1 libertarian and 1 green party.

I am not voting any judges who campaigned on being "tough on crime".
I want judges "tough on the law".

I am also voting against re-writing the state constitution.

1. Sharron Angle (partly because I want to see Joy-less's
response on The Spew)
2. Tom Corbett for governor of PA
3. Christine O'Donnell (I don't live in Delaware; but see no. 1)
4. Pat Toomey
5. Meg Whitman (I don't live in California either; but see no. 1)

I threw 2 governor races in there because the governors are going to have to react to the census and redraw their districts leading to more GOP wins down the road. I actually think the Ohio governor's race is the most important race of the night.

In my own state, I just don't think there will be any surprises.

The shoe-in's like Rand Paul don't need rooting for, they made their case.

Angle-Nevada, to take out Reid
Fiorina-Cali, to take out Boxer
Rossi-Washington, to take out Murry
Beliat-Mass, to take out Frank
McMahon-Conn, to take out Blumenthal

I'd say:

Kasich (don't agree with him on social issues but he is one of the few with any valid comments on the economy. Ohio is losing house seats & they already had an R tilt in districting so I doubt he makes more than a 1 seat diference in reapportioning. This reasonign is also based on my hunch that Ohio will be ground zero for Dem losses this year.)

Angle (because she will be great for the Democratic Party.)

Bennett in Colorado. He has experience outside of politics & his opponent is a nut.

Natalie Dupree for the SC US Senate seat!!! (if you saw what the two parties were offering you would understand.)

Murkowski in Alaska. If she makes it in without part support I think she will act much more freely as a Senator. We have so few Senators who will do that at this point and we need more since the R/Ds will be pretty locked up.
