1. I would rather have Mr. Cordray stay in DC and run against Rod Portman

in 2016 so he could represent me in DC...

6. Brunner shot herself in the foot by bucking the party so she will have trouble

raising money. Coleman is formidable and can a take a good shot at Kashich, forcing him to raise money.

7. Which Republican statewide official is easy to defeat

Kasich or Portman.

Portman has to deal with Hillary being on top of the ticket in 2016.

8. If we can get him it would be in 16...

Kasich is going to be hard to beat simply because he plays well in Ohio. He's still pretty moderate and he wont scare away suburban republicans.

11. I think Tim Ryan could run well against Portman,

if he gets enough money behind him.
He's a great speaker on his feet, passionate - all the things Portman is not.

9. I think a charismatic Dem could beat Rob Portman

as Portman is rather bland, doesn't fire people up;OTOH, he does not do outrageous things. I don't know at this time who the charismatic Dem is/will be. It helps to have own money, and Portman and family have that.

Betty Sutton, Congresswoman gerrymandered out of office, is talking about running for governor. I don't know - she could be good, but not sure.
Whoever runs against Kasich will have to be able to give as good as he gets. - Kasich can be mean.

10. I wonder how much Crist's wife mothering problems

will affect Crist politically.
The situation, as reported, certainly doesn't make her a sympathetic figure.

16. Sink could seek a rematch or challenge water boy in 2016.

Iorio or Rich could be the Democratic nominees against Scott.

12. How many of these are sacrificial lambs?

I'm looking at White in TX- I don't know anything about him, but that has to be a tough race, no matter who's running on the other side.

Is O'Malley termed limited -out in MD?
Who the heck is Hanger in PA?

14. These are top tier candidates who announced or are likely to be the Democratic nominee.

Bill white- mayor of Houston will be running against Perry,Dewhurst,or Abbott.
O'Malley-MD is term limited.
Hanger is PA state EPA chair.
Polls show him performing well against Corbett- PPP shows him trailing by 4 points, while other Democratic candidates- McCord,Schwartz,and Sestak were trailing by 6-7 points. The only Democrat that was performing better than Hanger is Nutter.

15. You forgot NJ even though the media here are sucking up to Christy as UNBEATABLE!!!!

I remember Jim Florio was supposed to coast to reelection and the polling had him leading the election well guess what happened he lost to Whitman. And we got SCREWED!!! she raided our Police And Fireman's Pension system of millions of dollars to balance the states budget and the Pension system hasn't been the same since.Arrogant ass comes in to office and starts blaming the state workers need to pay more into the pension system to save it.In 2011 they passed this supposedly pension reform that did nothing but take the state out of paying there share of the money

18. Florio a great public servant who should have served 2 terms as Governor.

Been the Democratic nominee for the US Senate in 2000 instead Corzine, Florio would be in his 3rd term as US Senator- instead of Menendez.
NJ voters wanted to punish Florio for raising taxes in order to balance the budget,fix the public schools,etc..
