The Campaign Spot

A House Race to Keep an Eye on

I am composing my thoughts on Cheney’s speech, and the reaction in the room, but I want to point out that the National Republican Congressional Committee has gotten their man — er, woman — in a district that should be pretty low-hanging fruit in the 2010 cycle: Montgomery City Councilwoman Martha Roby will take on Democratic Rep. Bobby Bright in Alabama’s 2nd district. This is one of those districts where the chances of knocking off the incumbent are greatly influenced by geography. The NRCC wanted to find a candidate who was popular and had an independent base of support in Montgomery; other parts of the district lean more Republican and could very well spell the difference between victory and defeat. Bright won his seat by about 1,800 votes in 2008.
