The great Michael Barone suspects that Midwestern Democrats Earl Pomeroy of North Dakota and Leonard Boswell of Iowa are in trouble.
I’d add one note to his analysis; I’m wondering about how the top-of-the-ticket candidates will impact the House races this year.
In both these races, the House Democrats will be swimming against the tide. In North Dakota, Gov. John Hoeven is running for Senate, and currently clings to a 43-percentage-point lead over Tracy Potter. In Iowa, former governor Terry Branstad leads current governor Chet Culver by 16 percentage points.
