What Races Are You Watching?

What races are you particularly interested in? Any local elections that have your attention?

In my case, the Frederick County commissioners race is the interesting one. There is a deep divide between the pro-growth and smart growth candidates and it will be interesting to see the results. Of the slow growth folks, I have a special interest in seeing how Kai Hagen does. A smart man with a good heart, he's been a real gift to this county and it would be wonderful to see him in a position to do some good work.

Nationwide, the race that most has my eye is the Tester/Burns race in Montana. Man, would it be wonderful to have a flat-topped, burly, organic farmer in the senate instead of an Abramoff crony.

What's got your attention?
