Washington Post on Hostettler/Ellsworth 2006 race

The good news is that the Post mentions the race as one of ten Congressional races to watch. The bad news is that it is ranked least likely of the ten to change seats.

10) Indiana’s 8th district – Rep. John Hostettler (R): Yes, we know Hostettler does almost nothing incumbents typically do – raise money, for one – and still always managed to win reelection in this southern Indiana district. And, yes, we know that Democrats tout their candidate in this seat every two years only to be disappointed on Election Night.

Least of ten isn't saying that the Democratic candidate isn't likey to win. I think making the list says that they are likely to win. I know you do too.

Well, I certainly hope so. I have seen a few good candidates fail against Hostettler, so I cannot be too optimistic.
