Debate coverage of House races -- you can help

A new blog is about to debut, covering candidate debates. We have the nation's top academic experts on political debate ready to go as front pagers on a scoop-based blog ready for diarists and commenters. There is a calendar there, rapidly getting filled in with the senatorial and gubernotorial candidate debates we will cover.
But even with MyDD's helpful list of top 60 House races we could use some help choosing races to cover.
So, why not turn to folks here since "The focus of MyDD is on elections, campaigns, and political infrastructure."
If you know of close, interesting races that will have debates, you can help by listing them in the comments or by e-mailing me at smithr @ wfu dot edu. Please include the race name (OH-05, e.g.) and the dates for the debates. If you have other info handy like links to local blogs that cover the races, the candidates' websites, and such, that's helpful, too.
If you want to make an argument as to why we should cover your race of interest, please do so. We are very open. Thanks.
If you have other thoughts about the project, those are welcome, too (although, as Chris warns, each blog has to be good at filling its own niche and cannot do everything people might want.)
