According to the Associated Press, the Democrats have picked up the Missouri Governorship, bringing their lead among Governorships to 29 to 21 (assuming no other flips tonight). Congratulations to Jay Nixon, Missouri's Governor-elect.
Update [2008-11-4 22:30:10 by Jonathan Singer]: Bev Perdue has also won the North Carolina Governorship in a tough, close race, holding the seats for the Democrats.

This is an update on my previous list. I have compiled a list of good candidates in twenty states based on my own research, Progressive Majority, and the Indigenous Democratic Network. This is in NO WAY intended to be comprehensive for any of these states, and I may re-post as new endorsements and new states get updated. But I am one person trying to do all I can. I think there are some fabulous candidates, from Senate right down to school board, in many of these states. So please vote for these candidates, spread the word in your state (if appropriate), and add your own endorsements. Again, don't rag on me if I missed some one. I know I missed people. But I did the best round up I could of as many states as I could and am on the verge of collapsing.
Please pass this along and, if applicable, take any helpful info with you to the polls.

You can tell a lot about candidates' internal polling, which at this point surely involves knowledge of early polling results, by where their campaigns are sending them during the last days of the campaign.

Awesome news & hopefully a very telling sign for November.
St. Louis, Missouri has just announced that 100,000 are in attendance in Sen. Barack Obama's rally today.
This would be Senator Obama's Largest Rally ever in the United States. This would surpass the 80,000 attendance that graced his Invesco Field Acceptance speech.
It would also be the largest political rally in the state of Missouri.
Obama's previous largest audience was the 200,000 rally at Berlin, Germany.
CNN also stated that this is a very good sign for the Obama campaign. To get 100,000 just over two weeks away from election day is nothing but good news.
People are mad,angry,concerned & ready for Real Change!

Scaling the Mountains and Molehills of the "Voter Registration Fraud" Controversy
Weekly Voting Rights News Update
By Erin Ferns and Michael McDunnah
With a constant barrage of allegations against ACORN and other voter registration organizations coming from the McCain-Palin campaign and the Republican National Committee in recent weeks, it's worthwhile to take a look back at this ongoing war between partisan forces on the right and community based voter registration drives--a war that has largely been fought in the media and nowhere else, and which has threatened to drown out real issues in these crucial weeks before the election.
