That the Northeast has been trending blue in recent cycles is self evidently true. Will it continue in 2010?
Below the fold for all the details and hey go check out the <a href="http://wiki.opencongress.org/wiki/Project:RaceTracker">2010 Race Tracker Wiki over at Open Congress</a> for all your House, Senate and Gubernatorial needs.

We had a pretty good night on election night in the Northeast. We cleaned house. We nailed 1 GOP Senator, 6 House of Reps Districts, 1 State Senate and held on to all of the State Senates, State Houses, US House Reps and US Senators we had coming into this cycle.
That the Northeast is rapidly realigning towards team Blue is undeniable!
But the work my friends has merely begun. Forget the bunkum about us being irretrievably on defense in 2010 come below the fold to see who should be in our sights in 2010 as we stay on offense in the Northeast........

Filing closes Tuesday in PA and the nuffies at the PA elections office have this candidate list that is waaaaaaaaaay inaccurate (I hope that more than 2 incumbent congressional Dems have nominated): http://www.dos.state.pa.us/bcel/lib/bcel
And I know that counties accept candidate petitions but could not find one damn county that listed candidates (I checked 10).
Lucky for Rex Freedom and the Barry Welsh for IN 6 campaign with that list we all know and love that I have linking to and contributing to for a few months now. - http://www.barrywelsh.org/fiftystate/ind
A quick squiz at the PA section of that page says that 17/19 districts are taken care of with only the 5th and 9th to go (and they are in pink)!
Below the fold for more.................

Question: How do you know you are a house wonk?
Answer: When you are waiting with baited breath to see if Ken Lucas files in KY 4!
Question: How do you know you are a house wonk AND REALLY need to get a life?

It's great to see the gang at the Barry Welsh campaign updating their 2006 congressional races page:
In particular welcome back "Rex".
I wrote these diaries:
to keep the ball rolling to get 434/435 districts filled (again damn you TX 11).
However the gang over at Barry Welsh have not listed all of the candidates I have as is their perogative so below the fold let me run through why they should be counted. Oh yeah and a newby enters the fray too.
