That the Northeast has been trending blue in recent cycles is self evidently true. Will it continue in 2010?

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........

Louisiana has had their jungle primary and Democrats held on to the both chambers of the state legislature, the Lieutenant Governorship, and are heading into run offs for Agriculture Commissioner and Attorney General. Before these runoffs are held, Kentucky and Mississippi will have similar statewide elections on November 6. Additionaly, New Jersey and Virginia will be electing large portions of their state legislatures. Going into these elections, I'd like us to have an opportunity to focus on these somewhat overlooked 2007 elections. Before going forward, I will admit that I am not an expert on any of these states and these threads are mostly here for feedback from the forum users. Today, I'll focus on Mississippi.

The Republican Party holds a 23-18 lead in the Delaware House. We have a chance tomorrow in HD-07 to make that 22-19. Wouldn't it be nice to turn another state from Purple to Blue. The Special Election arose because Republican Majority Leader Wayne Smith walked out of the House though the revolving door to become President and CEO of the Delaware Healthcare Association, the industry group for hospital and HMOs. It's nice to know that Mr. Smith is going to get compensated for his work in the House.
The Democratic candidate is Bryon Short. He's an entrepreneur and former aide to Sen. Carper.

Pennsylvania's days as a Swing State are over; today the Keystone State is solid blue. Not only did Democrats defeat four incumbent GOP congressmen in the state, but today Democrats won the final State House recount to regain control of the State house.
Congratulations to Dem Leader William DeWeese and the new Democratic majority in the PA State House!
