The Washington Post highlights the ten most likely Congressional seats to change hands:
9. Georgia’s 8th District (Currently D): Retired Gen. Rick Goddard is the crown jewel in House Republicans’ candidate recruiting to date, but has drawn mixed reviews on the campaign trail. And former Rep. Mac Collins, who narrowly missed ousting Rep. Jim Marshall (D) in 2006, still refuses to rule out a bid despite the fact that Gov. Sonny Perdue (R) has thrown his support behind Goddard. President Bush won this district, which was redrawn mid-decade Georgia Republicans, with 61 percent of the vote in 2004, and Marshall’s close call last year reveals it is a tough hold for any Democrat. But Marshall is a savvy pol, and Goddard’s abilities as a candidate remain an open question. (Previous ranking: 6)
I am a new resident of the 8th District and I don’t think I’ll vote for Goddard in a general election. He seems to be running a terrible campaign…but I just can’t bring myself to vote for Marshall either.
