Nate Silver is a liberal, too, or at least I've seen him on either TDS or Maher's show-he predicted Obama's re-election in 2012.
Terri Lynn Land (R) has a pretty good lead in the polls over Gary Peters (D) to replace Carl Levin in the Senate. Neither candidate have run ads of their own, but a special interest group is running ads against Peters, with an alleged cancer victim who had her insurance cut off.
I say alleged not because I don't think that a person with cancer could lose her coverage, more because I mistrust all political ads, especially those from special interest groups.

That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers
