So who’s going to win today?  Leave  your guesses in comments.  The warm glow of being right is your reward if, in fact, you turn out to be right.

I haven’t blogged much about any of this because none of it has seemed very interesting up until the last minute soap opera in the NY-23 race.  Even by the standards of off-year elections this is a pretty small one, and though the British press routinely projects the future course of the empire from the results of a single by-election in West Bromwich, we have a hard time pulling off quite the same level of breathless credulity here.  There’s just too much obviously local spin to all these races.  Still, I admit that I’ll be impressed if Jon Corzine manages to pull out a come-from-behind victory by insinuating that his opponent is fat.

FOLLOW THE MONEY

Corporations and billionaires don’t fund journalism like ours that exists to shake things up. Instead, support from readers allows Mother Jones to call it like it is without fear, favor, or false equivalence.

And right now, a longtime friend of Mother Jones has pledged an incredibly generous gift to inspire—and double—giving from online readers. That's huge! Because you can see that our fall fundraising drive is well behind the $325,000 we need to raise. So if you agree that in-depth, fiercely independent journalism matters right now, please support our work and help us raise the money it takes to keep Mother Jones charging hard. Your gift, and all online donations up to $94,000 total, will be matched and go twice as far—but only until the November 9 deadline.
