Alabama Election-2010

Republican Mike Rogers (AL-3) has been added to the NRCC’s Patriot Program a.k.a the list of the party’s most vulnerable members.  John McCain carried the Alabama 3rd with 56% of the vote but Rogers only gathered 53% of the vote against newcomer (opponent) Josh Segall.

Also, freshmen Democrats Bobby Bright (AL-2) and Parker Griffith (AL-5) are on the DCCC Frontline program. Bright won with a meager 50.23% of the vote.

Senator Richard Shelby has a campaign war chest of $14.8 million, second only to Chuck Schumer.  That’s enough to ward off any challengers.  According to CQ:

Sens. Charles E. Schumer, D-N.Y., and Richard C. Shelby, R-Ala., will easily win new terms in 2010 in part because of their huge campaign treasuries.
