The Enterprise Flies!

Electoral Map

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2010/senate/2010_elections_senate_map.html It's looking positive for Republicans so far but the next 8-9 months are an eternity in politics. It appears as though the R's will gain seats and maybe get the House but not the Senate. If you're a Democrat, that can...
