8th CD among 'bellwether' races

The Washington Post, in ongoing coverage of the mid-term Congressional election, has identified eight issues it believes will shape the outcome, and 33 bellwether races to watch.

Wisconsin's 8th District, being vacated by Rep. Mark Green, is one of the 33, and one of four where pocketbook issues might be the deciding factor. Get the Post's view of the race here.

The NYT thinks that the 8th district is solid Republican based on 2000 and 2004 results.

Is there a poll that says otherwise?

Yeah, one thing they aren't counting on is all the Republicans that can't stand Gard. There are a lot of them. I think Jamie Wall could beat the pants off Gard in the general.
