The race in AD 118 has been overshadowed by the big money races for Congress and State Senate, but it could be more interesting than originally thought. First term lawmaker Addie Russell has a liberal voting record but has been a very in touch and visible legislator. She was widely thought the favorite for reelection.
Then opponent David Forsythe mounted a late charge funded with tens of thousands of dollars of his own money and a suddenly omnipresent candidate in the Watertown area. Early on most people had thought Mr. Forsythe wasn't mounting a challenge...That has changed and without public polling its mostly a seat of the pants guess on who's ahead. I think Ms. Russell has the edge but I think an upset is possible.
