Stateline: Nixon Favored, But No Lock

The political state website surveys the map for Governors races and says what we all know: It's vulnerable for the G.O.P.
BUT . . .
It goes on to say that John McCain's pick of Sarah Palin could help Kenny Hulshof.
"But Nixon’s biggest worry is the Republican presidential ticket’s gains in Missouri," writes "McCain was improving in Missouri even before he named Palin to the ticket, and she now looks likely to further energize the rural, conservative and Christian base that Hulshof needs if he is to neutralize the boost that Obama is expected to get from black voters in St. Louis and Kansas City. Republicans still see it as an uphill race, but it is no longer a lock for Nixon."
