The governor of Mississippi appointed a sitting Congressman, Roger Wicker, from MS-01 to Trent Lott's seat. Democrat Travis Childers won the special election to fill that seat by 8 points, a big swing from a 20 point loss last time.

Now a DSCC poll has Wicker behind the Democratic candidate for Lott's seat, ex-governor Ronnie Musgrove by 8 points, 48-40.

In North Carolina, Liddy Dole is in a dead heat (down 48-47) with nominee Kay Hagan.

Nobody expected the South to be in play this dramatically, this early.

60 seats?

Not impossible. And then whoever replaces Harry Reid can send Joe Lieberman a strongly worded letter of concern.
