Democrats Tout Four States as Takeovers in Governor Races

The Democratic Governors Association in a fundraising e-mail Tuesday highlighted Florida, Alaska, Georgia and Minnesota as 2010 takeover opportunities.

“We know we can take back the governor’s mansion in every one of these states. But these are historically Republican seats, and in this crucial election, we won’t win them without a fight,” DGA National Political Director Ray Glendening wrote in the fundraising pitch.

Three of the races are open seat contests and in the fourth, Alaska Republican Gov. Sarah Palin has yet to confirm her intention to seek re-election.
