Here is something we have not been hearing much chatter about as November 2012 slowly begins to materialize on the American horizon. What about the Senate and House races? What about the Gubernatorial races? How many seats are at play in Congress and how many Governorships are at stake? In the unfortunate event that Barack Obama does finagle a second term, will his agenda and his direction serve any real purpose if Republicans continue their majority in the House and claim a majority in the Senate?

In the Senate, 33 of the 100 seats are at play. Democrats are projected to have 21 seats up for election, 2 Independents hold seats up for election, and Republicans are expected to have 10 seats up for election. Currently, there are 51 Democrats, 2 Independents, and 47 Republicans in the Senate.

In the House, this will be the first congressional election using the new districts reapportioned by the population numbers collected from the 2010 Census. Elections will be held for all 435 seats in the House.

Eleven of the fifty governorships and territorial governorships of American Samoa and Puerto Rico will be in the 2012 race. Among those, only two serving governors will be term-limited out of office.

There will be a lot to think about on that not so distant Tuesday night of November 2012. And, based on the numbers above, any of these sets of races could slightly bend or aggressively veer in either direction.

1,182.7 miles to go.
