CORRECTION: Hill/Young race still a 'toss-up'

CORRECTION: Hill/Young race still a 'toss-up'

A correction to my report on Monday of the Ninth District Congressional race between Baron Hill and Todd Young.

 I mistakenly reported that the race has been rated as "leans Republican" by the University of Virginia's Larry Sabato.

In fact - the UVA "Crystal Ball" report still regards the election as a "toss-up."

Speaking of the 'Crystal Ball" report, it has moved Kentucky's Third Congressional District race between Democrat John Yarmuth and Republican Todd Lally from "Safe Democratic" to "Likely Democratic:"

KY-3 (John Yarmuth-D): This race has been something of a sleeper, as Democrats felt incumbent John Yarmuth could hold his own in a district that usually goes slightly Democratic in presidential years. In a midterm year, however, the two-term congressman could be endangered as a new SurveyUSA poll indicated, showing Yarmuth with just a two-point advantage, 47%-45%. Yarmuth’s GOP opponent is Todd Lally, a veteran of the war in Iraq, who Republicans think can capitalize on the frustration with DC and his own outsider profile, coupled with Tea Party support. Although this race may not be as close as the recent poll suggested, we are moving this race from Safe Democratic to LIKELY DEMOCRATIC.
