New Hampshire: A new Granite State Poll (in PDF format) offers reassuring numbers. The poll clocked Republican John Sununu's approve-disapprove at a languishing 46-35, while popular Democratic former Governor Jeanne Shaheen's approve-disapprove came in at a steady 57-23. The poll found Shaheen beating Sununu 54-37, which is almost identical to the 54-38 findings in both previous Granite State Polls on this race, in July '07 and September '07. Lookin' good. Also, Democrat Jay Buckey is withdrawing from the race, leaving Shaheen unopposed in the primary and focused entirely on Sununu.
Ohio: Again, looking ahead to 2010, if I had to put money on it, I'd bet that Republican George Voinovich will retire at the end of his current term. (He'll be 74-years-old on Election Day 2010.) If he does retire, Republican former Congressman and current Bush budget director Rob Portman may be interested in a 2010 Senate bid.
