Election 2010: Congress

The Rothenberg Political Report has ranked the seat held by U.S. Rep. Alan Mollohan, D-1st, as "Lean Democratic," part of a major reshuffling of its analysis of the 2010 election landscape.

"All of the moves benefit the GOP, either because Republican districts now look safer or Democratic districts appear more vulnerable," its analysis explains.

The ranking change follows a similar move by the Cook Political Report in assessing that seat.

The Associated Press reported last week that Mollohan entered 2010 with a campaign balance below $65,000.

As of mid-Monday, six Republicans had filed with the secretary of state for the chance to challenge Mollohan, while a seventh has reported to the Federal Election Commission.
