Race Summary

Rep. Tom Reynolds's seat should be in more jeopardy but for a contested Democratic primary between businessman Jack Davis (D), attorney Alice Kryzan (D) and Iraq war vet Jon Powers (D). National Democrats favor Powers, but Kryzan edged him 41%-36% in the Sept. 9 primary, with Davis -- the Dem nominee the past two elections -- getting 23%. Businessman Chris Lee (R) gives Republicans a good shot at keeping the seat.
