Race Analysis

10/16/10 -- This race flew under the radar screen for most of the cycle, but a late poll showing Walz up five but under 50 percent has pundits scrambling to add it to their list.  This is a marginal district, so Walz could lose.  Is the Mayo Clinic upset about health care reform?  We'll find out in a week or so.
