Race Analysis

10/28/10 -- This is another race that didn't really engage until pretty late in the cycle.  Wilson ran as a fairly conservative Democrat in 2006 when he replaced Ted Strickland, who ran successfully for Governor.  But he's proved to be a pretty reliable vote for the Democratic leadership, and it may be coming back to bite him.  In the absence of independent polling it is difficult to really know where this race stands.  Johnson isn't particularly well-funded, but outside money is pouring in.
