Teague in Top Five

But it's not the kind of list that the Congressman from southern New Mexico would want to be on.

Washington Post political blogger Chris Cillizza puts Rep. Harry Teague's Second Congressional District as number 4 of "the five seats most likely to change hands after next year's elections."

Says Cillizza:

Not only did Rep. Harry Teague (D) inexplicably vote in favor of the Obama administration's cap-and-trade energy bill earlier this year (his southern New Mexico district is filled with oil and gas companies), but he has also drawn his toughest possible opponent -- former congressman Steve Pearce (R) -- as he prepares to seek a second term in 2010. Not good.
