Ok, I did some scribbling on paper to try and figure out my predictions for the 2006 Gubernatorial Races. Here's how things currently stand:

36 Seats are in play this election year.

OUT OF THE 36 SEATS
REPUBLICANS HOLD: 22
DEMOCRATS HOLD::: 14

After all my scribbling and thinking about the races up for grabs this year, I came to the end result of my predictions of 28 seats, with

REPUBLICAN KEEP/GAIN: 16
DEMOCRAT KEEP/GAIN: 13

SEVEN SEATS TOO CLOSE TO CALL IN MY OPINION:
Minnesota (Pawlenty vs. Hatch)
Pennsylvania (Rendell vs. Swann)
Maine (Baldacci vs. Emery)
Ohio (Blackwell vs. Strickland)
Michigan (Granholm vs. DeVos)
Tennessee (Bredesen vs. Bryson)
Alaska (WTF will Murkowski do?)

Sadly, every one of those seats could be won by the democrats, giving them a majority of the Governor's seats. If I had to guess now, Republicans could easily pick up three of those six (Ohio, Pennsylvania and Minnesota). Tennessee is also a possible surprise pickup for the GOP (Ex. Bunning vs. Mongiardo '04)...but at this point, I see Bredesen getting re-election...although it's still too close to call.
In my opinion, the 2006 Gubernatorial Races are too close to call on who will maintain power of the majority of governor's seats come 2007.

Especially this early, I don't see how you cannot consider Oregon, California, Colorado, Iowa, or Michigan to be not too close to call.  I would be interested to hear your logic.

Okay.

Despite the fact that his post may reek of lunacy, he does the best he can with the information that he has and the forsight he lacks.

Better? Smiley

Naso,

I wouldn't be too confident with Iowa going Republican. Popular Governor Vilsack is for Culver and the Secretary of State has a name known statewide, unlike Nussle.

Nussle also has the backing of an unpopular President. When President Bush came to Des Moines last week the protesters could be seen far and wide. At least 5,000 came out to disrupt his $500 a plate dinner by having a "chicken soup for the needy" publicity stunt.

Iowa will be the race to watch this year in my opinion.

I'm going to have to disagree. I don't think MN will be that competitive, nor will TN. I think the states that are tossups include IA, MI, ME, WI, CO, and CA. In addition to that, I think PA, OH, AK, OR, and possibly AR will be competitive. But that's just me.

Edit: George Ryan was found guilty, so IL won't be a tossup after all.

Why does no one thing Minnesota will be that competitive?  Are BRTD and I mute or something? Tongue

Uh... I thought Vilsak was for Blouin who's trying to challenge Culver in the primary but hasn't really been having much success...
