  • Deb Butler
  • Julia Boseman
  • Andrew Barnhill
  • Elizabeth Redenbaugh

Here's a quick take on what Jensen thinks the polling shows:

Senate District 9, Thom Goolsby, Wilmington: Best pickup opportunity for Democrats at this point with Goolsby down by 12 points to a generic Democrat with a majority (52 percent) disapproving of his performance.

Highly vulnerable - in purple/blue part of state, narrow win in 2010, lots are highly motivated to defeat him due to "Moron Monday" comment.
