Peters Moves up in Race for Congress - Go Gary!

It's looking better all the time for Gary Peters and Mark Schauer. Both Peters and Schauer have moved the needle significantly since last year and both races are now moving in the Democrats' favor. With three weeks to go we need to get out there and work to get Gary and Mark elected. Even though polls show Obama up in Michigan, we can't let down now. Let's help Gary across the finish line.

CLAWSON -- A closely watched handicapper of congressional races on Tuesday upgraded the odds of two Michigan Democrats to unseat Republican incumbents.

The ratings from the Rothenberg Political Report came as the head of Democratic efforts to expand the party's congressional majority was in Michigan to raise money and attention for the challengers in two of national Democrats' most sought-after seats.

Rep. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., who chairs the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, promised "maximum effort" in the campaign's last three weeks to unseat Reps. Joe Knollenberg, R-Bloomfield Hills, and Tim Walberg, R-Tipton.

Former lottery commissioner and state Sen. Gary Peters, who is challenging Knollenberg, is now a slight favorite to unseat him in Rothenberg's latest ratings. And state Sen. Mark Schauer's race against Walberg is now a tossup. Both are upgrades for Democratic chances from Rothenberg's last set of ratings. Click here for the rest of the story.
