ME-Gov: Left-leaning Independent Steve Woods, who got 1.5% in the Senate race this year, will run for Governor in 2014. Woods alone isn't likely to make much of an impact, but Gov. Paul LePage (R) probably needs this race to turn into a clown car to win a second term. Fortunately, Maine sees as many 3- and 4-way races as all other states combined.
MN-Gov/Sen: As the Minnesota GOP looks to pick up the pieces after a terrible cycle, the Great Mentioner has a list of names for 2014. Tim Pawlenty is out, but Reps. John Kline and Erik Paulsen (the latter of whom is probably our strongest candidate) both took the not-ruling-it-out path. Others: Norm Coleman, Michele Bachmann, Hennpin Sheriff Rich Stanek, former St. Rep. and UMN regent Laura Brod, and RNC Committeeman Jeff Johnson.
NH-Gov: Kevin Smith, the activist who lost to Ovide Lamontagne in this year's primary, is likely running again in 2 years. The Great Mentioner also name-drops every single Republican in NH politics as a potential 2014 candidate for Governor, Senate, or Congress, with the exception of Ovide and Charlie Bass, who are hanging it up.
AZ-02: This race was called for Rep. Ron Barber (D) over the weekend. Barber trailed on Election Day, but won absentees and provisionals by enough to erase Martha McSally's lead.
FL-18: The first round of recanvassing has expanded Allen West's deficit to about 2100 votes. West's campaign has been very gung-ho about recounts and legal challenges, but it would be unprecedented to see this kind of margin erased.
NC-07: And in the only other remaining uncalled race, Mike McIntyre leads by 655 after all counties finished counting last week. He's declared victory; the Rouzer campaign will decide on whether to ask for a recount this week.
NY-27: He hasn't even been seated yet, and Chris Collins already has his quintessential rookie mistake out of the way.
TN-04: Rep. Scott DesJarlais, like Anthony Weiner before him, has "no plans to resign," which leaves House leadership with a decision on how hard to push him in that direction. Support for DesJarlais in his home state sounds tepid.
NRSC: Jerry Moran says his committee will be more involved in recruiting and shepherding candidates through the primary than it was under John Cornyn this year. The heavy-handed approach didn't work in 2010, but it seems preferable to a repeat of 2012, where Claire McCaskill was able to pick her opponent in MO.
RNC: Reince Priebus will seek another term as chairman. The committee was certainly better organized than under Michael Steele, but since the results weren't there, Priebus could certainly face a challenge.
NC-LG: In arguably the most significant uncalled statewide race, Dan Forest (R) leads by 6,396 votes out of 4.5 million cast. His opponent, Linda Coleman, can ask for a recount but has yet to do so.
NYC-Council: For those redistricting junkies desperate for a fix, the New York City Council released its draft map. Alas, it's not the gerrymander that we've come to expect from New York politics.
WA-St. Sen: Democrats are projected to have a 26-23 majority in this chamber, but two moderate Dems could caucus with Republicans, creating a GOP-dominated coalition in which one of the Dems would be Majority Leader. This hinges on Republicans retaining their lead in SD-17, which remains uncalled.
