Pundits' Picks: The Hottest Races
House | Senate | Governor | More From the Pundits
How Pundits Pick's Pundits' Picks lists are compiled of races that some of Washington's top non-partisan analysts say are "toss ups" or "too close to call" in November's election. These are the congressional and gubernatorial races that are likely to be the most hotly contested in the country. For a race to be included on our list, it must be picked by at least one of these analysts: Charlie Cook, Stuart Rothenberg, Congressional Quarterly's political staff, or Larry Sabato. The numbers next to each race indicate the number of analysts that included the race on their list. The list is updated when pundit predictions change.
