The top 10 races of 2014: No. 10 (VIDEO)

Over the next two weeks, before Washington hits the road for a little holiday cheer, we'll be counting down the top 10 races that you need to know about heading into the New Year.

These races will include Senate, House and governor's contests that are important, telling, or just downright entertaining. The common thread? You'll definitely want to keep an eye on these going forward.

So, without further ado, we begin with No. 10...
