CNN 100: More Dems added to list of key House races

Washington (CNN) - The CNN 100, a list of the nation’s 100 most vulnerable House races, has been updated to reflect the latest developments in the battle to control the chamber this November.

Four freshman and sophomore Republicans, Reps. Brian Bilbray of California, Pete Roskam of Illinois, Erik Paulsen of Minnesota, and Leonard Lance of New Jersey, have been dropped from the list. Although they all represent districts President Obama carried in 2008, their opponents have yet to make significant in-roads.

They are replaced on the list by four Democrats: Reps. Betty Sutton of Ohio, Jim Himes of Connecticut, John Yarmuth of Kentucky, and Nick Rahall of West Virginia.

The updated list can be viewed here. The latest changes are detailed after the jump.

    Looks like most of the staff at CNN are going to need a big dose of therapy after the election because so many of their democratic friends are going to be standing in the unemployment line just like so average Americans.

    The sad thing is there are only more politicans waiting to take these seats and take their turn at the money trough and join the corruption in Washington.
    Our media points to Iraq and Afganastan as being corrupt, they should check the US government and be truthful in reporting
