CNN 100: Former Rep. Steve Chabot battling to take back his old seat

Editor's Note: In the final 100 days before Election Day, CNN has been profiling one race at random each day from among the nation's top 100 House races, which we've dubbed "The CNN 100." Read the full list here . Today's featured district is:

OH 01: Rep. Steve Driehaus (D) defends his seat from former Rep. Steve Chabot (R)
Primary: May 4, 2010
Location: Western Cincinnati
Days until the election: 20

The Cincinnati suburbs are not a great place to run as a Democrat in an anti-Democratic year. Democratic Rep. Steve Driehaus, who only wrestled this seat from the hands of former Republican Rep. Steve Chabot in 2008, may lose his seat to the man who held it only two years ago.

Primary: August 24, 2010
Location: The middle of the state/a piece of Orlando
Days until the election: 21

This race is nothing if not interesting. First off, you have outspoken and controversial incumbent, Rep. Alan Grayson who has served one term in the House of Representatives, and earned far more than his share of bombastic headlines, famously referring to a woman lobbyist as a "K-Street Whore," and summarizing the Republican position on health care as "If you get sick, die quickly," much to the dismay of his party.

CNN 100: GOP may take former Dem seat

Editor's Note: In the final 100 days before Election Day, CNN has been profiling one race at random each day from among the nation's top 100 House races, which we've dubbed "The CNN 100." Read the full list <a href="">here. Today's featured district is:

NY 29: Rep. Eric Massa resigned amid alleged scandal, vacating his seat.
Primary: September 14, 2010
Location: Southern tier of New York
Days until the election: 27

Unless the dynamic shifts radically in this district and this race in the 27 days left before the election, New York's 29th congressional district is a sure bet for a Republican take-over come November 2. The seat is open and holding a special election on November 2, as former Democratic Rep. Eric Massa resigned in March 2010 citing a returning case of cancer and an ongoing Congressional Ethics Committee investigation into allegations of sexual harassment. On top of that, Massa's refusal to support the Obama administration's health care bill was a thorn in the side of Democrats, and didn't win him any support when the alleged ethics committee violation arose.
