Primary: August 24, 2010
Location: Tucson
Days until the election: 33

Rising Democratic star Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is defending her seat from in this Tucscon-based congressional district. Though voters in Arizona's eighth supported McCain in 2008, and George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, Giffords' prowess as a candidate and deep roots in her district will likely be big factors if she is able to hold on to her seat. Both parties and political handicappers aren't letting this race out of their sights because the GOP candidate, Iraq vet Jesse Kelly, has a shot to wrest the seat from Giffords. It won't be easy, however.

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."

Primary: August 28, 2010
Location: Houma and Thibodaux, the eye of the Katrina storm.
Days until the election: 33

This seat, which has opened up because three-term Democratic Rep. Charlie Melancon is challenging GOP Sen. David Vitter, looks like it is headed into the win column for the GOP. The twist here is that we won't know who the Republican candidate is until October 1, when the GOP holds a run-off between Iraq vet and businessman Jeff Landry and former state House speaker Hunt Downer.

It is a tough year for the Democrats to (to say the least) but this is one place where they hope to have a shot. Their candidate is local mayor John Callahan.

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:

Massachusetts 10th: Rep. Bill Delahunt is retiring.
Primary: September 14, 2010
Location: South shore and Cape Cod.
Days until the election: 37

There's very little about the race for Massachusetts 10th congressional seat that someone paying just the slightest bit of attention to the upcoming midterm elections wouldn't be able to predict: it's an open seat, with longtime Democratic Rep. Bill Delahunt retiring; there's a Republican candidate vying for a pick up with a broad, anti-incumbent, anti-Democrat, anti-illegal immigration, anti-Pelosi message (and though this district is probably GOP's best shot in the state for a house pick-up, this is still Massachusetts); and there's a Democrat who is walking the line between appealing to his base and making sure everyone understands that he's "not beholden to anyone" (read: he knows his party isn't winning any popularity contests this cycle.).
