Today's featured district is:

(CNN) - Tom Perriello is a vulnerable freshman Democrat in a conservative district who edged out a win in 2008.

'Shock and awe' coming to Washington, GOP Senate nominee says

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (CNN) - Nevada Republican Senate nominee Sharron Angle on Friday night declared "there is going to be shock and awe in Washington" after the election during a rare appearance open to the media.

Angle also mocked one of President Barack Obama's phrases, promising "we're going to have a teachable moment."

The woman who could unseat the Senate's top Democrat vowed that conservatives will demand that Congress use its lame duck session to repeal health care reform - which she called "Obamacare" - and permanently extend the Bush tax cuts.

Stage set on National Mall for Stewart, Colbert rally

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Comedy Central funnymen Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will hold a rally on the National Mall Saturday, putting a satirical spin on partisan politics three days before midterm elections.

Stewart and Colbert's "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" is scheduled to start at noon.

They announced the rally in September, less than three weeks after conservative talk-show host Glenn Beck hosted a much-publicized "Restoring Honor" rally on the National Mall, urging large crowds to "turn back to God" and return America to the values on which it was founded.
