Politico Lists 25 Politicians to Watch in 2010

From Politico:
Nearly everything that occurs in Washington this year will take place against an important and unavoidable backdrop—the combined total of more than 500 House, Senate and gubernatorial races on the 2010 ballot.
Within that expansive political universe, there is a small galaxy of candidates and officeholders whose actions—or reactions—are especially consequential and worth watching because of the role they will play in shaping the legislative or political environment.
Here is POLITICO’s list of 25 of politicians to watch in 2010.
Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.)
Rep. Artur Davis (D-Ala.)
Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.)
Maine State Senate President Libby Mitchell (D)

Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-Va.)
