I didn't think I was going out on a limb in expecting Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to win easily -- they do call him "mayor for life." So far, though, he only leads narrowly.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
