Several dozen congressional races could be affected by yesterday's bailout vote -- and one race for governor. Congressman Kenny Hulshof, the Republican nominee for governor in Missouri, joined most of his party in voting against the bailout. From KMBC:

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Missouri GOP gubernatorial candidate and U.S. Rep. Kenny Hulshof explained his vote against the Wall Street bailout on Tuesday.

...

Hulshof said the $700 billion figure was "excessive." He said Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson just wanted a big number. Hulshof said what Congress needs is a big number for the bailout, but not that big.

Like Hulshof, most members of the House in competitive races opposed the bailout.
