Lou Jacobson of Stateline has an invaluable update on the state attorney general campaigns around the country:
Two open seats currently held by Democrats in Missouri and Montana are virtual toss-ups. A Democratic-held seat in West Virginia is under aggressive fire from business groups, although the incumbent remains favored. Most Democratic incumbents are holding their own, but the party's takeover opportunities are more limited, with the best chance for a flip likely coming in Indiana.
The presidential race -- while a distraction for voters -- could play a significant role in these races, experts say, especially in the five states that are also hotly contested battleground states: Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Two others -- Montana and Washington -- are in the next tier of competitive presidential states. A sweep or near-sweep of these states by either Democrat Barack Obama or Republican John McCain could trickle down to the attorney general races.
