- We're a week out from Election Day, which means the local media markets in cities and states with consequential races will be saturated with 24/7 coverage from here on out. For those of us who don't live in a place with a sexy campaign to obsess over, here's the CliffNotes version of our off-season elections.
- In the Virginia gubernatorial race, Democrat Terry McAuliffe has a double-digit leadover Republican Ken Cuccinelli.
- Molly Ball writes, "if you're just now Rip Van Winkling in from the 1990s, that last sentence was not a joke."
- Bill deBlasio is leading the New York City mayoral race by 45 percentage points, ready to become Bloomberg's successor in a historic landslide.
- Chris Smith's New York Magazine profile of the public advocate and longtime politico is a must-read primer on what kind of mayor deBlasio just might be.
- And here's a profile of his political consulting firm, which knew exectly the kind of New York voters wanted to imagine during the primary.
- Mike Duggan is set to win the Detroit mayoral race, which means the bankrupt city is set to have its first white mayor since 1974.
- Chris Christie will win re-election easily, given that over 40 percent of New Jersey residents seem to have no idea who his opponent is.
- And yes. His election night party will be Bruce Springsteen themed.
