‘Lean’ Times for New England Democratic Candidates

From Massachusetts governor to New Hampshire Senate, the political tides are shifting in the early days of the general election campaign.

From the Rothenberg Political Report (tip o’ the pixel to Politico’s Morning Score):

See that little arrow lower right? That’s to indicate the previous rating in the Granite State Senate bake-off was “Democratic favored.” Rotheberg downgraded the Massachusetts gubernatorial race the same way.

Elsewhere, Rothenberg also moved the race in Maine’s 2nd Congressional District to “lean Democrat” from “Democrat favored.”

And more bad news: The Connecticut governor’s race went to “pure tossup” from “tossup/tilt Democrat” in Rothenberg’s ratings.

Better news over at the Cook Political Report: It moved MA-06 to “lean Democratic” from “tossup.” But a mixed bag in gubernatorial races: “The Cook Political report moved Rhode Island governor to ‘likely Democratic’ from ‘lean Democratic’ [but] Massachusetts governor to ‘lean Democratic’ from ‘likely Democratic.'”

Likely causing lots of strategy sessions in a campaign near you.
