Earlier this week, the Steven Palazzo campaign announced that he will have a reception on February 4 with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor as the freshman faces the possibility of primary and general election challengers. Cantor wouldn’t be coming to the Fourth District if this race wasn’t at least on the NRCC’s radar, but I haven’t heard this race talked about as a Democratic takeover possibility at this point. You won’t find any mention of it from Rothenberg or Cook or Sabato, etc.
Part of that is because their is only one serious Democrat and that is the man Palazzo defeated last November- Gene Taylor. He recently told the Sun Herald that he is weighing his options, but isn’t committing one way or the other.
