The most important number in the midterms

8. Mississippi’s 1st (D): State Sen. Alan Nunnelee (R) won his party nomination outright earlier this month, giving national Republicans their preferred candidate to face freshman Rep. Travis Childers in this northern Mississippi district. Still, with Childers recently picking up the endorsement of the NRA, the race won’t be settled without a fight. (Previous ranking: 13)
