Report moves District 2 toward GOP

After the loss of a U.S. Senate seat in Massachusetts and polls that show Democrats are in trouble, The Rothenberg Political Report has moved 28 U.S. House seats including Alabama's District 2 in favor of Republicans as the 2010 election nears.
All of the movement in the most recent report favors Republicans and Rothenberg expects the GOP to pick up 24 to 28 seats in the House.
While momentum could change before the election to benefit Democrats, Rothenberg also commented "we can no longer dismiss the possibility of a Republican wave so large that Democrats could lose their House majority." The report does expect Democrats to maintain a majority of seats.
Rothenberg moved the 2nd District, which is currently represented by freshman Democrat Bobby Bright of Montgomery, to "toss up/tilt Republican."
Republicans Martha Roby, a Montgomery city councilwoman, and Rick Barber, a Montgomery businessman and Marine Corps veteran, have announced they are running for the seat.
Barber was featured this week on ABC's "Good Morning America."
