If you have Congress or CongressPlus it will be available in the next update we send to Apple.

At this stage of the contest, wisemen like Charlie Cook predict a tough 2010 for Democrats overall, citing the poor state of the economy. Still, Massachusetts is one of the bluest states in the union and it will be a tough haul for Brown to defeat Coakley, who is now consolidating her party support. If Brown is able to pull the upset, look for analysts pointing to not only what Brown did right but what the Democratic party did wrong.
