The Top Five Republican Rising Stars

November 11, 2010
Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.): There will be plenty of pressure on Grimm to perform well in Washington. By unseating Rep. Michael McMahon (D), Grimm is the GOP's lone representative in New York City (Staten Island). As a result, he'll get plenty of exposure in the New York media market. Grimm has a compelling personal story -- he was an FBI agent for nine years -- and was endorsed by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.): Duffy should be accustomed to the intense media scrutiny of Capitol Hill having survived a season of MTV's "Real World" and the not-quite-as-successful "Real World/Road Rules Challenge". Duffy had the guts to get into his race this year before veteran Rep. David Obey (D) announced his retirement, and cruised to victory once he did.
