The Year In Forgettable Candidates

Much like Ellsworth, New Hampshire Rep. Paul Hodes was touted as a top tier Democratic candidate for the New Hampshire Senate race. And, also like Ellsworth, Hodes never seem to get his campaign off the ground. Hodes trailed Republican Kelly Ayotte from the get-go, and it only got worse as Election Day approached. Hodes also didn't raise much money and Ayotte cruised to the Senate after emerging from the Republican primary.

Republicans were elated when former Maryland Gov. Bob Ehrlich (R) announced he would seek a rematch with Gov. Martin O'Malley (D). And Ehrlich appeared to be closing in on O'Malley's early lead, on only to see the Democrat blow it open in last couple months before Election Day. If nothing else, Ehrlich proved just how difficult it is for a Republican to win statewide in Maryland -- which may explain why he said after the election that he was done with politics.
