Here we go again. Jim Matheson makes another list of most vulnerable incumbent members of Congress.
Roll Call is out with their top-10 list which includes 6 Democrats and 4 Republicans.
They acknowledge Matheson has beaten the odds before, but this year could be different.
You can’t blame us for being apprehensive about putting Matheson on this list given that he’s been a regular here for the past decade and has always managed to survive. There is only one Democrat who can win a Republican seat in Utah in a presidential year — and his last name is Matheson. The Congressman is running in the state’s new 4th district, which is demographically the “best” for a Democrat. But that’s not saying much. Combine that with the fact that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is likely to boost turnout significantly in the state, and you see how tough Matheson’s slog will be.
