The Washington Post’s politics blog has selected the District 1 race among its top 50 races most likely to switch parties:

48. South Carolina’s 1st district (R): This race isn’t on most peoples’ radar screens but according to informed GOP sources it should be. Rep. Henry Brown (R) has held the Charleston-area seat since 2000 but seemed to be caught off-guard by businesswoman Linda Ketner (D) who has used a $700,000 personal donation to pummel Brown. The incumbent is (finally) fighting back. But it may be too late.

Interesting to note that number 49 and 50 are in Virginia and Ohio, both swing states in this election.
