    I do think its a lean D because of the presidential year and Buerkle's intense partisanship. But I certainly don't think its a foregone conclusion. Even with the wave, she shouldn't have won last time but she did. Maybe Maffei can correct his mistakes, but I don't know that he made any glaring mistakes. Upstate is natural GOP territory and even if the numbers for federal office are swinging D lately, there is a lot of residual conservative sentiment that we can't write off.
