The Ten Races That Matter Most: An election-night checklist. (Stephen Moore, 11/02/04, National Review)

Every election brings at least one or two wonderful shockwaves, and, with them, an equal number of heartbreakers. Which ones should we look out for this year?

7. Puerto Rico: Puerto Rico does not have a floor vote in the House. But Luis Fortuno could become quite influential in the Republican caucus. If he wins, he will be the first-ever resident commissioner to caucus with the Republicans, and he could become one of the GOP's stars in the House. He is solid on all the key economic-growth issues, and, better yet, understands and can explain them in English and Spanish. He could become a very valuable asset for Republicans in future election campaigns as the GOP reaches out to Latino voters.
