Republicans are in great shape to win November’s gubernatorial races in North Carolina, Washington, and New Hampshire, according to a Politico election analysis.

The news service looks at the seven closest races in the country – Missouri, Indiana, West Virginia, and Montana in addition to the three above. “In six of the seven races, the Democrats are on defense,” Politico states. That includes all but West Virginia.

Here’s how Politico sees North Carolina, Washington, and New Hampshire

North Carolina

Republican Pat McCrory, former mayor of Charlotte, squares off against Democratic Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton. Republicans expect this one to play out just like Wisconsin, where GOP Gov. Scott Walker won a recall vote earlier this month. As in Wisconsin, Democrats will delude themselves that they’re competitive and then lose, according to this view.

Washington

Republican Attorney General Rob McKenna is running against former Democratic Rep. Jay Inslee. McKenna’s low budget campaign has drawn support from numerous Democrats, such as state Auditor Brian Sonntag and the Public School Employees of Washington. McKenna also is starting to outdo Inslee on fundraising big-time.

New Hampshire

The Republican front-runner Ovide Lamontagne is proving to be a fundraising juggernaut, besting not just his primary opponent Kevin Smith, but also the combined total of Democratic candidates Maggie Hassan and Jackie Cilley. The 55-year-old Lamontagne is making an issue of the 34-year-old Smith’s age. Lamontagne leads in polls for both the primary and general elections.
