Special election to fill vacant Senate seat of Senator Ted Kennedy - the date will be either January 19 or 26 and the Governor is required to choose one of these dates within a week.

I would look to see the approval be given by the state legislature. You can read more here.


Consumer spending up in July - the second month in a row. The popular "Cash for Clunkers" program is credited with having an impact as consumers took advantage of the rebate. has more here.


Obama losing support among Independents - an interesting read detailing the loss of support among independents and shows the large number of Independents across the country today. has more here.
