While you make your giving decisions this Christmas Season, I hope you'll keep the Civitas Institute in mind.

We're here every single day, fighting for small, accountable government, and working to diminish the influence of the liberal Left in our state.

We don’t take government funds, and we won’t ever take stolen taxpayer money. We go out and ask for it, and now I'm asking you.

If you like our work and you think our mission is valuable, will you help keep us in the fight?

2008 State House Filings

The map below shows the districts in which one or both parties have candidates filed for the 2008 state house elections. A district in which candidates from only one party have filed – even if more than one candidate has filed – is considered a "Decided" district in terms of which party will hold the seat after the November elections.

"Decided Democratic" = no Republicans have filed

"Contested Democratic" = seat is currently held by a Democrat; both Democratic and Republican candidates have filed

"Decided Republican" = no Democrats have filed

"Contested Republican" = seat is currently held by a Republican; both Democratic and Republican candidates have filed

"Open Seat" = incumbent is not running for reelection
