2008 State Senate Filings

The map below shows the districts in which one or both parties have candidates filed for the 2008 state senate 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
