 Sabato's Crystal Ball - 2004 House   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Two years ago, Grand Canyon State Democrats were left reeling when wealthy Republican Rick Renzi, a conservative firebrand with a questionable political resume, emerged from a crowded GOP primary field and proceeded to narrowly defeat George Cordova, a weak Democratic nominee whose failed business ventures became the subject of a relentless national GOP ad barrage.
While Republicans point to Renzi's incumbency and some inroads he's made among Native American voters, national Democrats have pegged the race a prime takeover opportunity and see in Babbitt a credible challenger who will finally have the resources to paint Renzi as too conservative for this swing seat.
As the Crystal Ball predicted, Republican Rick Renzi won reelection with 59 percent of the vote.
