CBS News Unveils 2010 Hot Races Map

Technology is sweet.  I think back to the 2008 election and wonder what we would have done without those giant, ridiculous touch-screen maps that the anchors on FoxNews and CNN played around with each evening.

And here’s another great innovation, this time from CBS News.

The CBS News Hot Races Map categorizes each House and Senate race by how competitive it is, and the onlooker can scroll the cursor over the district to see who the incumbent is or if it’s an open seat.

Hopefully, CBS will take this map a step further and add a clickable function that details the state of the race — including fundraising numbers and polling links for both incumbents and challengers.

Take a look at the map for yourself.
