Elections junkies like us had to suffer through an entire month without a single exciting primary or special election to dissect. (I blame Kay Bailey Hutchison for that one.) But that's just the will of the calendar. As it turns out, our patience will be rewarded, as May is going to be filled to the brim with a number of extremely exciting contests -- primaries of all kinds and special elections alike. We've identified as many noteworthy races as we can think of in the following chart, but if there's anything we're missing, please let us know in the comments!
Needless to say, May is going to be a busy, busy month.
