Top Races to watch around the nation in 2013

Here Are The Races That Will Define Politics In 2013

For anyone still suffering from election fatigue, here's some good news: In terms of momentous races, 2013 is no 2012.

But the paucity of marquee contests doesn't mean there won't be any drama at the ballot box this year — in fact, quite the opposite.

The nation's biggest cities are picking new chief executives, and a few states are already gearing up for potentially epic face-offs in November.

Here's a look at the six races to keep an eye on in 2013:

1. New Jersey governor: Chris Christie's big dance

2. Massachusetts Senate: The race to replace John Kerry

3. New York City mayor: Looking toward a post-Bloomberg future

4. Virginia governor: A Clintonite-Tea Party showdown - Ken Cu?

5. Los Angeles mayor: Life after Villaraigosa

6. Illinois' congressional race: Who will replace Jesse Jackson Jr.?
