As it has from the start, this race remains Solid Republican in the Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 Gubernatorial Scorecard.

At the beginning of the month, Brewer held a similar 55% to 39% lead.  Since May, Brewer's support has run from 52% to 60%, while Goddard's has remained in the 35% to 39% range.
