Folks interested in policy/financial regulation should be interested in the possible Senate race between Massachusetts incumbent Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren, who has decided to run for the Democratic nomination (in 2012) after being thwarted in her desire to run the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
