Now that the 2012 presidential campaign is pretty much down to the final two candidates — President Barack Obama for the Democrats and former Governor Mitt Romney for the Republicans (sorry, Ron Paul!), we can finally turn our attention to some of the other races that are going on across the country.

Of course, the race for the White House is the one that will have most of our attention, but while these two guys duke it out, there are a lot of moms running for various elective offices across the country who are trying to make a difference, as well.

Of course, those are some pretty powerful moms in the photo here with Valerie Jarrett, one of President Obama’s most senior advisors. And I have no doubt they’re making their own change in their communities (myself included!).

But here are ten moms who you’re going to see on the campaign trail this year in various roles — they’re ones we should all be watching!

The junior U.S. Senator from New York is the mom of two young boys and a force to be reckoned with as she runs for re-election to the office that used to be Hillary Clinton's. She's only 45, so while she says she would love to see Secretary of State Clinton run for the White House in 2016, there's certainly enough time for her own presidential bid down the road!
