Battles Are Brewing for Control of the Senate
Terry Neal has an article covering the Senate races for next year.
The House appears to be solidly in the GOP's hands. But in the Senate, the Republicans hold only a one-seat majority. Democrats will be defending 19 seats to the GOP's 15 and although less than a third of those 34 seats are truly competitive, control is truly up for grabs. If there is an advantage at this point it is probably a small one for the GOP, based less on national trends than circumstances in individual states.
