The Battle for the Senate

With just over two weeks until Election Day, we can safely say that Republicans will take back the House, barring some unfortunate strain of plague that only attacks Republicans running for office.  But what about the Senate?

After Christine O’Donnell’s upset primary victory in Delaware, some pundits, including this one, wrote off the chance of a GOP-controlled Senate.  That declaration may have been a bit premature.  While it is still an unlikely outcome, the GOP does have a (small) chance of taking back the upper house of America’s bicameral legislature.

Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, released his updated “Crystal Ball” outlook for the November midterms.  After what he terms the “disaster in Delaware,” Sabato lowered the GOP’s Senate gain from +8-9 to +7-8.
