Senate Overview – The Lay of the Land

Democrats will be on the offense throughout the cycle in Senate races, with Louisiana their lone incumbent problem. Three GOP opens look at great risk – Virginia, New Mexico and Colorado – while a couple of incumbents appear particularly vulnerable, in New Hampshire and Minnesota. A number of other Republican seats are at risk, and even solidly Republican Alaska could turn into a major GOP problem.

Democrats are certain to gain Senate seats in November – but it’s not clear how many. Right now, 3-5 seems like the most likely guess. That could well change as the cycle develops.

For the entire 10-page issue, including state-by-state analysis as well as recent polling on each race, you must subscribe to the print edition of the Report.
