Connecticut Senate Race Moved to Toss Up

With Richard Blumenthal's (D) missteps on his military record, the Cook Political Report reevaluates Connecticut's U.S. Senate race.

"There are some political observers who don't believe that Blumenthal can survive this incident. Whether that's true will be determined over the next couple of days and will depend on whether the media uncovers more examples of Blumenthal misrepresenting his service, or if doubts are raised about what the Attorney General said this afternoon. Our early guess is that Blumenthal does survive, but that he is no longer the heavy favorite he was just 24 hours ago, and Republicans will now play on a more level playing field. As such, the race is moving to the Toss Up column."
