The GOP's Senate Problem

Politico: "The presidential race sucks up all the attention and rightly so. But the rise of anti-establishment power is killing Republican chances of winning control of the Senate. In two consecutive elections, the party had a clear shot at a majority and blew it -- blew it because the party bosses in Washington have lost control over nominating contests in swing states, and seem impotent in engineering the selection of the most electable candidates."

"It's mathematically possible for Republicans to pull out the majority - but it's just as mathematically possible they don't pick up a single seat. And a big reason has nothing to do with opportunity; it's all about the candidates."
