Can GOP Take Advantage of Senate Opportunity?

Charlie Cook: ,Between the 'sorting out' that took place in the past four elections and a redistricting process that maximized the number of safe seats for both parties--but especially for Republicans--the bulk of the 2014 congressional election action won't be in the House, but in the Senate. The disproportionate exposure for Senate Democrats is very clear, giving Republicans the opportunity to gain a large number of seats, and potentially the six they need for control of the chamber. However, the same was true last year, when instead of gaining two to four seats, the GOP ended up with a net loss of two. A repeat of that looks extremely unlikely, but whether Republicans are in a position to capitalize on their opportunities remains to be seen."
