What Republicans Need to Get Revenge

After Democrats invoked the "nuclear option" today, GOP senators pledged to push conservative judges through the Senate as soon as they get the chance.

But as First Read notes, "they will need to do two things come 2016: 1) win the White House and 2) control the U.S. Senate."

"As it turns out, Republicans are poised to make Senate gains in the 2014 midterms -- and maybe even win control of the chamber -- due to the favorable battleground... But 2016 is a different story. In that '16 cycle -- a presidential year -- Republicans will have to defend more Senate seats (24) than Democrats will (10)."
