Senate Control May Be Won in the South

Wall Street Journal: "The ability of Democrats to keep control of the Senate in 2014 will depend largely on elections in southern states... Three of the four most vulnerable Senate Democrats in the 2014 election are from the South."

"Republicans believe Arkansas is their best shot at knocking off an incumbent, making Mr. Pryor a prime target in the battle for control of the chamber. The GOP needs to add six seats to win a majority in the Senate, an achievable but far-from-certain goal. It is hard to see how they could hit that mark if they can't win here."

First Read: "To win back the Senate in 2014, Republicans need to net six seats. And here's their path: win six of seven states, all of which Mitt Romney carried in 2012 -- Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Montana, North Carolina, South Dakota, and West Virginia."
