A Look at the 2014 Primary Schedule

Stu Rothenberg: "The first Senate primary contest will be March 4 in Texas. Rep. Steve Stockman's last-minute challenge to GOP Sen. John Cornyn got plenty of media attention. But unless Stockman can find a pot of gold (worth at least $10 million or so) at the end of a rainbow, Cornyn will cruise to victory. ... The next incumbent senator facing a primary is Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in Kentucky on May 20. Gauging Matt Bevin's credibility and McConnell's vulnerability in a primary is not easy. But up to this point, most observers believe McConnell will survive. ... So right out of the gate, it's very possible that two of the highest ranking Republicans in the Senate -- McConnell and Cornyn -- win their primaries and hand the anti-establishment crowd two high-profile losses."
