Could Minimum Wage Save the Senate for Democrats?

Greg Sargent: "Democrats who are trying to get an initiative raising the minimum wage on the ballot in Arkansas tell me they have now collected more than the requisite number of signatures -- which, if certified, could boost turnout for Dem Senator Mark Pryor, possibly helping determine control of the Senate in this fall's elections."

"A minimum wage ballot initiative could give Pryor a turnout boost among core voter groups who tend to drop off in midterms, and any single race could sway the battle for the Senate."
