Senate Control May Not Be Decided Until December

"For all the money spent on the November elections, control of the Senate might not be decided until a Saturday three weeks before Christmas," Roll Call reports.

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) "hopes to win re-election outright on Nov. 4 in a jungle primary against a handful of challengers. But winning a majority of the vote in a multi-candidate field would be a significant feat, and the campaigns of both Landrieu and her leading Republican opponent, Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), are undoubtedly preparing for an extended, one-on-one race."

"If a Dec. 6 runoff coincides with a 50-49 Republican advantage in the Senate, consultants in and out of the state warn of an unprecedented onslaught of spending from party committees and outside groups in a race that could become more about the national parties than the two candidates on the ballot."
