Odds Tilt Towards Republicans Taking Senate

"Republicans are in the strongest position to win back the Senate since losing it eight years ago," The Hill reports.

"Over several months, the party has expanded its range of targeted seats, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) has helped defeat insurgents it didn't want representing the GOP in the midterm elections. This sober realization came to Democrats on Wednesday, as Tuesday night's primary results showed they cannot count on Tea Party candidates upsetting more-electable incumbents."

The Upshot forecast gives Republicans a 58% chance of taking control of the Senate.
