Republicans Have Expanded Senate Map

Politico: "Six months ago, the GOP path to the majority was narrower: Republicans essentially had to sweep seven races in states Barack Obama lost in 2012 but where Democrats currently hold seats. Unlikely, in other words."

"Now Republicans have more options. They've landed top recruits to take on first-term senators in New Hampshire and Colorado, nominated credible female candidates in open-seat contests in Michigan and Iowa, protected all of their incumbents from tea party challenges and thwarted more conservative candidates that could have hurt the GOP's chances in states like North Carolina and Georgia."

Meanwhile, The Upshot gives Republicans a 54% chance of taking control of the Senate.
