West Virginia Senate Race

How Far Will The GOP Wave Go?

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

R's retain big leads to pick up 3 open seats in Romney-carried states: WV, Mont., SD. Repub. nominees moved ahead of 3 Dem. incumbents in Romney states (AK, AR, LA) & in 2 target states carried by Obama (CO, IA). Only in NC has the Repub. not yet overtaken the Dem.

R’s have an edge in SD, WV, and Mont. Sen. races. With those wins, R’s are halfway to the needed 6-seat gain.
