New Race Ratings: Which Senate Seats Will Flip?

The Hotline's election mavens have released their latest Senate race rankings--a list of the 20 Senate seats most likely to flip from one party's control to the other's.


Of the top 20, 7 could go from Republican to Democrat, which is a surprisingly high number given all the doom and gloom surrounding Democrats' electoral outlook. Notably, three of them involve a Tea Party candidate.

The Democrats' seven chances for taking currently Republican seats, according to Hotline, are in Kentucky, New Hampshire, Florida, Missouri, Alaska, Ohio, and North Carolina.
