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.

See the full list, plus explanations, here.
