Q&A Friday #112: Could The GOP Take Back The Senate In 2014?


Question: What would the GOP have to do in order to take the Senate in 2014? — President Friedman

The GOP could conceivably take the Senate back in 2014, although we’d need to have a really big year because we underperformed so much this year. Six months ago, most people thought the GOP was on track to pick up 3-4 seats. Then it shrank to two seats. In the end, we LOST two seats despite the fact that the Democrats had a lot more seats to defend.

The good news is that in 2014, the Democrats have to defend 20 seats, while we only have to protect 13. That means if we have a fantastic year, capturing the Senate would be possible. Not easy, but possible if the political wind is at our back.
