GOP can take the Senate in 2014

Former Montan Governor Brian Schweitzer’s announcement that he won’t run for the Senate in 2014 gives the GOP a great chance to pick up the seat.  This also increases their chances of retaking the Senate.  If they get six seats the GOP will be back in control.

Here are there best chances (although I think New Hampshire is a bit of a long shot) for pick ups in 2014:

  • Arkansas
  • West Virginia
  • Louisiana
  • Montana
  • North Carolina
  • New Hampshire

Of course all of this will be dependent on the party putting up good candidates.  For example avoiding people like:

It also depends on not getting rid of electable moderates like Susan Collins in Maine or Lamar! Alexander in Tennessee.  Both of these are easier said than done.
