The biggest battles of the 2014 primary season are all but over, and Republicans still appear to be in good shape.
National Journal Thursday took a fresh look at Senate races, and found Democrats vulnerable on several fronts--nine of the 10 seats most likely to flip to the other party are now held by Democrats.
They include South Dakota, where Sen. Tim Johnson is retiring; West Virginia, where Sen. Jay Rockefeller is retiring; Montana, where newly appointed Sen. John Walsh is regarded as vulnerable, and Louisiana, where Sen. Mary Landrieu faces a tough challenger from Rep. Bill Cassidy.
Next on the list: North Carolina, a seat now held by Sen. Kay Hagan; Arkansas, held by Sen. Mark Pryor; Alaska, Sen. Mark Begich; Iowa, now held by retiring Sen. Tom Harkin, and Colorado, now held by Sen. Mark Udall.
Never miss a local story.
At number 10 comes the lone vulnerable Republican: Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, who’s got a tough fight from Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes.
