Democrats on National Journal's Political Insiders panel choose Sens. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., and Kay Hagan, D-N.C., as the party's most-endangered member in 2014. This week's Insiders Poll shows Republicans agree Hagan is most vulnerable, but they pick Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska, as second on the list of promising GOP targets.

Majorities of Insiders from both parties also said the National Rifle Association has been more effective in the recent debate over the nation's gun laws than President Obama.
