Senate Race Rankings

Our Hotline colleagues are out today with the latest Senate Race Rankings, a complete guide to the 20 races that will be decided this November.

August has been a roller coaster month for the campaigns, with Rep. Todd Akin unexpectedly boosting Sen. Claire McCaskill's chances in Missouri, for instance, write our colleagues. What are the highlights from this latest edition of the rankings?

In this, the eighth installment of Hotline's monthly Senate rankings, we examine the seats most likely to change partisan control after the November elections. That is, we see Sen. Ben Nelson's seat in Nebraska as more likely to wind up in Republican hands than Sen. Kent Conrad's seat in North Dakota, and Scott Brown more likely to lose to a Democrat than Sen. Dean Heller of Nevada.
