“An unexpected Alabama victory last year and President Trump’s underwater approval rating have stoked Democrats’ hopes of winning back the Senate majority this year. But with the heart of the map playing out in a dozen states that Trump carried, even some of the best-positioned Democratic incumbents and challengers may only win by a few points.”

“Florida remains the biggest question mark, but still makes the list, while Pennsylvania misses the cut again as” Rep. Lou Barletta (R-PA 11) “faces mounting concerns over his campaign.”

“One month into the election year, here is Hotline’s list of the Senate races to watch, ranked in order of most likely to change party control.”

1) Nevada

2) Missouri

3) Indiana

4) Arizona

5) West Virginia

6) North Dakota

7) Florida

8) Wisconsin

9) Ohio

10) Montana (Hotline reporting)
