Obviously several of these state predictions I take issue with, but the one that is like a zit on a nose is California.
I am wondering why/how you feel Dianne Feinstein a mulitple term powerful incumbent in a mega democratic state is going to lose to Elizabeth Emken, a newcomer and virtual unknown to politics? Emken has no money and is not known for her "moderate" political positions needed to appeal to the democratic leaning electorate of the state? Feinstein is proably in the top 5 most "safe" senators running for reelection. The last polls out had her almost 20pts ahead. Boxer beat off a more serious challenge in 2010 and even that was not completely razor thin, at a 10 point victory.

Minnesota is another egregious bit of hackery here. The polls indicate that Klobuchar klobbers Kurt. It's a safe D seat this cycle with the only question being will Amy have an over 20% margin of victory or not.

The GOP has an outside shot at getting to 60 if King caucuses with them, but that requires them to win every seat they have even a slim hope of winning. Neither California nor Minnesota are available this year.

Feinstein, according to prolong info I got several months ago (when I made this) indicated Feinstein was under 50% in all matchups, indicating severe vulnerability for an incumbent. MN is a wishful thinking scenario, as I like the GOP nominee as he's a Ronulan. Another note in CA is that I was under the impression Campbell or Fiorina would enter the race, and this was a Campbell v. Boxer matchup. I'm going to change this later, but I believe the rest is pretty reasonable. HI is close (really hoping for a Lingle win there), as is NJ and PA is also surprisingly close. But I like Casey. Think of this more as an endorsement map than anything else for now.
