Predicted Senate Control (114th Congress):
Party Seats Up Seats Not Up Total Seats


Democrats keep the majority in the US Senate by holding onto MI,NH,NC,and LA(Landrieu-D either gets 50.1 percent in November or wins the December runoff since she will end up being the 48th seat if she were to win). Democrats will pick up GA-Nunn-D gets 50.1 percent in November or wins December runoff since she will end up being the 49th seat if she were to win. That leaves us KS- Orman-I wins by a plurality. He decides to caucus with the Democrats after Landrieu-LA and Nunn-GA victories in December.

Republicans lose GA and KS, hold onto KY, and gain MT,WV,SD,AK,AR,CO,and IA- 50 seats. They win the GA and LA runoffs in December- 52 seats Orman-KS decides to caucus with the Republicans- 53 seats. If Brown-NH and Tillis-NC win- 55 seats in a strong GOP wave. <br /> 2016- Democrats lose NV- Reid-D loses to Sandoval-R and CO- Bennett-D loses to Tipton-R- 43D <br /> Democrats will need to pick up 7 seats to regain control of the U.S. Senate assuming Hillary wins in November. Democrats win WI- Feingold-D vs Johnson-R rematch, PA- Kane-D defeats Sestak-D in primary then Toomey-R in the general, IL- Kirk-R loses to either Madigan-D,Hynes-D or Vallas-D, AZ- Giffords/Kelly defeat McCain or the R that defeats McCain in the primary, KY- Paul-R has to retire to run for President. Grimes-D,Conway-D or Edelen-D defeat the likely GOP nominee, FL- Graham,Sink,and Wasserman Schultz, defeats Rubio, and GA- Isakson-R retires or loses in the GOP primary- Nunn-D or Carter-D defeats the likely GOP nominee.

Problem- GA runoff is not until January 6, after the Senate organizes. Orman would caucus with the GOP in this scenario, at least initially.
