Washington (CNN)The most interesting Senate race in 2018 might have nothing to do with whether Republicans or Democrats control the chamber after this year's midterm elections.
The decision Tuesday by Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah to retire teed up Mitt Romney -- the 2012 Republican presidential nominee turned leading intra-party critic of President Donald Trump -- to run for a job that would give him major influence over the remainder of Trump's presidency. But Hatch is a Republican. Romney is a Republican. And if Romney is stopped, it'll be because another Republican won the nomination in Utah. It'll be a fascinating state to watch -- but it won't tip the partisan balance of the Senate. For that, look to two of Utah's neighbors: Nevada and Arizona.

This from the Cannabis News Network??
True, but weirdly it is a pretty fair analysis of the election.
They are showing 8 D seats that could flip to R.
And this is cfnn so it is probably even more dismal for the D.
I think the Hosue will stay put.
Anybody who makes predictions before August is being somewhat silly. If the economy crashes or other events intervene, then yes, the GOP loses. But if the economy rises and the mood of the country with it, the Dems are toast.
Rest assured, regardless, the MSMs theme was, is and ever shall be GOP in grave trouble. Dont bother voting, its over. Cue the polls, its over. Believe us, its over.
Indeed burned out minds at work.
I can’t click on the CNN website. My mouse won’t do it. It knows its a trap.
You can’t beat somebody with nobody, and in a couple of races a crowded field may result in a candidate of the Mourdock/Akins/Moore mold. The long and the short of it is that the GOP will probably pick up some seats, but not as many as they could have.
Claire McCackel is due for replacement in Missouri.
She doesn’t get to pick her opponent like last time.
If Trump begins to deport the illegals, and there is a crackdown on voter fraud, the Democrats won’t have a prayer in November.
Yes, we may have 59 Republican senators which will enable McConnell to turn legislative control of the Senate over to just one democrat.
As always, it is the economy, stupid CNN. That and events not foreseeing and events unimagined.
“...Anybody who makes predictions before August is being somewhat silly...”
Yes, it is what the leftist, RAT media does for a living. Writing the future to suit their agenda before it even happens....
CNN has about as much business in the "predicting election results" effort as they have presenting real news.
They've not been able to do either in any meaningful way.
We will hold the Senate...and barring the sudden influx of dreaming voters in some states...we will hold the House.
I cant click on the CNN website. My mouse wont do it. It knows its a trap.
That’s just what we need, some unheard-of far right candidate who will split the vote with Romney so a Democrat can win in another deep red state. Just brilliant.
The Democrat Party in 2018 is incapable of nominating anyone rational enough to flip a red district.
The Roy Moore race was a very bizarre outlier.
Do they have any evidence to support that statement? /s
That's what I thought about Alabama was a sure thing! It's going to come down to the wire and it is going to be a battle to the end...take nothing for granted! They will cheat, steal, and kill if possible to regain both houses! Satan their lord and master SOROS own the voting machines..let that sink in!!!
