Score two more Senate seats for Republicans.
Despite the best efforts of Mark Udall to turn Cory Gardner into Ken Buck, Gardner decisively beat Udall.
In Montana, Congressman Steve Daines beat Montana State Rep. Amanda Curtis. This was widely expected when Curtis filled in for John Walsh who dropped out of the race amidst a plagiarism scandal. Walsh had been appointed to the Senate after the retirement of Max Baucus.
So the GOP has gained five seats and needs one more to control the Senate.
But things could get complicated if Pat Roberts loses Kansas to “Independent” Greg Orman.
So who will put the GOP over the top? Jodi Ernst in Iowa? Tom Tillis in North Carolina? Or could it be Ed Gillespie in Virginia? Or maybe Dan Sullivan in Alaska?
