14 months out until election day...but Prof. Sabato writes today in his Cystal Ball that the things are looking good for the Republicans to take control of the Senate.
23 Democratically-held Senate seats are up for grabs...and three quarters of those, he says, are competitive.
So, even if the GOP loses the Presidency in 2012, all they have to do is win 4 of the Democratically-held Senate seats + keep the seats they have now...to win control of the Senate.
All this and a preview of what Pres. Obama might say in his Democratic Convention Speech next year...in today's Crystal Ball.
