GOP makes gains on Senate scoreboard

By  | 

From Politico:

After a raucous February, Republican Senate candidates were on the rise in March, making gains in Nevada, Missouri, Ohio and Florida in POLITICO’s Senate Monthly 10, a roundup of the most competitive contests in the country.

Angus King’s independent candidacy in Maine is complicating the GOP’s march to the Senate majority, but developments in the two states where Republicans are on defense — Massachusetts and Nevada — have buttressed the party’s confidence.

Republican Sen. Scott Brown regained some strength in the Bay State, while in Nevada, first-term GOP Sen. Dean Heller is benefiting from his rival’s ethical troubles.
