    That’s the way I read it, too.

    Bummer.

    FWIW…

    Castor may very well hold that FL Senate seat for the Dems.

    Also, never count out ol’ Tom “Landslide” Daschle…

    So, the GOP could realistically pick up only a single Senate seat this election.

    Cheer up! ;-)

    I’m pretty good at this, alright!

    I was only wrong in a single race: Alaska. I picked the Dem to win, but he didn’t.

    Instead of a 54-45-1 Senate, we have a 55-44-1 Senate!

    It’s GOOD to be wrong… ;-D

    RJ – I’m just curious, is your arm a little sore from patting yourself on the back???

    Just kidding, you did a better job than the people that get paid a lot of money to do it!

    Thanks, Andy.

    We conservative-to-moderate armchair pundits have a much better track record than the MSM in predicting such things. We don’t live in a liberal bubble. We don’t look down on ACTUAL VOTERS as some sort of lower life form.

    In short, WE GET IT, and they don’t.
