Senate Seats Up in 2014

Though Democrats have more Senate seats up in 2014, a majority of the seats at stake are from states that Romney carried.  Seven of the 2014 Democrats represent Romney states while only one Republican (Susan Collins of Maine) comes from an Obama state.  Therefore, Republicans have a good chance of making gains and even taking control of the chamber -- provided that they don't blow it.
