    Could have been a lot worse.  We basically won Delaware, Colorado, and Nevada because the GOP nominated unelectable candidates in those races.  It could've been a 50/50 Senate going into this year.

    That being said, its too bad we couldn't hang on to Illinois and Pennsylvania, those were two very close defeats.  If we had 55 right now there wouldn't even be a sliver's chance of the GOP taking over the upper chamber.

    •  At least we have some obvious targets for 2016 (1+ / 0-)

      with Republicans holding seats in IL, PA, OH, WI, NH & FL - all places where Democrats should be competitive. And that's before any potential GOP retirements come into play - John McCain (80 by then) & Chuck Grassley (83 by then) are getting up there.
