    This is now a lean R at best, as folks were favoring Orman over Roberts in a hypothetical by about 10 points. Now that thats a reality, a coalition of moderate Rs and Dems could very well be enough to flip both the governorship and Senate seat. this gives the Dems a pickup shot, alongside GA and KY, and forces the Rs to spend money, because they arent going to find another  R pickup opportunity to balance Kansas. the chances for pickups have been known for months. SD, MT and WV are likely gone. states like MN NM are not a chances for the Rs, Michigan is coming home to team blue. that leaves places like IA , AK, and NC as the battlegrounds.
