Both parties have much at stake in state Senate races
09/29/2010 07:32 PM
Over the next several weeks, cn|2 Politics and our daily program, Pure Politics, will place a special emphasis on covering the state Senate races.
Control of the chamber is at stake with 15 of the 19 seats up for election this fall being contested. Of those, as many as a dozen could prove to be at least somewhat competitive. (This summer, cn|2 Politics published an initial outlook of the state Senate races, and we will have an updated version coming soon.)
Here’s an overview piece about what leaders from both parties are saying about the importance of these races:
Pure Politics will feature more analysis of the races and profiles of some of the hottest state Senate races over the next several days.
