The star computers are aligning: GOP wins Senate

The Washington Post and New York Times have both released their latest models for control of the Senate. And both have the Republicans winning the majority. The Times gives Republicans a 67 percent chance to gain the six seats they need. Meanwhile, the Post comes in at 63 percent.

Interestingly, both computers don’t think the GOP needs Colorado to make it to 51 seats. In fact, both give Udall the edge – though a very slight edge — over Cory Gardner. The Times weighs in at 57 percent, the Post at 64 percent.
