The first Senate seat pickup for the Republicans Possible third seat, but I’ll wait for a count

Senate seat pickup number two

November 5th, 2014 at 12:57pm

It looks like Republicans have now picked up two of the six Senate seats they require in order to form a majority.

In Arkansas, Tom Cotton looks likely to defeat incumbent Democrat Mark Pryor.

Republicans have picked up two of the six seats needed to gain the Senate majority, with Fox News projecting GOP Rep. Tom Cotton will unseat two-term Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor in Arkansas and Shelley Moore Capito will beat Democrat Natalie Tennant for an open Senate seat in West Virginia.

(h/t FoxNews.com)

As I write this, with 16% counted, Tom Cotton leads Mark Pryor 52% to 45% (73,904 to 63,692). In West Virginia with 35% counted, Shelley Moore Capito is leading Natalie Tennant 61% to 35% (113,822 to 66,093).

Good start, but early days still.
