Why Republicans failed to take back the Senate
Posted by Staff
The Daily Caller reports:

One year ago today, Republicans were on the cusp of taking back the Senate. Of all the seats coming up for grabs in 2012, most were held by retiring or vulnerable Democrats, leaving only a small sliver were held by Republicans.

“Virtually all of the vulnerability is on the Democratic side this cycle,” one Republican Insider told National Journal in the September 2011 insider poll. “Of 10 to 12 competitive races, two are GOP seats, and we only need to pick up four.”

But by the early hours of Wednesday morning, the day after election day, even as senate races dragged on in Montana, Nevada, and North Dakota, it was clear that Republicans had failed to take back the Senate.
