Washington (CNN) - With their eyes on winning control of the U.S. Senate in November, Republicans will be looking Tuesday to the primary for Nebraska's open seat, where the yet-to-be-decided Republican candidate is already favored over the former senator expected to win the Democratic nod.
Sen. Ben Nelson, a Democrat, is retiring, leaving an open race rated by two prominent independent political handicappers as "likely Republican" and "Republican favored."
The GOP will pick up the Senate seat in Nebraska and most of the 22 other Senate seats. Ben Nelson; like the other Democrats are leaving the sinking ship before the subpoenas, prosecutions and sentences (prison time) are handed out.
Democrats see a chance to pick up a seat in Indiana, and still keep the Nebraska seat.
Yeah, and lose seats in Massachusetts, Indiana and Maine.
