The Cook Political Report on Tuesday shifted Senate races in Georgia, Texas and Alaska, all with Republican incumbents, toward Democrats.

Cook changed its rating for Alaska’s Senate race from “Likely Republican” to “Lean Republican.” Sen. Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska) is seeking reelection against Al Gross, an independent candidate backed by the state Democratic Party. Sullivan led by 4 points in the most recent survey, conducted Sept. 25-Oct. 4 by Alaska Survey Research, but the state has one of the least-polled Senate races.

In Texas, Cook also shifted the race from “Likely Republican” to “Lean Republican.” There, Sen. John Cornyn (R) faces Air Force veteran and former congressional candidate M.J. Hegar. Cornyn leads the race by an average of 7.6 points, according to the RealClearPolitics (RCP) average.

Cook also shifted Georgia’s special Senate election from “Lean Republican” to “toss-up.” Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) is defending her seat in a race that includes Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) and Democratic candidates Raphael Warnock and Matt Lieberman. If no candidate achieves a simple majority, the top two will face a runoff on Jan. 5.

Seriously?  No one I know even knows who is running against Cornyn...lol.

By the way early voting in Texas starts TODAY.

In Georgia, Warnock (D) is polling at less than 30%.  The GOP will hold this seat.
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

@mrpotatohead

The only reason I know who Cornyn's opponent is , is because she runs an obnoxious amount of tv ads. Of course, they don't state her values...just about her military service. Which was impressive but not pertinent to the present. I think she is getting the same money (out of state or else where) that Beto did. And the ads are similar. Beto rode skateboards...Hegar rides a motorcycle. On the bright side, she doesn't fall off of the cycle.

On the first day of early voting, there was an HOUR wait to vote in our very conservative city.  People are coming out of the wood work to vote for Trump....at least locally.  In a small town north of us....they were lined up 100 deep to vote.  Trump supporters are motivated.  I'm hoping the Trump haters are staying home.
