Senate update: Blunt and Toomey win

There is no longer any doubt that the Republicans will control the Senate regardless of how the presidential race goes. Roy Blunt has won in Missouri and Pat Toomey has won in Pennsylvania.

Toomey’s win surprises me. But if had you told me that Donald Trump was going to run strongly in Pennsylvania, I would have picked Toomey to win.

Actually, Toomey is running only about 0.5 points better than Trump in the Keystone State. Thus, it may not be long before Trump gets the call there. That would just about wrap up the presidential race.
