(All names in parentheses are of GOP challengers, of course. Both because I have no interest in helping Democratic candidates and because Cook has been a not-quite-monotonous constant drumbeat of good news for the GOP lately.)
- In the Senate: they knocked Delaware (Christine O’Donnell) all the way down to Lean Democrat, but bumped Connecticut (Linda McMahon) up to Toss-Up.
- In the House: ME-01 (Dean Scontras) and IA-02 (Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks) got put on the board as Likely Democrat; OH-06 (Bill Johnson) and WV-03 (Spike Maynard) are now Lean Democrat; and IL-17 (Bobby Schilling) is now Toss-Up.
Consistent with things continuing to slide off of the beam for Democrats this year, in other words.
