The Republican Senate Campaign has a motto, “Two Seats”. That’s all they need to regain a majority. It’s not looking good. From an article in The Hill
In recent days, wealthy businesswoman Anne Estabrook (R) dropped out of the race in New Jersey, a large-scale recruiting effort failed on former South Dakota Lt. Gov. Steve Kirby (R), and the filing period passed for Sen. Mark Pryor’s (D-Ark.) seat without one GOP candidate on the ballot.
The filing deadline for two other targeted races, Iowa and Montana, is Friday and Thursday, respectively, and no major or well-funded candidate has yet signed up for either one.
With the West Virginia deadline already passed, the committee is basically limited to recruiting in New Jersey and South Dakota. It has less than a month, though Ensign said he hopes to have an answer from a candidate in the latter this weekend.
