The prince of political punditry, Stu Rothenberg, has examined incumbent Republican Thelma Drake's re-election chances. He has issued a pronouncement.
"A headache for Republicans.''
She's a Republican.
Rothenberg now figures the Drake-Phil Kellam race is a coin-flipper, a toss-up. He had been rating the race as leaning Drake's way.
In a nationwide look at close-fought House races, Rothenberg is now projecting that the Democrats win 15-20 seats (up from 8-12 seats a few months ago) in November's election and take control of the House.
"Unlike previous election cycles, the onus is now on the GOP to save at least a handful of seats before Election Day,'' he said in his monthly political report.
