A year ago, analysts thought Republicans would be able to take over the Senate since they are defending only ten seats and the Democrats 23.

But a series of verbal missteps by GOP candidates in some states and tougher than expected races in others now has analysts predicting that Democrats will retain control.

In the House Democrats need to pick up 25 seats to take control from the GOP.

With only about 60 House races that are truly competitive, analysts expect Democrats will gain ground, but will fall short of that magic number.

There are several House races where two incumbents, in some cases from the same party, are facing each other in a contest that was caused by redistricting.
