In this week’s race rundown, Republicans are hoping to capitalize on Democrat primaries and infighting in several races across the country, while more cautious Republicans are sounding the alarm over the November midterms.
On the Senate front, Democrats are making a strong play to flip the Arizona seat vacated by Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ). The Democrat in that race is already reserving air time for next week, and the state Democratic Party is using digital ads to attack Republicans.
On the House side, Rep. Elizabeth Esty’s (D-CT) poor handling of abuse allegations in her office led to her announcement this week that she would not seek reelection. The open seat creates an opportunity for Republicans in an otherwise blue state.
