Republican Senate Takeover in… Connecticut?

Could be


With Democrats defending five open seats, Republicans have a chance to capture control of the Connecticut Senate tonight for the first time since 1994, when John G. Rowland won his first term as governor and the GOP captured a 19-17 majority.

The GOP could win the Senate, now controlled by a 22-14 Democratic majority, by capturing five Democratic seats. A GOP pickup of four seats  would produce an 18-18 tie to be broken by the lieutenant governor.
