Hagan seat changed from 'Lean Democrat" to "Tossup/Tilt Democrat'

Stu Rothenberg, a noted national political analyst, has moved North Carolina 2014 Senate race from “lean Democrat” to “tossup/tilt Democrat.''

Writing in his blog Wednesday, Rothenberg, editor of the Rothenberg Political Report, based the changed on the changing national political landscape with recent controversies having put the Obama administration on the defensive and breathed new life into the Republicans.

Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan plans to seek re-election, but it is far from clear who will emerge from a large potential field of GOP candidates.

“Given the different natures of of midterm electorates,” Rothenberg writes,” the new political narrative increases the risk for Democratic candidates in red states, where Democrats must win independent and, in many cases, Republican voters to be successful.''
