Axios: The 2018 Senate elections to keep an eye on

Nevada: Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen will most likely run against incumbent Republican Dean Heller, who has been almost unanimously named the most vulnerable Republican in the 2018 midterms after flip-flopping on GOP's health care bills — opposing the original proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act, but voting in favor of the "skinny" repeal.

Heller, Rosen declared winners, setting up Senate showdown

WASHINGTON — Republican Sen. Dean Heller and Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen easily won their Nevada primaries Tuesday, setting up what is expected to be one of the most closely watched Senate races in the nation.

Heller and Rosen have ignored their party’s challengers for weeks. With their primary victories in hand, the two candidates are now focused on the November election.

Party leaders predict a close race, with the most vulnerable Senate Republican being challenged by a Democratic freshman congresswoman. ...

Meanwhile, the nonpartisan Cook Political Report has rated the race a “toss up.”

Democrats have targeted the seat in their bid to cut into the Republican’s razor-thin 51-49 majority in the Senate. Republicans have vowed to hold it at all costs.

Heller has raised more money than Rosen, but she has outperformed Heller in the past two quarters. Nonetheless, outside spending is expected to eclipse candidate spending in the race.

Nevada Senate race between Heller, Rosen rated as tossup

WASHINGTON — The Senate race pitting incumbent Republican Dean Heller against Democratic challenger Jacky Rosen, a first-term congresswoman, is so tight that two major political handicappers have called it a toss-up.

In fact, the race is so close, Geoffrey Skelley of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, which produces Sabato’s Crystal Ball, said that if he were Heller and President Donald Trump offered to stump for him, “I’d probably prefer the president stay away.”

Both Sabato’s Crystal Ball and polling firm Ipsos rate the Nevada race as one of six toss-up Senate races, though neither breaks down the percentages of support for either candidate.

The two operations on Tuesday announced a joint venture, www.political-atlas.com, that adds a social media trend component to their forecasts.

The new social media forecast, which is expected to factor in voter enthusiasm, also rates the Nevada race a toss-up.
