Will Republicans Take the Senate?

The GOP needs to pick up just six seats to win control of Congress' upper chamber. According to David Bositis, senior political analyst at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, African-American voters are key to helping some senators keep their seats. They include North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagin and Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu.
