Republicans need six seats to take back control of the Senate, but there is no sign yet that the GOP is headed for a massive win like what they saw in 2010 or what Democrats saw in 2006.
Congress's investigative arm has stated flatly that the Obama administration broke the law in the Bowe Bergdahl prisoner swap. That's not just partisan sniping.
Did Fareed Zakaria plagiarize material in his most popular book? Can Texas Gov. Rick Perry ride his felony indictment to a 2016 GOP primary win? And why did Jim Jeffords vote to the left of most Democrats after his 2001 party switch?

Many voters remember the disastrous 2012 presidential run by Gov. Rick Perry, highlighted by his 'oops' when words failed him in a debate. Now, he's spending two days in the key early-voting state of New Hampshire.
When Jim Jeffords quit the Republican Party in 2001, he handed control of the Senate back to Democrats. What he did best was vote his conscience. His voice should have been listened to more than it was.
James Foley's calling was documenting the ravages of war as a photojournalist. His tragic death this week is a call to recognize that ISIS is a strategic threat to the American people. President Obama has been slow to the uptake.
