As I have described at the Princeton Election Consortium, the closest races are where your donations are most effective. Among President/Senate/House, the closest question is who will control the House.

Although Senate control is no longer in question, some individual Senate races are in play, including Heitkamp, Carmona, and Tester.

In small-population North Dakota, your donation will have.exceptional leverage. Heitkamp is a strong candidate, but Berg is well-funded. Rating: Among Senate races, this is a top giving priority.

Senator Tester is neck and neck with Rep. Denny Rehberg (R) and has run a sharp campaign. His chances have improved significantly over the last month. Rating: Among Senate races, this is a top giving priority.
