Florida State Senate ratings: Dems slip in Districts 7 & 34

in Uncategorized by

Democratic blogger Dave Trotter updates his rankings of the forty State Senate races.  With Brian Scarborough droppping out of the race in SD 7, this seat moves from “leans Republican” to ‘likely Republican”, while SD 34 goes from “leans Democrat” to “toss up” after a poll was released this past week that indicates Republican Ellyn Bogdanoff is ahead of Democrat Maria Sachs.

Based on these projections, the Democrats would win 13 seats, the Republicans would win 25 and 2 races are a toss up.
