Many prognosticators have, seemingly, forgotten the role of family names and connections in politics, and how it will help to affect Senate races in 2014.
Mark Begich in Alaska is the son of a former Congressman.
Mary Landrieu in Louisiana is the daughter and sister of former Mayors of New Orleans.
Mark Pryor in Arkansas is the son of a former Senator.
Michelle Nunn in Georgia is the daughter of a former Senator.
These four races are likely to see Democratic wins, which means the saving of the seats in Alaska, Louisiana, and Arkansas, and the gaining of a seat in Georgia!
