The midterm elections next week could change the balance of power in Washington. While most political analysts have suggested it would be difficult for Democrats to wrest control of the House from Republicans, the Senate is generally considered to be a near tossup between the parties. Currently, the Democrats control the chamber, which has 50 Democrats, 49 Republicans, and one Independent who generally votes with the Democrats.

The map below shows the status of this year's 34 Senate races, based on an analysis by the staff of The Cook Political Report, an independent, nonpartisan newsletter published in Washington. This analysis was updated on Oct. 20, 2002.
