A Republican has not won a U.S. Senate race in the state of Washington since the 20th century. But if Real Clear Politics is to be believed, that may be changing as their latest analysis has moved the tight race between incumbent Democrat Patty Murray and upstart MAGA patriot Tiffany Smiley to “Toss Up.”
According to Brandi Kruse:
Real Clear Politics just moved Washington state’s Senate race from “Leans D” to “Toss up.”

Republicans will need to net +1 in order to take back control of the Senate. Their prospects are very good; of the seven states listed as toss ups, only two are currently red. Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Georgia, and New Hampshire all have Democrats that are vulnerable to losing those seats on November 8.
