2014 Election Race Ratings: Utah Senate (Updated 10/07/2014)

With less than a month to go, here's our latest look at the 2014 races for Utah Senate. There are 14 seats up for election this year, but we don't see much, if any, change coming in 2014.

Our rating scale:

  • "Safe" seats mean there is no challenger from the opposing party.
  • "Solid" means the seat is likely to remain in that party's control.
  • "Lean" means the party should keep control of the seat, but it's in some doubt because of a retirement or strong challenger.
  • "Toss-up" means control of the seat is in doubt.
In our view, only two seats could be "in play" in 2014. Sen. Pat Jones is retiring from Senate 4 and Sen. Stuart Reid is retiring from Senate 18, which could provide an opportunity for the other party.
