Republicans have known for months that their House majority is in genuine peril. But after another bruising showing in a special election, some in the party are reconsidering the once inconceivable notion of losing the Senate.
It's a sobering possibility, particularly given Republican' confidence not long ago that they probably would increase their Senate edge after the November vote.

Lawyers for a British tourist who claims he was badly hurt taking part in an illusion by Las Vegas Strip headliner David Copperfield told a judge on Wednesday that they've found three other people who were injured in Copperfield shows over the years.
