Fergus Cullen: Comparing votes to Romney reveals relative strength of state senators

A good way to measure the electoral strength of state senators is to compare how they do against the top of their ticket in their district. By this measure, the top performing Republican state senators in contested races were state Sens. Bob Odell, Jeb Bradley, and Jeannie Forrester. They ran 14, 11, and 8 points ahead of Mitt Romney in their districts.
