The University of Virginia's Center for Politics published an article called Sabato's Crystal Ball on March 22, 2012, detailing the eight races in the Senate in 2012 that would impact the political fate of which party ended up with control in 2013. The seat rated a toss-up that Sabato's Crystal Ball believed was most likely to depend on the outcome of the Presidential election in November is the Senate seat in Virginia. According to the article, "outcome of this race will largely be determined by which party claims Virginia’s 13 electoral votes in November."
