Last I saw had the Rs at 46 seats with no race or they won handily. They then picked up Texas, Tenn, Mizzou, Indiana, and North Dakota. That's the 51 we know for sure.
Right now the Rs are leading in Az, FL, and Montana. If those leads hold, that is the 54.
Mississippi is a runoff that will occur in 3 weeks, but the R should win, and that would make 55.
I'd say if 2020 goes really well for the Rs, getting to 60 is not outside the realm of possbility.
It would have to go really really well...the Senate map for the GOP in 2020 is a shitstorm. If they can get to 56 now, it gives them some wiggle room to keep the chamber, but 60 ain't happening.
