GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — Democrats are bracing for tough Senate races in states they hoped to win easily just two months ago.

That's thanks to the fiasco following the launch of President Barack Obama's health care law.

There were weeks of problems with the enrollment website and much anxiety over policy cancellations for millions of people.

It's all hurt Democratic candidates Gary Peters in Michigan and Mark Udall in Colorado — and Republicans now see a better shot at retaking the Senate.

The GOP needs to pick up six seats to do that. Winning Michigan or Colorado would be a huge boost.

Both Peters, a three-term congressman, and Udall, a first-term senator, voted for the 2010 law. They also echoed Obama's now disproven claim that people could keep the health insurance they had.
