The National Republican Senatorial Committee is shifting its spending among swing states, hoping to get the biggest bang for its buck in the effort to return the GOP to control of the Senate.

The NRSC is devoting more money to North Dakota, where Republican Rep. Rick Berg faces a stiff challenge from Democrat Heidi Heitkamp,  Politico reports. They are fighting for the seat vacated by the retirement of Democratic Sen. Kent Conrad.

The NRSC is pulling money from New Mexico, where Democrat Martin Heinrich appears to be pulling ahead of Republican Heather Wilson and from Missouri, where Rep. Todd Akin’s comments about rape and abortion have caused him trouble, and from

Real Clear Politics rates the North Dakota race as a toss-up. Republicans see a victory by Berg as crucial for the party to regain control of the Senate. The party needs a net pick-up of four seats to do so.

The NRSC is paying for $3.1 million of TV ads in North Dakota between Wednesday and Election Day, a committee source told Politico. This person also said the NRSC is canceling its ads in New Mexico and Missouri.

The NRSC also may get busy soon in Ohio and Florida, the source said. Republican strategists believe the Republican challengers there – Josh Mandel in Ohio and Connie Mack in Florida – are making headway against Democratic incumbents – Sherrod Brown in Ohio and Bill Nelson in Florida.
