Akin is in a contested primary against former Missouri State Treasurer Sarah Steelman, with businessman and longtime Akin donor John Brunner seriously looking into joining the race. Steelman came out in support of an earlier Republican bill that included a balanced-budget amendment. The eventual Republican nominee will face off against Sen.

He has been trying to shore up his conservative bona fides since it became clear he could face a challenge from the right, although Chris Chocola, president of the conservative Club for Growth, indicated to The Hill Monday that Hatch's recent votes won't stop the deep-pocketed group from targeting him.

Rehberg is running against Sen. John Tester (D-Mont.), and Flake is running for the Arizona Senate seat that will be vacated by retiring Sen. John Kyl (R).

Chaffetz and Akin are dependent on their state's Tea Party adherents to win their primaries. Flake is unlikely to face a serious primary, but has taken some centrist stances on immigration that have angered some of the state's conservatives.

Rehberg will likely have a clean shot at Tester in the Republican-leaning state. He said he could not support the plan because it did not include a balanced-budget amendment.
