Republicans have 8 seats up for election, and two look vulnerable
Nevada Dean Heller (R)
Arizona Jeff Flake (R) (retiring)

Nebraska Deb Fischer (R)
Texas Ted Cruz (R)
Mississippi Roger Wicker (R)
Tennessee Bob Corker (R) (retiring)
Wyoming John Barrasso (R)
Utah Orrin Hatch (R)


Orrin Hatch(born March 22, 1934) is the longest-serving Republican Senator in U.S. history (42 years). He will be running for his 8th time.

Too early to vote in the poll.

We have to wait and see how much influence Steve Bannon has on picking the GOP candidates. Fingers crossed he gets his way and we get a bunch of Roy Moores on the ballot!

You mean the guy who should have lost in a landslide but almost pulled it out?

I mean the guy had the full backing of the RNC & Trump yet somehow got an Alabama Democrat elected to the Senate.

You must be in a different reality than the rest of us.

Yep. The reality where Donald's approval rating is below 35 and Hillary ain't running in 2020.

I still cant believe we have a Dem Senator from Alabama
Everything is pointing to
Donald Trump imploding due to the mid term election results crashing the republican party
Somebody pinch me, I need to make sure I am not just dreaming and we have a Dem Senator in Alabama

I'm not sure that the Alabama election stands for a tidal wave against Donald Trump. In the mid term elections the sex scandals are going to fall evenly on Republicans and Democrats.

Democrats have to win a net +2 Senate races to get control of the Senate, and there are 10 Democratic Senators running in states that voted for Trump

Voted for Romney and Trump
Indiana: Joe Donnelly (D)
Missouri: Claire McCaskill (D)
Montana: Jon Tester (D)
North Dakota: Heidi Heitkamp (D)
West Virginia: Joe Manchin (D)

Voted for Trump but not Romney
Pennsylvania: Bob Casey Jr. (D)
Wisconsin: Tammy Baldwin (D)
Florida: Bill Nelson (D)
Ohio: Sherrod Brown (D)
Indiana: Joe Donnelly (D)



It is conceivable that Republicans could lose 2 seats in Nevada and Arizona, but the possibility of all 10 of those Democratic incumbent Senators is statistically very unlikely.

The senate will be tough for Dems in that they have more to defend
on the flip side
All House seats up for grabs :-)
Although that will be tough with gerrymandering. Take myself. I live in Democratic Tampa yet my congressman is a republican from the rural county just north of me :-( Florida 12th congressional district
Bama still gives me hope
