The Importance of US Senate Races in 2020

The Senate races this November are second only to the Presidential race. While all of the 435 House of Representatives seats will be up for election, only 1/3+ of the 100 Senate seats are to be decided.

23 Republican and 12 Democrat seats are to be decided. While the GOP currently holds a small majority in the Senate, the GOP has nearly TWICE as many seats in jeopardy as do the Dems.

I’d suggest that at least 19 of those Republican seats are pretty safe. I also think Arizona, NC and Maine will go Republican. I think we could see 54 seats in November being in Republican control.

Yes. I think the imbalance in seats to be possibly transferred is not as significant as might be feared. Now if we can swing the reclaiming of the House, we can finally attain the gateway for unlimited opportunities to work for the good of the people. Such a situation would be impeded only by the presence of several RINOS.

We’ll be able to tell Pelosi and Schumer to go pound sand.

As long as the left wing socialist’s have taken over the democratic party, every election cycle is crucial.

There is no better explanation for that than what they are currently doing to this country.

With a Trump win and a Republican House and Senate, the possibility of protecting future elections will be enhanced.

Will it asaratis?

Didn’t we have that before? What were the results?

That was during the first half of the first term. Trump was hampered by Paul RINO Ryan as Speaker and a slew of Obama holdovers in other positions. along with an army of never-Trumpers in both parties…and John Traitor McCain.

I think his success in fighting against all of that has earned him some respect.

You are more optimistic than I :wink:

And the Colorado seat will likely go democrat. The influx of progressives seeking to destroy another state has happened.

Yes, the number of Republican seats in jeopardy, vis-a-vis the number of Democratic seats in jeopardy, would appear–on the surface, at least–to cause alarm bells to go off in the GOP.

Upon closer examination, however, many of those GOP seats that are up in 2020 are in states that were carried by Donald Trump in 2016–and that will almost certainly be carried by him again.

And it is highly unusual (I think only four percent of the time, in recent history) for an incumbent senator to lose in his bid for re-election, while a sitting president of the same party wins his (or her) state.

Perhaps that is because of the current trend of avoiding ticket splitting (due, apparently, to a strong party loyalty)…
