Many millions of people are sharply focused on the upcoming presidential election...and that’s a good thing.
same millions of people haven’t spent two minutes discussing...or even
thinking about...the 33 seats in the United States Senate that will also

minute that’s spent ignoring the race to control the United States
Senate is another very valuable minute for Barack Obama and the Democrat

everyone to start thinking about, talking about and getting involved in
elections that are just as important.
