Break The Democrat’s Strangle Hold On The Senate

Break The Democrat’s Strangle Hold On The Senate

Let’s Get It In Gear And Take Back The US Senate!

By Dell Hill

If I have to start hitting people between the eyes with a 2 x 4, I’ll do it. 

The Republican Presidential primary season has everyone talking presidential politics and forgetting what could turn out to be the most important issue of the year - CONTROL OF THE SENATE.

Even if the President should win re-election, it’s the control of the Senate that will make all of the difference.

The slate of Senate elections will heavily favor Republicans in 2012.

Democrats will defend 23 seats, while Republicans will defend 10.

Six Democratic incumbents have declined to run: Sens. Daniel Akaka of Hawaii, Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico, Kent Conrad of North Dakota, Herb Kohl of Wisconsin, Nelson, and Jim Webb of Virginia.  

Republicans, by contrast, have only one vulnerable seat left open, vacated by retiring Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl.

Democrats will face between eight and 11 competitive races to defend seats they currently hold.  The most competitive Democratic-held seats represent Hawaii, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Republicans, meanwhile, will face only two to four competitive races to hold onto seats.  Competitive GOP-held seats will be contested in Arizona, Indiana, Massachusetts, and Nevada.

Dell’s Bottom Line:

It won’t be easy, but control of the Senate is within reach.  Great strides were made in 2010 and there’s absolutely no good reason why that job can’t be completed in 2012.

Find out the status of YOUR state’s senatorial campaign and act accordingly.
