I think Carper said he's retiring. He's basically the weakest and apparently laziest Senator in the history of the Republic.

I have more posts on Free Republic than he has hits on the Internet.

Plenty of time to find and vet some great primary challengers to these RINO’s.

She’s serving out the rest of the Hillary’s term. Part of the reason there wasn’t a huge campaign ran against her is that people preferred to save their effort for 2012 and a full 6 year term.

The list is missing Amy Klobuchar (D-MN). She’s a non-entity beatable in 2012.

To: Whats the Matter with Kansas?

Sen. Sherrod Brown of Ohio is married to Connie Schultz, an untra-leftist columinist for the Cleveland, OH Plain Dealer newspaper. Connie uses her byline name, not Mrs. Sherrod Brown in TV appearances, creating a false impression that she is just another MSM leftist journalist, and her viewpoints are her own. Brown is a dedicated leftist also, but doesn’t flaunt it like his wife does.

Connie constantly rants about the need for taxpayer paid abortions on demand, regardless of how close to the due date the baby is in the womb. I always wonder about these strident feminists - what motivates their extreme hatred of the unborn? Was it hatred of her own mother who gave her birth, or what pleasure does it give her to convince a young mother with a child to submit to the butcher’s knife?

I don’t know if Connie and Sherrod have children of their own; or if Connie had a child out of wedlock years ago; or if she and/or Sherrod are infertile; but whatever the reason, Connie preaches a hatred for the unborn that is morally abnormal. Is it normal for a college educated married woman to preach for the butchering of unborn babies?

Freeper Right to Lifers should contact Connie at cschultz@plaind.com. Her office phone is (216) 999-5087. She rarely answers her phone but you can leave a message which she may or may not listen to.

I am in NY media market (North Jersey). I follow politics and am interested in the process. I don’t even know who is running against Gilibrand. I have not seen one commercial. Not one print add. I see hers all the time. They portray her as a mother who is fighting for working families. The commercials are good and very non-partisan. I don’t even think they mention her party affiliation. Bad, bad job by GOP, both in recruiting candidate (if Rudy really wanted to be a credible Pres. contender he should have run for this Senate seat or for Governor) and in getting message out. I think they just wrote this one off.

Hillary’s seat. She was appointed to seat after Hilliary took Secretary of State job. Tuesday’s election is for remainder of what was Hilliary’s Senate term.

2012 is a long way off, but unless conditions change radically, here is (IMHO) how some of the 2012 Senate races might break down.

California - Diane Feinstein: DiFi will be 79 in 2012. She would still be a formidable opponent, but it’s possible she might retire. If Boxer beats Fiorina in 2010, I’d think Carly would be a strong bet for the open seat.

Florida - Bill Nelson: Probably not a pushover, but I think he’s beatable. BTW, is it just me, or does the guy look like one of those creepy animatronic figures when speaks?

Hawaii - Daniel Akaka: The seat will be his until retirement or death.

Michigan - Debbie Stabenow: I think this one will be very much in play. I saw that a hypothetical matchup between her and John Engler in 2012 already has her behind by a few points. Two years is a long time, but I’ve yet to find a Michigander who can stand her.

Missouri - Claire McCaskill: I think the GOP has a very, very good chance here.

Nebraska - Ben Nelson: Nelson’s working overtime to repair his image by 2012, but I don’t think it will be enough.

New York - Kirsten Gillibrand: Probably safe, unless an exceptional challenger comes along for the GOP.

Ohio - Sherrod Brown: IMHO, he’ll be toast come 2012.

Washington - Maria Cantwell: Another that’s probably safe unless a really exceptional challenger runs against her. Dino Rossi will already either be a Senator or 3-time loser by 2012.

Given that 67 percent of Nebraskans oppose the current health care reform, it shouldn’t be too difficult to “Give Ben the Boot.”

I would expect Bill White to run for Kay Bailey’s seat after he loses to Rick Perry. Fortunately we have a couple of excellent conservative people should they wish to run.

There are a lot of reasons to think the republicans could get 60 seats in 2012. The argument would be of course that to repeal Obamacare, they need that many. The Reps just have to be cautious of scaring the voters with the secondary goals their members would have. They can’t be a rubber stamp for the house.

“if Rudy really wanted to be a credible Pres. contender he should have run for this Senate seat or for Governor”

Correct. Rudy needs to be vigorously laughed out of the room if he ever hints at even trying for Prez ... he could have been Gov or Senator, but he ducked.

And the NY GOP is a basketcase. They muffed multipled opportunities, screwed up 2 special elections and just threw away an awesome opportunity to take on Democrats in the senate. Shameful!

Could anyone beat Kerry in ‘14? He was up for election in ‘08 but quit his prez run in time to run for re-election that year, so he’s up in ‘14.

2010 was a special election to fill Clinton’s wife’s seat.
