predicted 2006 Senate :
51 R, 49 D (including Jeffords replacement)
I expect only 2 turnovers.
Santorum's going to win.
What do you look for then?
A Republican win in Minnesota, Maryland or New Jersey? Those are the possible offsets I see.
Cantwell is safe? Since when? I also think that DeWine will win.
I like apple turnovers.
Also factor in that Lieberman might be in the Senate as an Independent.
Don't rule out WA there......
Of the 4 in question, I would consider Santorum the only serious loss. I'm admittedly ignorant about Burns, but DeWine is an anti-gun RINO and Chafee is even worse.
I'm tired of seeing the GOP watered down by liberal RINOs, and I don't see any other way to get rid of them if they won't lose in primaries.
My finance and brother in law who is a big Repub up there in Montana seems to think Montana will stay Repub with Burns though he is linked big time with Abramhoff....he votes 100% but is kind of a scum bag a bit.....we shall see
You're right. Maria Cantwell's lead is shrinking to Mike McGavick, former CEO of Safeco insurance, who's putting a ton of his own money into the race. Cantwell's lead is down to 3 or 4 points, and her pro-Iraq war views may depress Democrat turnout.
It's hard to believe Montana would have 2 Democratic Senators.
If Cantwell loses in Washington and Burns wins, that would mean only 2 losses, as predicted above by another poster.
We can get rid of all the Rinos, just vote for the Rat. That will fix`em,(and us too).
Harry Reid for King!
What good is a 51-49 "control" when we don't have it now?
OK, here's mine,Senate +2 R, House +6 R.
Why? Because I say so! :D
Kean will take Jersey and Santorum will win in Pa.!
If he manages to win as an Indy.
But there's a fringer running now and he can take votes away from Casey.
