Yeah, that’s what they said the last time. And every one of the establishment nominees went down in flames.
Although, this class of seats is a good one. This is the same class where the republicans held their ground in the Clinton reelection, and took back the senate from the democrats in 2002 after Jim Jeffords betrayal. The 2008 tide was a well-funded fluke. Most of the seats either have freshmen or retirements.
The keys to a senate majority will be good candidates defeating moderate establishent nominees. Oh, and for an actual majority, we need to defeat Lindsey Graham. And getting rid of Collins, McConnell, Corny, Enzi and Alexander in primaries would be nice too!
And 2008 is the 'fluke' of the first Black president 0bama coronation wave.
There are at least 13 states that can elect a candidate to the Senate that is more like Ted Cruz than Juan McQueeg.
