Posted on 10/24/2011 9:24:16 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd
1. Ben Nelson, D-Neb.
2. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo.
3. Jon Tester, D-Mont.
4. Scott Brown, R-Mass.
5. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah
6. Dick Lugar, R-Ind.
7. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio
8. Bill Nelson, D-Fla.
9. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine
10. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash.
It would be nice to see him fade into the sunset.
unfortunately putting Lugar on that list was just wishful thinking.
Orrin Hatch? He is a lock now that there is no primary challenge. Snowe has no challenger either as far as I know. Only Lugar faces a real primary challenge. If he gets by that, he is also a lock for reelection.
1. Ben Nelson, D-Neb. vulnerable in General Election
2. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo. vulnerable in General Election
3. Jon Tester, D-Mont. vulnerable in General Election
4. Scott Brown, R-Mass. vulnerable in General Election
5. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah vulnerable in Primary Election
6. Dick Lugar, R-Ind. vulnerable in Primary Election
7. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio vulnerable in General Election
8. Bill Nelson, D-Fla. vulnerable in General Election
9. Olympia Snowe, R-Maine vulnerable in Primary Election
10. Maria Cantwell, D-Wash. vulnerable in General Election
Dick Lugar is the only surprise here. Must have ticked off some TP folks.
The rest can all be tossed in the toilet and flushed.
Not so! Hatch will likely suffer the same fate as Bob Bennett did. Hatch will not get past the Party convention. Anyone with a pulse will beat any RAT that runs. It’s Utah, the most conservative state in the union.
The Boston Globe has gone all out to make sure that Warren beats Brown. You would never know that she still has a primary to win.
I’m not real happy with Brown but she would be a nightmare.
I’d like to see each of them defeated by conservatives.
All look to become victims of the Tea Party with the exception of Scott Brown. I expect voters in deep blue Massachusetts to whole-heartedly embrace Elizabeth Warren and her eat-the-rich rhetoric.
Seems to me like there's a lot of Rat garbage that is likely to get dumped.
Snowe? Don’t see it happening.
With voting fraud and corruption, these lifelong (fu *mericans) will never get voted out. Don’t you get it? They have rigged the system.
Just look at them in a townhall, yelling at the voters, “How dare you talk to ME like that!”
The current bunch in DC are no better than feudal Lords in Europe. They don’t care about “the people” or election. They care about looting and getting as much money as they can before they get the boot.
Corruption, incompetence, cronies, that is our government today.
rumor is that Bill Nelson will retire and our ex-Govnor RINO Charlie Crist will run as a DEM to replace Nelson. Crist is still popular and he is FRIENDS with the Morgans (of Morgan and Morgan Law Firm), who had a FUND RAISER for 0 in Orlando.
When 0 was in Orlando, he was confused with MICKEY MOUSE!!!
Ben Nelson is on the endangered list for good reason. However, the people running against him have made stupid mistakes. One has lost against him 2 or 3 times already. Also, Ben has millions of dollars stored up and has been running ads regularly (almost daily) since the Obamacare fiasco. When he gets nearer the election, I expect them to run 24-7
I never figured Scott Brown would be more than a part term Senator. It would be nice to see Orrin Hatch and Olympia Snowe replaced by conservatives.
Wow! They are all either Democrats or RINOs.
I’d like to see all of them replaced by conservatives.
Scott Brown seems to be a pretty popular guy in MA.
He is on one of the radio stations I listen to quite often.
He comes across as a normal guy, knows sports , follows the Boston teams. He does not say stupid things like Senator Lurch(my favorite Red Sox player is Manny Ortiz).
Plus a lot of woman will vote for him because he is good looking.
Snowe has two primary challengers I believe. Neither is very strong but there's a lot of Republican base contempt for Snowe up here.
Hatch and Lugar are primary endangered.
FYI, Herb Kohl is not running. Announced his retirement quite a several months ago. Tommy Thompson is running for Kohl’s seat.
Who is challenging Hatch in the primary? Chaffetz is not running against him.
Collins should be on the list with Snow. The Ghastly Sisters gotta go!
The only running Conrad is doing is running scared.
He announced last January that he is bowing out. Chickens-— knew he’d get whipped.
