OR - Merkley - elected 2008
RI - Reed
SD - Johnson - retiring
VA - Warner - elected 2008
WV - Rockefeller - retiring
We should be able to pick up every one of those retiring seats.
imagine if we make a sweep of it?
And of the 20, 7 of these states went for Romney in 2012.
***AR - Pryor - elected 2008 ***
The voters gave Blanche Lincoln the heave-ho after she promised to vote against Obamacare, then voted for it.
Pryor is next!
I hope that WE provide a lot of money and volunteer time to their Conservative challengers.
The TEA Party in their states MUST work to get these libs OUT. I will gladly contribute!
And they’re all going to be on record as not voting to provide the same advantages under Obamacare to individual citizens as those given to Congress, the president, and big corporations.......
The democrat running for the Levin seat is trying to play moderate on this Obamacare/shutdown fight. That tells me that he knows he’s already facing a tough election.
Another factor will be Detroit. The state has effectively seized control of the election process in Detroit and other Detroit area cities.
Harkin is retiring? Amazing. He’s only 74. I thought these old Commies stayed on the Senate floor until they died.
My predictions for what it is worth...lol.

We SHOULD be able to EASILY pick up 7 seats. However, we should have picked up seats in 2008 and 2012 and didn’t. Anyhow if things go our way we should have the Senate in 2014.
I’ll take picking up 7 seats! And on top of that replacing McConnell, Graham, Alexander with more solid conservatives and possibly Cornyn, we will have a far more conservative senate!!
Do we actually have any of those in the RINO party anymore??
If Not, Get Them.
