MT, KS, GA, ME, AZ, CO, NC & IA-Sen: Politico, “Dems’ momentum puts Senate majority in play”

2 min read

Politico has a great piece out about how Democrats have gained serious momentum to flip the U.S. Senate:

Republicans started this election cycle as heavy favorites to keep their Senate majority, with a lineup of elections mostly in red-tinted states and GOP incumbents favored over a slate of relatively unknown and untested challengers.

Now, nearly six months out from the election, Democrats are making them sweat.

Republicans are still more likely than not to maintain control, but Democrats strengthened their hand with a slate of challengers raising massive sums of money in races that represent the heart of the battle for the majority, putting control of the Senate within reach. Republicans remain modest favorites to keep the Senate, with incumbents holding cash advantages in most competitive races and several offensive targets potentially cushioning their majority.

But GOP leaders are bracing for a slog. Steven Law, president of the super PAC Senate Leadership Fund and a top ally to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, said in a recent interview there is a sense among donors and allies that it could be a “challenging election from top to bottom.”

“The sense is that, no matter what else happens, we’ve got to hold the Senate majority. And it’s not a given,” Law said. “There’s just a broad front to defend, and it’s going to take a lot of resources and a lot of hard work to do it.”

Give the article a read. They cover races in states. such as Montana, Kansas, Georgia (both the main race and the special election), Maine, Arizona, Colorado, Northa Carolina, and Iowa. Once you’re done reading, please do donate and get involved with these Democratic Senate candidates:
