well, no kidding.

State senate districts are all gerrymandered to hell so that most state senators are safe. Its obviously not possible to gerrymander the senate, and we have a ton of competitive states.

Your fears are completely unfounded. A senator who flees the senate in any but a dark blue or red state is dead.
