5 States where GOP might pull another Brown

Here are five states where Republicans might take a Senate seat from the Democrats this fall, in order of most to least likely to go GOP:

Arkansas. Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D) of Arkansas is the most endangered Senate incumbent of either party. John McCain won big here in 2008 and Senator Lincoln’s job approval rating has been trending down – a Mason-Dixon survey released this week found that fewer than 40 percent of Arkansas voters have a favorable impression of her. Former GOP state Sen. Gilbert Baker might constitute a tough, Brown-like opponent.

Nevada. Sen. Harry Reid (D) of Nevada should be unbeatable. He was elected to the Senate in 1986 and has won reelection three times since. But the state’s tourism-dependent economy is in the tank. As majority leader, Senator Reid is vulnerable to charges that he is neglecting constituents. Earlier this month, a Mason-Dixon poll found that 52 percent of respondents viewed Reid unfavorably. In the survey, Reid trailed three possible GOP foes, including former University of Nevada-Las Vegas basketball player Danny Tarkanian.

Pennsylvania. Five-term Sen. Arlen Specter (D) of Pennsylvania was welcomed with open arms by Democrats when he announced last April that he was switching parties. Senator Specter’s got lots of cash on hand and is girding for an expected race against Republican and former Rep. Pat Toomey, who almost toppled him in the primary in 2004. But the party-switch might not save Specter’s seat: he hasn’t gained as much among Democratic voters as he has lost among those who lean Republican.

Colorado. Sen. Michael Bennet (D) of Colorado is an incumbent who was appointed to the office after Ken Salazar resigned his senate seat to become secretary of the Interior. Senator Bennett is an electoral neophyte; his reelection bid will be his first actual run for office. Right now his approval ratings are mediocre and he is likely to draw a strong challenge in the primary. If he wins that, he might face former GOP Lt. Gov. Jane Norton in the fall.

Delaware. In Delaware, Joe Biden’s old seat is up for grabs this fall. The question is, will the vice president’s son, the state's Democratic Attorney General Beau Biden, try to win it back for his family? Given what happened to Democratic Attorney General Martha Coakley in Massachusetts, some experts now think Beau Biden might opt to stay where he is. After all, the likely GOP candidate, US Rep. Michael Castle, is formidable. He’s a nine-term congressman, former governor, and moderate who’s been a pillar of Delaware politics for a generation.

Bonus Extra. Unlike the five states listed above, North Dakota has a seat in play this fall that is almost certain to switch sides. Three-term incumbent Sen. Byron Dorgan (D) is retiring, and this rural, heavily Republican state is likely to elect a GOP senator to replace him.

I wish the RNSC would endorse a different Repub beside Roy Blunt, I think he will win though and keep Kit Bond's seat in the red.

And the sad reality is that even if all 6 of the seats mentioned move over into the Republican column, the democrats will still control the place.

I am hoping someone can unseat Boxer. I don't think Chuck Devore has the capital to do it. Boxer has around 10 mil while Devore has raised about 3/4 of a mil.

Carly Fiorina has the capital but I fear her policy beliefs aren't quite in line with mine. It would probably be an improvement over Boxer though.

There is a small possibility that Feinstein may chase Arnolds slot at Gov.

You don't get it do you? This is a different kind of R. A real Republican. So it's like a new kind of R replacing an R. The kind we need, but which you hate.
It's gonna be a history-making moment too. Just like the Brown election. ( who is a RINO )

The damage they can do will be greatly hampered though.

They are so far behind where they thought they would be at this point. They wanted Healthcare and Environmental legislation in the bag going into mid-terms. But truthfully, I'm more worried about Republicans caving than I am in anything Democrats do at this point. But the beauty is that Nelson put his neck out there in the deal-making business and is getting slaughtered at home (and across the states) because of it.

In fact, I'm beginning to think that Obama might be the greatest president of all time. I mean, I've always said that it's a great man who can step into the Whitehouse and grind the gears of government to a stop. I thought that the man would have to be advocating for less government in order to get it done. Go figure.

Yeah, I get it. You either didn't pay attention or didn't understand what the thread was about.

I'm thinking that McInnis has a better shot than Norton in CO but they are both ahead of Bennett in the current polls out here. The Reps would still need about 3 more upsets though to get the majority back to be able to stop a stacking of the SC with lib judges though.

You're projecting again....you do the same thing OFTEN.

It's making an origination. That's allowed unless one is anal retentively literal. Allow some fluidity. ( Or do you feel THAT compelled to control the message?) It still fits in this thread because more real Republicans are needed and this will be historic.


IOWs you got nothin.

Unfortunately the NeoCons are coming back too.

Brown feels everyone should have HC too. He voted for RomneyCare and voted for a lot of spending as a state senator in Mass. Now, he's good for stopping this bill and it the best you can get out of Mass but I wouldn't clamor for another Brown in other state's. Gotta still keep our eyes on what kind of Rs get voted in.

You're a disgrace to the many good ideas that have influenced you.

Hey, you're the one who was looking for a fight. Especially when the truth hits. And there you go projecting again. Same could be said about you.
