2006 Senate

The PC Democrats have a lot of opportunities to help Dems take back the US Senate next year.

The most obvious, of course, is Lincoln Chafee's seat. Some hard work and Brown/Whitehouse/Sheeler will be the next Senator from Rhode Island.

Also extremely vulnerable is Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania/Virginia. We have a few people from Pennsylvania... and can I see a road trip on the horizon? Santorum will be challenged by Bob Casey.

Ohioans have a great shot at taking a seat as well. People don't like Mike DeWine, and the GOP is looking very dirty in the midst of a bizarre scandal.

Other vulnerable seats include Conrad Burns (R-MT), Jim Talent (R-MO), John Ensign (R-NV), Jon Kyl (R-AZ), George Allen (R-VA) and the open seat in Tennessee.

There are a few vulnerable Senate seats in Washington, North Dakota, Nebraska, West Virginia, Florida, Maryland and Minnesota. Fortunately, the person in charge of recruiting candidates is a moron (Elizabeth Dole), and no Democrats really have serious challengers. Washington looked scary, but Dino Rossi, the only serious challenger, will not run. And state after state has the best looking Republican challengers looking elsewhere.
