Daniel…..The Midterms 2010: THE SENATE……

Hello Dog Readers!

Welcome to my Installment “The Midterms 2010 THE SENATE”

Like the House…. I’ll update this throughout the next months.

After accessing our Chances for the House this year lets go to the Senate.

Here are the Seats we’re most likely to win in November (Chronologically after

Indiana (Poll Closing 6pm ET & 7pm ET)

Delaware (Poll Closing 8pm ET)

Arkansas (Poll Closing 8.30pm ET)

North Dakota (Poll Closing 10pm ET)

Those 4 Seats we should easily pick up. That would bring the Democratic Majority down to 55 Seats.

Then it gets iffy:

I hope we’ll win 2 out 4 of these Seats:

Illinois (Poll Closing 8pm ET)

Pennsylvania (Poll Closing 8pm ET)

Colorado (Poll Closing 9pm ET)

Nevada (Poll Closing 10pm ET)

If we win 2 out of 4…… the Democratic Majority would be reduced to 53. That for me would be a reasonable Success on Election Night.

Wild Card

California (Poll Closing 11pm ET)

This Race will determine how big the Wave really is.

The Uncertain Things:

Wisconsin (Poll Closing 8pm ET)

My hunch is that Thompson will announce something next week one way or the other.

Washington (Poll Closing 11pm ET)

IF Rossi announces something it’ll be close to the Filling Deadline so we’ll have to wait at least 3 more months…..

I would think.

  1. I hope Thompson runs.

    james,

    Even if I haven’t met you I like you personlly. You seem to be very ok.

    The only thing I don’t like is that you’re a RUBBERSTAMP for the President. You’re AGEEING on EVERY ISSUE with him.

    • Then tell me: Why would Thompson resign a Spot on a Health Care Board?

      From what I’m hearing his Family has already given him “Green Light”.

      It’s all about his Businesses now. If they give their ok to support him and raise money for him he’s IN.

    And Halter kept it for himself for one full week.

    Over a possible Senor run

    • D’Amato pushed Senor out. He also trying it with Pataki. Read the Politico Article from a couple of Days ago.

      I’d love to hold a GUN at D’Amato for his STUPIDY.

  15. I hate Politicians like D’Amato who only looking at themselves. Way too SELFISH. D’Amato should think about his Party and not Kirsten.

  16. He has a Cuomo connection doesn’t he?

    Comment by jamesb101 | April 3, 2010 | Reply

  17. Blakeman is a Long Islander…who lives not too far from D.Amato if he’s still on the Island…….

  20. James B, I’ve got the Democrats holding the Senate by a 55-45 margin at best in November, with Republicans picking up Delaware, Indiana, Arkansas, and North Dakota.

    Democrats still have a good shot at Missouri, Ohio and maybe New Hampshire (depends if Lynch will have coattails like he did in 2008).
