    I don’t like podcasts but am sharing this for those who do.

    One year out from Election Day 2020 and Senate Republicans and House Democrats find themselves in parallel universes. The GOP is on defense in Senate races, where more Republicans are on the ballot, and it’s the opposite in the House, where many Democrats who won in hostile territory last year find themselves in tough races. CQ Roll Call’s campaign team, Simone Pathé, Bridget Bowman and Stephanie Akin, run through the 10 most vulnerable members of both the House and Senate.

    Show notes:

    The 10 most vulnerable senators in 2020: Republicans play defense

    The 10 most vulnerable House members in 2020: Democrats dominate

    The podcast is @ The most vulnerable 2020 House and Senate incumbents, explained

    Here are the 10 Senators

    1. Sen. Doug Jones, D-Ala – leans Republicans

    2. Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo – toss-up

    3. Sen. Martha McSally, R-Ariz – Toss-up (Remember, she was appointed to replace McCain)

    4. Sen. Thom Tillis, R-NC – Toss-up

    5. Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine – Tilts Republican (Will her Kavanaugh vote go against her?)

    6. Sen. Gary Peters, D-Mich – Likely Democratic -

    7. Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa – leans Republican

    8. Sen. David Perdue, R-GA – likely Republican\

    9. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-NH – likely Democratic (Will she ride Bernie’s coattails?)

    10. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas – likely Republican\

    The following states will have vacancies to fill:

    Georgia – Likely R

    Kansas – likely R

    New Mexico – likely D

    Tennessee – likely R

    Wyoming – Safe R

    There are 5 toss-up states. We will see major pushes for them.

    Be interesting to watch McSally go up against Gabby Gifford’s husband and astronaut Kelly in Arizona

    Another example of urban versus rural voters. The city folk don't care about 2d Amendment issues while the country folk do.

    The only hope is that, like the current elections going on today, the impeachment farce will draw a lot of Dims to vote for GOP candidates.
