    2010 was the same class as 2004, when the Republicans did well in the Senate.

    2012 will be an interesting election for the Democrats, as they have 21 up, and the republicans have 12

    A list
    * 3.1 Democratic incumbent elections
    o 3.1.1 Dianne Feinstein of California
    o 3.1.2 Tom Carper of Delaware
    o 3.1.3 Bill Nelson of Florida
    o 3.1.4 Daniel Akaka of Hawaii
    o 3.1.5 Ben Cardin of Maryland
    o 3.1.6 Debbie Stabenow of Michigan
    o 3.1.7 Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota
    o 3.1.8 Claire McCaskill of Missouri
    o 3.1.9 Jon Tester of Montana
    o 3.1.10 Ben Nelson of Nebraska
    o 3.1.11 Bob Menendez of New Jersey
    o 3.1.12 Jeff Bingaman of New Mexico
    o 3.1.13 Kirsten Gillibrand of New York
    o 3.1.14 Kent Conrad of North Dakota
    o 3.1.15 Sherrod Brown of Ohio
    o 3.1.16 Bob Casey, Jr. of Pennsylvania
    o 3.1.17 Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island
    o 3.1.18 Jim Webb of Virginia
    o 3.1.19 Maria Cantwell of Washington
    o 3.1.20 Joe Manchin of West Virginia
    o 3.1.21 Herb Kohl of Wisconsin
    * 3.2 Independent incumbent elections
    o 3.2.1 Joe Lieberman of Connecticut
    o 3.2.2 Bernie Sanders of Vermont
    * 3.3 Republican incumbent elections
    o 3.3.1 Jon Kyl of Arizona
    o 3.3.2 Richard Lugar of Indiana
    o 3.3.3 Olympia Snowe of Maine
    o 3.3.4 Scott Brown of Massachusetts
    o 3.3.5 Roger Wicker of Mississippi
    o 3.3.6 John Ensign of Nevada
    o 3.3.7 Bob Corker of Tennessee
    o 3.3.8 Kay Bailey Hutchison of Texas
    o 3.3.9 Orrin Hatch of Utah
    o 3.3.10 John Barrasso of Wyoming


    How many will they retain? How many will they gain?

    They might get MA back, and they might get CT for sure.
    It looks like most of the D seasts are actually safe, but a couple of the R seats are not.

    It would be nice to have a good size blowout there too, though

    It's way early but I see about 6 to 8 dems and two or three R's that would be sent packing if the election were held today.

    Why in God's name are we discussing the 2012 election two days after the 2010 election?

    You people are obsessed to the point of ridiculousness!!!

    Why don't we list off all the senators that were elected on Tuesday and see who will be reelected in 2016???

    Thanks, for the reminder. I forgot about 2012 and the end. That could explain the never ending spending.
