It is looking like they can surely pick up two seats, Maryland's popular former Governor Larry Hogan is a good shot to win, and current Governor of W. Virginia, Jim Justice, is a lock to take Manchin's seat. They have also learned the lessons of getting around Trump lackey's like Herschel Walker and the carpetbagging T.V. doctor.

There are 8 Senate seats that Democrats will be defending, and Republicans have a decent chance in all of them. Let's take a look at some of them:




Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told Politico last week that Maryland, along with West Virginia, Ohio and Montana — the three reddest Senate battleground states — are his pickup priorities.

Democrats insist that Senate Republicans shouldn’t start measuring the drapes. They argue that Republicans’ handpicked candidates in key races in Pennsylvania, Montana, Wisconsin and Nevada are deeply flawed — and that Donald Trump-backed candidates in Ohio and Arizona have major red flags.

In Ohio, questions have arisen about Republican candidate Bernie Moreno’s background, including his family’s rags-to-riches story as Colombian immigrants.

  • The New York Times reported over the weekend that his parents were prominent, wealthy Colombians who came to the United States to help their children learn English and experience something new.
  • The Associated Press wrote that Moreno, who has boasted of his success as the owner of a car dealership, is asking donors to retire debts incurred during his campaign.
In Montana, first-time Republican candidate Tim Sheehy said he lied to a national park ranger about a gunshot wound in Glacier National Park in 2015, our colleague Liz Goodwin scooped a few weeks ago. He said he lied about the injury because he didn’t want his former platoon mates in Afghanistan to be investigated.

In Wisconsin, Republican Eric Hovde, a bank CEO, who grew up in the state but has lived in Washington, D.C., and California, is being labeled by Democrats as a carpetbagger for moving to Wisconsin to run for office. He has come under fire for questioning whether nursing home residents should vote.

In Pennsylvania, Republican Dave McCormick, has been criticized for not living in Pennsylvania and for investing in the Chinese defense industry while he ran a large hedge fun, Bridgewater Associates.

In Nevada, likely Republican nominee Sam Brown is facing attacks as a carpetbagger, having run for the Texas state legislature in 2014. Democrats are highlighting his comments from 2022 when he said Nevada should open Yucca Mountain to be a nuclear waste storage sight — a deeply unpopular view in Nevada.




 
Justice is a real sleaze. Republicans would win the seat no matter who they ran and they pick a guy that has screwed everyone he has ever crossed paths with over.

He doesn't pay anyone what he owes them and then brags about how rich he is.

He will fit right in.

Yep, talk about someone just a perfect for WV. Nobody can say that he's not one of them. ;)

Oh well it's better than the dem slags they have been voting for.

Do you remember when some celebrity trashed W. Va. and he came into work with his bulldog and held its ass up to a camera in his response to her?

W. Va,... :laugh:

RealClearPolitics shows Republicans with 49 seats, democrats 42, and 9 being tossups. I haven't looked at the nuts and bolts of it but I find it hard to believe that democrats would win 8 out of the 9 tossups.
 
Democrats have more seats to lose and they know it. Bye bye to Schumer and the rest of his kind.

I think Hogan is Fool's Gold, but at minimum, he'll force the Democrats to pour millions into a race they otherwise could have ignored.
