Posted on 04/06/2019 5:38:41 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
On paper, the Republican hold on the Senate in 2020 appears tenuous at best. With 34 seats being contested, Republicans must defend 22 while Democrats need to protect only 12.
Currently, Republicans hold 53 seats while Democrats possess 45 with two independents caucusing with them. That means Democrats would have to win at least three seats to gain control.
But two things are working against Democrats in their bid to control the Senate. First, only two Republican incumbents are considered to be in trouble: Colorado's Cory Gardner and Arizona's Martha McSally. Georgia's David Perdue's seat is shaky, as is the seat of Maine's Susan Collins. Meanwhile, if Republicans nominate someone in Alabama who hasn't been accused of fondling teenage girls to run against Democrat Doug Jones, they should win in a walk.
Most of the seats being contested in 2020 are in GOP safe states in the South and the Great Plains. That should allow the national party to concentrate resources on races that are at risk.
Perhaps reflecting these realities, a host of prominent state Democrats who might have been tempted to run for the Senate are reluctant to make the move.
Senate Democrats had the opportunity to recruit a murderers row of popular and tested candidates with proven fundraising abilities in a handful of key states up for election next year as they seek a path back to the majority.
But virtually all of those candidates have taken themselves out of the running, either because they see a bigger prize on the horizon, the White House, or because the allure of serving in the worlds greatest deliberative body is no longer what it once was.

They’re also having problems recruiting quality candidates for the Presidential race in 2020.
Oh ,they want Quality ,LOL
Perhaps a number of the Stalinists currently running for President are available.
Oh the accusations will come, whoever it is. There are a lot more creepy lawyers to take CPL's place.
Dems Having Trouble Recruiting Quality Candidates
DEMS and Quality should never be on the same page together.
Why don’t they run Seth Rich?
I think I see a problem created not by their opponents, but by their leadership and financiers.
Weiner is available.
They had that problem in 2018 and 2016 as well.
Look at the Idiots they DO Run.
If they weren’t Dems to start with, That would take care of most of their problem out the gate!
Since when have they been worried about quality?
Well I can understand that. No fun to have to go outside the party to find quality people.
Pat Roberts, R-Kansas is retiring. A Democrat, perhaps the current Governor will run. He/she will lose.
Well, the obvious cause of that is all of their Top Quality candidates are running for President.
GOP will hold CO, GA, and ME. They have an good shot at picking up a couple of seats.
That would take power away from Mitt and any other wobblies who get foolish ideas.
I believe, according to the Mayor of Philadelphia, they are all over qualified.
If that doesn’t sound like someone who really needs help, I have lost my ability to recognize a nut.
There is no such thing as quality in a Socialist DemocRAT. They’re the enemy within, traitors, and anti-American, in my opinion.
so all they’re getting are AOC’s , Omar’s and the other one one’s ,LOL
Colorado’s Cory Gardner and Arizona’s Martha McSally.
These two should be primaried out anyway, they do not side with the citizens and the rule of law.
