1st. 2018 is not going to end well for them. They have 25 seats up, with 11 vulnerable. Compare that to the Republicans who have only seats up with merely 2 vulnerable.
I knew the Dems. had many more Senate seats up for election in 2018, but didn’t realize so many were vulnerable.
So, for sake of argument, say the Reps and Dems. split the 2 vulnerable Republican seats, and the GOP picks up 6 of the 11 Dem. vulnerable seats. That would be a net gain of 5 for the Republicans in the Senate. Of course, there could be greater gains for the GOP, but hard to see how the Dems. can even hold the line and defend so many seats without some net loss of seats.
And, we should note, that 2018 is an off year election. The Democrats have historically had trouble getting their voters to vote in off year elections.
Poor Dems. are $3 million in debt?? Contributions are way down??? Dem voters aren’t inspired to send money to the Democrats?? Doesn’t Hillary have some left over money she can give them, to prove that she’s a good Democrat, and maybe garner some good will for another expected presidential run of her own in 2020???
Life’s a beach. Net gain 5 is fine, I think we get more but, that screws them 2020...and beyond...
