It’s hard to watch a news program that doesn’t have talking heads prattling on about the upcoming presidential election. There is another important story that is virtually being ignored. The Senate is definitely up for grabs.
The best way to look forward is to look backward six years. The big story in 2014 was the large number of Democrats that were swept in with Barack Obama in 2008. You may recall the huge Republican win in 2010. That means there are a lot more Republicans up for reelection. Seats are held by the GOP in blue or purple seats include Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. They have a chance to pick up seats Colorado and Nevada.
It is way too early to make any projections but there is a real chance Republicans could win the White House but lose the Senate.
