2014 Senate

November 18, 2012
By

Here’s a list of states with Republican senators up for re-election in 2014: Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Wyoming.

It’s hard to see Democrats picking up any of those seats, even Maine, where Susan Collins has a moderate record that suits her state.

Meanwhile, here are the most vulnerable Democrats whom Obama is counting on to vote for amnesty, anti-growth, and abortion:

Mark Begich (AK)
Mark Pryor (AR)
Mary Landrieu (LA)
Max Baucus (MT)
Kay Hagan (NC)
Tim Johnson (SD)

Those are just the most vulnerable Democrat senators. There are 20 Democrats up for re-election, compared with 13 Republicans.

Unless Republicans give them cover, those 6 most-vulnerable Democrats should be at least a little reluctant to go along with Obama’s plans to end civilization as we know it. There’s no reason for Republicans to give them cover.

    pretty good pickings the list almost looks better than this year. I’m sure they’ll all be re-elected though, since apparently, the voters like all that commie shit.

    This year should have been the Republicans year … but Senator-not-to-be Akin did away with those hopes.

    There will be at least a half dozen rino traitors willing to sign on
    to amnesty in order to hispander to the “latinos”~~Graham/McCain/collins/rubio/corker/murkowski/ to name a few.

    The GOP simply fucked away the Montana,North Dakota,Missouri and indiana races.
    As for 2014 races,I have a few differences.I don’t think Pryor or Baucus are that vulnerable. Pryor is a fake moderate,but his family are a powerhouse politically in that state. Baucus has been around forever. WHile Montana does vote red in potus elections,it seems to like sending Dems to the senate. Agree with the other choices.
    I would add two of my own. Where is Al Franken? He “won”by 300 votes. Certainly he will have a contested races. Also,look at Jay Rockefeller. Polls have him losing to whoever the GOp nominee is. Rockefeller is a liberal,and unlike his colleague Manchin,has not adjusted to West Virginia becoming one of the reddest states.

    Alaska has a RINO in Murkowski, who is one of the key votes for Obama to seek from the GOP; and the Democrat Begich who is up for reelection. The only way to keep Murkowski from turning or making Begich weak is to start now to build a focus on those two.

    Sarah could finish Begich in a Wasila minute !

      Jay,
      Palin would have a hard time winning any election in most of Alaska. She could probably beat Begich if they both ran in Arizona, but not in Alaska.

    • Bonaparte on November 20, 2012 at 1:44 pm

      Nah her opponent would run commercials of her interviewing former NBA player Glen Rice – the 6 foot 9 coal black dude she slept with. End of Palin.

        Is that envy or racism?
        There are only 700,000 people in Alaska. Very few care if she had happy sex with a black man, or an Alaskan Natvie (after all she married the latter). It is her performance upon which she is judged. It has been a mixed bag. Early she was loved later even some of her strong supporters were shaking their heads.

    Glad u guys are remaining positive regarding the gops chances. I for one am done with the repubs. Almost voted for GJ this time, but ended up voting Romney. Imo until the repubs embrace limited govt and a more libertarian mindset, they will continue to lose elections

    Two years out, but this is the order of vulnerability, weakest to strongest:

    Kay Hagan (NC)
    Mark Pryor (AR)
    Max Baucus (MT)
    Mark Begich (AK)
    Mary Landrieu (LA)
    Tim Johnson (SD)

    Hagan has no rsal accomplishments to her name, and is a bit more lefty than the average NC Dem.
    Pryor has a D by his name in a state that is trending heavily conservative.
    Baucus has a lot of clout, which counts in small population states. We will need a big name to unseat him.
    Begich is pretty protective of AK interests, will also need a decent name to unseat him- (Palin?)
    Landrieu and Johnson both have long experience in winning elections in their respective conservative states.
    What would be interesting, force a vote on ANWR and other areas drilling, see how these losers vote-
    all except Hagan and Pryor are from states with oil interests and reserves.

    Even with the new makeup of the Senate, the votes should be there.

      Regarding the Alaska Senate seat the two most commonly mentioned opponents are Gov. Parnell, and Lt. Gov Mead Treadwell. Before either of them has a good shot, they will need to patch up their differences and draw straws. Begich has a strong hold on the Anchorage vote, so it will take a concerted effort.

  9. Gerry Owen on November 20, 2012 at 12:35 pm

    I like Parnell, don’t know much about Mead. Alaska is a strange bird, politically. I like the libertarian streak that runs through both parties up there.

    • rightwingyahoo on November 20, 2012 at 3:40 pm

      Libertarian streak my ass, Begich voted for Ogabecare.

      • Haverwilde on November 20, 2012 at 4:48 pm

        RW-Yahoo,

        Gerry is correct, there is a libertarian streak in both parties here. Begich isn’t one. He is a hack, statist, failure, who found his niche in politics. He managed to use his base in Anchorage to become senator because the feds indicted Ted Stevens. It was orchestrated and convenient. But Alaskans tend to vote for the incumbents unless a good reason is presented to elect the alternative.
        Parnell and Treadwell could provide that reason, if they work together and there is a force advertising the Begich betrayals.

        Obama can guarantee Begich’s reelection through several means, the easiest is opening ANWAR. But there are others.

        If Alaska becomes a pivot point for Obama power, he will buy it. If it is not terribly important we have a chance.

    stop being so downer

  11. Gerry Owen on November 20, 2012 at 10:40 pm

    Haverwilde-
    That is why I would love to see an ANWR vote again- we haven’t had one in a while, and I would love to hear the dems trot out the “ten years to bring online” bullshit I have heard for 30 YEARS now…
    Point is, you add the Rs and the Ds from states that either rely on oil revenue or have fast growing oil industry,
    Drilling wins. Or Senators are retired. It would require a veto to overturn- but will Obama do so? Would he crater his party’s chances in the red states?
    Interesting play, if we win it, we get jobs throughout the economy. We don’t, we have to wait a couple more until the American populace realizes we actually need money to pay for the free shit they want.

    Would he crater his party’s chances in the red states?~~GO

    The obamunist is a narcissist, and cares little about his party, just himself.

    • Goonions on November 25, 2012 at 6:42 am

      You sir are dead right on that one. He got reelected so now there is loads of room under the bus. Ideology first, party second from here on out.

  13. Eric W. on November 23, 2012 at 4:26 pm

    Jay Rockefeller will be defeated.
