That's why Republicans would continue to kick Democrat ass when it comes to governing any day of the week. Democrats don't know how to use the power and it's why Mitch continues to watch them dead in their face, smile and be a hypocrite. He knows Democrats haven't a clue how to use the power given to them. Pack the courts, give DC and PR statehood with 3 Senators and remove the filibuster. That alone should send Mitch to an early deserved and miserable retirement.Won’t happen with Manchin. He already ruled out packing the courts, and giving statehood to DC has not been mentioned by any of the Dem leaders.
Depends on the environment and the candidates, Rubio (FL), Grassley (Iowa), Johnson (WI), Portman (PA) and Burr (NC) are seats D will be looking to contest.I know it's rare for the incumbent party to gain senate seats in the midterms, but are there any realistic R seats up for grabs in the 2022?
Hmmm, I see. Thanks for that!Depends on the environment and the candidates, Rubio (FL), Grassley (Iowa), Johnson (WI), Portman (PA) and Burr (NC) are seats D will be looking to contest.
On their side, the most vulnerable will be Hassan in NH, Cortez-Masto in NV, Warnock in GA, Kelly in AZ.
It’s not the worst map to play defense, but you are still looking at a D+7 environment at least to not lose any of the seats above. At D+5 it would be dicey, any lower then they likely lose 1-3 seats.
Yes. And Kelly and Sinemma (sp?) and all the barely blues.
50-50, but in case of a tie the VP gets to cast the deciding vote.
50/50 - VP Harris with the tie breaking vote.
Thanks. So we're unlikely to get anything meaningful passed in the next 2 years but hopefully the Democrats aren't stupid enough not to pass 2000$ checks.50 each. VP elect Harris is the tiebreaker.
