US Senators better off running in different classes.

Lincoln D-AR better of getting elected to the US Senate in 1996/2002 she would have defeated Tim Hutchinson-R, won re-election in 2008, she would have a better chance of getting re-elected in 2014 than in 2010.
Dole R-NC 2004 instead of 2002, shed win re-election in 2010.
DeWine-R-OH getting elected in 1998 instead of 1994- win re-election in 2004 and 2010.
Santorum R-PA better of tea bagging Specter in 1998. Instead of challenging Wofford in 1994.
Daschle D-SD should have ran against Pressler in 1990 instead of Abnor in 1986. He would have won re-election in 1996,2002-against Thune-R,2008,and 2014-Noem. Johnson defeats Abnor in 1998, survives a tough race against Thune-R in 2004, Survive a tough race against Rounds in 2010

1. You make a good point

 

Though it is two years later, Ashley Judd would easily defeat Rand Paul
I don't know without the right financing, if she can beat mitch in the end.
Very hard to defeat someone like Mitch, UNLESS there is a 3rd party tea party person also running(so there are 3 candidates, two from the right).

I would like to see Ashley, should she not defeat mitch, pick up and immediately run for the other seat.

(Of course I would love if she defeated Mitch, but it won't be easy.)

(And it is quite possible Rand won't run for reelection anyhow, if he runs for President,
especially if he makes an independent run in 2016 as is being whispered.)
(which would mean in 2016, he will be our Ralph Nader).

2. Mitch losing to a sacrificial lamb Democratic challenger like Ashley Judd makes it easier for

Democrats in KY like Yarmuth or Grimes to go after Paul.

Defeating Mitch sends a message that the National Republican Brand is unpopular than the state of KY.
