2018 US Senate Election-Best case and Worse case scenario for Democrats.

Best case scenario for Democrats in the 2018 US Senate Election cycle is holding onto MO (McCaskill-D),IN (Donnelly-D),ND (Heitkamp-D),MT (Tester-D),and OH (Brown-D) and picking up NV (Rosen-D) and AZ (Chris Russell-D)-wins the Democratic primary if Mark Kelly,Kyrsten Sinema,Ann Kirkpatrick,and Randy Friese-D don't run. Chris Russell (D-AZ) wins the November General Election definitely against Ward-R and possibly against Flake-R.
Worse case scenario for Democrats in the 2018 US Senate Election cycle is losing MO,IN,and ND.
Democrats guide to regaining control of the US Senate will occur in 2020.
If in 2018-Democrats hold onto IN,MO,MT,ND,and OH and pick up AZ and NV.
Democrats need to pick up ME (if Collins-R is elected Governor in 2018 or retires in 2020 and Michaud-D runs),CO or NC.
If in 2018-Democrats lose IN,MO,and ND
Democrats need to pick up ME(if Collins-R retires),CO,NC,IA (if Tom or Christie Vilsack-D runs),GA (if John Barrow-D runs) and MT (if Bullock-D runs)
