2018 US Senate Election-If Democrats contest every Republican held US Senate seat.

AZ (Flake-R) Mark Kelly-D
MS (Wicker-R) Ray Mabus-D
NE (Fischer-R) Brad Ashford-D
NV (Heller-R) Jacky Rosen-D
TN (Corker-R) Andy Berke-D
TX (Cruz-R) Beto O'Rourke-D
UT (Hatch-R) Jim Matheson-D
WY (Barrasso-R) Dave Freudenthal-D
Kelly (D-AZ) and Rosen (D-NV) have a greater than 50 percent chance of defeating the Republican incumbents- Flake (R-AZ) and Heller (R-NV).
O'Rourke (D-TX),Matheson (D-UT) and Freudenthal (D-WY) could defeat the Republican incumbents- Cruz (R-TX),Hatch (R-UT) and Barrasso(R-WY) if there is a strong Democratic wave or a strong conservative Independent/Third Party candidate running in the November General Election.
Mabus (D-MS),Ashford (D-NE) and Berke (D-TN) could get elected if the Republican incumbents Wicker (R-MS),Fischer (R-NE) and Corker (R-TN) lose in the Republican primary.
Democrats contesting and winning all of those states could help vulnerable Democratic incumbents win re-election.
FL (Nelson-D)if Scott-R runs.
IN (Donnelly-D)
MI (Stabenow-D)if Snyder-R runs.
MO (McCaskill-D)
MT (Tester-D)
ND (Heitkamp-D)
OH (Brown-D)
Democrats could end up with 56 US Senate Seats in 2019 if Democrats hold onto every Democratic held seat and pick up every Republican held seat in 2018.
Democrats could end up with 60 US Senate Seats in 2021 if in 2020- Democrats unseat Republican incumbents in
CO (Gardner-R)
GA (Perdue-R)
IA (Ernst-R)
NC (Tillis-R)
Democrats could also pick up
ME -if Collins-R retires or loses in the Republican primary.
