2017/2018 US Senate Election- Republican held US Senate seats Democrats could win.

2017
AL-if Democratic GOTV and turnout is high-Jones-D has a chance.
2018
AZ
NV
TN-if likely Democratic nominee-James Mackler-D gets DSCC funding. The last time a TN US Senate Race was very close was in 2006. Harold Ford Jr.-D received 48 percent and Bob Corker-R received 51 percent in that race. The 2018 Republican nominee will be a right-wing conservative unlike Alexander-R and Corker-R. Mackler-D has more crossover appeal than Ford-D.

1. If Gov. Haslam decides to run and wins the primary Mackler has no chance.

However, if the Rs nominate an extreme character like Marsha Marsha Marsha Blackburn it would be close. Haslam is a moderate, popular Governor- he is the kind of R Bannon hates.

2. Do you think Haslam-R will win the primary? or Will the Republicans nominate Blackburn?

Mackler(D-TN) is in the same situation as Jones (D-AL)-relying on the Republicans to nominate a right-wing extremist.

5. Haslam is popular. He is not a red meat Governor. Like Corker in that respect.

I think the more extreme the Republican nominee is, the better chance we have.

3. Al-Not a chance it will go Dem; AZ- not a chance it will go Dem; NV goes Dem - but we lose IN

 

As much as I hate to even think it, this is the likely reality. We will likely lose one more seat too.

4. As long as hate radio and the right wing clergy exist, AL will never be blue.

They could nominate Ted Bundy and the Son Of Sam and they would finish higher in Alabama over the best qualified democrats.
