Another reason for Ossoff loss-He looks like a college student.

Handel is a fixture in GA Politics.

June 21, 2017

Handel-R wins GA-6 special by 52-47. Could Ossoff win a rematch in November 2018 when Democratic

turnout will be Higher?
Democrats could also pick up SC-5

2018 UT US Senate Election-Could Orrin Hatch-R lose in a general election to a Jim Matheson-D?

If Orrin Hatch-R decides to retire or loses in a Republican primary, could Jim Matheson defeat the Likely Republican Nominee?
UT could be the 4th Republican held US Senate seat Democrats pick up in 2018
1)NV-Jacky Rosen-D
2)AZ (if Flake-R loses in the Republican Primary)-Randy Friese-D
3)TX-Beto O'Rourke-D
4)UT-James Matheson-D
Democrats will have 52 seats. They could afford to lose only 1 seat (Donnelly-IN,McCaskill-MO,Tester-MT,Heitkamp-ND,or Brown-OH) and be able to regain control of the US Senate.

Will Dianne Feinstein be able to leave office in Jan 2025 at the age 91 when her 5th term expires?

If Feinstein-D is unable to serve out her term, will there be a special election in 2022 or If Feinstein-D is forced to leave office in 2023/2024-which Democrat is likely to get appointed to that seat?

Barbara Boxer is a hero for giving America the nation's first black female President or VP

Boxer made a right decision to retire in 2016 and let Kamala Harris replace her. Had Boxer ran again, Harris would have had to challenge Feinstein in the Democratic primary in 2018. Now that Harris is in the US Senate, she can challenge Trump in 2020 or be the Democratic Vice Presidential nominee in 2020.

2018 NV US Senate Election-Jacky Rosen-D

Jacky Rosen has announced she is challenging Dean Heller next year. Will there be any more Democratic candidates or has the NV Democratic Party establishment headed by Harry or Rory Reid and Catherine Cortez Mastro coalesced behind Rosen?
Jacky Rosen is an excellent candidate to unseat Heller. Democrats now need a candidate for Rosen's NV-3 US House seat.
Ross Miller or Kate Marshall are probably gonna be running for Governor.
