5. Interesting question.

The Senator who is NOT up for reelection in '16 works well with Sanders. For example:

My other Senator, who IS running, has worked with Bernie at times, and opposed him at times. I think he's going to have a fight on his hands next November; his support for the TPP has pissed off some of his base, including me. If he doesn't regain that lost ground, he might be in trouble. He did recently join Sanders and Merkley for this, though:

My House Rep? I believe he's the only Republican Rep from my state. He's always safe...but this time, he's getting attacked by a conservative group who says he's a "conservative pretender," lol. If they swing some support away from him, and the Democrat can get some of the crossover votes that gave this region to Obama in '08, we've got a chance.
