7. It's not far fetched, it's mathmatically impossible to get to 67 seats in the Senate this election cycle

Sorry to be a downer, but the math is thus:

Republicans only have 10 senators up for reelection this cycle, if we hold every D and I seat AND take every R seat, we can't get to 67.

Here is wiki's break down. Senate class 1 is on the ballot this fall. Note, not just the number of Senators, but look at the break down of how secure a given seat is. Rick Scott at R+3 and Ted Cruz at R+5. Everyone else is R+ double digits. Look at how many seats we have to defend and how close the margins are. Sherrod Brown, here in OH, is running in an R+6 state. We are vulnerable in the Senate this year. IF we hold it, it will be because of Roe.
