In the upcoming mid-term elections, Democrats will need to hold off GOP challengers and WIN 3 seats currently held by Republicans in order to take back the United State Senate. This is going to be a sizable challenge but not an impossible one, as only 9 Republican seats are up for re-election in 2018.
Conversely, if Republicans are able to make a net gain of 8 seats, they will achieve a filibuster-proof majority render Democrats powerless and ensure at least four years of Donald Trump’s unchecked reign. There are 25 Democratic and Independent seats up for election. We simply cannot allow that to happen.
Democrats best hope at impeachment, or mitigating more damage by the Trump regime, will need to hold off challengers and net three GOP seats.
The seats to watch: Alabama, Arizona, Mississippi, Nevada, Nebraska, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming.
This is tough terrain for Democrats. The Democratic National Committee just elected it’s new leadership on Saturday, and it’s time to get serious about 2018 midterm races.
