2018 US Senate Election- Which US Senate Race will be the MACACA of 2018?

During the 2006 US Senate Election- Democrats had gained 6 seats-PA,OH,RI,MO,MT,and VA. This put Democrats in the majority.
VA-George Allen calling a protester MACACA lead Democrats to win the 2006 VA US Senate Race and regain control of the US Senate.
In 2018- Democrats will hold onto every Democratic held seat up in 2018 and pick up AZ and NV to get to 51 seats.
Democrats could pick up additional seats in TN and TX and if they are special elections in AZ and MS, AZ and MS.
I could see TX or MS - whichever MS seat Presley-D runs for, as the 2018 MACACA US Senate Election.

1. I'm not all that confident about holding Missouri......

The state has turned significantly to the right since '08; only the fact that Todd Akin was a total idjit allowed us to hold the Senate seat in '12. Josh Hawley, with his buttloads of Koch$$, won't be that easy.

3. This is why we need to hope Blackburn-TN and Cruz-TX make series of gaffes on the campaign trail.

We need to hope Bredensen-TN and O'Rourke-TX do an outstanding job exposing their Republican opponents weaknesses.

4. I think Bredesen has a chance. Cruz though???

 

The people in Cruz's district strike me as being the same as the people in AL that were voting for the "R" no matter what. I don't have hopes there.

5. If Beto O'Rourke, Ted Cruz's Democratic opponent in the 2018 TX US Senate Race comes close to

unseating Ted Cruz in 2018 TX US Senate Race (A narrow to high single digit loss), O'Rourke should seek the Democratic Nomination for the 2020 US Presidential Election.
He is charismatic and likeable.
He can turn TX into a battleground state and pick up AZ and FL
In the US House- He serves on the Armed Services and Veterans Affairs.
