2006 vs 2018 US Senate Election Cycle- Which US Senate Race is the Macaca of 2018?

In the 2006 US Senate Election cycle Democrats needed a net gain of 6 seats to get in the majority. They held onto every Democratic held seat up in 2006 and picked up PA,OH,RI,MO,MT,and VA. The VA US Senate seat was won due to incumbent Republican George Allen making the Macaca gaffe.
In the 2018 US Senate Election cycle Democrats need a net gain of 2 seats to get in the majority. Democrats have an easy chance of picking up 3 Republican held US Senate seats in 2018. AZ,NV,and TN(Bredesen-D 2018 performance will better than Ford-D 2006 performance). On the other hand Democratic incumbents in strong Trump states IN(Donnelly-D) and ND(Heitkamp-D) could narrowly lose barring a gaffe by the Republican challenger. Democrats have a net gain of 1 seat. Democrats will need to win TX(Cruz-R could the George Allen of 2018).
