2. It might even help pick up Pat Robert's seat in Kansas

since he isn't running and the voters in Kansas are disgusted with the GOP.

I also wouldn't be surprised if Joaquin Castro as the Democratic nominee for Senate in Texas.

3. I don't get how o'rourke gets you anywhere in red states.

I get that it's Texas, but I can't see putting someone on the ticket who hasn't held statewide office.

4. Winning 2020 US Senate Races in AZ,GA,and NC are key to helping Democrats regain control in 2020.

CO(+1D) and AL(-1D) cancel each other out.
O'Rourke-D can win in AZ(Kelly-D), GA(Abrams-D), and NC(Jackson-D).

6. Abrams running might help any Dem presidential candidate

in GA- not likely other way around. Abrams would be the draw.

5. I like them both, but this ticket does not excite me.

It feels almost feels like Biden and Biden Jr.

If Biden wins, and you want to pick up a couple of southern states and excite the base, I think Stacy Abrams can do the trick.

7. No. We need a minority or a woman on the ticket.

Preferably both leading.

8. This is 2019. Two white men won't work. Pair one of these guys with a woman/POC...

and you've got something. Who do you think the base of the party is? That would risk too many staying home. The ticket should reflect who the party is.

9. How about A Biden/Harris Ticket?

An old white male from the East Coast and A young black female from the West Coast.
Can Harris help Biden carry AZ,GA,and NC- States that have battleground US Senate Races in 2020 that Democrats need to win to regain control of the US Senate?
