Republican US Senate recruit for 2020-
AL(Jones-D)Sessions-R
MI(Peters-D)James-R can make the race against Peters-D competitive but will still lose.
The rest of the Democratic held US Senate seats up for re-election in 2020 will remain in the Democratic column.
Democratic US Senate recruit for 2020-
AZ special(McSally-R)Kelly-D
CO(Gardner-R)Hickenlooper-D
GA regular(Perdue-R)Tomlinson-D
GA special(Loeffler-R)Warnock-D

MT(Daines-R)Collins-D
NC(Tillis-R)Cunningham-D
SC(Graham-R)Harrison-D

1. So that means

a net gain of 3, meaning a 50-50 tie if your projections are correct. Meaning a Republican Senate until January 20th (with Pence) and up in the air depending upon who wins the White House.

If Sanders or Warren (or both, one as VP) win then their seats get filled by Republicans, returning the majority to Republicans. Temporarily, I hope, in the case of Massachusetts as the Kerry Law would require a quick special election.

Klobuchar winning would mean a Democrat filling the seat, and passing control to the Democrats.

Is it feasible for us to flip any of the others? I don't like the idea of a Republican governor stealing control back from us.

2. Winning both of the GA US Senate Elections is key to Democrats regaining control of the US Senate.

Democrats will win all of the Democratic held US Senate up for re-election in 2020 except AL(Jones-D loses to the likely Republican Nominee.) If Sander(VT) and/or Warren(MA) get the job at 1600 PA avenue, Democrats will start with 44 US Senate seats.
Democrats will need to win 7 Vulnerable Republican held US Senate seats up for re-election in 2020.
1)CO(Hickenlooper-D)45
2)AZ special(Kelly-D)46
3)NC(Cunningham-D)47
4)ME(Gideon-D)48
5)GA regular(Tomlinson-D)49
6)GA special(Warnock-D)50
7)IA(Greenfield-D)51
