1. Thanks for the message from

 

Samantha Bee, betsuni.

We do need the Senate and all 3 Branches of Gov for real Progress out of the abyss.

5. Many of them already are in the Senate:

 

Warren, Harris, Klobucher, Sanders, etc.

How many are there who are NOT already in the Senate, and whose states don't already have Democratic Senators?

Also Senate terms are 6 years, so most Senate seats won't be up in 2020.

I do agree, however, that if there non-Senators running whose states have Republican Senators coming up for reelection in 2020, they should consider shifting to run in those races.

Here are the Republican Senators up for reelection in 2020:

Lamar Alexander (R-Tennessee)
Shelley Moore Capito (R-West Virginia)
Bill Cassidy (R-Louisiana)
Susan Collins (R-Maine)
John Cornyn (R-Texas)
Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas)
Steve Daines (R-Montana)
Mike Enzi (R-Wyoming)
Joni Ernst (R-Iowa)
Cory Gardner (R-Colorado)
Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina)
Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Mississippi)
James Inhofe (R-Oklahoma)
Jon Kyl (R-Arizona) -- It is expected that there will be an open special election in 2020 for the seat because Kyl has said he will not run in 2020. A full six-year term election will take place in 2022.
Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky)
David Perdue (R-GA)
Jim Risch (R-Idaho)
Pat Roberts (R-Kansas)
Mike Rounds (R-South Dakota)
Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska)
Dan Sullivan (R-Alaska)
Thom Tillis (R-North Carolina)

So which presidential Dem candidates are in states where they could run against these folks?

2. Swalwell could run for Feinstein's seat likely before her term is up.

 

I hope she will think about stepping down.

4. help castrate that one big pig

 

Just running for the Senate will do much to castrate the big pig in the oval office, but if the Senate flips, you can also brag about being part of the national effort to castrate Moscow Mitch. Figuratively, of course.

Run for Senate!
