What do the states Arizona, Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Montana, North Carolina, and South Carolina have in common?
These are all states that will field competitive Democratic Senatorial Candidates in the 2020 elections.
Maine Speaker Sara Gideon is running against Susan Collins in Maine.
Colonel Amy McGrath is looking to vanquish Mitch McConnell in Kentucky as the likely Democratic Party Senate Nominee.
Captain Mark Kelly is competing well against Martha McSally in Arizona.
Former Governor John Hickenlooper is favored to run against Cory Gardner in Colorado.
Montana Governor Steve Bullock has decided to run against Steve Daines for the Senate seat he holds.
South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Jaime Harrison is looking to defeat Lindsey Graham.
Democrats also have their preferred candidate in North Carolina (Cal Cunningham) and probably in Texas (MJ Hegar.)
Georgia has two seats that Democrats will be competing for.
Iowa still needs to hold its primary to determine who will be the Democratic Senate Candidate.
It is a pity the Democrats will not be fielding a candidate to go up against lunatic Todd Cotton in Arkansas.
If the above candidates and the three incumbent Democrat Senators on the bubble can hold on to their seats in Alabama (Doug Jones,) Michigan (Gary Peters,) and New Hampshire (Jeanne Shaheen) and defeat the fringe candidates the Republicans put up against them, the Democrats may win more than the three necessary contests to gain the Senate majority with the Democratic Presidential Nominee’s victory.
That is Enemy of the People-Political Prince of Darkness Mitch McConnell’s worst nightmare. If he is not defeated by McGrath in Kentucky, he would become the Minority Leader and his reign of obstructionism and reactionary judicial recruitment would undoubtedly end.
It is important for the people to take these races (and all the other contests) just as seriously as the Presidential one.
It is vital that the Democrats back the Presidential Candidate that they think has the longer coattails in bringing these Senate Democrats contestants across the finish line with them.
It is crucial that the citizens learn from the McConnell years and enact rules and procedures, if the Democrats prevail in November, to prevent that nightmare from ever occurring again.
