The Dichotomy That May Get Republicans 60+ Seats in the Senate After 2018 Elections

We truly have a weird dichotomy happening in the 2018 Senatorial Elections. Here is some information pertaining to who is up for reelection in 2018. Please keep in mind that this dichotomy is tremendously in OUR favor.

Thirty-four of the 100 Senate seats are up for reelection. The winners of those seats will serve a six-year term from January 3, 2019, until January 3, 2025.

The Republicans will be defending just 9 seats, while the Democrats will be fighting for 23 — plus another 2 held by independents who caucus with Democrats.

There was a special election on February 9 following Jeff Sessions’ swearing in as U.S. attorney general: The attorney general of Alabama replaced him with Luther Strange (R), Current age: 63 (Mr. Strange will serve until the 2018 elections.)

Democrats are expected to target the Senate seats in Nevada, Arizona, and Texas. The ONLY state we may lose is NV! We will win TX and AZ. The question for both of those states is who will be the Republican nominee. At the end of the day I believe it will be Ted Cruz in TX and Jeff DeWit. Both will win against the Democrat in November 2018.

From the article linked above:

Q: If the candidates in the 2018 Republican Primary Election for United States Senate were Jeff Flake and Jeff DeWit, for whom would you vote?

Jeff Flake: 33%
Jeff DeWit: 42%
Undecided: 25%

Republicans are expected to target Democratic-held seats in Indiana, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, West Virginia, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan, all of which voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election (identified below with **). Republicans will also likely target seats in Virginia, Maine, and New Jersey.
