Dem Hopes in the Senate 2006 Part II

An excellent overview of the 7 targeted races Senator Schumer highlighted as key in retaking the Senate over at the Daily Kos...

As a reminder, the States are:

Arizona
Missouri
Montana
Ohio
Pennsylvania
Rhode Island
Tennessee

Dkos poster Rippe writes: "
The big picture is this: 33 of the 100 Senate seats are up for grabs in 2006. 14 of them are Republican-held, 14 are Democrat-held, and 5 are open (additional retirements may change that).

Of course, Republicans hold a 55-44 majority in the Senate, with the one independent (the retiring Jeffords) voting with the Democrats. A Democratic net gain of 6 seats in 2006 would give us a 50-50 split. Of course, Democratic strategists would prefer to net 7 new seats in order to represent a clean Dem majority of 51."

After a good summary of the different races, that really should be read in full, he concludes:

"...Assuming that 14 hours of research and writing buys me the right to have an opinion, here's my take on these 7 races.

EXCELLENT SHOT:

Montana
Ohio
Pennsylvania

GOOD SHOT:

Missouri
Rhode Island

WE'LL NEED TO WORK HARDER:

Arizona
Tennessee"

Here is to a New Years Resolution of helping create a national, distributed, grassroots force fighting to take these states back!
