Looking Ahead to 2010

Looks like another lopsided election year. In the Senate the Republicans must defend and hold 19 seats while the Democrats need to only work 16. If the conservative movement is going to make a come back we better start looking at our options.
Here is a list of the positions up for grabs.
2010
15 – Dems
19 – Rep
Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby, Republican
Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Republican
Arizona Sen. John McCain, Republican
Arkansas Sen. Blanche Lincoln, Democratic
California Sen. Barbara Boxer, Democratic
Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd, Democratic
Florida Sen. Mel Martinez, Republican
Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson, Republican
Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo, Republican
Hawaii Sen. Dan Inouye, Democratic
Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, Democratic
Indiana Sen. Evan Bayh, Democratic
Iowa Sen. Charles E. Grassley, Republican
Kentucky Sen. Jim Bunning, Republican
Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, Republican
Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski, Democratic
Missouri Sen. Christopher Bond, Republican
Nevada Sen. Harry Reid, Democratic
New Hampshire Sen. Judd Gregg, Republican
New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, Democratic
North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr, Republican
North Dakota Sen. Byron Dorgan, Democratic
Ohio Sen. George Voinovich, Republican
Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden, Democratic
Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter, Republican
South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, Republican
South Dakota Sen. John Thune, Republican
Utah Sen. Bob Bennett, Republican
Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy, Democratic
Washington Sen. Patty Murray, Democratic
Wisconsin Sen. Russ Feingold, Democratic

I highlighted the big races that need to be won. We need to locate encourage and fund a viable candidate in each of these states.

2010 Senate Map May Not Be Much Better for the GOP

If focus and drive is good we can take a strong hold of the Senate but a majority is very slim. Our best hope to take the senate and restore government is 2012. There will be 33 seats up for election, Dem – 24 Rep - 9. It will take a lot of work on our part to hold back the flood gates on government spending and socialization over the next four years. You best prepare yourself for the battle ahead.

Saddly, Osama Mama Murray is likely to win again out here in very solidly blue Washington.

Well, we're actually only blue west of the Cascades and in the immediate area around Spokane but that ditz is still probably secure unless things change greatly out here.

Richard Burr is the Senator from North Carolina - NOT Virginia!

I can't stand Murray. She has received several letters from me. I always get back some nonsense that is directly opposite what I wrote her. Her staff must be idiots too.

Sorry about Burr. After going through the entire list somehow I messed this up. Thanks for helping me stay accurate.
