Senate Races to Watch in November

PolitiChicks.comThe Republicans need to pick up six seats to win the Senate. According to some pollsters, the GOP stands a chance of gaining seven and losing three which leaves a net gain of four—not what we want or need.

Regular elections (33): Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Special elections (3): Hawaii, Oklahoma, and South Carolina.

Libertarian candidates are running in Alaska, Arkansas, Kansas, Michigan, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Virginia. Michigan will most likely be a win for the Democrats.

In North Carolina, some political pundits believe the Libertarian candidate will be a spoiler. According to, “The CNN/ORC Internationalpoll has Sen. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) pulling 46 percent of votes and Republican challenger Thom Tillis 43 percent, with a 4 percent margin of error. However, the poll also has Libertarian candidate Sean Haugh polling at 7 percent of the vote. If this proves to be an accurate prediction of election results, it will undoubtedly lead to Sean Haugh being labelled a ‘spoiler’ by whichever side ends election night with a concession speech.”

After viewing the websites of the various pollsters, I’ve listed the Senate seats that could be potential 7 gains for the Republicans and two gains for the Democrats.
