You think '10 was tough? Check out '12
an article at THE HILL, no less.
In two years, Democrats will have 21 seats up for grabs, compared to only 10 for Republicans. Also, the two "independents" who caucus with the Democrats will be up for reelection (Lieberman and avowed Socialist, Bernie Sanders from Vermont). Of course, says the article, it depends on the mood of the public.
Mood? I'll give them MOOD, where here in Missouri a House seat was stolen by Russ Carnahan (Dem--do I even have to say it) from challenger Ed Martin. Here's the freakin' MOOD of the public: "We're Still Advancing," written by Bill Hennessy at the St. Louis Tea Party Coalition. Go here to read about Russ Carnahan's "Mathematically Impossible Midnight Surge of Votes." The election between Carnahan and Martin is being contested. Stay tuned.
Oh, and here's a special little "Valentine" from Jim Hoft at gatewaypundit for Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) who is up for reelection in 2012.
