The party balance for the Senate now stands at 51-49 in favor of the Democrats (including Independent Bernie Sanders (Vt.) and Independent Democrat Joe Lieberman, who caucus with the Democrats). The Democrats need 51 seats to control the Senate because the Vice President of the United States, Republican Dick Cheney, would break a 50-50 tie in favor of the Republicans. A notable fact about the 2006 Senate elections is that they were the first since 1986 where the chamber changed hands in midterm occurring during the president's second term.

Missouri

 Claire McCaskill receives a concession phone call from Senator Jim Talent at a victory party in St. Louis, Missouri. McCaskill noted in her victory speech that "Missouri wanted change" and vowed to follow the model of Harry Truman, who once held the same Senate seat before being elected Vice President of the United States.

McCaskill noted in her victory speech that "Missouri wanted change" and vowed to follow the model of Harry Truman, who once held the same Senate seat before being elected Vice President of the United States.

Senator Jim Talent of Missouri, who was narrowly elected in a 2002 special election for the remaining four years of one term, faced a strong Democratic challenge for his seat. Missouri did not hold an election for governor in 2006, making this the only major statewide race in a traditional battleground state. Talent faced state Auditor Claire McCaskill, a former Jackson County Prosecutor and the 2004 Democratic gubernatorial nominee.

McCaskill carried some political baggage from her 2004 loss; however, Talent was elected to the Senate after a near-successful gubernatorial bid, the same position McCaskill was in for the 2006 election. McCaskill went out of her way to appeal to rural voters, who had largely favored her opponent in the gubernatorial race. She also benefited from talking up her support of embryonic stem cell research, which most Missourians supported but which Talent opposed. A related constitutional amendment was also on the ballot and narrowly passed. Human embryonic stem cell colony. ... Missouri Constitutional Amendment 2 is an initiative that concerns stem cell research and human cloning [1]. It appears on the ballot for the November 2006 general election. ...


The race was among the most competitive in the nation. McCaskill and Talent exchanged small leads in various polls throughout the campaign. In the end, McCaskill defeated Talent 50%-47%.


Montana

 Jon Tester defeated Senator Conrad Burns by a razor-thin margin.
Jon Tester defeated Senator Conrad Burns by a razor-thin margin.

Senator Conrad Burns of Montana faced a strong challenge from current Governor Brian Schweitzer in 2000, being re-elected by a mere 3% in a state that went for Bush twice by margins of over 20%. This, combined with the increasing strength of the state Democratic party and accusations of ethical issues related to the Jack Abramoff influence-peddling scandal, made this a highly competitive race. Burns faced Democratic primary winner and state Senate President Jon Tester, an organic farmer from Big Sandy. The 2006 U.S. Senate Election for the state of Montana was held November 7, 2006. ...

Burns has long had a history of verbal missteps, and 2006 was no exception. On July 27, he was forced to apologize after he verbally attacked out-of-state firefighters who were preparing to leave Montana after helping contain a summer forest fire and directly questioned their competence and skill; Burns was strongly criticized.[1] July 27 is the 208th day (209th in leap years) of the year in the Gregorian Calendar, with 157 days remaining. ...


For much of the campaign, Tester led by substantial margins. Burns narrowed the gap by attacking Tester as a liberal extremist. A November 2nd Mason-Dixon poll had Tester and Burns tied at 47% with 5% undecided.[2] A November 4th Rasmussen Reports poll had Tester leading Burns 50% to 48%.[3]


Shortly before noon Mountain time November 8th, Tester was declared the victor by a slim margin, 198,032 votes to 194,904.[4]

Sherrod Brown, center, and his wife, Pulitzer Prize winner Connie Schultz, left, meet with reporters on election night in Cleveland, Ohio. Brown defeated Senator Mike DeWine by a wide margin.

Senator Mike DeWine of Ohio had uninspiring approval ratings and the current Coingate scandal involving the Ohio Republican Party and the widespread unpopularity of Governor Bob Taft were thought to be hurting his re-election chances months before the election. DeWine faced primary challenges from several more conservative Republicans, such as William G. Pierce, who were unhappy with his relatively centrist stances including his role as one of the Gang of 14 who intervened to stop a showdown over judicial nominations. Lawyer and Iraq War veteran Paul Hackett, who narrowly lost to Jean Schmidt in Ohio's second congressional district on August 2, 2005, said in October 2005 he would seek the Democratic nomination to challenge DeWine. U.S. Rep. Sherrod Brown announced his candidacy in October 2005. Hackett withdrew from the race on February 14, 2006. Both DeWine and Brown won their primaries easily. An October 12th Rasmussen Reports poll had Brown leading DeWine 46% to 41%.[5] An October 30th Reuters/Zogby poll had Brown leading DeWine 49% to 42%.[6] A Rasmussen poll released November 4th showed Brown pulling away from Dewine with a 53% to 41% lead.[7] The Ohio Senate election of 2006 will be held on November 7, 2006. ...

Pennsylvania

 Bob Casey rouses his supporters in Scranton, Pennsylvania by declaring his victory over Senator Rick Santorum, an ultraconservative who lost by an 18% margin, one of the largest swings against an incumbent in Senatorial election history. Casey vowed to find solutions and work hard to resolve international crises.

Casey vowed to find solutions and work hard to resolve international crises.

Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, then the third-highest ranking member of the Republican caucus, was the Democrats' top target in 2006. He was a very conservative member of the Senate in a state that last voted for a Republican presidential nominee in 1988. In his last election in the year 2000, Santorum received 7,706 more votes than Al Gore, the Democratic candidate for President, who won Pennsylvania by 4.5 percent.[9] That year, Santorum ran against U.S. Rep. Ron Klink, a pro-life Democrat who wasn't supported by party contributors and was heavily outspent. Democrats believed that Santorum's seat was extremely vulnerable and made it a priority for a pick-up in 2006. Popular pro-life State Treasurer Bob Casey, Jr. was the Democratic nominee and was fully supported by the party establishment. The Pennsylvania Senate election of 2006 was held on November 7, 2006. ... Image File history File links CASEYWIN.jpg‎ This image is a screenshot of a copyrighted television program or station ID.

Santorum did not benefit from his recent controversial book, It Takes a Family, in which he criticized public schools and questioned whether or not both parents in a family should work, alleging that women who work are making a selfish decision and only do so because they find it "empowering". These stances were seized on by the Casey campaign as proof that Santorum was too conservative for Pennsylvania voters.

Polls conducted in the final closing days of the campaign showed Casey leading 52%-39% and 48%-40%, meaning that the Democrat had performed much better than what the polls showed.

Senator Lincoln Chafee of Rhode Island, a liberal Republican, faced a primary challenge from conservative Cranston Mayor Steve Laffey.

The Republican primary was contentious. Laffey ran as a conservative, but he came under fire from other conservatives for supporting tax increases as Mayor and increasing city spending. It was widely believed that the more liberal Chafee would have an easier time winning in the general election due to his appeal to independent voters.[citation needed] Laffey received support from the conservative Club for Growth interest group. Although he was the most liberal Republican in the Senate and was repeatedly accused of being a RINO by members of his own party, the Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee spent a large amount of money backing Chafee, and, in an unprecedented move, announced that they would abandon the race if Laffey won. Chafee prevailed in the September 12 primary 54%-46%, and Laffey endorsed him for re-election. Chafee, however, may have been damaged by the contentious primary that potentially alienated Republican voters.

Chafee faced a complicated situation due to his political beliefs. He was unpopular with conservative Republicans whose votes he needed to win, yet represented a heavily Democratic constituency which overwhelmingly disapproved of George W. Bush and the Republican-controlled Congress. As a liberal Democrat running in a liberal, Democratic stronghold, Whitehouse did not face these problems. The Whitehouse campaign sought to characterize the election as a referendum on Bush and the Republican Congress; critics argued that Whitehouse was simply casting himself as a proxy vote for a Democratic majority in the Senate.

Polls showed a close race, with Whitehouse holding a narrow lead going into the election. In the end, however, voters seemed to place more emphasis on party control than their personal affection for Chafee. Whitehouse prevailed over Chafee on election night winning by a vote of 53%-47%.


Virginia

Early in the 2006 campaign, incumbent Republican Senator George Allen of Virginia held a double-digit lead in nearly all state-wide polls, and had positioned himself as a potential 2008 presidential candidate. That status was seriously jeopardized by a series of controversial events occurring during Allen's re-election campaign, culminating in his loss to his Democratic opponent, former Secretary of the Navy and decorated combat veteran Jim Webb. Retired Air Force officer Gail Parker ran as the Independent Green party candidate for the seat. The Virginia Senate election of 2006 was held on November 7, 2006. ...

Former Navy Secretary Jim Webb celebrates his upset victory over Senator George Allen. Allen had led in the polls by a double-digit margin just a few months before the election.

Among the most bitter U.S. Senate contests of the year, Allen's approval rating had dropped in statewide polls due in part to a series of embarrassing incidents during the campaign. In mid-August at a campaign stop in southwest Virginia, Allen called S.R. Sidarth, a Webb volunteer of Indian descent, "macaca" and welcomed him to America, although he was born in Virginia.[10] Controversy surrounding Allen continued into September following his reaction to questions about his Jewish heritage.[11] Additional reports surfaced in late September that Allen uttered the nigger epithet on a frequent basis while a student at University of Virginia, according to former college football teammates.[12] Allen fired back by pointing out remarks that Webb made during the 1980's that were demeaning to female veterans. He struck again when he released excerpts of graphic sexual scenes from some of the books Webb had penned, portraying the writing as misogynistic and pornography. Webb responded that these were based on events that he personally witnessed while in the military. Image File history File links WEBBWIN2. ... Image File history File links WEBBWIN2. ...

As controversy and allegations on both sides increased, the gap between the candidates tightened significantly.

As polls closed on November 7, 2006, the margin of votes between Webb and Allen was approximately 7,000 votes, or less than 0.5% of all votes cast, a margin eligible to trigger a recount per Virginia election law.[16] On the evening of November 8, 2006, NBC and the Associated Press declared Webb the winner.[17] Following recanvassing, the Virginia Board of Elections declared Webb the winner by 9,162 votes, a margin of 0.38%.[18] On the afternoon of November 9, 2006, Allen gave a speech conceding the election to Webb, stating "The people of Virginia have spoken and I respect their decision.

However, he chose to run as an independent in the general election and defeated both Lamont and Republican Alan Schlesinger.

Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman of Connecticut was originally thought to be a shoo-in, but his reelection prospects were complicated by political cross-currents. Lieberman drew fire from the more anti-war elements within the Democratic party for his continual support for the foreign policy of President George W. Bush and for statements in which he has criticized other Democrats for "undermining the President" during a time of war. Greenwich telecom-networking businessman Ned Lamont declared his candidacy for the Democratic nomination in March, and went on to receive 33.4% of the nomination vote at the Democratic state convention in May, more than twice the 15% needed to force a primary.

Challenging Lamont and Lieberman in the general election was Republican Alan Schlesinger, former mayor of Derby and a former state representative.

Lieberman went on to win the election with 50% of the vote to Lamont's 40%.

Ben Cardin is embraced by his wife, Myrna, as he celebrates his victory over Lt. Governor Michael Steele. Cardin succeeded retiring Democratic Senator Paul Sarbanes.

Senator Paul Sarbanes announced on March 11, 2005 that he would retire rather than run for re-election in 2006. Sarbanes' seat had been considered safe, considering Maryland's Democratic voting tendencies. Representative Ben Cardin bested former Representative and NAACP President Kweisi Mfume and others in the Democratic primary. Current Lieutenant Governor Michael S. Steele, a Republican, announced his candidacy on October 25, 2005, and won the Republican nomination over token opposition. Democrats had a natural advantage in Maryland, with its large number of African-American voters and government workers, but Steele's personal popularity and potential appeal with fellow blacks kept the race somewhat competitive.

Menendez had an approval rating of 38%, which was thought to be a sign of vulnerability for the incumbent, especially since his disapproval was at 50%.[27] Although incumbents approval ratings below 50% are generally considered vulnerable, this standard perhaps did not apply to Menendez as he had just been appointed at the start of 2006 and was not well known state-wide, a far different situation from most incumbents. President George W. Bush was highly unpopular in the state, but Governor Corzine's early performance in office met with widespread disapproval, contributing to the large number of undecided voters. The campaign became increasingly aggressive, with Menendez calling Kean a Bush lackey while Kean repeatedly attacked Menendez as corrupt.

Senator Bill Frist of Tennessee, the current Majority Leader, had previously promised to leave the Senate when his second term ended in January 2007, and was widely considered to have presidential aspirations for 2008 (however, he announced in late November, 2006, that he would not pursue a Presidential run).

Presidential electoral votes by state The U.S. presidential election of 2008 is scheduled to occur on November 4, 2008. ...


Although Tennessee's electoral votes went to George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004, a majority of the state offices are held by Democrats. Tennessee also has more registered Democratic voters than Republican voters and was at the time one of two states in the south to send more Democrats to the U.S. House of Representatives than Republicans, the other being Arkansas.


The Democratic nominee was Representative Harold Ford, Jr. and the Republican nominee was Bob Corker, both of whom won primaries on August 3. Corker, former mayor of Chattanooga and 1994 Senate candidate, was well funded and advertised heavily in the western portion of the state during his primary campaign, where he was relatively unknown before this race. Ford currently represents Tennessee's 9th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives. Like Corker, Ford showed exceptional fundraising prowess, and the race was an expensive one for both parties. Harold Ford redirects here. ... Bob Corker Robert Phillips Bob Corker, Jr. ...

The current boundaries of Tennessees Ninth District. ...


The candidates exchanged leads in the polls, and there were a number of negative charges. Ford attacked Corker's business dealings. Corker portrayed Ford as a hyper-political Washington insider with nothing in common with Tennessee residents. The campaign made headlines when the Republican National Committee ran an ad which, among other things, ridiculed Ford for attending a party thrown by the Playboy corporation. It featured a fictional blond Playboy Bunny squealing, "I met Harold at the Playboy Party!" and then winking and saying, "Harold, call me." Democrats called the ad an attempt to play on racial prejudice, and Corker distanced himself from the ad. Johanna Goldsmith is a young actress from Austin, Texas. ...


Corker won the election 51%-48%.
