Predictions

Democrats possess a field advantage in 2008, needing to defend only 12 seats, while Republicans must defend 23. In addition, six Republicans and no Democrats have announced that they are retiring. The open seat gap between the parties is the biggest in 50 years. [2]


Political pundits often use statewide results of recent presidential elections for comparison with subsequent Senate elections. Six of the 12 Democrats are from states won by George W. Bush in the 2004 election (Arkansas, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, South Dakota, and West Virginia) while four of the 23 Republicans are from states won by John Kerry (Maine, Minnesota, New Hampshire, and Oregon).

"Leans" -- the race is competitive, but one candidate has a clear advantage.

Norm Coleman of Minnesota

Main article: United States Senate election in Minnesota, 2008

Senator Norm Coleman won a tight contest in 2002 against former VP Walter Mondale after incumbent Paul Wellstone (DFL), died in an October plane crash. Many of Minnesota's more experienced politico's saw Coleman's electoral success as emanating directly from the highly partisan Wellstone memorial and not, as many say, a rightward drift in Minnesota politics. In 2006, popular Republican Governor Tim Pawlenty barely won re-election, Democrat Amy Klobuchar defeated retiring Republican Rep. Mark Kennedy in a Senate race, and the Democratic-Farmer-Labor (DFL) party took large majorities in the State House, gaining 19 seats, and made further gains in the state senate.

Main article: United States Senate election in New Hampshire, 2008

Senator John Sununu represents the swing state of New Hampshire. The state traditionally leaned Republican, but John Kerry from neighboring Massachusetts narrowly won in the 2004 Presidential election. New Hampshire also saw major Democratic gains in the 2006 elections, when Democrats took both of the previously Republican-held House seats, the gubernatorial race with a record vote share of 74%, and majorities in the State House and Senate, giving them concurrent control of both bodies for the first time since 1874.

A spokesman for popular Democratic Governor John Lynch said Lynch would not run for Sununu's seat in 2008.[53] Portsmouth' Mayor Steve Marchand (D) had announced his candidacy but withdrew from the race due to Shaheen's entry.[54] Katrina Swett (D), wife of former Democratic congressman Richard Swett, has also announced[55] but since then she withdrew from the race and endorsed Shaheen. Jay Buckey MD, a medical school director, Air Force Reserve flight surgeon, and former astronaut, is also running, and his non-political background could be appealing.[56] However, Sununu's 2002 opponent, former Governor Jeanne Shaheen, has decided to run and is generally held to be a far more formidable challenger.[26] A Rasmussen Reports poll shows Shaheen defeating Sununu by 48% to 43%.[57] A recent poll by the American Research Group has similar findings, with Shaheen holding a 54% to 38% lead [27].

In North Carolina, there had been rumors that Senator Elizabeth Dole would retire from the Senate and run for governor, but she said in 2006 that she intends to run for re-election.[58] She is believed to be the favorite unless she faces Democratic Governor Mike Easley, who will not be running for re-election because of term limits. A Dole-Easley race would be highly competitive, but Easley has indicated that he is not interested in serving in any legislature when the DSCC attempted to recruit him for the race.

Senator Lindsey Graham, as a reasonably popular Republican incumbent in strongly conservative South Carolina, is unlikely to be vulnerable to a Democratic challenge.

Summerville businessman and "grassroots right wing conservative" John J.

John Barrasso of Wyoming

Main article: United States Senate elections in Wyoming, 2008

John Barrasso was appointed by Governor Dave Freudenthal (D) on June 22, 2007 to fill the senate seat of Craig L. Thomas, who died on June 4.[73] Wyoming law requires that the interim senator be affiliated with the same political party as the departed senator. As Thomas was a Republican, the state's Republican central committee was to provide three names to Governor Freudenthal within two weeks, and the governor then had five days to appoint a person from that list to act as interim Senator. The number of applicants for the vacant senate seat was 31.[74] The state Republican central committee met to choose the three nominees on Tuesday, June 19; they selected Assistant U.S. Attorney General Tom Sansonetti, state senator Barrasso and former state treasurer Cynthia Lummis.[75] Senator Barrasso will serve until a special election which will be held, concurrent with the regular 2008 election, to fill the remainder of Thomas' term, which ends in January 2013.[76] Barrasso is expected to run in the Republican primary prior to that election. Of the two finalists who were not chosen, Sansonetti has vowed not to challenge Barrasso while Lummis hasn't ruled out running.[77] Former U.S. attorney Matt Mead, who resigned (as required by the Hatch Act of 1939) to unsuccessfully apply for interim senator, chose not to reapply for his old U.S. attorney position so he may challenge Barrasso in the Republican primary.[78] The Wyoming US Senate elections for 2008 will be held on November 4, 2008. ...
