Main article: Missouri United States Senate election, 2012

Main article: Virginia United States Senate election, 2012

Jim Webb was first elected to the Senate in 2006 by a margin of .6 percent, defeating then-incumbent George Allen in the biggest upset of the 2006 election, influenced by a number of gaffes on Allen's part, most notably an ethnic slur in which Allen referred to a Webb supporter using the word "macaca".
