What have we gotten with this Republican-led Senate?
Most of them vote in alignment with Trump well over 90% of the time. Any time Trump lies or does something abhorrent, they never speak up (or only offer the mildest “I’m disappointed” backed up with no action.) And we’ll never forget that they blocked witnesses during Trump’s impeachment and refused to allow for a full and complete trial.
Looking ahead to the next four years, this is what we can expect if the Republicans remain in charge: Not only will this sycophantic behavior continue, and McConnell will continue to bury all of the great legislation the Democratic-led House is passing, but we should fully expect that two Supreme Court justices appointed by Democratic presidents, Ruth Bader Ginsburg (who is 86) and Stephen Breyer (who is 81), will retire. We already have a 5-4 court in the conservatives’ favor. If the Republicans are in charge of the Senate for the next 4 years, we could be looking at a 7-2 court. I can’t conceive how awful that might be.
So, whether or not Trump wins re-election, we have to flip the Senate. It is a moral imperative that we do so.
Of the 35 Senate races we have in 2020, 23 of them are currently held by Republicans. Before you get really excited by that, know that many of those seats are in really, really red states. But of those 23, there are 9 races that are really competitive. And with the right environment (i.e. a blue wave) paired with strong funding and organizing, we can flip the net 4 seats we need to take control of the Senate.
These are the 9 Senate seats where we can concentrate our efforts and flip the Senate. Pick one and follow the link to learn how you can help!
Most Competitive (Toss Ups)
Very Competitive (Lean Republican)
Georgia (2 seats)
These races are not as competitive as the ones above, but Democrats are very animated about flipping these seats because of who the current Senator is.
