Wait, people voted for more than just the presidential election on Super Tuesday, right? Yes, indeed. Here’s how the primary affected 10 Senate races:

Alabama

The Democrats are defending Doug Jones’ (D) seat, the most at-risk seat the Democrats have this cycle. Following Tuesday’s primary, we know he’ll either be facing former Trump Attorney General Jeff Sessions or former football coach Tommy Tuberville.

Donate to Doug Jones HERE.

Colorado

We want to flip Cory Gardner’s (R) seat, the most at-risk seat the Republicans are trying to defend. Although Colorado had its presidential primary on Super Tuesday, their statewide primary isn’t until June 30.

That said, HERE’s what you can do today to help flip this seat.

Maine

Home of Susan Collins (R), another Senate seat we want to flip. Maine only had its presidential primary on Super Tuesday. We have to wait until the statewide primary on June 9 to find out who will be the Democratic Senate nominee.

However, you can help flip this seat today. Click HERE to find out how.

Massachusetts

Senator Ed Markey (D) should have a fairly safe election this year. We won’t know his primary opponent until the September 1 statewide primary.

Donate to Ed Markey HERE.

Minnesota

Tina Smith (D) is in a somewhat competitive race this year. Her Republican opponent won’t be decided until the statewide primary on August 11.

That said, you can donate to her campaign HERE.

North Carolina

We have a real shot at flipping Thom Tillis’ seat in the Senate this year. On Super Tuesday, Cal Cunningham decisively won the Democratic nomination.

Follow and amplify Cunningham on Twitter HERE, and donate to his campaign HERE.

Oklahoma

Jim Inhofe’s (R) seat is not in much danger in 2020. That said, we should make a run at every seat. Make the Republicans work. We won’t know who the Democratic primary opponent is until the statewide primary on June 30.

Tennessee

Lamar Alexander (R) is retiring, leaving an open Senate seat. We won’t know who the Democratic or Republican nominees are until the statewide primary on August 6.

Texas

John Cornyn’s (R) seat might be flippable, but as we all know, Texas is a tough place. A lot of work will need to go into this race. On Super Tuesday, the large Democratic field narrowed down to two — MJ Hegar and Royce West — who will face off in a runoff on May 26.

HERE are some ways you can help flip this seat.

Virginia

Mark Warner’s (D) seat is fairly safe in 2020. That said, we should make sure he has the resources to win. We won’t know who the Republican opponent is until the statewide primary on June 9.

You can donate to Mark Warner HERE.
