Rothenberg Reports on Status of Senate Races

Stuart Rothenberg, one of the most respected political analysts, released a report of the vulnerability of Senate seats across the country. Three Republican Senators – Norm Coleman of Minnesota, Susan Collins of Maine and Wayne Allard’s open Colorado seat—are on Rothenberg’s Most Vulnerable list.

Gordon Smith (R-OR) and John Sununu (R-NH) made the “Watch” list and yet another ten Republicans are on the current safe list, but as we saw in the 2006 election, any of these seats could become competitive over the next several months. Without these and other real Republicans in office, the national agenda will continue to remain out of the control of the GOP.

It is imperative that senators like Susan Collins and other common sense Republicans like her remain in office. People like Collins represent the values held by the real Republican majority and if we lose these key senatorial seats, the GOP will continue to lose at the ballot box.

Oh god, I just hope Sununu retains his seat... he is one of our greatest Real Republicans.
