It was never seen as much doable as a US House majority….
The Republican’s have a stronger bench going for them there as a TON of Demeocrats bail from running….
But in the case of the US Senate?
It seems that Trump and other’s are backing Rightwingnuts that will probably win primaries but would be ran over voting wise come November (Democrats aided by GOPer’s themselves trying to ace out the wingnuts in the primaries giving good ammo for the Democratic opposition in the general election)….
Senate Republicans have one clear edict from Mitch McConnell heading into the midterms: Embrace electable candidates who can reclaim the majority. Actually achieving that goal is proving impossible.
Most of them remember Christine “I am not a witch” O’Donnell in 2010 as the poster child for haphazard campaigns that lost them winnable races. Even so, their laissez-faire approach to critical primaries risks saddling them with Republican nominees who blow it in November.
