    I think Ohio, Missouri, and Florida are in play for the democrats. Plus, i think Vitter, Thune, and Specter are vulnerable.

    For the republicans, they could maybe only pickup in Illinois or Colorado. Harry Reid has pretty low approval ratings so maybe there too.

    Kit Bond (R-MO) is retiring, so his Senate seat will be up for grabs. Robin Carnahan (who's father, our former Governor, Mel Carnahan, was not-so-affectionately referred to as tax man Carnahan) has already put her bid in for it. Daddy Mel ran for Senate in 2000, but was killed in a plane crash on his way to a campaign stop. He was posthumously elected and his wife Jean took his seat...and did absolutely nothing for the state of Missouri for a little more than a year.

    Roy Blunt and Sarah Steelman are projected to run on the Republican side. God, I hope one of them wins. I'm sick of Carnahans.

    EDIT: LOL just saw that you had Bond up there already...we Missourians aren't used to seeing his name Christopher. He's always been "Kit" to us :D.
