These Are the Democrats Who May Run in Battleground Senate Races in 2020
It’s never too early to be thinking about the next election, and nowhere is that truer than in a battleground state (or, of course, Washington, D.C.). As a new slate of senators prepares to take the oath of office in January 2019, the next potential crop are weighing the pros and cons of a Senate bid for 2020.
There will be 34 Senate seats up for election in 2020, including 33 regularly scheduled seats and one special election in Arizona to fulfill the remaining term for the late Sen. John McCain. The last time these seats were on the ballot in 2014, Republicans gained 9 seats, meaning they are defending more seats than Democrats in 2020.
Key battleground states will include the aforementioned Arizona, along with Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Maine, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Virginia, just to name a few. In addition, retirements could throw some races not currently on the radar into “battleground” territory (think Tennessee in 2018).
