Republicans now see opportunity in more than a dozen 2014 Senate races

March 23, 2014

Washington Republicans say they are now competitive in more than a dozen states this year in their quest to take control of the Senate, as they and outside supporters continue to highlight problems with ObamaCare and the Democratic incumbents who backed the law.

Kansas GOP Sen. Jerry Moran, chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, told reporters Friday his party has “strong credible candidates” in races in “10, 11, 12, 13 states.”

“The map and opportunities have expanded dramatically in a year, in part because of the consequences of the Affordable Care Act,” he said on a conference call that marked the fourth anniversary of President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.

Meanwhile, conservative groups such as Americans for Prosperity are reportedly pouring million into races in which Democratic incumbents have supported ObamaCare.

Republican must pick up six seats to win control of the upper chamber. But until recently, they have set their sights mostly on a handful of largely conservative or Southern states in which Democratic incumbents are backing the law, including Alaska, Arkansas, Michigan, North Carolina and Louisiana.

    The Democratic Party can no longer be considered anything but a fringe lunatic organization that must be reformed for the good of the country.

    Well after Obama, it should be a clear sweep in all the states. Never in the history of this country has there ever been a more inept person serving in office. Never has there ever been any one so blatant in the complete
    disregard of our Constitution and never has there been any one with such a corrupt bunch of Agencies appointee as Obama. In fact never has there been any one that was a complete failure at everything needed by a President as Obama. Never in the history of this country as any elected official done more harm to our country than Obama. There have been questions about Presidents meeting the Citizenship requirements before, but never have
    there been so much evidence against his citizen ship with total disregard by
    both parties. In short, there is nothing about this president that is not questionable and rightfully so.

      James, while I agree it should be a clean sweep in every state, you’re forgetting this is the Republican Party, who are angering the religious right with their abandonment of social issues such as abortion, same-sex marriage along with talk of fixing Obamacare instead an outright repeal of this economy killing albatross. Plus you have Be-otch McConnell stating he’s going to “Crush” the Tea Party, the singular reason for the 2010 landslide. I myself will do a wait-and-see and after 2008 and 2012, I’m through voting for the lesser of the two evils, because the these days the two parties seem to be the same side of different coins.
