2018 Senate races look like more bad news for Democrats
If Democrats thought it couldn’t get any worse than 2016, they hopefully won’t look at the 2018 Senate map looming ahead. In total, 33 Senate seats will be in play. Of those 33, only eight are held by Republicans. Democrats will be defending 25 (two are independents who caucus with Democrats). These Democrats were elected (or re-elected) during the 2012 presidential campaign and will now have to face the rougher terrain of a mid-term election.The story breaks down the races by states and the democrats are going to be defending several seats in red states this cycle.
