Last summer, the Democrats penned a memo on "The State of the Senate Map." They guffawed,
"Republicans have not missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity. National Republicans have failed to put any blue or purple state into play..."
Well, things sure have changed quite a bit over the last six or seven months.
Republican momentum is palpable. Headline after headline shows Senate Republicans running a spread offense. No one summed it up as succinctly as The Fix
"In West Virginia, South Dakota and Arkansas, Republicans recruited their strongest candidate and, at worst, have even odds to take those Democratic seats. That gets the GOP halfway to its goal. With the addition of Colorado to the map, Republicans are now aggressively targeting eight other seats: Alaska, Colorado, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Virginia. While some of those seats are longer shots than others... all eight of them now feature serious GOP candidates who will raise real money and run real campaigns. If Republicans can win three of those eight seats... they win the majority in November. That's entirely doable..."
We are preparing to run successful, well-funded, winning campaigns in states across the country currently held by Democrats, including - but not limited to:
Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Louisiana, Montana, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Oregon, South Dakota, Virginia and West Virginia.
There might even be an additional surprise or two... who knows...
