Democrats May Win Back U.S. Senate

Posted on April 8, 2016


It will take until November to know for sure if the Democrats take control of the U.S. Senate.

But signs are growing that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell miscalculated politically in deciding so quickly that Republicans should prevent consideration of President Barack Obama’s latest Supreme Court nominee.

This issue is playing a role in a dozen state most currently represented by Republican senators. That includes Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri. The possibility is good that the Democrats will regain the Senate control they lost in 2014.

Already, some of the most endangered Republicans have said they either would meet with Judge Merrick Garland, Obama’s nominee to succeed the late Justice Antonin Scalia, or, even worse for McConnell, would favor hearings and a Senate vote.

Back in January, 2009, McConnell said he would make sure Obama is a one-term president. That did not happen.

It is his dislike for Obama that may result in the defeat of several Republican senators in November.
