Even CNN Can Miss The Point
CNN has a news article out today entitled: Senate Democrats pin hopes on seven states.
And this just misses the point, the bigger picture. The Republicans are defending only 15 of their seats this year. If the Senate Democrats think they can credibly target 7 of those 15, it’s not “pinning their hopes at all”. What’s happening is a full one-half of the Senate Republicans up for election are vulnerable to defeat.
Now isn’t that a bigger story than the internal DSCC strategy? Shouldn’t we be talking about how many Republican incumbents could lose?
Granted, it’s still unlikely the Democrats could win back the Senate, as they would need a net gain of 6 seats to do that, but every Senator they can target above that magical 6 makes it just a little more likely thati t could happen.
