Polls TighteningTuesday, September 11, 2018
Several recent polls show how the Democrats could retake control of the Senate. Republicans currently hold a 51-49 seat majority, but there are now as many as four GOP-held seats that could flip.
Two of these seats – Tennessee and Texas – are ones that we are working to hold by supporting U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). According to the average of public polls, Blackburn trails by 1.3% and Cruz leads by just 3.2%.
These contests are very close and we cannot assume victory!
If we hold these two Senate seats, it will make it very difficult for the Democrats to retake the majority.
But thankfully we have a chance to grow the majority with several strong conservatives if we can help them flip seats that are currently held by the Democrats.
We’re supporting these five candidates this year who are challenging incumbent Democrats:
- Josh Hawley (R-MO)
- Mike Braun (R-IN)
- Matt Rosendale (R-MT)
- Patrick Morrisey (R-WV)
- John James (R-MI)
With your support, we can help these conservatives defeat their liberal opponents and strengthen the Senate.
The battle for the Senate is intense and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has not helped matters by failing to keep the party’s promises to repeal Obamacare, fund the border wall, and defund Planned Parenthood. But if we work together, we can help several principled conservatives win in November.
