United States Senate Election

United States Senate Election

Senators are very important for our country, and most people all have strong opinions on who they want representing their state in Congress. The Senate election will take place on November 6, 2018. Each senator serves a six-year term, and this year 33 out of the 100 senators are up for reelection. These 33 include senators from various states. There are 23 Democrats, 2 independents who caucus with Democrats, and 8 Republicans. For Democrats to retake control of the Senate, they will need to pick up 3 more seats. Many people say this is unlikely, but a lot could change in politics from now until November. In this year’s election, there are 10 seats most likely to switch parties. These states include Arizona, Nevada, Missouri, Indiana, West Virginia, North Dakota, Florida, Montana, Minnesota, and Ohio. California’s two current senators are Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein. Kamala Harris has been a senator since 2017, and Dianne Feinstein has been a senator since 1995 and is the oldest female senator. She is currently up for reelection, as a Democrat, and will have the primary election on June 5, 2018. There are several candidates for the California primary election, including 10 Democrats, 11 Republicans, 1 Libertarian, and 9 nonpartisan candidates. Many Californians hope that Dianne Feinstein will be reelected to the Senate, due to all the great contributions, and great things she has done in Congress.
