Schumer Wants Another Six Seats

Email Email Print

The Washington Post’s Chris Cillizza has video of New York’s Chuck Schumer setting his goals for Dem pick-ups in the fall Senate races.

He’s hunting for 57, and a filibuster-proof Senate.

The GOP needs to rally at least to those reliable conservatives who can rebuild the GOP’s bench in the upper chamber, like Colorado’s Bob Schaffer and Louisiana’s John Kennedy, while keeping great senators like Minnesota’s Norm Coleman well-funded against the attacks of the worst of the ’08 Dems, Al Franken.

And keeping wily Mitch McConnell as Republican senate leader will mean a great deal of security if November goes the wrong way.

Schumer is counting on a dispirited GOP base to sit out a cycle, which would allow him to build a big enough majority to withstand their inevitable reengagement as taxes and regulations rise at home and America retreats abroad.

The one place the GOP cannot indulge any grudges is with the Senate and its six year terms. Holding the line there is crucial to keeping the U.S. from absurd and far-reaching errors should Obama head-fake his way to the presidency.

Contribute $10, $25, $50 or $100 to each of these candidates online this weekend:

Schaffer for Senate

Kennedy for Senate

Coleman for Senate

McConnell for Senate.

Chuck Schumer thinks he’s riding a huge wave to being the power behind the thrones in D.C. The willingness of the GOP base to dig deep over the next seven months will prove him right or wrong.
