This weekend dig deep and help the key GOP challengers in the critical Senate races across the country:

Carly Fiorina in California (Fiorina -5 –GOP pickup)

Ron Johnson in Wisconsin (Johnson -2 –GOP pickup)

Dino Rossi in Washington State (Rossi -1 –GOP pickup)

Sharron Angle in Nevada (Angle 11 –GOP pickup)

Mark Kirk in Illinois (Kirk 3 –GOP pickup)

Jane Norton in Colorado (Norton 6 –GOP pickup)

Marco Rubio in Florida (tied –GOP hold)

Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania (Toomey 7 –GOP pickup)

Roy Blunt in Missouri (Blunt 1 –GOP hold)

Rob Portman in Ohio (tied –GOP hold)

Dan Coates in Indiana (Coates 14 –GOP pickup)

Rand Paul in Kentucky (Paul 8 –GOP hold)

John Boozman in Arkansas (Boozman 38 –GOP pickup)

Mike Castle in Delaware (Castle 23 –GOP pickup)

John Hoeven in North Dakota (Hoeven 56 –GOP pickup)

The Republicans need to pick up nine seats in the Senate to get to a 50/50 split, and though very hard to do, it is possible.

I have arranged these candidates in a rough order –most difficult race to most certain– but every race needs volunteers and money. (I will move long shot Linda McMahon in Connecticut on to the list if she closes to within 10.) If you live in the state where the race is happening, get involved on the ground as a volunteer as well as via an online contribution.

But no matter where you live, adopt one or more of these candidates and start contributing $10 or $25 or $50. And if you can afford it, contribute to them all. As yesterday’s vote showed again, the country cannot afford this Senate. The youngest Americans especially have to fight for a country that won’t be run from inside the Beltway.

Getting the Senate into responsible hands will take a lot of generosity and sacrifice in a period of time when budgets are tight and worries about the future deepening.

But it can be done, and hopefully you will either begin or continue your efforts this weekend.
