    2018 midterm elections catch-all thread

    I thought I’d start this so everything would be together and anything related can be posted here.

    First up: Orrin Hatch to retire after seven terms. Mitt Romney is expected to run for the seat.

    Alternate headline: Orrin Hatch announces retirement immediately after voting for GOP tax bill, torpedoing American economy to enrich self

    The upside: trading Hatch and Chaffetz for Romney and McMullen is probably a huge upgrade.

    This will be fun. Michelle Bachman is considering a run for Franken’s seat.

    Bachman is right up there with Palin, neither bad to look at but both are nuttier than a fruitcake. Where is Jesse Ventura when you need him?

    The Dems better hope the economy tanks.....otherwise it's not going to go the way they all think it's going to go.....

    Fresh off losing perhaps the safest Senate seat in the country, Roy Moore’s campaign manager is challenging Martha Roby in the Republican primary.

    Joe Arpaio, everyone’s favorite sheriff, is running for the Senate in Arizona.

    When the fact you will be 86 this year isn’t your biggest issue, there is a problem.

    The Democrats might do the impossible and take the Senate if the GOP keeps this up. If McCain dies and Joe and the Tea Party woman decide to go for separate seats, it would be funny if they both lost.

    My recommendation to the Democrats in 2018 is get the Republicans to run a child molester in every race and then accuse him of being a child molester.

    looks like a lot of GOP candidates are running, fear of a blue wave or something else?
