It’s very early to make any predictions about the 2022 races. Historically the party in power loses in off year elections, but not always. There are many variables that could affect elections nearly a year away-COVID issues, economic issues, the effect of the new legislation recently passed, the investigation into the Jan 6th assault on the Capitol building, etc. and who knows what else could pop up in the next year to affect the election?

The Democrats need to find someone attractive, but unknown politically, to run in as a Republican, and then who will behave as a Democrat if elected. Like Kyrsten Sinema, but the opposite. :lol:

You laugh but I was actually thinking the same thing, although my brain's version of it was, "run like Obama governed and then govern like Obama ran."

I think a state benefits more when there is one senator from each party so that when congressional control and presidential administrations shift, we have at least one senator with influence within their own party to help our state.

Hartzler is well-known, but has only won a congressional seat. Never a statewide race.
I happen to live in Hartzler's district and get her weekly newsletters. She sounds like a 100% Trumper. It's going to be an interesting race, moreso if Trump is still a force. Don't believe he has endorsed any candidate yet so will have to see whose side he comes down on.

I was wondering why the Republicans didnt try this with as unpopular as China is trying to tie your opponent to them is a great move. This is a brilliant ad by Kunce and good to see him offensive before the pubs try to go into the weeds with fake issues like CRT.
