Every Ohio U.S. Representative is poised to win reelection in November – the first time incumbents would sweep the state in back-to-back cycles in Ohio history.
Since 1972, 12 of the 27 Republican U.S. Senators to lose during presidential election cycles did so while the GOP White House nominee carried their state.
Contrary to what he said during his DNC speech Tuesday, the former Arkansas governor did not even rank in the Top 10 youngest ex-governors when he lost his 1980 election bid.
Indiana Governor Mike Pence’s name may be added to a very short list of failed vice-presidential nominees who gave up their seats along the way.
After the 2016 election, 10 states could have a Republican governor and two Democratic U.S. Senators; only one state currently has the reverse.
Only five out of nearly 200 U.S. Senate vacancies since 1913 were caused by a voluntary resignation that resulted in a change in partisan control of the seat.
Only twice in U.S. history have both of a state’s U.S. Senate delegation members shared the same last name.
If Democrats win the White House and net just four U.S. Senate seats this November, they will lose their majority status in the chamber by January 20th should Clinton pick Brown, Cory Booker, or Elizabeth Warren as her running mate.
Five states (plus two yet to vote) will keep their perfect records intact for backing the eventual Republican nominee in the modern primary era; two states lost their bellwether status this cycle.
The last time 20 or more Republican U.S. Senators ran for reelection was in 1926 – the party lost seven seats that cycle including six freshmen.
