  •  will the record of most years in between the time (0+ / 0-)

    a senator from one party was last elected ever be broken? For instance, the record between electing republican senators is in Rhode Island with 46 years (1930 and 1976) and for democrats it is in Pennsylvania (1962 and 2006).

    The easiest way for the Republicans to break that margin would be in West Virginia, where a republican senator hasn't been elected since 1942.

    For the democrats it is trickier. I doubt Idaho (1974) Utah and Wyoming (both 1970) and Kansas (1932) will elect a democrat to the senate in my lifetime.

    Wyoming would probably be the best bet since it has a small population and a large influx of trustafarian types could make it easier to swing to the left.
