    or Louisiana. In both situations you have Democratic incumbents who tend their backyards pretty well. Especially Landrieu. I doubt you're going to find a top tier Republican in the state willing to take on either of them. Or maybe they just don't have any top tiers who can take down a sitting senator with seniority.

    North Carolina and Alaska are first defense seats with freshmen running for second terms. That is when a Senator is most at risk. But both are pretty good politicians, although I have to say Hagan will probably need more help than Begich.

    Mark Pryor and South Dakota are perhaps the most at risk, with Pryor probably much weaker than Johnson.

      Blanche Lincoln faced John Boozman, a Congressman.

      Arkansas has four House members, all Republican - but Pryor is a well-known name in Arkansas.

    •  I'm surprised at Pryor's numbers (0+ / 0-)

      I thought he was relatively popular in Arkansas. He at least seemed it compared to Blanche Lincoln. I'm hoping he can pull this one out. Gonna need the Big Dog a lot these next few years.
