UPDATED: RETAKE THE SENATE TO REPEAL OBAMACARE


By Jeff Rainforth:

In order to repeal Obamacare, we need a Republican majority in the Senate. The Senate currently has 53 Democrats, and 47 Republicans. Republicans must hold all of their Senate seats, PLUS pick up four more. According to Real Clear Politics, there are currently nine toss up seats for U.S. Senate. Two are currently held by Republicans. Below are the nine toss up Senate seats with links to contribute, volunteer, and to each candidate’s Twitter accounts. Please consider contributing so that we can retake the Senate and Repeal Obamacare. If Mitt Romney wins the presidency, he Cannot repeal Obamacare without a Republican controlled Senate. It is Imperative that we gain at Least four U.S. Senate seats.

You can also contribute to the National Republican Senatorial Committee. The NRSC is “the only political committee solely dedicated to electing Republicans to the U.S. Senate.” To contribute, visit www.nrsc.org.

I have listed the Senate races by order of polling data. The races that are the closest are at the top. (RCP = Real Clear Politics) See toss up polls at Real Clear Politics Senate Toss Up Races.

If the GOP doesn’t take back the Senate and win the presidency, Obamacare will most likely never be repealed. It will be here in some form or another. Please consider donating to, and volunteering for these Senate races Today. The future of America Truly depends on it.
