    Let's look at a few seats contested:

    West Virginia - Joe Manchin retired. No way in hell Democrats hold this seat.
    Ohio - Sherrod Brown is a 3-term Senator, but Ohio is getting a lot redder. Might hold the seat, might not.
    Montana - Democrats have a better shot at holding this as long as they don't face a Trumpy nominee
    Arizona - real wildcard with Independent Kristyn Sinema, Democrat Ruben Gallego and Republican Kari Lake. This would be almost half a pickup if this goes from I to a more solid D
    Maryland - Larry Hogan's entry into the race means national Democrats now have to put money in a race that should be a solid Democrat 99% of the time. Don't think Hogan wins, but he's much more well known than whoever gets the Democratic nomination

    Texas (Ted Cruz) and Florida (Rick Scott) might flip, but we're talking about states that are a lot more solid red.

    Not sure on the rest but Gallego leads in head to head over lake and leads by a bit when Sinema run as an independent. He is pretty well liked across the state. People got tired of Lake when and like most others were asked to pony up the proof of meddling and presented nothing. We even had the joke of an audit performed at our fairgrounds.

    There is a 0% chance of Cruz or Scott losing.

    Apparently Trump currently leads Biden (by a relatively significant margin) in Maine. Maine! That's pretty brutal for Biden, and if polls like this continue, I think it's inevitable that the Dems find a way to kick Biden to the curb at their convention.

    I think the chances of Biden winning the election in November are about the same as Xavier's chances of winning the NCAA Tournament this year. Not great. And the Democrats are so freakin' stupid.

    The VAST majority of people don't want these two candidates, yet we ended up with these two candidates. That needs fixing.

    Interesting that it only specifically says “public schools”. You would think all schools that receive federal funding including “charter schools” would also be under that umbrella wouldn’t you?

    Probably so. Virginia requires all children to be vaccinate, in public or private schools.
