Who's running for U.S. Senate

Updated: Nov 1, 2020

Who are the women and men running for Senate in 2020.


Thirty-three women and men are on the ballot this November. If Democrats hope to regain control of the Senate, they must defend their existing seats and pick-up four. Pollsters believe the most likely to flip are Arizona, Maine, Colorado, and North Carolina. Many, many other seats are competitive. If Democrats could get to 60 seats, the body could restore the 2/3 super majority for future Supreme Court appointments and placements on the Federal bench. To counter such fantastical thinking, polling suggests that Democrats are in danger of losing seats in Alabama and Minnesota.
