U.S. Senators and Elections - A Non-Partisan History

Recommended Posts

This is a fact-based, apolitical list of the United States Senate and its Elections - I will be filling this in backwards over time.
There are three "classes" of Senators, each having elections every six years (assuming there are no early vacancies).
Class 1 (33 Senators) last had an election in 2012, Class 2 (33 Senators) in 2014, and Class 3 (34 Senators) in 2010.
The 114th U.S. Congress begins on Jan 3, 2015. If this list is ever completed, it will go backwards in time to 1789.
 
Any candidate getting more than 10% of the vote is named. Any election with each opponent receiving less than 10% is deemed unopposed.
Former Senators with at least 30 years of service (equivalent to five full terms) are noted with the number of years served by their Wikipedia link.
With few exceptions, the top two names on the left side, for each state, are generally the incumbent Senators (assuming the new ones have been sworn in).
Also by definition, anyone listed on the right side with a Wikipedia link is a former Senator who has completed his or her time in office.
d = defeated (general or primary election), r = retired (or chose not to run again), u = unopposed, v = vacated (before the term ended), a = appointed, * = special election

You know, it's funny, I was thinking of you a great deal when I was writing this list because I know how strongly partisan you are. Let this be an example that two people with polar-opposite viewpoints - not in terms of "Republicans vs. Democrats," but in terms of "parties vs. individuals" - can be friends.

I know my belief (that the two-party system should be abolished, and that only people *as individuals* should merit attention) is pie-in-the-sky fantasy, but that's what I believe. I'm proud to say that Member #1 voted for Ralph Nader. Why? Not primarily because she wanted Nader to win, but because it was a vote against the two-party system - in France, for example, there are many parties getting meaningful numbers of votes in each election (not that France is any sort of paradigm of virtue). Winning by plurality instead of majority forces politicians to negotiate, and it forces voters to think; in our system, politicians either ram their views down peoples' throats (if they have a majority), or do their absolute best to obstruct, obfuscate, and stall for the next election (if they do not).

You're free to make your comment about Fox News, but please make it fact-based and thoughtful; not a cheap pot-shot. :)

I don't care about political parties. I fully support the idea of changing the entrenched two party system. What I object to is conservatism (believe it or not, I used to be conservative). It ain't the 50's anymore, or the dark ages for that matter, so let's make some progress on cleaning all this shit up.

It's hard to make a fact-based comment about Fox News given the lack of fact-based reality they present.

Anyway, I'll leave this thread alone from here. Suffice it to say, I could do without having a majority leader who publicly and shamelessly stated that his one and only goal is to obstruct the governance of our country. Also, he's a poopyhead.

One correction to the list:  Mary Landrieu did not defeat Cassidy and Maness.  Louisiana requires 50% plus one so there will be a runoff between Landrieu and Cassidy in early December.

(As for Alaska, Begich has not conceded yet due to the absentee and questionable ballots still needing to be counted.)

Yes, there are three premature races here - AK, LA, and VA - which I will change accordingly if/when the time comes.

(As to why I wrote it as such, I know myself, and once something is no longer directly under my nose, I'll forget about it - it's the exact same reason I declared Duffy's Irish Pub as being "Closed" at 8 PM last night when it was still open until midnight.)

I've updated the list of U.S. Senators and Senate races to include the 2016 elections. 

Is it possible to do this without being partisan? Yes it is. Here are my observations:

* No political affilations have been listed for any candidates.

* AK - Lisa Murkowski won, keeping the "Murkowski Streak" alive (Lisa succeeded her father Frank) for 7 consecutive elections.

* AL - Richard Shelby won his 6th consecutive election.

* AZ - John McCain won his 6th consecutive election (McCain replaced the retiring Barry Goldwater, also a 6-term Senator).

* CA - Kamala Harris became the 2nd black-American female Senator (Carol Moseley-Braun was the first). CA has had all-female Senators for 24 years.

* FL - Marco Rubio won his 2nd consecutive election, not having given up his seat to campaign for the Presidency.

* IA - Chuck Grassley won his 7th consecutive election.

* ID - Mike Crapo's name is pronounced "CRAY-poe") :).

* IL - Tammy Duckworth won the seat once held by Barack Obama.

* IN - Retired, 2-term Senator Evan Bayh (son of 3-term Senator Birch Bayh) came out of retirement, ran, and lost

* KY - Rand Paul followed in Marco Rubio's path, winning his 2nd consecutive election.

* LA - Nobody got 50% of the vote, so a runoff election will be held on Dec 10.

* MA - Did not have an election, but nevertheless has had 7 different Senators since 2009, more than any other state.

* MD - Barbara Mikulski retired after serving 6 terms.

* ME - Did not have an election, but remains the only state besides CA with no male Senators yet this century.

* NV - Harry Reid retired after serving 6 terms.

* NY - Chuck Schumer won his 4th consecutive election.

* SC - It shouldn't matter, but it's nice to see two black-Americans running against each other.

* VT - Patrick Leahy won his 8th consecutive election, giving VT arguably the most powerful 1-2 Senatorial punch (the other is Bernie Sanders).

* WA - Patty Murray won her 5th consecutive election.

* WI - Retired, 3-term Senator Russ Feingold came out of retirement, ran, and lost.

See? No political partisanship. And if you've read this far, then congratulations: You probably have a life.

I've updated the list of U.S. Senators and Senate races to include the 2017 special election. 

* No political affilations have been listed for any candidates.

* AL - Doug Jones won in one of the most scrutinized races ever - he will replace Luther Strange who, at 6'9", is the tallest Senator in history. From reading the chart up above, it appears that Strange is the first appointed Senator to be defeated in a primary election (at least, in the same year they were appointed) since Sheila Frahm in 1996.

* MN - Al Franken resigned as a result of #MeToo, and was replaced by Tina Smith - appointed by the Governor.

If anyone wants to make a separate thread which lists the parties of all candidates, then you can use my list as a baseline. All I ask is that no partisan *commentary* is spoken, and that the parties are listed with a detached, historical perspective.

I've updated the list of U.S. Senators and Senate races to include the 2018 elections. 

* No political affiliations have been listed for any candidates.

* AZ - One-term Senator Jeff Flake retired, and after a six-day dogfight, will be replaced by our first openly bisexual Senator, Kyrsten Sinema, who defeated incumbent Martha McSally, a former Colonel in the U.S. Air Force, and the first American woman ever to fly in combat. The only other two Senators beside Sinema in this seat since Neil Armstrong's Moon Walk have been John McCain (31 years) and Barry Goldwater (30 years).

* CA - The Institution, Diane Feinstein, cruised to reelection against a fellow-party member - remember, Feinstein was the mayor of San Francisco (1978-1988).

* CT - 3-term House member, Chris Murphy, won his 2nd Senate election, holding Joe Lieberman's chair (at 39, he was the youngest Senator in the 2012 election). 

* DE - Former Governor (8 years) and Representative (10 years) Tom Carper won his 4th straight Senatorial election.

* FL - Worth over $100 million (from the criminally negligent Hospital Corporation of America), Rick Scott paid plenty to win his 3rd-straight state-wide election over incumbent Bill Nelson.

*MA - With strong, national, name recognition, incumbent Elizabeth Warren cruised into office for the second time against first-time opponent Geoff Diehl

*MD - Two-term incumbent Ben Cardin defeated potential first Maryland African-American Senator, and former Army Chaplain, Tony Campbell.

* ME - Gloriously Independent Angus King defeated two 10%+ opponents, both partisan, for the second election in a row - this is how politics should be done.

* MI - Two-term Representative and Senatorial Incumbent Debbie Stabenow wins her 4th-consecutive election.

* MN - Amy Klobuchar wins her 3rd-consecutive election.

* MO - In a theoretical upset, young and charismatic Josh Hawley defeated two-term incumbent Claire McCaskill.

* MS - In a special election for Thad Cochran's vacated seat, Cindy Hyde-Smith must re-run against Mike Espy on Nov 27, 2018, as neither got 50% of the vote.
* MS - 6-term House Member Roger Wicker won his 2nd Senate election - he was originally appointed to fill Trent Lott's vacated seat during his 6th House term.

* MT - Jon Tester won his 3rd-straight close election - he is now the senior Montana Senator following the departure of Max Baucus.

*ND - Representative Kevin Cramer defeated incumbent Heidi Heitkamp in a somewhat contentious election in the national spotlight.

* NE - Deb Fischer, from the rural Sandhills of Nebraska, won her first reelection bid.

* NV - Jacky Rosen defeated incumbent Dean Heller - Rosen was the only House freshman to win a Senatorial Race, and is the only new member of her party. 

* NJ - Bob Menendez, the former Chair of the Foreign Relations Comnittee, who stepped down on federal corruption charges in 2015, was again reelected.

*NM - Incumbent Martin Heinrich defeated unopposed primary candidate Mick Rich, and meaningful third-party candidate Gary Johnson, who won 15% of votes.

*NY - Incumbent Kirsten Gillibrand handily defeated private-equity executive, Cele Ciavacci Farley, receiving almost double Farley's votes.

*OH - Two-time incumbent Sharrod Brown defeated four-time Representative Jim Renacci in a race between two, well-known candidates in Ohio.

*PA - Bob Casey, Jr., son of former Pennsylvania Governor, Bob Casey, holds onto the seat he wrested from Rick Santorum in 2006.

*RI - Similarly to in Pennsylvania above, Sheldon Whitehouse first ran in 2006, defeating incumbent Lincoln Chafee, and won election to his third term.

*TN- Running for the seat of retiring Bob Corker, Marsha Blackburn became the first-ever female Senator from Tennessee, defeating Phil Bredesen.

*TX - In the most-covered race in the United States, incumbent Ted Cruz held on to defeat the reticent phenom, Beto O'Rourke. 

*UT - Former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney jumped back into the national political scene, winning the contest for retiring Orrin Hatch's seat.

*VI - Former VP Candidate Tim Sanders easily won reelection over Corey Stewart, who still managed 40% of the total vote.

* VT - Independent candidate, Bernie Sanders, won handily over Lawrence Zupan, who himself won over 26% of the popular vote.

* WA - Incumbent Junior Senator Maria Cantwell defeated Susan Hutchison, extending Washington's duel-female representation for 18 years.

*WV - Weakened incumbent Joseph Manchin III held off a competitive Patrick Morrisey by over 3 percentage points, for his 2nd full-term election.

* WI - Incumbent Tammy Baldwin defeated another strong female in the Western races, holding back Leah Vukmir by over 10 percentage points.

* WY - Strong incumbent John Barrasso had little problem with former two-time House nominee, Gary Trauner, who returned to national politics after 10 years.

Your 2020 U.S. Senate election guide (accidentally posted just now, and a work in progress)

AK R Dan Sullivan wins against weak competition
AL -> R Doug Jones loses against Tommy Tuberville (former football coach at Auburn) or Jeff Sessions (former Attorney General)
AR R Tom Cotton wins unopposed
AZ -> D Mark Kelly wins against Martha McSally in a "battle of heroic pilots" (for John McCain's vacated seat)
CO -> D Cory Gardner loses against Tommy Hickenlooper (former Democratic primary Presidential candidate)
DE D Chris Coons rides Biden's coattails (and easily holds Biden's Senate seat) against Lauren Witzke
GA -> D Jon Ossoff fends off David Perdue in a Jan 5, 2021 runoff, and a referendum on the Nov, 2020 election - if Ossoff wins in Nov 2020, it will be part of a blue wave
GA R Doug Collins wins against Raphael Warnock or Ed Tarver (unless Ossoff wins in Nov, 2020 - see above) - a dramatic white Republican vs. black Democrat race
IA -> D Theresa Greenfield upsets Joni Ernst
