Democratic senators are confronted with significant challenges in their effort to maintain control of the majority when November arrives.

The upcoming 2024 Senate race is shaping up to be a tough battle for Democrats, who are facing a challenging map and the retirement of Senator Joe Manchin in West Virginia. With 22 incumbent seats to defend, many in Republican-leaning states, Democrats are also hoping to pick up a seat in either Texas or Florida, where Senators Ted Cruz and Rick Scott are running for reelection. Currently holding a slim majority of 51-49, Democrats are facing tough competition in key states like Montana and Ohio, where Senators Jon Tester and Sherrod Brown are seeking reelection. Despite facing formidable challengers, both Tester and Brown have strong approval ratings and have raised significant funds for their campaigns. However, Republicans are also gearing up for a potential primary in Montana, with Congressman Matt Rosendale considering a bid. In Ohio, the state has shifted towards the Republican party in recent years, making Brown’s reelection bid a challenging one. With the Senate majority at stake, both parties are gearing up for a tough and closely watched race in 2024.
