What Congressional seats are up for election in 2006, even if they likely will go to one party or the other, I'm curious to see which ones are up. Can anyone tell me or send me to a place to get the info.

I assume you mean Senate seats.  All 435 seats in the House are up for re-election every 2 years.  The Senate's offical website has the ability to sort by class, here are the Senators whose term expires in 2007:

Actually no, I didn't realize that. The reason being is cause I am an ignorant lout. Oh my, how embarrassing. Thanks KEmperor for helping my out on that one. But yes, I want to know the Senate too.

No problem.  You have the excuse that you are Canadian.  Anyway, I put the link up for it.

ARIZONA - JOHN KYL (R)
CALIFORNIA - DIANNE FEINSTEIN (D)

-Given the poor performance of Bush in California will the Republicans even contest this seat?

CONNECTICUT - JOE LIEBERMAN (D)

-Looserman is still arround?  Oh it is Connecticut that explains it.

DELAWARE - TOM CARPER (D)
FLORIDA - BILL NELSON (D)

-Will he be the next southern democrat to go down to defeat?

HAWAII - DANIEL AKAKA (D)
INDIANA - RICHARD LUGAR (R)
MAINE - OLYMPIA SNOWE (R)

- Isn't she a RHINO?  Will she be targeted in the primary? 

MARYLAND - PAUL SARBANES (D)

- Same question as California.

MASSACHUSETTES - EDWARD M KENNEDY (D)

- Same question as California.

MICHIGAN - DEBBIE STABENOW (R)

Who?  An R from Michigan?  Bye bye.

MINNESOTA - MARK DAYTON (D)
MISSISSIPPI - TRENT LOTT (R)

He's still around?!?  Oh it's mississippi that explains it.

MISSOURI - JIM TALENT (R)
MONTANA - CONRAD BURNS (R)
NEBRASKA - BEN NELSON (D)
NEVADA - JOHN ENSIGN (R)
NEW JERSEY - JON CORZINE (D)
NEW MEXICO - JEFF BINGAMAN (D)
NEW YORK - HILLARY CLINTON (D)
NORTH DAKOTA - KENT CONRAD (D)

A repeat of South Dakota?

OHIO - MIKE DEWINE (R)
PENNSYLVANIA - RICK SANTORUM (R)

Seems out of step with Pennsylvania, but I'm guessing he'll win.

RHODE ISLAND - LINCOLN CHAFEE (R)

Another RHINO that will be targeted.

TENNESSEE - BILL FRIST (R)
TEXAS - KAY BAILEY HUTCHISON (R)
UTAH - ORRIN HATCH (R)
VERMONT - JIM JEFFORDS (I)
VIRGINIA - GEORGE ALLEN (R)

Oh I see why he flip-flopped on the Clinton gun ban.

WASHINGTON - MARIA CANTWELL (D)
WEST VIRGINIA - ROBERT C BYRD (D)
WISCONSIN - HERB KOHL (D)
WYOMING - CRAIG THOMAS (R)


So by my completely uninformed opinion - R's start with 16 and will keep 13.  D's start with 17 (inc the I) and will keep 15.  That leaves 5 that can change.

Thoughts?

CALIFORNIA - DIANNE FEINSTEIN (D)

No, if she runs. I think that might be a big if.

FLORIDA - BILL NELSON (D)

-Will he be the next southern democrat to go down to defeat?

It would be tough to beat him. We didn't beat Graham. He retired. I think that was instrumental in the pick-up.  All of those seats we picked up in the South were open seats. We didn't even try to knock-off Lincoln.

MAINE - OLYMPIA SNOWE (R)

- Isn't she a RHINO [sic]?  Will she be targeted in the primary? 

In Maine, no. She's not a RINO.

NORTH DAKOTA - KENT CONRAD (D)

A repeat of South Dakota?

Conrad isn't Daschle. Daschle was very public about his attacks against Bush. Conrad doesn't get the press Daschle did.

PENNSYLVANIA - RICK SANTORUM (R)

Seems out of step with Pennsylvania, but I'm guessing he'll win.

Barb Hafer will give him a good race, for sure.

RHODE ISLAND - LINCOLN CHAFEE (R)

Another RHINO [sic] that will be targeted.

He didn't even vote for Bush. He's safe.

As already mentioned, all of the house seats are elected every two years, but many are gerrymandered into uncontestable districts.  Some states do it for both parties.  It would be interesting to know how many truly contestable elections there will be in 2006.
