Vermont, Maine - both Indies are effectively the Democrat here.
Tennessee - the Democrat is basically a Paulite. How about no.....
Utah - Democrat made really insensitive comments here.
Delaware, West Virginia - both candidates are too moderate for their states (or in Manchin's case, is too much of an attention whore). I'd say the same about California, but there's no 3rd party on the ballot.

For the non-blues...

CA: I like Feinstein as an increasingly rare DLCer.
DE: Carper is inoffensive.
MD: Cardin is inoffensive.
MI: I'm not supporting a race-baiter who indulged in Birtherism.
MO: Self-explanatory.
RI: Reed is inoffensive.
WV: Manchin is a conservative Dem, eminently tolerable.

Arizona: Flake is actually one of the more tolerable pubs running this year....but Carmona.
California: Didn't really like endorsing Feinstein, but there are no other options.
Connecticut: Murphy seems pretty good and McMahon seems to be....a tad out there.
Delaware: Endorsed the Green here. Carper is a nonentity. Meh.
Florida: Nelson is one of the better moderate Democrats.
Hawaii: Not a lot to say here.
Indiana: Mourdock is a very stereotypical Republican name, no?
Maine: Going down the Moderate Hero route here.
Maryland: Cardin is another meh.
Massachusetts: One of my more enthusiastic endorsements.
Michigan: Green again. Why not, eh?
Minnesota: Endorsed the Progressive candidate here. Not keen on Klobuchar.
Mississippi: Al Gore '12!
Missouri: Well, yeah.
Montana: Tester seems okay.
Nebraska: For similar reasons to California.
Nevada: With about as much excitement as my 2010 endorsement for Reid. Not very much.
New Jersey: I have a low opinion of Menendez. Endorsed the Socialist candidate.
New Mexico: Heinrich is good enough from what I've heard.
New York: Not a fan of either of the NY Senators. Another Green.
North Dakota: Competitive race, no other option, etc.
Ohio: Brown is one of the better Senators.
Pennsylvania: Casey is not my cup of tea, but....
Rhode Island: Hopefully he runs for President one day for hilarity's sake.
Tennessee: Green again. What has Corker done to be so well-liked on here?
Texas: I must quite like the Greens. Tongue
Utah: The Justice Party, of course.
Vermont: The Great Bernie Sanders.
Virginia: Not very happy about this either, but what ya gonna do?
Washington: Meh again.
West Virginia: The WV Democratic Party seems awful. Manchin is even worse. Mountain Party.
Wisconsin: My most enthusiastic endorsement.
Wyoming: Yeah, whatever.

Wait, you think that DLCers are becoming rarer? I don't know what to say to that.

Anyways, here's my map. Pretty obvious as to which elections I have a problem with.

Arizona: Jeff Flake is among my favorite Republicans and I'd love to see him in the Senate. Good man.
California: I loathe Feinstein. I thus vote for her opponent.
Connecticut: McMahon's a nut.
Delaware: I don't find much objectionable about Carper.
Florida: I really dislike Nelson and find Mack pretty decent on civil liberties.
Hawaii: Eh, Democrat.
Indiana: Mourdeck's a JCLesque figure… Donnelly.
Maine: King, easily.
Maryland: I like independents, and this one has a good shot at second.
Massachusetts: Warren is far-left and Brown is a moderate.
Michigan: Don't like Hoekstra, and don't have an issue with Stabenow.
Minnesota: Bills is Paulesque and Klobuchar is a horrible, horrible person.
Mississippi: Why, Al Gore, of course.
Missouri: McCaskill is meh and Akin is a HP, and Dine's actually got a pretty decent campaign.
Montana: Tester is among my favorite Senate Dems.
Nebraska: I like Kerrey and Fischer seems far-right.
Nevada: Heller, since the Democrat is horrendously corrupt and the Independent is crazy.
New Jersey: Menendez is on my enemies list. Libertarian I guess.
New Mexico: Heinrich is a pretty decent Dem.
New York: Not a fan of the Republican and Gillibrand is another one of my least favorite Senators. Ergo, the Independent.
North Dakota: Berg is meh and Heitkamp is decent.
Ohio: Don't like Mandel and hate Brown. The nonparty.
Pennsylvania: The man who is not Bob Casey.
Rhode Island: The not-Whitehouse.
Tennessee: The independent who bills himself as "none of the above".
Texas: Cruz is a decent R.
Utah: Justice Party!
Vermont: None (which is apparently a Democrat).
Virginia: I like Webb and Webb doesn't like Allen, so Kaine.
Washington: Baumgartner is awesome (he was the guy who told a blogger to go fuck himself and refused to apologize for it because he meant it).
West Virginia: Don't like Manchin, don't like the R. Mountain, whatever the hell that is.
Wisconsin: I like the I.D.E.A. guy a lot. Decent guy, veteran, all that.
Wyoming: The libertarian (what they call Country).

For the record, there are 9 Senators up for re-election who I think are the worst of the lot and deserve to be thrown out immediately by anyone else. They are Brown (OH), Casey, Corker, Feinstein, Gillibrand, Klobuchar, Menendez, Nelson, and Whitehouse.

And Gaas, I'd assume that they find the center-right candidates in MA, NV, and WI closer to them ideologically and more willing to work with them than the far-left candidates in those states. Also, http://www.crewsmostcorrupt.org/mostcorrupt/entry/shelley-berkley

Mourdock is tame compared to me. How is the Dem in Tennesse a Paulite?

He says he's a Paulite; he's one of the more fringe aspects of the group (NAFTA superhighway Amero North American Union stuff).
