In 2010.  so far 6 Republican US Senators are retiring.
1)Mel Martinez-FL- retired and resigned. lReplacement- LeMieux-R is care taker likely to be replaced by Charlie Crist-R assuming he wins the nomination. otherwise- FL is a tossup with Republican Lean due to 2010 wave.
2)Sam Brownback-KS running for Governor.  Replaced by Republican Jerry Moran-R or Todd Tiahrt- Democrats are not contesting this seat.
3)Jim Bunning-KY- would have lost had he ran again.  Race is competitive but Republicans are favored to hold on.
4)Kit Bond-MO- would have won re-election had he ran again. likely to be replaced by DEM Robin Carnahan- MO will be a DEM pickup.
5)Judd Gregg-NH- would have won re-election had he ran again. likely to be replaced by REP Kelly Ayotte- assuming she wins the GOP primary.
6)George Voinovich-OH- would have won re-election had he ran again. Race is a pure tossup between Fisher-D vs Portman-R.
On the Democratic Side.
1)Chris Dodd-CT- retired rather than face a tough re-election campaign- Likely to be replaced by Richard Bluemanthal-D
2)Ted Kaufman-DE- appointed to replaced Joe Biden- elected VP. retiring. assuming Beau Biden runs. Biden vs Castle matchup is tossup- with an edge to Biden.
3)Rolland Burris-IL- appointed to replace Barack Obama- elected President- retiring. Democrat Alexi Giannoulias is favored to hold on to seat.
4)Byron Dorgan-ND- retiring- would have been a shoe in had he ran again. will be replaced by Republican John Hoevan.
We trade MO with ND.
Appointed US Senators Bennett-CO and Gillibrand-NY are running in 2010. Gillibrand-NY is favored to win. Bennett-CO is probally going to lose.
