The eight Senate seats most likely to flip in 2024

Senate Democrats are preparing to play defense in 2024 as they look to preserve their narrow majority in the upper chamber. The party is defending more than twice

as many seats as Republicans, and it’s already facing the possibility that some of its incumbents could retire, leaving open competitive seats.  There are also few

opportunities for Democrats to go on the offensive. Their best targets appear to be Florida and Texas, but both states have proved elusive for Democrats in recent years.

Here are eight Senate seats most likely to flip in 2024: Arizona The 2024 Senate race in Arizona is already shaping up to be a chaotic one: Sen. Kyrsten Sinema

(I-Ariz.) left the Democratic Party last year to become an Independent, and potential Democratic challengers, including Rep. Ruben Gallego (Ariz.), are eyeing her seat.

It’s not an ideal position for Democrats to be in as they look to stave off Republicans in a state that has only emerged as a battleground over the past few election

cycles.  The party has capitalized on appealing to both moderates and liberals in the state in recent years, and there’s at least some concern that the presence of both

Sinema and a Democrat in the race could divide that vote. Of course, Arizona Republicans have their own set of challenges to deal with. The party is at odds over its

direction, especially after a disappointing 2022 midterm election cycle. And one of their strongest potential recruits, former Gov. Doug Ducey, has said that he’s not considering

a Senate bid.
