Seat held by Dem. Sheldon Whitehouse. Barry Hinckley, a successful businessman, is the only Republican to declare so far, This is a long shot flip, but worth the effort because Whitehouse is so offensive, and not particularly popular at home.
Republican Candidate: Barry Hinckley, (R)
For a prior post on Hinckley, see A First Challenger for Sheldon Whitehouse.
Whitehouse is one of the most aggressive Democrats in the Senate, and a frequent focus here for his attacks on the Tea Party movement, and his successful push for a controversial judicial nominee. Here are some of my prior posts about Whitehouse:
