Democrats Face Funding Challenge For Senate Races As Support Dwindles

The Democrat Party will face difficult funding decisions in its bid to take over the Senate in the upcoming midterms.
Democrats will be defending 26 seats in the upper chamber in November, 10 of which are states that President Trump won in 2016.
In comparison, Republicans will only need to protect eight seats.
The Democrat Party has little resources to defend its minority, let alone support new candidates.

The party may instead choose to back incumbents such as Senators Heidi Heitkamp and Joe Manchin, who are considered the most vulnerable.
Generic ballot polls also show the Democrat’s lead has dwindled to just a six-point advantage over the GOP.
