    Top Dem Bowing Out for Good? Red-Leaning State Looks Increasingly Vulnerable as Senator Plans Next Move

    Published on

    A crucial Democratic senator who holds sway over the party’s majority has said she won’t run for reelection in 2024.

    In an appearance with “Meet the Press” on Sunday, Montana Sen. Jon Tester did not commit to running.

    Tester was adamant that he hadn’t decided whether to run for a fourth term.

    Regarding his future plans, Tester stated, “It’ll be a discussion that I’ll have with my family over the holidays,” He also predicted his chances of winning the election should he decide to run.

    In the event that he highlighted what he sees as a track record of bipartisan victories, Tester predicted that he would win a 2024 election.

    In the unlikely event that Tester decides not to seek reelection, Republicans would have a good chance of winning his seat.

    One of the reddest states in the union is Montana, where former President Donald Trump won by more than 16% in the 2020 election.

    In a year in which Democrats overwhelmingly won, Tester narrowly prevailed in his bid for re-election as a two-term incumbent with less than 4% of the vote.

    In an effort to hold onto a Senate seat in the very conservative state of Montana, it’s feasible that Democrats in that state will turn to former governor Steve Bullock, who was elected to statewide office as a Democrat.

    The impending retirement of Tester would make the 2024 race even more difficult for Democrats, who already have a difficult national Senate map.

    According to The Washington Post, Democrats plan to keep 23 Senate seats in their control in the upcoming election.

    Less than half of the Democrats’ task, or 11 seats, will be defended by the GOP.

    Democrats plan to defend a number of seats in red states like West Virginia, Montana, and Ohio.

    Other Democratic senators who are up for re-election in battleground states like Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Wisconsin are vulnerable candidates.

    In the Senate, Democrats hold a slim majority of 50 senators, including three independents who join their caucus.

    Kyrsten Sinema, a senator from Arizona, said last week that she was leaving the Democratic Party, even though she would still caucus with them.
