The Iowa Republican: Iowa Republicans have plenty of opportunity in the state Senate

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Now that some time has passed since the legislative session has
adjourned and the Republican gubernatorial primary has started to take
shape, it's time to start looking at legislative races in which
Republicans could pick up seats in both chambers in the 2010
elections. Today we delve into the State Senate. Currently,
Republicans hold 18 of the 50 seats in the State Senate. While only
half of those seats are up for election in 2010, 19 of those 25 seats
are currently held by Democrats. On one hand, it shows just how
lopsided the Democrat majority is in the Senate, but on the other
hand, it provides Iowa Republicans plenty of opportunity to pick up
seats in this chamber in the next election.
