2022 Midterm Primary, General and Special Elections - April/ May Edition

The stakes are high for control of the house and senate, state legislatures, governorships. The 2022 midterms elections will be the most consequential of our lifetime and for our planet.

In honor of Mother Earth, here are some key senate races whose Democratic contenders support legislation that address the climate crisis:

  • Congresswoman Val Demings is looking to unseat Republican Senator Marco Rubio and make Florida great again.
  • A judge will decide if former Congresswoman Abby Finkenauer will face incumbent Senator Chuck Grassley. She is the favorite in a crowded Democratic primary in Iowa.
  • Charles Booker of Kentucky is back in the race. This time he is challenging incumbent Senator Rand Paul after narrowly losing his primary bid last year to Democrat Amy McGrath.
  • Former State Supreme Court Chief Justice Cheri Beasley is running to succeed retiring Republican Senator Richard Burr of North Carolina.
  • Congressman Peter Welch is vying to replace retiring Senator Patrick J. Leahy of Vermont.
  • Lucas Kunce of Missouri is hoping to replace retiring GOP Sen. Roy Blunt.
