Swing-state GOP senators rethinking reelection strategies as impeachment looms

Senate Republicans facing tough reelection battles are recalculating their campaign strategies amid the push from Democrats to impeach President Trump.

Republicans hold the majority in the upper chamber by two seats and of the 35 seats contested in 2020, Republicans hold 23 and four of their members are in toss-up races.

Senate Democrats, frustrated by the number of Trump judicial and administration appointments Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has guided through upper chamber confirmation votes, have zeroed in on these vulnerable Republican members as part of their 2020 election strategy to take back the Senate.

Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins, running for her fifth term, split from her party’s defense of the president and criticized him over asking China to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.
