A total of 44 Democrats and 50 Republicans are up for reelection, with six toss-up seats available.

Democrats are projected to win one of two Senate seats in play for Minnesota, as well as Washington, California, New Mexico, Hawaii, New York, Virginia, Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Delaware and Maryland, according to politics site and polling data aggregator Real Clear Politics.

Polling data shows Democrats are also likely to win in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The other seat for Minnesota, as well as seats for Wisconsin, Michigan and New Jersey, are also leaning Democrat.

Republicans are projected to win in Utah, Wyoming, Nebraska and one of two seats in play for Mississippi. Republicans are also likely to win the other seat for Mississippi, as well as for North Dakota, while Texas and Tennessee are leaning Republican.

If Democrats win the majority in the Senate, they could possibly move to impeach Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and President Donald Trump.

Only a total 19 federal officials have been impeached in U.S. history: a senator, a cabinet secretary, 15 judges and two presidents. The first president to be impeached was Andrew Johnson in 1868 after he dismissed Edwin M. Stanton as secretary of war.

President Bill Clinton was impeached in 1998 on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice in the wake of his affair with a White House intern.
