Democrats face growing list of swing-district retirements, dimming midterm prospects

On the Senate side, where both parties currently control 50 seats, the retirement burden is expected to fall more heavily on Republicans this cycle, with five members of the party already having announced their retirements. They include Sens. Patrick J. Toomey (R-Pa.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and Richard Burr (R-N.C.), whose seats could all provide pick up opportunities for Democrats. Another Republican up for reelection, Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, a state that Biden won, has not yet said whether he is running for reelection.
