Seats that are in no danger of going Republican

Thanks for the Votemaster for the pointer to this minor but amusing political side-note. Apparently, Rep. Peter Welch of VT is popular enough that the Republicans didn't bother to officially nominate anyone against him. A band of Democrats got together to write him in for the Republican ballot in the primary, and actual Republican turnout was so low that he won that, as well as the Democratic nomination. So he'll be running against himself in November...
