Eh I don't think Schumer will be that hard to re-elect, I mean hes the third in line democrat in the Senate. Hes been a senator in New York since 1999, I think they'll have the money for her.

Also as a point for conservatives to vote for her (well some), she voted against the bailout a big plus for some. She's somewhat fiscally conservative more than other democrats, so if she gets out enough in New York the next year she could gain popularity.
