(Bloomberg) -- Here are the key dates ahead in the 2022 midterm elections, as Democrats try to hold onto and even expand razor-thin majorities in the US House and Senate and Republicans weigh the influence of former President Donald Trump.

Most Read from Bloomberg

Aug. 9 — Wisconsin, Connecticut, Minnesota and Vermont

  • Wisconsin — Republican Senator Ron Johnson is considered one of the most endangered Republican incumbents. The list of Democrats vying to replace him shrunk after Alex Lasry, an executive with the NBA Milwaukee Bucks and son of team owner Marc Lasry, a venture capitalist, as well as State Treasurer Sarah Godlewski, have dropped out of the race and endorsed Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes. Democratic Governor Tony Evers barely won in 2018 and will have a tough battle for re-election in a year that is favoring Republicans. Rebecca Kleefisch, a former lieutenant governor, is favored to win the GOP nomination.

  • Vermont — Representative Peter Welch holds an early lead for the Democratic nomination to fill the seat of retiring Senator Patrick Leahy.

Aug. 13 — Hawaii

Aug. 16 — Wyoming, Alaska

  • Alaska — The single House race in Alaska, to replace the late Don Young, features a possible comeback for 2008 vice presidential nominee and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, who is hoping the political brand she pioneered will return her to office. Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski is facing a primary challenge by Kelly Tshibaka, who was endorsed by Trump because of Murkowski's vote to convict him in his second impeachment trial.

Aug. 23 — Florida, New York

Sept. 6 — Massachusetts

  • Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey has opened up a wide lead in the Democratic primary for governor and is favored to succeed retiring Republican Governor Charlie Baker.

Sept. 13 — Delaware, New Hampshire, Rhode Island

Nov. 8

(Updates with focus shifting to next race.)
