1: I'm not sure without more conversation context. This is probably figurative, like a firing from a company, a falling from favor, or being kicked out of a group. I'm not sure about the other part. 2: The implied end of the sentence is, "there are two seats up (for reelection)." Stated more directly, there are two elected positions (seats) that will be voted for on November 7th.
