NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- It's politics, as well as stocks, that will have Jim Cramer's attention next week. He told the viewers of his "Mad Money" TV show Friday that next week's game plan is jammed packed.

Cramer said perhaps the most important event for stocks next week is the special election in Massachusetts on Tuesday. He said a Republican win in the Senate would be a huge win for the bank and oil stocks, not to mention health care and the drug makers.

Next week will also bring a litany of earnings from the banks, with everyone from CitiGroup (C) to Goldman Sachs (GS) to Capital One (COF) reporting. Cramer said he expects the group to be subdued in its comments given the current climate in Washington, and he's not looking for anything spectacular.

Also reporting next week are the beginnings of the tech sector. Cramer said he's watching Seagate (STX) and Skyworks Solutions (SWKS) for good news, but IBM (IBM) will be his favorite for the week.

Cramer said he'll also be watching railroads CSX (CSX) and Union Pacific (UNP) for a read on the health of the economy. And he'll be watching Coach (COH) for a read on retail.

Cramer said Starbucks (SBUX) is a buy under $22 a share ahead of their earnings, and earnings from Johnson Controls (JCI), a stock, which he owns for his charitable trust, Action Alerts PLUS and Schlumberger (SLB) should also be bullish.

Finally, Cramer said the IPO of Warren Buffett's Symetra Financial should also be a big winner next week. He told viewers to get in on the IPO if they can.
