Cotton’s not gaining on Pryor, Why?
This is one of the most important Senate races in 2014. Mark Pryor, the leader of the “we voted for it, but we didn’t really like it,” group of panicked Democratic Senate candidates running from ObamaCare is worried. This race is one where the Red State Strategy demands a victory. Returning Pryor as Arkansas’ lone Democrat senator could mean that the Republicans would not take | Read More »

If he’s going down, we should turn to someone with new fresh ideas. That may be the thinking of conservative voters in Kentucky when it comes to the Senate race and Mitch McConnell.

Senate Elections 2014, PLEASE COMMENT
Here on Red State, I have been reading many comments about the Senate Elections in 2014.
