The eight term Democrat and pal of Pelosi, Chet Edwards, is facing involuntary retirement. Two Republican candidates are in a runoff to face Edwards in TX CD 17 . They are Rob Curnock and Bill Flores. Curnock, with limited funding, lost to Chet Edwards in 2008. Flores is in the energy business. He has put a good bit of personal money into his campaign. Curnock is media savvy and seems to have a grassroots network. He needs cash.
Flores pulled a few thousand more votes in the March 2nd primary (five contenders) at 33% to 29% for Curnock. The runoff is set for April 13th.
For Congressman Pete Sessions and the NRCC: When the primary runoff is over, promote one of these men. Don’t mess this up. For the love of Pete (yikes) this thing is in your back yard.
These are two good candidates. The district is heavily Republican and went for McCain in ’08, 67-33. Edwards is not in step with his constituents. He has a ZERO rating from NRLC. Big labor loves Edwards. The voters in 17 are ready for a conservative and they remember Speaker Pelosi putting Edwards forth as a shortlister for Obama’s VP. Yes sir, Congressman, your bond with Pelosi is top of mind.
So, Chet, start writing letters for your staffers. And no . . . your no vote on Obamacare will not save you. Not to worry, you will make a fine lobbyist for NARAL.

This smear against Ted Cruz is gross, meant to destroy, and, oh by the way, false. Like yesterday’s post, this one is about a liberal member of the press smearing Cruz with a deliberately misleading characterization: If you | Read More »

New Hampshire primary voters are notorious for making up their minds who they are going to vote for late — often just days or hours before their ballot is cast. In an interesting article at WBUR, Boston’s NPR news station, Frank Perullo and Michael McLaughlin of The Novus Group, tell us that “younger, middle and upper-middle class, establishment GOP women may swing this election.”
