To the Senate GOP Leadership, There Ain’t Nothing Like Having Someone with 100% Name ID Who Can’t Win a Primary Givin’ Them Advice
There is a pattern shaping up with Mitch McConnell’s increasingly feckless leadership in the United States Senate Republican Conference. Judd Gregg bails to go work for Obama only to return. Mitch McConnell has him as a “counsel” to the Senate GOP. Bob Bennett, about to be thrown out of office by the Republican voters of Utah, is a “counsel” to the Senate GOP. Today, Mitch | Read More »
GOP Does Not Want A Black Man In The Senate
It is starting to get really disgusting. First, the GOP said it needed diversity and chose the orange Charlie Crist over the Latino, Marco Rubio. Then the GOP said it needed to do better outreach in the black community, so it ignored Michael Williams in Texas and tried to find a rich white guy to run for the Senate. Now that Kay Bailey Hutchison has | Read More »
Will Kay Bailey Hutchison Now Leave Washington?
Governor Rick Perry delivered a crushing blow to Kay Bailey Hutchison in the Texas GOP primary tonight. Senator Hutchison never gave a compelling reason to turn out Texas’s longest serving governor other than that it was her turn. The selfishness in Hutchison’s campaign rubbed Texas voters the wrong way and the disastrous campaign that ensued did her no favors. Remarkably, Texas’s longest serving governor was | Read More »
Rick v. Kay
Great write up by Brad Jackson about this race. In the old west, two fierce rivals would gather on opposite ends of a dusty street, itchy trigger fingers at the ready. Whoever was the faster, more accurate shooter won, generally with grave consequences for the loser. There aren’t many old west-style dusty streets left in Texas these days, but there is a showdown nonetheless in | Read More »
For Kay Bailey Hutchison, Staying in Washington to Fight Health Care Means Expediting its Passage
Kay Bailey Hutchison, much maligned for campaigning in Texas during the health care debate, boldly announced that she would go to Washington and stay there to fight health care and kill it dead. Instead, today she accelerated it getting to the Senate floor in a bit of Senate gamesmanship. Harry Reid decided to rush the Defense Appropriations bill to the floor of the Senate. He | Read More »
BREAKING: Kay Bailey Hutchison Will Not Resign
I am hearing that Senator Hutchison has decided not to resign from the United States Senate to pursue her bid for Governor of Texas. A statement is coming shortly. My understanding is that she will pursue the race for Governor still, but I’m told this is a recognition that she probably can’t make it out of the primary. I’m told a statement is forthcoming.

Texas Should Put Michael Williams in the Senate
Texans have an outstanding opportunity in the coming year to make a greater impact on the national stage than any other state. Texas Railroad Commissioner Michael Williams, an African American who happens to be an outstanding, uncompromising conservative, will on the ballot for the United States Senate. There are a number of good men running for the Senate in Texas, and most are varying degrees | Read More »
Is Kay Bailey Hutchison the Republican Diane Feinstein?
Diane Feinstein is notorious for supporting greater funding for China and cooperation with Chicom military authorities because, in part, her husband makes millions of dollars dealing with China. It’s not just China. Feinstein has made out like a bandit from the Iraq War too. As chairperson and ranking member of the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee (MILCON) from 2001 through the end of 2005, Feinstein supervised | Read More »
No, John, Kay Is Not Acceptable
John McCain, the buzz is that Kay Bailey Hutchison could be your pick. As we said earlier, a pro-choice candidate is unacceptable. Likewise, I know for damn certain that Kay Bailey Hutchison has repeatedly barred conservative staffers from policy meetings in the Senate. John, I like KBH. She blogs here at RedState. She’d be a good governor of Texas. She is not Veep material.
