Evan Feinberg in Pennsylvania
The Republican Primary in Pennsylvania is one month away. I have documented just how terrible Congressman Tim Murphy is. I’d like to encourage you to support his opponent, Evan Feinberg. Evan is endorsed by Senators Tom Coburn and Rand Paul. He is a solid conservative and a great fit for Tim Murphy’s district. Conservatives lost a primary with Don Manzullo’s defeat last week. What conservatives | Read More »
Returning an Obscure Congressman to Permanent Obscurity
He was elected in 2000, and is serving in his 6th term in Congress. He is pathetic on education issues and school choice reforms in particular. He voted in favor of No Child Left Behind, and earlier this year, was one of only 4 Republicans to oppose reinstating opportunity scholarships for poor children in D.C. He is a restrictor of free speech. He supported McCain-Feingold | Read More »
Who Can Help Pat Toomey?
Having driven Arlen Specter out of the party and now on the verge of winning Pennsylvania, we owe a great deal to Pat Toomey. Can any of you help? Toomey needs boots on the ground in Pennsylvania. With 15 days before the election, the more the merrier. If you are interested in heading to Pennsylvania to help Pat Toomey, email RedState@toomeyforsenate.com. They’ll have somebody monitoring | Read More »
Arlen Specter is no more. Hahahahahahaha. This makes the fourth person in a statewide race to lose after Barack Obama campaigned for him. Trey Grayson went down in flames to Rand Paul, who openly embraced the tea party label. Tim Burns lost the special election in PA-12, but will now run in the general election for November against the Democrat. It is important to note | Read More »
Election Results Open Thread
Today is a big primary day. I just got off the phone with Tim Burns. He says he feels confident, things look good on the ground, and the Critz campaign has a small election day presence. I’ll be on John King USA starting at 7pm ET on CNN tonight to talk about the election results as they come in. Feel free to tune in. Otherwise, | Read More »
Pick up a seat in Pennsylvania
The Democrats are fearful of losing the seat in Pennsylvania once held by John Murtha. Tim Burns is the man to do it. There is a money bomb ticking for him. He is under a tremendous assault from the left currently. He could use all the help we can give him.

The Abortion Gambit: Stupak’s Folly
“The Democrats can give all the cover they want to Stupak, but the Senate GOP will show the cover to be the fig leaf it is.” Credit where it is due: the Senate GOP has come up with a great strategy to combat talk of compromise on reconciliation. The Senate GOP will block any effort to strip abortion funding in reconciliation. This may get a | Read More »
The Model Candidate: Pat Toomey
When Joe Scarborough and I talk each week on the radio, we frequently mention that former Congressman Pat Toomey is the model candidate for the Republican Party. Though Pat Toomey is pro-life, his campaign focuses on jobs, business, regulation, and the free market. Back at the RedState Gathering in August (the next one will be announced very shortly), Pat Toomey gave me a copy of | Read More »
Tim Burns for Pennsylvania
“Part of the reason the debacle in NY-23 occurred is that the conferees made a decision in an almost total vacuum with respect to how activists in the district felt about the various candidates. We don’t have to let that happen here. Get on the horn and get involved.” The next major fight in the battle against the Obama agenda is the May 18th special | Read More »
Chris Carney (D-PA) Hints at Wanting Socialized Medicine In a Moment of Loosened Lips
Brian Faughnan noted the other day that up until this year Democrats have been pretty open that the “public option” was intended to be a back door into universal socialized healthcare. Barney Frank, too, has pretty strongly hinted at that. Up in Pennsylvania, Chris Carney, a liberal Democrat who tries his best to seem moderate, kind of sort of let slip in a town hall | Read More »
Has Arlen Specter Been Bribed?
Arlen Specter is, admittedly, the most unprincipled opportunist in Washington, but something sure seems fishy. Back in April after switching parties, Arlen Specter said, “I will not be an automatic 60th vote and I would illustrate that by my position on employees’ choice, also known as card check. I think it is a bad deal and I am opposed to it and would not vote | Read More »

Democrats Could Pick Up a Seat in PA
Not good for House Republicans. Rep. Jim Gerlach has told National Republican Congressional Committee officials that he is running for governor, a GOP source confirmed Tuesday, making his competitive southeastern Pennsylvania district a prime Democratic pick up opportunity in 2010. The Allentown Morning Call first reported that the four-term Republican has opted to run for governor, ensuring that his suburban Philadelphia 6th district seat will | Read More »
Why the NRSC and PAGOP Should Not Waste Time With Gerlach
Rumors abound that the Pennsylvania GOP and/or the NRSC are flirting with both Jim Gerlach and Tom Ridge. We know Tom Ridge cannot win in Pennsylvania again in a Republican Primary because of the changed dynamics and demographics from the last time he ran. But what of Jim Gerlach? The PAGOP and NRSC are flirting with him because Gerlach regularly wins re-election as a Republican | Read More »
If you live in Pennsylvania
There is a big call that will happen tonight among Pennsylvania Republican Party Executive Committee members. I’m hearing there will probably be over 100 people involved. If you know your local party chair, I encourage you to call that person and tell them to get behind Pat Toomey. The Politico is running a story today that suggests the PAGOP establishment and the NRSC are trying | Read More »
Is the NRSC Maneuvering to Push Tom Ridge?
Will the NRSC staff push former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge to get into the Pennsylvania primary against Pat Toomey? It would not surprise me to learn that they are leaning that way, convinced that Pat Toomey cannot win, but someone a close friend of George W. Bush and a pro-abort candidate can win. People seem to forget that Pat Toomey, while in Congress, regularly won | Read More »
