The race tightens in Maryland
There is more to life than the US Senate. In many states, control of the Governor’s office will have a critical role in the process of redistricting after the 2010 Census and reapportionment of US House seats. So today we look at the Maryland Governor’s race as polled by Rasmussen.
Audio: Florida Indecision 2010 (Part One)
In what I hope to be a regular feature, I would like to introduce: Florida Indecision 2010 (Part One) My first guest is Moe Lane, who talks with me about George LeMieux and Kendrick Meek (the Democratic front runner). In the first part, we talk about if George Lemieux is going to be a spoiler in this race. Then we talk about if Marco Rubio | Read More »
Meanwhile, in Missouri, Robin Carnahan is probably *hoping for* the Rochester treatment.
A bit earlier today, Moe described how Barack Obama is pretending that Alexi Giannoulias, the Democrat Senatorial candidate from IL, does not exist. But on the Missouri side of the river, the presumptive Democrat candidate for Kit Bond’s Senate seat, MO Sec’y of State Robin Carnahan may be wishing for a similar treatment. Just last month, the POTUS appeared in the St. Louis area to promote the | Read More »

Thompson declines and so do Wisconsin Republican hopes
Tommy Thompson was going to give Russ Feingold a tough race, but he decided not to run. How are Republicans doing now to challenge the three term incumbent? Rasmussen has a look.
LeMieux To Endorse Rubio?
Now wouldn’t this just make my day (via Hot Air): LeMieux, who ran Crist’s past campaigns, served as his chief of staff at one point and has largely been seen as Crist’s top political advisor, now has his own political career to consider. Appointed to replace ex-Sen. Mel Martinez (R) last year, LeMieux is said to be taking a serious look at challenging Sen. Bill | Read More »
Articulating Restraint: Conservative Victory & Joe Scarborough
The best example of the type of conservative thinker we need is Joe Scarborough. He has consistently demonstrated his ability to articulate conservative views and to engage both sides in constructive dialogue. Even rarer to find, he has been intellectually consistent. Joe was conservative in 1994 when it was cool and he was elected to Congress. Joe was conservative in 2004 when it wasn’t cool to criticize the big spending GOP. Joe is conservative now in 2010 and is still talking about a cautious foreign policy, sustainable domestic spending, and calmer rhetoric. His ideas about our politicians’ lack of restraint in these three areas should be the playbook for how we articulate conservative views and sell them to the American people.

Interview with Senate Candidate Mike Lee
A friend of mine posted the following interview with State Senate Candidate Mike Lee on www.delegateutah.com. I thought folks here would enjoy it. I had an opportunity to talk with Mike Lee, a candidate for the United States Senate Seat currently occupied by Bob Bennett. I appreciate the time he was willing to take to speak with me. I found him to be very willing | Read More »
The Rutledge Conundrum
When deciding to run for public office, ones background should be taken into careful consideration. If you had the following credentials, what statewide office would you consider running for: 24 years experience practicing law working in variety of experiences in small business law, criminal defense, felony prosecution in a District Attorney’s office, business litigation, civil rights litigation, and health care litigation; and currently stand firm | Read More »
American’s Agree: We Cannot Trust the Government. Now what?
A recent Pew poll finds that 80% of Americans distrust the government. That would seem to be a revelation, but it should not be surprising. Those that interpret the Pew poll results as a rebuke of this administration alone are mistaken. The question political strategists on both sides are asking themselves today is: “how can this sentiment translate into a wining electoral strategy?” The key | Read More »
Pennsylvania Special: Replacing Jack Murtha
[UPDATE, Moe Lane: With Neil's permission I'm annotating this with a link to Tim Burns' moneybomb. Tim's less than four grand away from hitting his original goal of $50K; you can watch his RS CPAC interview here.] Public Policy Polling looked into the special election in Pennsylvania’s 12th Congressional District, the seat vacated by the late Jack Murtha.

VIDEO: Marco Rubio On Obama Terrorism Policy
This is why I love, LOVE Marco Rubio (Via The Other McCain):
Don’t write Perry onto the Presidential ticket yet
Do southerners do well in Presidential elections? Two of the last three Democrats to win were southern Governors, and the last two Republicans to win were Texans. That’s all some need to pencil in Rick Perry, two and a half term successor to George W. Bush, as a likely Republican nominee in 2012. The latest from Rasmussen suggests his run for a third full term | Read More »
By Request: McCain v Hayworth
It’s slightly old but I know people are interested in this race, so an actual Rasmussen primary poll between Republicans JD Hayworth and John McCain. McCain leads, but is he doing well?
2010 Candidate Interview: Ken Holt (R-MD)
Investment executive and former State Delegate Ken Holt is a Republican candidate for Baltimore County Executive. According to his website, “His years in the financial industry have given him the important background necessary to manage a large municipal government during a period of budget restraint and economic recession.” I was interested in learning more about Mr. Holt so asked him if he was interested in | Read More »
