US Senate Contest Heats up in Mid Georgia
On a chilly, first Friday in May 2013, Congressman Jack Kingston (R, GA-1) kicked up his 2014 run for the seat of retiring Senator Saxby Chambliss(R-GA). Kingston’s backdrop was the Macon Big House. This English Tudor house is now a museum, but in the early seventies the Allman Brothers Band settled there to refine a riffed-licked mix of southern bluesy rock. The day before Rep. | Read More »

Kentucky Progress: Did the Left Put A “Hit” On Senator McConnell

Mary Landrieu, D-La., is part of a diminishing number of Senate Democrats who have not endorsed same-sex marriage. That number is down to just nine among the Senate’s 53 Democrats and two independents who | Read More »
Another shameless power grab coming from Massachusetts Democrats?
As you may know, I spent some time in Massachusetts this year, working on some Congressional races, and it’s been an interesting time for me, seeing the differences (the many, many, many differences) between that state and my home state of Florida.
Both states have a legislature dominated by one party, but with wide variation in how much autonomous power the controlling party really has. When the Republicans who control the Florida House and Senate push their luck too far, the Florida press corps howl in protest and voters in even heavily-Republican districts tend to reject anything really outlandish (case in point: the failure of many of the constitutional amendments, which originated in the Legislature, on the ballot this year).
In contrast, in Massachusetts, when the Democrats try something nutty, it’s met with shrugs and mostly ignored as simply business as usual. At best, media outlets like the Boston Herald may cover a story here and there, but it rarely seems to slow down the Democrats’ appetite for abusing government power…
