RS at CPAC: Ted Cruz (R CAND, TX-SEN PRI).

    Ted Cruz is an old friend of RedState, of course: so we made sure to spend a couple of minutes talking about the race, how the ongoing redistricting dispute in Texas is making everybody’s elections difficult, and about CPAC generally.  And if you’re wondering why a Texas federal Senate race would be affected by redistricting, it’s because nobody really wants to have three primary dates | Read More »

    RS at CPAC: Rep. Sandy Adams (R, FL-24)

    Rep. Sandy Adams is a freshman legislator who is now running for re-election in the new FL-07 district (the maps were thoroughly shifted around as per the redistricting process in Florida); as a result, she’ll be running a contested primary with Rep. John Mica.  Sandy and I talked a bit about that race, as well as CPAC generally: Rep. Adams’ site is here. Moe Lane | Read More »

    RS at CPAC: Mia Love (R CAND, UT-04 PRI).

    We’ve spoken before: Mia is the mayor of Saratoga Springs in the new UT-04 district, and if she wins the primary she hopes to beat Jim Matheson in the general.  We spoke for a few minutes at CPAC: Mia’s site is here.  I don’t often say this, but if I lived in this district I’d be voting for her.  Which is no reflection on the | Read More »

    RS at CPAC: EJ Otero (R CAND, FL-11 PRI).

    Florida is volatile, this cycle: the combination of redistricting, the adding of two seats, and the status of Florida as a battleground state has caused for a lot of jockeying for positioning and seats.  It was pretty much a relief to speak to Col. E.J. Otero, USAF (Ret.), who simply wants to toss out the liberal Kathy Castor from the 11th district. As usual, we | Read More »

    RS at CPAC: Richard Mourdock (R CAND, IN-SEN PRI).

    This particular interview with Richard – we’ve talked with him before about the race – is of interest for another reason: Dave Weigel of Slate happened to reference it in his day-in-the-life article about Richard Mourdock at CPAC.  I don’t have any actual beef with Weigel’s reporting of anything that I was involved with – I did ask those questions, more or less, and I | Read More »

    RS at CPAC: Dan Bongino (R CAND, MD-SEN PRI).

    One of the interesting things about CPAC is, of course, that you can meet a whole lot of different candidates.  Below was my conversation with Dan Bongino, who is a former US Secret Service agent now running for Senate in Maryland against Ben Cardin – and if you don’t remember who Ben Cardin is, don’t worry.  Cardin’s an amazingly generic Senator who, on his good | Read More »

    Occupiers lose Battle of Wardman Park

    The basic premise of the Occupations, including Occupy DC, is that they, the “99%”, are not being heard in elections, so they must impose themselves on spaces where they are not welcome in order to force their message out. It’s a strategy reminiscent of George Lincoln Rockwell’s Phase One for the American Nazi Party, and I expect it to be just as ineffective at achieving | Read More »
