The NRCC’s Big Board.
The NRCC has drawn up a map of all 435 Congressional Districts, separated them out by state, and linked each district to the website of either the incumbent Republican that represents it, or the Republican that will be challenging the incumbent Democrat in November. Note that in cases of contested primaries without an incumbent (like, say, FL-05′s) the NRCC is explicitly not taking sides by | Read More »
No, The Thumpin’ is/was not inevitable.
Stuart Rothenberg is having absolutely none of this preemptive excuse-making that the Democrats are starting to indulge in. You seem the conventional wisdom is now congealing into the notion that of course the Republicans were going to have a great year in 2010, and it was absolutely silly for anybody to think that it was ever in doubt that this would happen: …Indeed, on Monday’s | Read More »
Wait: I’ve seen this movie before. At the end of July 2006, I remember being… fairly optimistic about the Congressional elections. Oh, I knew that there were going to be problems. It was year Six of a Presidential administration, and the Other Side was kind of fired up. And, sure, the economy was slowing down a bit – we were all the way down to | Read More »
Tell me again of this administration’s awesome message discipline.
Joe Biden opens his mouth: “I don’t believe, the president doesn’t believe that the Tea Party is — is a racist organization. I don’t believe that,” Biden said. “Very conservative. Very different views on government and a whole lot of things. But it is not a racist organization.” (Via Outside the Beltway; H/t: Instapundit) If this seems surprising, it shouldn’t be. The NAACP has a | Read More »
NY Dem Donors Discover Elementary Self-Respect.
(H/T: Instapundit) A fascinating bit of trivia for people out there: if you’re a Democrat, and you go keep telling a group of folks- in this case, Wall Street and other wealthy New York Democratic donors – that they’re unmitigated scum who need to be drained of every drop of their dirty money if they want to avoid being lynched by an angry Mob led | Read More »
Ladies and Gentlemen, We Are The Cheetahs.
[This diary is my reporting on Tim Scott's Tuesday night victory party. I'm sorry that it's so late, but I had a medical board exam on Thursday and Friday that I had to travel to Atlanta, GA to take, and I just got back late Saturday night.] From 2010-06-27 From 2010-06-27 As many of you are aware, I recently wrote a diary titled, “Tim Scott | Read More »

Tim Scott MUST Win – This Is Not Negotiable!
Promoted from the diaries. -ed. OK – as many of you are aware, I recently wrote a diary about a congressional candidate from Charleston, SC (my hometown) by the name of Tim Scott. Tim Scott is running for Congress to represent the 1st district of SC in the US House of Representatives. The Republican Primary took place on June the 8th and Tim Scott won | Read More »

State of the Race: Steve Poizner (R CAND, CA-GOV).
Primary’s in a week: Steve’s in the homestretch. Steve’s site is here. Crossposted to Moe Lane.
My talk with Brian Walsh (NRCC).
Just to be clear, this is the Brian Walsh who is the political director of the NRCC, and not the Brian Walsh who is the communications director of the NRSC. We spoke for a bit on the recent past and the rapidly approaching future: To expand on the third question a bit: sites like Reverse the Vote also exist to assist the eventual Republican candidates | Read More »
But at least they have Obama!
There’s a lot of interesting stuff in this John Dickerson article on what last night’s results really mean, but this last paragraph is probably the one that needs to be most referenced: The night showed just how limited Obama’s political power is. He said he’d work all-out for Specter, but he didn’t campaign for the senator in the final days. That may have been a | Read More »
It’s going to hurt the Democrats quite a bit this election cycle: The one exception to this bad Democratic news is blacks. They continue to approve of the president at near-unanimous levels. But blacks midterm turnout is also traditionally low compared to white and older voters. Blacks were 13 percent of the vote in 2008. But blacks were only about 10 percent of the vote | Read More »
Len Britton Out With First Ad
Just released this morning, although I saw it last night on Len’s Facebook, is this new campaign spot for Len Britton. Len, as you should know from Moe’s post, is challenging Patrick Leahy as the presumptive GOP Candidate for US Senate here in Vermont. Len Britton is a good guy and I will be supporting him this fall in his run to defeat Patrick Leahy | Read More »
A Shot Across the Bow from the Bay State
Let’s cut right to the chase: Scott Brown’s resounding defeat of Martha Coakley demonstrates many things. Chief among these is the vulnerability of every Democrat in the current election year, the impotence of the Democrats’ current leader and sitting President to sway public opinion in any vital race (Corzine, Deeds, Coakley….), and the true unpopularity of the health care monstrosity the Democratic supermajority has been | Read More »
