This ad about Terry McAuliffe absolutely has to get back up on the air.
I don’t care what people have to spend: do it.

Well, that would have to be the alternative explanation to what’s apparently happening, which is that the governor’s race is tightening in Virginia again. Cuccinelli/McAuliffe went from 42/48 in August’s Q-Poll to 41/44 now. The poll indicates McAuliffe, the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, at 44% among likely commonwealth voters, with Cuccinelli at 41%. The three point margin for McAuliffe, who lost a | Read More »
Here we go again with Public Policy Polling. They did a poll for the League of Conservation Voters on the 2013 race for Governor in Virginia, and the electorate predicted by PPP is a strange one.
You see, it doesn’t look like Virginia.Read More »
Louisiana is a great state. Home to Bourbon Street, jazz, and perhaps most importantly, the antics of the Robertsons of Duck Dynasty fame. On a less positive note the state is currently the home of the nation’s highest rate of births to unwed mothers, currently at 54% of all births. Sadly, the rate has exceeded 50% for years. Let’s imagine that many of those babies | Read More »
New Mexico Attorney General (aka Aspiring Governor) Gary King stated earlier this year, if documents make there way to his office and they are not prohibited from release to the public by state law, then they are a public record subject to the normal Inspection of Public Record Act (IPRA). Explaining his office’s procedures on New Mexico in Focus AG Gary King said, “I tell | Read More »
At this point the failures and false promises of Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe’s electric car company, GreenTech, have been well documented.
For those who need a refresher, Clinton fundraiser and party insider McAuliffe re-christened himself a ‘Virginia businessman’ in his second quest for the Old Dominion governorship and touted several supposed job-creating ventures on the campaign trail, one being a wood pellet firm that has yet to become operational, and another was GreenTech Automotive, which he pledged would create thousands of jobs.
First, it was revealed that those promised jobs were to be created in Mississippi, not Virginia. Then, McAuliffe was caught fibbing about why the company chose to locate outside the state, claiming Virginia authorities had rejected their application before it was made clear that GreenTech had never completed its application materials. Then the revelation that Virginia officials were concerned that the company was “a visa-for-sale scheme” given its lack of a credible business plan and utilization of the EB-5 funding mechanism, which hands out U.S. visas to foreign investors (more on this later).
Eventually, it came out that McAuliffe had resigned from GreenTech in December 2012 despite continuing to use his role with the company as a key talking point as he campaigned around Virginia.Read More »
In a column earlier this month on May 5th, Milan Simonich vehemently attacked Governor Susana Martinez as an inadequate leader and self-serving person without many accomplishments. His attacks went from claims about lack of job creation to Martinez statement that she had balanced the state budget, which he brushed aside as unimportant because ‘the state Constitution requires a balanced budget…” These attacks on Gov. Martinez | Read More »

As explained in yesterday’s article Gov. Susana Martinez has said she will sign the bill if it reaches her table. The bill may be found here. Eight Republicans joined the Democrats | Read More »
What is Governor Susana Martinez thinking? SANTA FE — Gov. Susana Martinez, a Republican who who has courted the pro-gun vote, said Monday that she supports a compromise bill that would require background checks on people who buy guns at gun shows. Asked by a reporter about House Bill 77, which passed the House Judiciary Committee Friday on a bi-partisan vote, Martinez said, “I think | Read More »
KU professor Stephen Ware: “This violates basic equality among citizens, the principle of one-person, one-vote. The current system elevates one small group and treats everyone else like second-class citizens.” The Kansas judicial selection model is unlike any other state. Like many states, Kansas uses the elitist, undemocratic “Missouri system,” where law-degree-holders (not necessarily the same thing as those who know more about the law) have far more | Read More »
So we got slobber knocked at the national level. We want to change that but sit back and ponder what went wrong instead of what went right. We have 30 governors of 30 states and that’s a heck of start for 2014. As conservatives in these states we need to push for 4 things: 1. Drug testing for welfare benefits 2. Stop collecting union dues | Read More »
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com I still don’t think it’s going to happen, Save Jerseyans. I’m not even sure that I’d want it to happen. But history often makes the man, and this could be Chris Christie’s time. All indicators (published and whispered) suggest he’s at least in the “final four” of veepstakes contenders; possibly better than that because I firmly believe Tim Pawlenty’s name | Read More »
By Charles Measley | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com I enjoy signing up to Democrat e-mail newsletters, Save Jerseyans; it gives you perspective as to what their upcoming attacks and extremist proposals will look like. Yesterday morning, Barack Obama’s New Jersey campaign sent out an e-mail saying that Gov. Chris Christie is on Romney’s short list for VP (I hope he is!) and that our Governor’s name has recently | Read More »
If something happens once, it’s probably a fluke. Twice, might be a coincidence. Seventeen times? Well, that might be worth studying.
On Friday, Examiner.com published an analysis of the unemployment rate in the seventeen states that elected new Republican governors in 2010, noting that every single one of these states had seen an improvement in their jobs rate…Read More »
By Matt Rooney | Cross-posted at SaveJersey.com Is there something in the water up there? Governor Chris Christie may’ve accrued 5M+ YouTube views, Save Jerseyans, but you can’t truly be considered a modern American pop culture icon until you’re featured on TMZ.com. Congrats, Big Guy… you’ve arrived! Allegedly, he went toe-to-toe with a man on the [in]famous Seaside Heights Boardwalk last night and put the MTV ‘Jersey | Read More »
