Update on House Races in 2014

    The following breakdown is by region. In order for the Republican to qualify for losing the seat, the presidential voting trend over six cycles has to favor the Democrat who ran and incorporates changes in both demographics and redistricting. Additionally, their (the Republican) victory in 2012 had to be rather close. For example, a district may favor the Democrat in voting trends, but if the | Read More »

    Things happening around the House, 07/15/2013.

    It’s been an interesting kind of day for House races. FL-18. Rumor has it that endangered Democrat Patrick Murphy went to talk to the House Republican leadership about switching parties. Unconfirmed, of course – the same rumor has it that Boehner turned Murphy down flat – but Patrick Murphy switched parties once already and there’s that entire possible linkage between Murphy and the voter fraud | Read More »

    An Election Night Primer on the House Races

    There’s been a lot of attention focused on the race for the Senate this year.  The House races, on the other hand, have become a forgotten footnote on the 2012 election map.  The reason is quite simple: Republicans will retain control of the House, irrespective of the outcome of the presidential election. At present, Republicans control 242 seats and Democrats control 193 seats (a few | Read More »

    The Next in Our Dump Upton Series

    “I have said at nearly every climate change hearing that for me I don’t dispute the science.  Right or wrong, the debate over the modeling and science appears to be over.” Guess who said that?  While those comments appear similar to the sentiments expressed by the likes of Al Gore, it was actually Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton who said it during a | Read More »

    Roger Williams (R CAND, TX CD-33) Pins the Tail on the Donkey

    Roger Williams, former Secretary of State under Rick Perry in Texas, is running for Congress to teach the young donkeys about the values of this country.  The newly-created 33rd district will cover the staunchly conservative suburbs of Fort Worth.  The Republican nominee will be a shoo-in for the general election, and it appears that we just might have our man in Roger Williams. Here is | Read More »

    Obama’s Summer of “Recovery”

       As the President and Vice-President run around the country touting their economic recovery plan- such that exists beyond spend and spend more- a look at the real economic numbers are in order.  It is increasingly obvious that this Administration is just ignorant of the stark facts or does not understand.  Given the alleged brain power on his economic team, I opt for ignorance.  Today, Joe Biden | Read More »

    Get off your buts…

    This is the most important congressional election in our lifetime.  Carl Rove (I am not a big fan of his) said today on Hanity that he projects a gain of 37 seats in the U.S. House this year.  That would leave the Republicans as the minority party. http://innovation.cqpolitics.com/atlas/house2010_rr  Congressional Quarterly has worse numbers (what else would you expect from CQ?) than that.  But what is | Read More »
