Indiana Tea Party Candidates Win!

    Indiana currently has six Democrats and five Republicans in the US House and US Senate. It would be fantastic if they had eleven Republicans and zero Democrats after the 2010 General election, and while it is actually possible, I doubt we can be so lucky. I am writing this piece to counter some of the articles I have ran across this morning about how the | Read More »

    Coats Wins. Marlin Stutzman Becomes a Conservative Rock Star

    As most all of us, including me, predicted, Dan Coats did win the Indiana primary tonight.But it is worth noting a couple of things:1. Coats was held to about 40% of the vote. 60% voted against him.2. The man in second place who got pretty doggone close was Marlin Stutzman, the man everyone said would come in third.3.

    See What I Mean

    From the mailbag.From: Shawn MercerSubject: Indiana SenateDate: May 2, 2010 8:50:43 PM EDTTo: contact@redstate.comGood choice, Erick. Because nothing says Senatorial like a FARMER named “Stutzman.” What’s the matter, couldn’t find a “Klem Kadiddlehopper” running?This habit of yours to immediately assume some kind of inherent superiority in purists of mediocre backgrounds is getting annoying. Yeah, non-Washington, populism, wisdom of the people, I get it. But Dan | Read More »

    48 Hours. Have You Done What You Can?

    “Freedom means you take chances. Freedom means you fight. Let’s send Jim DeMint some reinforcements. Let’s send Jim DeMint Marlin Stutzman.”48 hours from now, people head to the polls in Indiana.Let me let you in on a little secret. When I endorse and support a candidate, I get a lot more angry emails than I do supportive. That’s the way it works.For the past several | Read More »

    Indiana, Here’s Your Choice

    A Senate Conservatives Fund poll shows 30% of Indiana voters are undecided as of Thursday night. Stutzman has the firmest support, but he and Hostettler are tied at 18% with Coats at 28%. There is still a lot of movement out there and Marlin having such firm support is a huge advantage for him.It might be time for the Hostettler people to stand with Jim | Read More »

    Republicans joust in Indiana

    Five men are seeking to be the Republican nominee in the Indiana Senate race to replace Evan Bayh. Three have a likely chance to win. From where is each getting his support?

    Another Reason to Support Marlin Stutzman

    The NRSC backed Arlen Specter and a year ago today Specter bolted.The NRSC backed Charlie Crist and today Charlie Crist is bolting.The NRSC is backing Dan Coats. Now, there is no way under the sun that Dan Coats would bolt the GOP. But can we trust the NRSC’s judgment that Coats is the best guy?Marlin Stutzman filed his financial disclosure. Coats has not.Marlin Stutzman has | Read More »

    How do things look in Indiana? [UPDATED]

    There is a rumor of a poll that went out in Indiana that was then not made public. Well, heck, I only call it a rumor because it happened but nobody wants to talk about it. My guess is, based on the Coats campaign’s behavior, the poll was either done for them or the results then given to them, making it an NRSC poll. That | Read More »

    Marlin Stutzman Wins Another One

    Across Indiana, Marlin Stutzman keeps winning straw poll votes among primary voters. The odds are that when the next polling comes out today or tomorrow, Marlin Stutzman is not going to be in first place. Dan Coats will.That is understandable. Coats has very high name recognition, having been elected repeatedly in the 80’s and 90’s.The trouble for Coats, however, is that momentum is clearly with | Read More »

    Should You Be Allowed Your Choice of Doctor?

    Should you be allowed your own choice in doctor? It seems like a no brainer.What about senior citizens? Should they be allowed to go to the doctor of their choice or keep the doctor they had before they crossed that magic threshold into senior citizenship?This is just common sense. Or at least it should be. But in 1995 the issue came before the United States | Read More »

    Coats Flees Indiana for Welcoming Arms of DC Lobbyists, as Democrats Cheer Him On

    The NRSC’s handpicked candidate in Indiana has hit some big obstacles on what he hoped would be a coronation in the GOP primary. After a disappointing fundraising haul, he’s refused to comply with Senate ethics rules by not submitting his financial disclosure forms. And now he’s now facing a surge by grassroots candidate Marlin Stutzman who has raised over $160,000 in just a few days | Read More »

    What is Dan Coats Hiding and Why is No One Paying Attention?

    One of the purposes of a primary is to get everything out there and let the voters of a party pick who they think is the best candidate to beat the Democrat.To do that, voters need the essential information on a candidate. But Dan Coats is hiding some very key essential information from the voters. He does not want it out there until after the | Read More »
