Missouri State Senators Mike Parson and Tom Dempsey Begin Obamacare Sellout
Missouri State Senators Mike Parson and Tom Dempsey are working toward a cave on Obamacare as best they can in Missouri. Senator Parson has filed SB 456, a “shell” of legislation into which multiple sources in and around the Missouri legislator expect they’ll put an expansion of Medicaid. Over 70% of Missourians voted to oppose implementation of Obamacare in a ballot initiative, but several people | Read More »
Do you want to repeal Obamacare?
Claire McCaskill. Bob Casey Jr. Sherrod Brown. Bill Nelson. Tammy Baldwin. Tim Kaine. These Senators and Senate candidates all support or even voted for Obamacare. Importantly, they all have Republican opponents who have a chance to win, thanks in part to the growing support for Mitt Romney in their swing states.
If we want to defeat Obamacare, it is critical that we elect Republicans to as many Senate seats as we can. The sad fact is that we can’t just get 50 and hope to win on a reconciliation tiebreak vote cast by Paul Ryan. You never know if the Democrats might find an anti-TEA party Republican who oppose the will of the voters and come to the other side. So we need to elect as many Republicans as we can.
That means no Republican left behind. George Allen, Tommy Thompson, Connie Mack, Josh Mandel, Tom Smith, and yes, Todd Akin are six key anti-Obamacare votes we need to elect, along with of course Mitt Romney.
We can only do this if we knock on doors, contact voters, and get out the vote for this important election. Please help.

If You Want to Repeal Obamacare, Support Akin & Mourdock
What has been overshadowed by pro-life remarks made by Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock is that the Republicans must take back the United States Senate to have a chance of repealing Obamacare. Even if Mitt Romney wins, it will be for naught if Harry Reid still controls the Senate. That is the reality. That is why Republicans must rally to two gentlemen who are committed | Read More »
Why Todd Akin Should Win
Senator McCaskill should be proud of Craig Woods. She said the following about whistleblowers back in 2009. “[w]histleblowers are our first line of defense against waste, fraud, and abuse. We’ve got to do everything possible to protect them,” McCaskill said then. “Whistle-blowers who raise the alarm about waste, fraud, and abuse should be commended — not punished,” McCaskill said in an April 26, 2012 press | Read More »
Todd Akin Can Win. The NRSC Will Cut Off Its Nose to Spite Its Face in Missouri.
In 2010, the National Republican Senatorial Committee spent a great deal of time and energy portraying conservatives as the reason the GOP did not take back the Senate. They blamed Jim DeMint for Sharon Angle’s win, though he chose not to supporter her in the primary. They blamed Jim DeMint and Sarah Palin for Christine O’Donnell’s win, though they endorsed a week before the primary | Read More »

The Con$ultant Cla$$
A few weeks ago I wrote this about the GOP’s consultant class: can I just say what a bunch of charlatans and grifters most GOP consultants are. We have all these GOP Super PACs sucking up millions and millions of dollars to help Mitt Romney and now in the summer lull? Nothing. But I bet some consultants are getting rich. It’s like the GOP consultant | Read More »
Let us not say “Au Revoir,” Russ Carnahan.
Let us instead say,”Good-bye.” The local CBS affiliate called Missouri’s First District Democratic primary race for William Lacy Clay, and I don’t think anybody can really dispute it. Which is a tragedy, for it means that I can no longer use this photo: As God is my witness, this is not a Photoshop. Open thread for election results. Moe Lane
How much longer can Claire McCaskill last in Missouri?
If you’re a Democrat, then the latest poll from Mason-Dixon should not be combined with alcohol and/or used in conjunction with heavy machinery: she’s not just losing. John Brunner beats her 52/41; Sarah Steelman, 49/42; and Todd Akin 49/44. And that’s registered voters. These are the kinds of numbers that you’d expect to see from a challenger; an incumbent that far underwater needs an exit | Read More »
RS Interview: Martin Baker (R CAND, MO-01 PRI).
While the showdown between rival Democratic incumbents Russ Carnahan and Lacy Clay – in what promises to be one of the most vicious internecine battles of the 2012 primary season – may be the most public news coming out of Missouri’s First District, it remains true that the seat will be contested in November by the Republicans. We spoke a couple of days ago with | Read More »
Steelman over 50% vs McCaskill in Missouri
I’m glad that we’re now starting to have a better idea of the shape of the Senate race, as we settle down on who the candidates are going to be, and how they’re polling against incumbents (or each other, in the case of open seats). Soon I will update my Senate projections with actual data. In the meantime, we’ve got the first Missouri Senate poll | Read More »
RS at CPAC: Sarah Steelman (R CAND, MO-SEN PRI).
Sarah Steelman is one of the candidates running for the Republican nomination for Senate in Missouri – which is, of course, a prime nomination to have, considering that sitting Senate Claire McCaskill is widely expected to be a prominent member of the next wave of Democratic politicians slated to die the political True Death for the greater glory of Obamacare. We spoke for a bit | Read More »
Paging the Missouri Tea Party: Here’s One to Primary
“She represents a +15 GOP district that voted for George Bush and John McCain for president by 63% and 62% respectively. ” She was elected in 1996, and is serving her 8th full term in Congress. She believes her mission in life is to solve world hunger—whether its through foreign aid or food stamps here in this country that we can no longer afford. But | Read More »
MO Secretary of State Robin Carnahan (D) cuts and runs.
It’s official: the last remaining ostensibly politically viable member of the once-powerful Carnahan dynasty has decided to not seek a third term. I say ‘ostensibly’ because it was actually unclear that Robin Carnahan was ever going to recover from her humiliating shellacking at the hands of Roy Blunt in last year’s MO-SEN race (13 points is pretty bad). And I say ‘last remaining’ because her | Read More »
Tech at Night: Claire McCaskill on a Net Neutrality leash, 4G LTE is amazing stuff, Internet censorship doesn’t work
Ah, Claire McCaskill. Her not particularly active Twitter account said this week that she wants to be careful about regulation of privacy online, lest those regulations cause us all to have “less access to amazing stuff.” True statement I think. Too bad she refused to stick to her guns on the radical left’s key policy, Net Neutrality. On that issue, McCaskill told MyDD government regulation | Read More »
