Could the Missouri Carnahan dynasty be at an end?

    It’s been a good week to be a Republican in Missouri.  Senator-elect Roy Blunt soundly defeated MO Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, beating her by 13 percentage points statewide, and winning every county in Missouri except St. Louis (city and county) and Jackson (Kansas City).  Republican candidates scored wins in most parts of the state except the Democrat strongholds mentioned above, where incumbents such as | Read More »

    In this post, we’ll begin with a review of the turn out numbers for Missouri from yesterday’s election and compare that to several prior election cycles.

    Support Vicky Hartzler in Missouri’s Fourth Congressional District

    Election Day is only seven days away. House Republican campaigns across the country are knocking on doors, making phone calls, and getting the message out. Many races are tightening. One of those is in Missouri’s Fourth Congressional District where Young Gun candidate Vicky Hartzler is taking on 34-year Democratic incumbent Rep. Ike Skelton. Vicky is an award-winning high school teacher, former state legislator, and runs | Read More »

    Run Robin, Run

    Robin Carnahan is clearly afraid of talking to radio hosts who will be less than coddling of her campaign. She has been avoiding going on one radio show in particular. KMOX host Mark Reardon has been trying to get the Senate Candidate onto his show for many months now. After a while, when reasoned attempts at scheduling an interview fail, what else is one to | Read More »

    The Postmortem on Robin Carnahan is Already Being Written

    The writing is on the wall for Missouri Democrats. Their chances of winning the Senate seat currently held by Republican Kit Bond certainly qualify for the “slim to none” category. This was recognized by national Democrats with the recent decision to cancel much of their reserved air space for advertising. A few weeks ago, Bill S had a great piece about Carnahan running an outdated | Read More »

    “All Catholics Are Pedophiles” — The Democrats’ Closing Argument

    This is not the first time the Democrats have gone this route in this election season. This may, however, be the most desperate attempt. And where Democrats are doing this in multiple places around the country, we can be sure they have hit on this as a theme within their world view. The theme, of course, being that all Catholics are pedophiles. This time, in | Read More »

    Nebraska & Missouri Races

       In the interest of time, I decided to dispense with Nebraska before discussing neighboring Missouri.  In the Cornhusker State, two words describe Democratic chances this year:  NO WAY!!  Incumbent Republican Governor Dave Heineman is up 43 points the polls over his opponent, Mike Meister.  With no Senate race, all three Republican incumbent representatives should win and fairly easily.  Perhaps the only race that might | Read More »

    Missouri updates.

    It’s been an interesting week for Missouri, so I thought that I’d look at the races that matter on the federal level (all of the Republican-held House seats in Missouri are pretty much safe at this point).  In order: MO-SEN: It would seem that Robin Carnahan’s desire to distance herself from the President is hurting her with a critical segment of Democratic voters: African-Americans, who | Read More »
