Conservatives Have Won Nothing. You Read It Right. NOTHING.
It has come to this, I’m afraid. We need to keep our perspective. Conservatives have won nothing. Nothing. Ken Buck you say? Sharron Angle? Mike Lee? Pat Toomey? Marco Rubio? Joe Miller? Rand Paul? Nikki Haley? Here, pay attention: they are all candidates. Yes, yes — we won primaries. Contrary to popular opinion that conservatives wanted a purge of party, we instead played smartly — | Read More »
Toomey comfortably ahead, says two (and a half) polls
Good afternoon. My life gets much easier when polls agree, and that’s the state of the race for the Senate in Pennsylvania. We have two polls out directly comparing Republican Pat Toomey and Democrat Joe Sestak, as well as a poll on the Governor’s race. All three favor Pat Toomey by a healthy margin.
Pat Toomey on the wasteful and extravagant spending of Dems’ extreme agenda
Our national strength does not come from bailouts and government spending. It comes from a free enterprise system and the hard-working honest citizens who make it run. — Pat Toomey In this week’s Weekly Republican address, Republican Senate candidate and former Representative Pat Toomey talks about the wasteful and extravagant spending of the Democrats’ extreme agenda. Toomey succinctly lays out the problem Obama and the | Read More »

Corbett steady as Toomey and Sestak joust
From Unlikely Voter: While the Pennsylvania Senate race has lived up to my expectations of volatility (Rasmussen has swing from Pat Toomey +8 to Joe Sestak +4 back to Toomey +6 most recently), the race for Governor has been pretty boring. No matter how many times this race gets polled, Republican Tom Corbett defies the recent partisan trend of Pennsylvania and consistently leads Democrat Dan | Read More »
Rasmussen updates on Sestak/Toomey
We’re in for the long haul in the Pennsylvania Senate race, because I honestly do expect this one to be in the toss-up range from now to Election Day, but that doesn’t mean we don’t get to check in on the polls obsessively the whole time looking for clues. Today: Rasmussen updates on the race.
Le Affaire Sestak: It’s the he-campaigned-on-it, stupid.
(H/T: Hot Air Headlines) I refuse to believe that Eric Alterman is dumb enough to not know the answer to the questions: Why in the world did he go blabbing about it? What did he possibly think he had to gain? …if only because his essay* rather conspicuously danced around even trying to work out a rationale – which is odd, because said rationale is | Read More »
Today in Washington – May 19, 2010
Elites in Washington are looking over their shoulders today. There is a new Scarlet Letter in America and it is the Scarlet Letter “I” for incumbent. If you are a Senate candidate running for re-election or a member of the House, both Republican and Democrat, you are nervous that the people of America will kick you out of office because you are part of the problem. Rand Paul, | Read More »

How does Sestak match up against Toomey?
Thanks to Arlen Specter’s collapse, it’s now more than academic to see how Joe Sestak matches up against Pat Toomey in the Pennsylvania Senate rate. So, on to Rasmussen’s poll from the 6th.
Rasmussen: Sestak/Specter 47/42.
Nobody loves a turncoat. Congressman Joe Sestak has moved ahead of incumbent Arlen Specter in their Senate primary match-up with just over a week left before Pennsylvania Democrats go to the polls to pick their nominee. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely Democratic Primary voters in the state shows Sestak earning 47% of the vote while Specter picks up 42%. This marks the | Read More »
DSCC spends netroots money… against netroots.
We already knew that the DSCC had dropped $1 million on keeping the netroot’s candidate down in Ohio: now comes word that they’re doing something similar in Pennsylvania. The DSCC is spending a significant amount of money to ensure a former GOP Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) wins his May 18 primary, sources with knowledge of the move tell Hotline OnCall. One source said the DSCC | Read More »
