RS Interview: Gov. John Kasich (R, OH).

    As it happens, this Wall Street Journal article discussing Ohio’s (among other states’) credit upgrade by Standard & Poor – and Ohio’s fairly dramatic drop in unemployment in a year – came out the same day that I spoke with Governor Kasich about his budget and labor union reform successes.  The latter (SB5, which was in many ways an even stronger reform package than Wisconsin’s) | Read More »

    RS Gathering 2011: Adam Hasner (R CAND, FL-SEN PRIMARY).

    Adam Hasner was one of our speakers at the RedState Gathering, and he was available for a few moments for comments.  You may recognize the backdrop; it’s from the Teddy Roosevelt painting, and I’d like to note that I think that campaigns looking for nice backgrounds from which to do their videos could do worse than use Steve Penley’s stuff. Adam’s site is here.  I | Read More »

    RS Gathering: Tim Scott (R, SC-01).

    Tim Scott was elected last year on a general reform slate in South Carolina: he was one of the candidates that we took an interest in, so it was great that he got to speak with our readers Friday night.  Afterward, we spoke with Tim briefly:   Sound was a little off at first: we had some motivated listeners Friday night.

    RS Gathering 2011: Nikki Haley.

    As always, we try to take the time to talk briefly with some of the candidates and politicians that attend the RedState Gathering.  As Governor Halley was so kind as to host us this year, I thought that I’d start with her. Governor Haley has of course been long a friend of the site, and it was a pleasure to have her welcome us to | Read More »

    This day. This moment.

    If you don’t know how RedState started seven years ago, here’s the story. It’s a tale of a few guys with a few dollars and a few basic principles who got together and started something small. In the fullness of time, that something small became something big. The cast of characters changed, too: the original three co-founders are now off doing many other things. I | Read More »

    And we’re back

    We may have issues though. In the backend, many little things have changed. The forest is the same, but the trees are different. Please bear with us, but don’t hesitate to report anything that breaks. Well, except for (NT) comments. Those are unfortunately gone for good, on purpose. I know. I used them more than anyone, and I will miss them!

    We May Or May Not Be ‘Ultraconservative,’ But We Certainly Didn’t Call the SBA Pledge ‘Ridiculous’

    The pseudo-conservative Washington Post blogger, Jenn Rubin, has decided to label RedState as ‘ultra-conservative’. I can only guess that it is because we advocate hanging the traitor Jonathan Pollard instead of setting him free like Rubin does and also because we here at RedState embrace Jim DeMint as a standard bearer for conservatism while Rubin would prefer to take an exacto knife and excise from | Read More »
