Sen. Mark Udall Has an Honesty Problem
The news continues to be bad for Democrat incumbent Colorado Senator Mark Udall. While knowledge of his arrest for marijuana possession has long been in the public sphere, the few details offered by the embattled Senator have now been challenged by a look back at news reports from the incident. As Senator Mark Udall tells it, he was just cruising around town back in the | Read More »
Colorado Democrats are Stumbling, Beauprez and Gardner are Reaping the Benefits
Colorado’s incumbent Democrat Senator and Governor have not had a good summer. Both are now down in the polls to their Republican challengers, Gardner and Beauprez.

Shortly after these events | Read More »
Sen. @KayHagan’s husband directly benefited from the Stimulus she voted for
I miss the good old days. You know, the days where honest, hardworking Democrats tried like hell to keep stories like this hidden until after major election cycles: When Kay Hagan voted for President Barack Obama’s 2009 economic stimulus package, the Democratic senator hailed it as “the best way forward for working families across North Carolina.” One of the families that later benefited is her | Read More »
Clearest Sign Yet the GOP Will Take the Senate: Eric Holder to Resign
Eric Holder is going to resign his position as Attorney General News is just coming across the wire. Holder has been Obama’s friend and companion for six years. He has relentlessly screwed up most everything he has touched. He has overseen a Department of Justice that has been complicit in killing American border patrol agents and covering up abusive government. In the vernacular of the | Read More »
One Year Ago Today: Ted Cruz and the Conservative Fight
One year ago today, Ted Cruz took to the floor of the Senate and gave a very long speech railing against Obamacare. The law has been a documented disaster, so much that some Democrats still fear the effect the law could have on their races.

The GOP’s Era of No Feelings
A look at almost all the polling shows that this is supposed to be the GOP’s year. The Republican Party has everything to gain – control of the Senate, greater control of the House, an effective means of stopping the President Barack Obama’s agenda.

Mary Landrieu (D) To Appear in Court #LASen
As the sun rises over a small courthouse in the heart of Louisiana’s capital city, one woman is supposed to appear before a judge to verify she is actually a resident of Louisiana. That woman? Sitting U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu. U.S. Sen.

Will the African-American vote save troubled Democratic Senate incumbents?
Michael Barone is… dubious. It’s apparent that even the most vigorous black turnout effort in the eight states [of thirteen with contested Senate races, including Georgia and Kentucky] with low black percentages is not going to make much difference. Democrats there must hope that their candidates can maintain levels of support from whites at or above the levels achieved by Obama in 2008 and 2012. | Read More »

Quote of the Day, Of COURSE Gary Peters (D-CAND, Michigan-SEN) Is Still A Misogynistic Hypocrite edition.
I really should have expected that, honestly. Former Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land, R-Byron Center, went first by slamming U.S. Rep. Gary Peters, D-Bloomfield Township, claiming he is a hypocrite, flip-flopper and beholden to President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. “Whenever men tell me about a war on women, I’m suspicious,” she said to a packed house at the Suburban Collection | Read More »
The New York Times reconciles itself to losing the Senate.
(H/T: Hot Air) It wouldn’t publish an article like this unless it had come to terms with the situation: A Republican takeover of the Senate this fall would hurt Mr. Obama for the final two years of his presidency, but it might help Mrs. Clinton if she runs to succeed him. Republican control of both the House and Senate would provide Mrs. Clinton a clearer | Read More »
We can take the U.S. Senate– are you in?
If the media believes Republicans can take the Senate, shouldn’t we listen?! In an article Sunday, Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post wrote: The decision by Sen. John Walsh (D-Mont.) not to seek election in November in the wake of a plagiarism scandal is the latest piece of good news for Republicans as they strive to take control of the Senate in less than three | Read More »
