    Some quick thoughts on PA-12

    Right now I’m at Burns for Congress HQ with Robert Stacy McCain, Brian O’Connor, and John LaRosa. Scott Brown’s event went well. Check out Stacy’s coverage here.

    Not yet confirmed, but we’ll be checking up on this.  We were given the heads’-up on this one by Stacy McCain (@rsmccain, The Other McCain), who is apparently (I think) on the scene of PA-12. [UPDATE] Preliminary checking suggests false alarm, more’s the pity.  Ach, well. [ANOTHER UPDATE] Just had more on this come on in.  The DCCC (not, strictly speaking, a Critz one) ad | Read More »

    Simply Put: PA-12′s Tim Burns Spells Out the Special Election

    Republican Tim Burns can’t say it any better with his new “Simply Put” campaign ad. Burns differentiates the two parties succinctly and without slamming his opponent, either. The PA-12 special election to fill the people’s seat that the late Jack Murtha held for so many corrupt years is another opportunity to ring liberty’s bell throughout the halls of the Capitol. Voters in PA-12 take notice and | Read More »

    Americans for Prosperity comes out swinging on Net Neutrality

    Americans for Prosperity, one of the Beltway area groups that really “gets it,” has come out hard against Net Neutrality and Title II classification of ISPs. They’re actually running television ads on the matter. What’s most interesting to me though is that their ad has three different versions.
