Meet Sandy Adams (R CAND, FL-24).
Sandy is running against Suzanne Kosmas, who has been busy these last couple of years in utterly [failing to prevent*] the administration from gutting manned space exploration. Sandy has a moneybomb going on today and tomorrow, so we talked briefly about her race: Sandy’s main site is here; the moneybomb site is here. [FL]-24 is definitely gettable for the GOP, but you have to speculate | Read More »
Meet Patrick John Ryan (‘R’-CAND, IL-STATE 22).
Well… actually, if you can you’re one up on the Illinois Republican party, which is in the novel position of running a fundraiser for a candidate whom nobody can find. Illinois Republican Party Chairman Pat Brady announced that the Party will host a fundraiser for Patrick John Ryan, the “Republican” candidate challenging House Speaker Michael Madigan in the race for State Representative in the 22nd | Read More »
As CO-07 goes, so does the nation?
That’s certainly the subtext of this Washington Post article on the district. CO-07 is described as being an almost stereotypical suburban swing district (the article goes so far to describe it as being designed to be 50/50 in partisan breakdown); it currently has a two-term Democratic incumbent (Ed Perlmutter) and went 59% for Obama in the last election – thus making it representative of the | Read More »
Dick Blumenthal (D CAND, CT-SEN) lies on cap-and-trade support.
Lying, in fact, is the best-case scenario. What happened is that Dick Blumenthal, when asked point-blank whether he supported cap-and-trade, told a constituent ‘no.’ Surprisingly unambiguously, as the video below shows: Note the ‘cap-and-trade is dead’ bit: it’ll be important later.
Democratic Death Panel Watch: Baron Hill, IN-09.
The DCCC is cutting Hill loose; while it’s being – nervously – categorized as being merely an internal dispute, the practical end result is that the section of the DCCC that can do unlimited funding (independent expenditures) has canceled critical ad time while the section of the DCCC that cannot (coordinated) will be offering, at best, a token 87K. Hill, of course, is the super-genius | Read More »
Alexi Giannoulias (D CAND, IL-SEN) linked with organized crime. *Again.*
OK, this is a free piece of advice for the Giannoulias campaign: clearly their critical decision path process with regard to accepting assistance needs to be updated. From now on, they need to absolutely make sure that at some point during the process the question By the way: are you associated in any way with organized crime? be asked of potential assistants – and if | Read More »
Reid: Gillibrand ‘hottest’ Senator.
(Via Hot Air Headlines) If you were wondering whether or not current Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D, NV) is snapping under the strain of facing Sharron Angle, well, stop wondering. If he was not snapping, Reid almost certainly would not have made such a strong contrast between Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand at a recent NYC fundraiser thrown for Reid by Mayor Bloomberg. To sum | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Mike Lee (R CAND, UT-SEN).
Mike Lee, as you probably remember, was one of the first insurgent Republican Senate candidates of 2010, and a long-time friend of RedState. We were able to speak briefly Saturday: …at least, we were once I was able to resolve some technical difficulties. Like finding my cell phone. The guy had to call my number in order to help track it down. Mike’s site is | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Dr. Donna Campbell (R CAND, TX-25).
We had the opportunity to speak with Dr. Donna Campbell at the RedState Gathering. Dr. Campbell is running against Lloyd Doggett in the 25th district: Doggett, of course, is a favorite of the radical antiwar Left for his extensive and consistent anti-military voting record. Nasty piece of work, all in all, so it was nice to talk with his challenger: Dr. Campbell’s site is here. | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Rick Perry (R, TX-GOV).
Governor Perry was an excellent host governor for the RedState Gathering, and took the time to talk with many of us on various matters. Here we talk about activism and the 2010 elections: Governor Perry’s election site is here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Coons vs. Coons in ‘Biden seat’ rhetoric!
Compare and contrast: “It’s often said that this is Joe Biden’s seat. It’s not. It’s Delaware’s seat.” This would have been a fine statement by Chris Coons (D-CAND, DE-SEN) in last Thursday’s debate*… if only he believed it. You see, one of the people that have often said that the seat in question was “Joe Biden’s seat” is… Chris Coons (D CAND, DE-SEN). We cannot | Read More »
QotD, Not Senator Ma’am’s Day Edition.
So, there has been a veritable litany of bad stimulus-related news lately for California: 12.4% unemployment 110 million in stimulus money in LA = 55 jobs, thanks to, of course, red tape National trust in the administration’s ability to help the economy now underwater, 30/33 …and Barbara Boxer’s reaction? It would’ve been worse without the stimulus (not a direct quote*). Which caused ABC7 political analyst | Read More »
NH-GOV: Stephen (R) now within MoE.
Rasmussen shows a fairly unexpected primary bounce in NH for GOP gubernatorial candidate John Stephen: the race has gone from 50/39 Lynch/Stephen to 48/46 Lynch/Stephen. Polling for this race has been somewhat sparse, but it should be noted that there has been notable movement towards in both the Rasmussen and PPP polls. With the NH-SEN and NH-02 (no good recent polling on NH-01) races showing | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Herman Cain.
Herman Cain spoke at the Gathering earlier this morning, and we had the chance to chat later: Herman Cain’s site is here.
RedState Gathering: Nikki Haley.
These will be filtering out over the next couple of days: the bulk of them may not even be put up until after I can get back home. In the meantime, here’s our quick talk with SC GOV nominee Nikki Haley. Nikki’s site, of course, is here.
