Image Credit: Clancco.com Senator Pat Roberts leaves a lot to be desired. He represents McLean, VA quite efficiently. Unfortunately, he runs for office as a Senator from the Great State of Kansas. Although he was forthright and honest enough to announce to the world that he could be found in Kansas “anytime he had an opponent.” So if there were ever a candidate for the | Read More »

Today I’m introducing a quick-and-dirty metric for examining the state of play in the Senate races: the Senate Breakers Report. As I explained eleven days ago, the history of the last six Senate election cycles shows that the final results can and do differ from where the polls stand in mid-September, and the strong tendency has been for the final results to move in the | Read More »
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 »

Those who follow the generic congressional ballot polls may have noticed a certain shift toward the Republicans in recent weeks. CBS/New York Times polls show the Republicans leading the Democrats 45 percent to 39 percent in mid-September, but the Democrats up (41 percent to 37 percent) in August. A Pew poll from early September has […]
Kansas Democrats have not had a great year. They had to go to court to get their own Senate candidate thrown off the ballot. Now comes news that their gubernatorial candidate, Paul Davis, got busted in a strip club in 1998 while getting a lap dance. Politico has the story: In [1998, Davis] was getting a lap dance at a strip club when cops raided | Read More »

If you were hoping for a doozy of a debate Friday night, the Texas Gubernatorial debate proved to be a wonderful experience for us all, and definitely a learning experience as Wendy Davis was shut down in an argument she was making, then proceeded to lose her mind. In case you missed it, here’s the highlight: Davis: Will you drop your appeals in this case? | Read More »

Andrew Kaczynski at Buzzfeed has a detailed analysis of how Wisconsin’s Democratic candidate for governor, Mary Burke, “plagiarized” the “jobs plan” on her website from three prior Democratic gubernatorial candidates. As Moe Lane noted earlier today, the really hilarious part of this story is that two of these three candidates lost, and the third won in blue Delaware in 2008. But there’s another reason why | Read More »
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. It is difficult – though not entirely impossible – to imagine the GOP not meeting at least their goal for the Senate. | Read More »
