Pataki would actually be behind 45-42 if he ran. It's pretty clear to me who should run, and that's Rudy. I'm willing to look past the issues like abortion where he is less than conservative if it means a sure win over Gillibrand. I'm pretty sure Pataki isn't so conservative either, so really there's not much of a choice.
Don't they have to announce pretty soon whether they are running? In Texas the deadline to get on the primary ballot is January 4th.
Another RINO in the senate. Well hooorrraaaayyyyyy! Isn’t THAT just the greatest news of the friggin’ day! Now maybe we can work on bringing back Cris Shays. And if we republicans are really, really good, perhaps we can talk Specter into rejoining the party.
Hagen is not up in NC in 2010, the Republican Sen. Burr is.
What about Cong. Peter King? Isn’t he also running for the US Senate in NY.
Oh, yes un you vulnerable list add:
Oh I forgot the most vulnerable one of all:
I dont see how he can go any farther. I used to see him as viable at the national level but he has too many enemies ... in the ratmedia and elsewhere.
Who knows what would happen in the Senate race once the NY Slimes assigned 50 people to get dirt on him. Still I think he should run against Gillebrand.
While Rudy is a social RINO and anti-gun, he has shown himself to be a loyal supporter and defender of more conservative Republicans, and I think he could be counted on to hold the party line on nearly every key vote in the Senate.
Also, while he doesn’t agree with the GOP on some key issues, I’ve never heard him talk about moving the party to the left to expand it. He seems to understand that he is the outsider who needs to try to fit in, rather than trying to change the party to suit his own beliefs.
As a New Yorker, I’d rather send a true conservative to the Senate, but Rudy might be the best we can do, and would be a huge upgrade over any Democrat.
I would be happier if Rudy were running for governor. New York needs a political enema badly, and he is the only one with the courage and expertise to wield the bag and nozzle thoroughly.
OFF WITH HIS HEAD!
Pataki is not a bad guy. I like Rudy too. They are RINOish but they are not McCain or Graham-nesty or Newt or Kyl.
I had to look at the link to see if it was you or Rasmussen who mis-spelled the Governor’s last name. It was you.
Here is the correct spelling: GIULIANI.
And if you’re linking a story, then use their text. Otherwise, you have created a vanity.
Flipping New York and Delaware to likely GOP pickups is a good thing. How is Mikee doing building up the party, raising money and recruiting candidates in Arkansas?
I assumed you could get the gist of the article by the title of the post. I didn’t realize there was such technical rules. Could you please point me to the thread posting rulebook so that I may study them in depth? Sorry I misspelled Giuliani. My day is ruined now. Any other grammatical errors?
Burr is running in NC and although originally thought vulnerable this should be much easier for him now. Lincoln in Arkansas would be nice to replace, and actually getting more conservative senators from Florida, New Hampshire, Texas and Arizona would be good.
I forgot about Dorgan. Really, he should be vulnerable given what is going on in DC.
Oh I see a grammatical error already. Insert “were” for “was.” Also I should probably hyphenate thread-posting.
AG in a Palin administration would be good.
The people in Arkansas are furious at Blanche Lincoln. She will be replaced.
Senate’s a long shot. If Rudy runs, he takes Gildies seat. Pubbies also have very good shots in NV, CT, PA, DE. that’d be 5 pick ups.
Might as all hand the seat to the DEMs then if that’s how conservatives feel.
Might as well hand the seat to the DEMs then if that’s how conservatives feel.
