But last year, the 'Rats probably lost some of their SOS positions because of the general national trend toward the GOP. So why this article just now?
People have complicated, active lives. They forget the details sometimes. That's one of our jobs. Keep the players informed. Keep the game plan active. That's what Free Republic does.
Last year Ruth Johnson actually used the Soros connection to the democrat candidate as a weapon and won.
I think this ad was pretty effective at showing the fraud and the soros connection.
Why is Soros’ Secretary of State Project surfacing now?
B/c vote-crazed Obama desperately needs illegals votes.
He has a huge underground budget to register illegals using multiple identities.
And if anyone complains, Secy’s of State handle voter irregularities and can give the scam a pass.
Yes, indeed, we did reclaim some of those SoS positions with the 2010 elections (and in some cases, the Governors appoint them, so in those states that flipped party control, we gained those as well). We currently have 29 where there is a “defined” office.
As of now we have the following (June 2011):
AK (the Lt Governor holds the responsibilities)
AR (captured for the first time in 2010 since Reconstruction)
CO (captured from the Dems in 2010)
FL (app’t by Governor)
IA (captured from the Dems in 2010)
KS (captured from the Dems in 2010)
ME (elected by legislature, captured by GOP in 2010)
NJ (the Lt Governor holds this job)
NM (elected - captured in 2010 for first time since 1928)
OH (elected, captured from Sorosbot in 2010)
PA (app’t by Governor)
TN (elected by legislature)
TX (app’t by Governor)
VA (app’t by Governor)
The Dems have:
KY (election up this year, the former GOP occupant resigned, now held by Dem appointee)
MD (app’t by Governor)
MN (elected - a key Sorosbot here)
MO (elected - Sorosbot ?)
MT (elected - another Sorosbot ?)
NV (elected - Sorosbot ?)
NH (elected by legislature, one Dem has held this office since 1976, but he is respected by both parties)
NY (app’t by Governor)
NC (elected - Sorosbot ?)
WV (elected - Sorosbot ?)
WI (elected, Doug LaFollette - probably the most odious rodent SoS in the country currently, narrowly survived reelection in 2010)
