Look at Steelman and her history....RINO.
Look at Akin, Pretend-hide-my-rino-trends...RINO

Brunner, a Clint Eastwood badAZZ. Best in MO.

Go Brunner GO!

It appears McCaskill’s endorsement of Adkin may carry more
weight tonight than Palin’s (Steelman) or Freedomworks(Bruner). If Adkin wins tonight, give McCaskill,
the Rat, credit.

Actually I like Palin. My modest reservations on Steeleman are from the prior elections long before Palin endorsed.

I would say that Aiken and Steeleman fairly compared on FR would show Aiken is more our brand.

I would have no trouble supporting Steeleman if she wins tonight.

Have you seen her ad that she was running? It was all about Akin was too conservative for Missouri. From what I had heard, her internal polling showed she fared better against Akin than against the others. I believe that I also read that in the Hannibal Courier Post. I am not sure if it was the Sunday or Monday edition that was discussing that Claire’s ad was designed to promote Akin.

Funny you mentioned that.
He had an article before the race below the fold, but
I never saw him post the results of the race.

That appeared odd to me.
Hell, he didn’t even post the Historic Mars Rover landing
until mid-monday morning.

Palin and the rest of the National Tea Party organizations should respect the voters of MO and not interfere in the general election.
After all it appears it was McCaskill’s (RAT) endorsement
in the primary race of Akin, that carried the night.

Dude, you don't even live here. And you don't know what you're talking about.

McCaskill didn't endorse Akin, she ran an ad portraying him as "too conservative for Missouri." That's not an endorsement, and this conspiracy bull that she ran the ad because she perceives him as the weakest challenger is just nonsense.

Akin is winning on the strength of his record. I've lived in his district since he was first elected and he is solid conservative. I'll be sorry to see him go, he's been a great representative.

It’s been called for Akin (see TomGuy’s post #173)

I think anyone of the three:Akin,Brunner, and Steelman were seen as acceptably conservative and capable of beating MCCaskill.

I was rooting for Steelman because of Palin, but Akin is just fine. The main thing is winning that Senate seat in November, GO TODD AKIN!!! :)

FYI, Akin was probably the safest choice from an electability standpoint. Brunner has potentially wider appeal but first time candidates are prone to mistakes. Steelman has a knack of rubbing people the wrong way.

Don't waste your breath. The militant wing of the Tea Party (wannabe's, really) have shown up to show everyone how rude and ignorant they are.

They're so damn sure in their righteous indignation that the supposed Tea Party candidate was robbed of the GOP nomination - they don't even live here, they don't know Todd - basically they don't know sh!t except how to stir up trouble and insult good people.

The right person won tonight. And no matter who got the nod, they will have a hard fight on their hands with Obama's lapdog McCaskill. She's got a $6.0M+ warchest while the GOP challenger is working from a depleted cache after this bruising primary.

Tonight we celebrate - but tomorrow it's back out to hit the bricks and help Akin accelerate his fund raising.

I agree with you. I know McCaskill. She is not the sharpest knife in the drawer. She thinks she is, just like me. I always tell my son, I’m a legend in my own time!!! And.....he always replies....saying dad, the only legend you are, is a legend in your own mind.

This idiot woman, McCaskill teamed up a few years back with that buffoon, James Hoffa, Jr. trying to prevent aircraft maintenance work from going out of the country, long after Hoffa and his AFL/CIO buddies destroyed the aviation maintenance industry in this country to a large degree.

They created an international incident, because foreign governments told the USA if they prevented aviation repair work from going out of the country, they would pull the operating certificates of USA Airlines to fly in and out of their countries.

Fact is, this union scum killed the industry, just as they have done across the board. Of course, Obama caved and bowed to every foreign leader he ever met. I cannot stand this woman, she is both ugly inside and out......and dumb as can be. Todd Akin...or any of our candidates will dispatch of her in short order. she will go down with her leaders, anti-American, Barack Hussein Obama!!! Great GOP primary turnout tonight, congrats, Big MO!!! You buried the “dirt bag, hate America Democrat Party, just as Texas did a few weeks back!!!

Thanks for the support. I've always enjoyed reading your posts; your handle caught my eye early on because my aunt's name is Judy, and her nickname is "Gray Fox" - but I know you're not her, because she lives in Colorado now. :)

(I figured out early that you're from the BigMO, too!)

Interestingly enough, your post hits close to home - I started my career as an A&P mechanic. McCaskill's connections (and meddling) with the aviation industry has always rubbed me wrong.

Remember "Air-Claire" the tax cheat?
