The article says that McCaskill took out ads against all thee repubs.
I only saw ads against Akin. Which is I believe the candidate that she wants to run against.
Akin was the Tea Party backed candidate? News to me!
Catty hags in the Lame-Stream Media likely sharpening their claws to write the death knell of Sarah Palin’s influence.
Would you sum up the situation and significance for those of us not from Missouri?
I always like to compare votes between the major party candidates, because it's a fairly good predictor of how the November election will go. The top three Republicans split 567,000 votes to Claire's 289,000. That's 2 Republican votes to every Democrat vote, in a state where it usually runs about 50-50. Assuming the Republicans will unite behind Akin, things look very good for Akin’s chances in November.
Any of those conservatives are a huge upgrade over ObamasClaire. If majority of Missourians re-elect her then they deserve whatever carpola comes their way.
So was Atkin the one she backed or were there two Tea Party candidates?
I thought Steelman was the TP candidate.
Everybody always keep saying “Democratic” this and “Democratic” that. There’s nothing “democratic” about how they do things. It’s one single party line, and if people don’t tow it, they’re out.
This always pisses me off. Fox should know better.
Todd Akin is a solid conservative. I voted for him. All who voted for Steelman or Brunner yesterday will gladly vote for Akin in November. Akin will defeat ObamaClaire, and he will be a good senator.
The Akin win impressed me. I can’t help liking when the old war horse beats both money and a pretty face. That he won by so much larger margin than expected should embolden us all. Also take a moment to look at the party totals.
McCaskill got 289,150 votes with no competition and underperformed the Dem Gov race by about 7% so that is really positive thing for us but bad for her. The GOP Senate race over performed the Gov Race by almost the same amount.
This really shows a big enthusiasm GAP. It confirms exactly what Gallop has been reporting. I’ll be surprised if Akin doesn’t outperform Mitt Romney and win by double digits.
Bye bye Claire.
This from a sample that has Glove over Osama by only 45-44 in the state.
You said it first AUh2o, BLANCHE McCaskill.
