I dont think Cotton will ever be in the position to be the 60th vote to pass amnesty or invade Syria.
One GA candidate that I dont want to win is Bob Barr.
I'm with you there.
Actually, those numbers aren’t spectacular for Michelle Nunn, since that’s likely about as high as she’ll perform statewide (low 40s) barring a disastrous GOP nominee. Nunn resembles the liberal Senator from Alaska, Murkowski. I also get a possible lesbian vibe from her.
YES; Pryor must go!!! I am giving serious consideration to switching to the RAT party so that I can vote for Cotton several times. Will be sending a contribution to the campaign today.
Well she’s got a husband. And 2 more Nunns have emerged from her womb. Of course that doesn’t prove she isn’t a friend of Sappho. To me she resembles another daughter of a Senate rat, Sheila Simon (but not as bad).
Despite her father not being the most liberal rat and her talk of centrism I’m certain she’s a dangerous radical.
I don’t think she’ll win (or that McConnell would lose in Kentucky) but I’d hate to have to expend resources defending that seat.
That is I don’t think she’ll win if she faces Gingrey or Kingston. Broun’s nomination would put the seat in play. We can’t sleep on any of the races we expect to win, not after the FUBAR that was 2012.
Of the three, I’d prefer Broun. Gingrey is meh. Kingston is pure establishment, and for him to run for the Senate after 22 years in the House is ridiculous. Swapping that much seniority to be a backbencher is plain dumb (even Gingrey is ill advised to just jettison his 12 years of seniority as well). Ideally, I wouldn’t mind Herman Cain taking a shot at it. Just someone new to the game pledged to be a real pain in the ass to the party establishment and “bipartisanship.”
Well Broun trails Nunn in the poll by 41-26.
He is a Paulbot isn’t he, is that not correct? I smell Akin potential.
You are right about Kingston. I thought Gingrey was okay but there was that gun control remark after that stupid school shooting.
Actually, my main problem with Broun is separate and apart from any concerns about his being a Paulbot, it’s his age. He would turn 69 just months after the start of the 2015 Congress. Not exactly a good age to start to embark on a Senate career. It’s funny that his official photo makes him look 20 years younger.
Mark Pryor is already attacking Tom Cotton and so are some liberal organizations. That’s a very good sign. They would not be doing this if they were confident of Pryor’s chances.
I’m leaning towards Karen Handel at this time, though not committed to any candidate yet. Handel led the movement to cut off Komen Center funding to Planned Parenthood, one of the more noble causues of recent years. In addition, Handel has an inspiring life story.
Broun is hated by the black caucus for a VRA amendment and by MSNBC for suggesting the immigration bill will bring in more constitution hating Democrats.
Same poll has Former Republican Congressman and Drug Czar Asa Hutchinson (at right) holds an
eight-point lead over his Democratic rival for governor, former Democratic Rep. Mike Ross, D.
The two men are vying to replace Gov. Mike Beebe, D, who defeated Hutchinson for the job in
2006 but cannot run again due to term limits.
The rats are going to have nobody running in Montana at this rate.
Bad news about Broun. I thought he’d be the next senator for sure. How are those other two guys? I thought a Korean was running last time I looked.
I actually get a strong lesbian vibe from her.
Oops I forgot about her, she was my pick the gubernatorial race 3 years ago.
I’d probably have to go with her again over these 3 flawed Congressman.
I had no idea Broun was that old.
I think WV and AR are definite pickups. What does Cotton think about rape?
I think Barney Frank should fly in to support Pryor. Clearly looking at the two of them, Cotton is the “better man”. I’ve often wondered what Pryor has given as an excuse for not serving in the military. As I recall, his dad also avoided service during the Korean War; Born in 1934, he should have been on the front lines and instead went to a teachers college. Disgraceful.
You can bet your bottom dollar on South Dakota too. Montana pretty much locked up with Schweitzer not running. (I think Stapleton will be our nominee)
So, if we have WV, AR, SD,and MT, we only need two more seats to flip the senate.
Louisiana seems likely, with Landrieu outed as a gun-grabber. North Carolina is going to be a competitive race, but very winnable. Alaska requires a good candidate, but is also winnable.
Unfortunately when it comes to Iowa and Michigan, a lot of our top tier candidates are chickening out.
Karen Handel’s fundraising has been poor. Do you think he’ll be able to raise the money? Because the DNC will be pumping their printed bucks into Nunn.
