I will vote against Senator Roberts from Kansas in the Primary. He has lived in Washington since 1969, he is not one of us.

Since I will never as long as I may live vote for a Democrat, I cannot make that promise for the General Election.

Carl Levin D-MI is retiring. Michiganders have the opportunity to hopefully at least get one republican as a senator

“Mark Warner (D) replaced by Ken Cuccinelli (R)”

I’d make a second job out of that.

“Republicans were always going to have an uphill climb against wealthy Sen. Mark Warner (D) next year, but their chances got even slimmer when they opted to select their nominee via convention next year. Having a convention rather than a primary increases the possibility of the GOP picking an unelectable far-right candidate...”

This was written by Mr. UVA (Larry Sabato) back in the summer.

Saxby Chambliss can go fornicate himself. Off a bridge. I’d like to see anyone who’s more conservative in that spot. Isakson can do the same when his turn comes up.

I always like Larry telling us what we should do. I prefer Tea Party/Constitutional Republicans picking candidates instead of Dems. There will be mistakes. But what Larry didn't write about was the master fund raiser/bundler/crony TMac and his buying of Virginia.

Doing it their way don’t work. If the big man Republicans won’t support us, we might as well pick a guy we can enjoy supporting.

I wonder what name the RNC will push. Any guesses?

Chambliss in GA is retiring - his will be an open seat. There are either 9 or 11 GOP contestants, and the Dems seem likely to put Sam Nunn’s daughter Michelle up against whoever wins the GOP primary.

BTW, Jimmy Carter’s grandson Jason will be running for GA Gov on the rat party ticket.

Sen. Tom Harkin, Democrat-Iowa, announced his retirement over nine months ago.

Unfortunately, the Paultards who have nominal control of the Iowa GOP are doing their best to torpedo whoever ends up being the Republican nominee. The only chance in a generation is almost gone.

At this point, I don't know who the RNC will push. At one point I was thinking Bolling - but most Republicans in the Commonwealth know his career is over - he just doesn't realize it yet. I also believe that McDonald wants to rise from the ashes of the Star Scientific debacle, but he is too tainted. Next month is the Republican Advance and more will be learned at that gathering. I think Cooch is the only logical choice based on the passion of his workers and his database. If he decides to go for it, I'm sure he'll be the pick at the Convention over anyone - unless Ted Cruz moves into the Commonwealth. I don't see any Congressmen going for it at this time. There's also a lot of buzz about Ken doing it internally. But we'll see...

Ok, you are officially a sore loser. The scumbag McAuliff won, it is over, Warner is not vulnerable and has a personal wealth of about 200 million to smash any opponent.

“At this point, I don’t know who the RNC will push.”

RNC does not care about this race as RNC does not believe it is winnable.

Damn it, they've got to get along with the GoPe have to learn to work together or a great opportunity will be missed.

In Virginia, the GoPe did not support the Tea Party/Paul candidate and it just cost the RPV and Cooch the victory. I and other conservatives supported their Bolling, McCain, Romney, etc. It was now their turn to support my Cuccinelli and they didn't. The leaders have to wise-up and pull the factions together if we plan to win again. The Virginia Republican Party is converting into a more Constitutional party every day imho. The Virginia GoPe needs to get on board with that.

I think the RNC is forced to care about this race because of the House of Representatives. They have to ensure that Republican voters come out across all eight Republican Districts across the Commonwealth - which is also part of the Senate strategy. We'll see what happens this spring with the plans and the RPV questioning the RNC and NRSC.

It was very interesting how bad the polls were in this race. Some had TMac winning by double digits and I don't think any were even with in the margin of error of what occurred.

I see this as a war that will take years and most likely decades. We have a Marxist in the White House and a number of others in the Congress. There are going to be a lot of battles but they must be fought. It is too important.

We are seeing a sea change in the Republican Party that must also occur - or it will go the way of the dinosaurs and possibly our great Nation with it. There has to be an opposing and growing force to the Marxist Dems.

Yep.

But don’t count on Iowa for leadership.

Prominent conservative Republicans in Iowa have backed out of the Senate race, leaving radio talk show host and gadfly Sam Clovis as the only real conservative, with little-known State Senator Joni Ernst a distant second in my mind. A few other candidates seem typical RINOs.

Ernst is attractive, a military veteran and mostly says the right things. She has also endorsed immigration reform AKA open borders, a deal-breaker. Millions of new lower class citizens erase any hope of conservative control of government, so someone claiming to be a conservative while endorsing open borders will never have to produce on their promises.

Tea Party is mostly sentiment, that’s why it’s not Republican Party or a third party.

Tea Party-types like Sam Clovis, and he seems to me to be gaining a bit as a viable candidate, but seemed just symbolic when he first declared.

The state party organization has tried to move the primary from June to July, giving sure-thing Democrat nominee an extra month advantage in the general election race.

Cornball's doing his Four Year Lurch to the Right - right now. He tried to play tough guy with Senilious, at the hearings. No Sale!!

Unfortunately, I think the filing date for a challenger is November 9th...I think that's what someone posted, recently. I was hoping Louie Gohmert would've run.
