Skip to comments.Republicans gain momentum in close fight for U.S. Senate
Posted on 03/08/2014 1:40:52 PM PST by Clintonfatigued
Eight months before the November 4 elections, Republicans have expanded the number of competitive races for U.S. Senate seats and have a growing chance of gaining control of that chamber and stalling Democratic President Barack Obama's second-term agenda.
Public dissatisfaction with the president, concerns about his healthcare overhaul and a sluggish economy, and a series of retirements by key Democratic senators in conservative states have made a rugged year for Democrats even more so, analysts and strategists in both parties say.

It’s promising but not guaranteed. The patriotic grass roots needs to get out and make it happen.
Your inbox will soon be filled with dozens of posts by whining rotters who will crow about how were are doomed, doooooooooooooooooooomed to defeat!
Since it appears Lamar! will win renomination, he will do so without my vote again in either the primary or the general. 5th most liberal Republican representing a Conservative state like mine is disgusting (and he has his pimps out telling people how “Conservative” he is when his votes tell another story). A damnable liar whose mantra in his book was “two terms and out.”
Execrable establishment RINOs like him are why it makes no difference which party is in power because nothing will change. It’s the same crap when we had 2 Democrats from Tennessee. Voting wrong and coming back every 6 years to say how “Conservative” they are.
Drudge is running an interesting poll today letting people vote their pick for the GOP presidential candidate. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz are about tied and between them have nearly 60% of the 59K votes cast so far.
There is a state Representative running in the primary. Maybe you could vote for him and perhaps give yard signs to your close friends and relatives.
Who do you have “ahead” of Lamar? Collins, Kirk, Murkowski, and ?
Now you’ll get some posts saying that this is very bad news.
I’m aware of Joe Carr’s campaign. I’m voting for him. He also has almost NO money and as a result, no momentum. We also have the serious problem of open primaries with Democrat interference and NO runoffs. It’s no surprise that we’ve ended up with three RINOs in the Senate and Governor’s office (the latter being only marginally better, if only because the legislature could override him easily if he went full Sundquist).
I also don’t have any relatives in TN, besides my parents. I’ve tried to lobby my uncle to vote for McDaniel in MS, but he won’t do it, saying Cochran helped him with his job some time ago.
A new poll in NH shows Scott Brown trailing by 13 points. With these numbers Brown might not even get in the race. NH is purple trending blue. Sad to see this once great state lost.
We see the same thing in CO, VA, NV, & NM....all lost to the left.
I was looking at an article that had him ranked 40th in the Senate, but I didn’t see the names bringing up the bottom. It’s possible Cochran may be in that group.
If Obamanationcare can't be repealed, hoping for gridlock on the rest of the dictator's nefarious schemes.
The Suffolk poll which you learned of is not the most reliable poll around. It’s still winnable and Brown hasn’t even entered the race yet.
We have a lot of opportunities to choose from.
The Suffolk poll has had its ups & downs. And of course it’s early & Brown is not in yet, but NH is moving away from us at a shocking rate. Look at the 2 reps. The idiot Shea-Porter & the radical Kuster.....those 2 could never get elected state-wide in NH 10 or 15 years ago.
That would appear to be the national journal rankings (Numbers for last year only). They have him at 40th in terms of “most conservative”, tied with Lindsey Graham (so there is no 41). They have Kirk AHEAD of him at 36th though so...yeah, I don’t know about that. They have McCain to his left at 43rd most Conservative. Collins is 45, Murkowski is 44. Roy Blunt is 42 (I don’t know if he’s that bad but he needs to go).
Cochran is way up at 34.
The Union - Leader (the newspaper that took Muskie out in 72) is not the paper it was. the paper - Much Conservative when Loeb was alive is now moderate.
<><> Bill Clinton never had sex w/ "that woman,"
<><> Obama said "keep your plan" 29 times to get reelected,
<><> Harry Reid said everyone claiming to be hurt by O/Care is a liar,
<><>Hillary Clinton got fired from the Watergate Commission for lying
<><> Nancy Pelosi swore everything Obama said about O'Care was accurate,
<><> Debbie Wasssername Schultz said Democrats are gonna run and win on the glories of O/Care.
The republican party and their brilliant campaign consultants have a history of taking leads to mean it’s time to start coasting to the finish line.
Same thing going on here in South Carolina with linda graham. She’s such a “conservative.” Right.
Brown is kind of a RINO but he does have a history of coming from behind, as he did in that shocking surprise in the special election to fill the late Ted Kennedy's Senate seat.
One good reason why Brown is now trailing is lack of name recognition vs. the 'Rat incumbent. Merely entering the race and the attention that event alone might generate can get him closer or even put him ahead.
