so Allard may hold on despite the apparently vicious ad campaign the Dems are running against him.

The obvious braindead observation here is that the Republican Party continues to fail to realize that KEY swing voters (those that actually decide an election) are attracted to candidates that come out swinging. Even some Dems will say "this guy's got balls" or something to that effect and vote Republican.

There is a fine line between running a negative ad and balancing it with taste. THAT IS where these elections will be won.

McBride will do exactly that against Jeb Bush in Florida and he will win (unfortunately)- and all because the Republican Party is stupid in campaigns- don't get it.

The most important thing for Republicans (other than actual effective strategy and tactics that CONNECT with people) is for Republicans to set up phone banks to get out the vote in recod numbers.

This has to be a serious effort if we want to bring the Senate back to Repubs. Make each local precinct an attempt to have a RECORD NUMBER of Republicans show up at the polls.

That is the MOST important thing to accomplish.

Absolutely and totally agree.

Really? Well, then the GOP sure is lucky to have the White House, the House and a majority of the governorships. Not to mention a split Senate. Not bad for not having a clue how to conduct a campaign!
