I had forgotten. Is Judge Moore still in the race for governor? Isn’t a black expected to win the governorship this year?

Yes, Roy Moore is a candidate for governor in Alabama. There are seven Republicans running for governor. Artur Davis, the black man, and Ron Sparks are running for governor as Democrats. Davis will have to defeat Sparks first if he has hopes of being governor.

Notice that Denish is the only unopposed candidate that is less than 100%?

I think Colon will be a drag on the ticket for the Dims... he comes across as the “little bookworm”.

Anyone can put a thread including this one in Breaking News. Whether it stays there is up to the Admin Moderator. Out of courtesy, Randita should be the one to do so.

Looking for Kokesh to lose.

Was listening to his ad when in ABQ this weekend. He touted his Marine Corps service. I was spitting mad when I heard it. As I recall his discharge was less than honorable.

From the Channel 7 blog page:

Sanderoff: Martinzez off to a great start in early and absentee returns for Bernalillo [ABQ}, Chavez {Roswell - its Chaves {dumb reporters}], and San Juan [Farminton] counties. Sanderoff [NM's premier pollster] says that 's a good sign for her, as the counties are pretty diverse.

Kokesh (NM) Mispresents Military Discharge as "Honorable".

From Honest Conservative on that thread:

Kokesh received a honorable discharge from active duty in November 2006, yes, but later while still a member of the active reserves disgraced his uniform which ultimately let to his discharge which was a general discharge.

According to ResistNet, Home of the Patriotic Resistence http://www.resistnet.com/group/newmexicoresistance/forum/topics/adam-kokesh-is-a-wolf-in?commentId=2600775%3AComment%3A2018222&groupId=2600775%3AGroup%3A140277

"He is a member of the Iraq Veterans Against War. he is a disgraced ex-marine. he has participated in numerous anti-america protests in washington dc, and has aligned himself with many anti-america and communist groups."

"He has admitted to drug abuse on his blog (which has since been altered since he started his congressional campaign but not before TAH captured it). Remember Kokesh when he teamed up with Jon DeWald to disparage veterans? Remember when Kokesh tried to start some violence on GWUs campus by tacking up handbills around campus that were obviously racist, but were blamed on a conservative student group?"

"He is a chameleon who changes his politics with the direction of the political wind. While the anti-war movement was deteriorating, Kokesh changed horses in midstream to become Paulian and now hes a Republican candidate in New Mexico.

Last March, Kokesh was marching with communists, anarchists and socialists in the ANSWER march on the Pentagon. Today hes instructing us on his commitment to the Constitution on FOX NEWS as a REPUBLICAN candidate. In just ten months."

The fact is, that a general discharge under honorable conditions, is NOT an honorable discharge, or it would be called," An Honorable Discharge".

A "general discharge under honorable conditions" speaks to the level of compensation a vet discharged under general discharge status, may retain his benefits to the level that he would have had, had he retained his honorable discharge status. It does NOT give the Vet an honorable discharge.

By definition: a discharge from military service of a person who has served honorably but who has not met all the conditions of an honorable discharge.

Again: "....But who has not met all the conditions of an honorable discharge". That is again, "Has NOT met the conditions of an honorable discharge".

You can call it cautious, I’d call it methodical. He was great on budgetary issues. He was a moderate but never a RINO. Pete Jr. is out of his league this time around. Both he and Turner may have a future, but the voters usually don’t like family connections/coattails [though it didn’t hurt Lujan in NM-3 who followed his father in politics.]

With 64.4% in, Mo Brooks has 49% to Parker Griffith’s 36.7%.

Parker Griffith switched from DEM to GOP because he knew he couldn’t win the election as a Democrat. He’s an opportunist like Specter was.

And just like Specter, Griffith is going down. The good people of Alabama are seeing through him.

The much touted Artur Davis (many articles today were speculating about Davis being the first black man to win the governorship of AL), is getting trounced by Sparks, 65% to 35%.

NM-3 is Richardson’s district. He was the first to run there and started his political career there (hence the carpet bagger moniker). It includes San Francisco-liberal Santa Fe and Taos, the Navajo Reservation, numerous Indian Pueblos and old-time Hispanic northern New Mexico. It also includes the ABQ bedroom community of Rio Rancho and the oil-field community of Farmington but is still very, very strongly Democrat.

The district voted for McCain over Obama, 61% to 38%. Griffith, as a DEM, only won by 3 points in 2008 so he saw the handwriting on the wall.

The AL governor’s race on the GOP side is going to a run off (July 13). James, Byrne and Bentley all have around 25%. Seven Republicans in all are running. Judge Roy Moore (10 Commandments judge) is running 4th with 19%.

54% of the vote in.

When Judge Moore again fails to win a Republican nomination, it shows that conservatism is pretty dead in AL. Are some Democrats voting in the
Republican primary to defeat Judge Moore? AL people are trying to “apologize” for Jefferson Davis being based first at Montgomery.
