  • George Will: Vote against GOP in midterms

    Conservative columnist George Will is making the argument to vote against Republicans in the upcoming midterm elections. In a piece published Friday in the Washington Post, Will says that President Trump's "zero tolerance" policy at the border was "the most telegenic example of misrule" and it provided “fresh if redundant evidence for the principle by which” independents and moderate Republicans should vote. That principle he says is that the number of Republicans in office must be “substantially reduced.” "The principle: The congressional Republican caucuses must be substantially reduced. So substantially that their remnants, reduced to minorities, will be stripped of...

    A panel of pollsters is predicting that Democrats will win back 23 seats in this year’s midterm elections, enough to win back the house majority. Hill.TV’s “What America’s Thinking” canvassed its panel of pollsters on how many seats Democrats will gain. The average answer for the first-ever Poll of Pollsters was 23 seats, the show announced Friday. That’s exactly the number that Democrats need to flip control of the chamber from Republicans. (What a coincidence) “I feel like if 2016 taught us nothing, it is we should not make predictions. So I’m doing this under duress I’ll have you know,”...

    Amid the carnage of Republican misrule in Washington, there is this glimmer of good news: The family-shredding policy along the southern border, the most telegenic recent example of misrule, clarified something. Occurring less than 140 days before elections that can reshape Congress, the policy has given independents and temperate Republicans — these are probably expanding and contracting cohorts, respectively — fresh if redundant evidence for the principle by which they should vote. The principle is: The congressional Republican caucuses must be substantially reduced. So substantially that their remnants, reduced to minorities, will be stripped of the Constitution's Article I powers...

    Our friend Howard Root attended the Trump rally in Duluth last night. This is his (fantastic) report along with photos he took at the event (at the top and bottom below): At least 25 percent of the audience was under the age of 30, and around 40 percent were women. The senior citizen percentage was less than 10 percent — the lowest I’ve ever seen at a Republican event. Other than the hundred or so party leaders, this was a vastly different crowd from the Minnesota Republican Convention that I attended in Duluth three weeks ago. None of the attendees...

    Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) surged into first place with a commanding 14-point lead in Arizona’s closely watched GOP Senate primary, according to a new poll. A poll conducted by Phoenix-based OH Predictive Insights (OHPI) has McSally ahead with a little over 39 percent of the vote, followed by former state Sen. Kelli Ward at 24.5 percent and former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio trailing far behind at nearly 14 percent. About 22 percent of voters remain undecided. This is a big shift since OHPI’s last poll from April, which had Ward in first place and leading McSally by 9 points...

    Sen. Ted Cruz leads Democrat Beto O’Rourke 49 to 43 percent in a new poll conducted for one of O’Rourke’s Democratic allies. The new poll was conducted by the Democratic polling firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research, on behalf of a group that advocates for campaign finance reform, End Citizens United. [...] Greenberg Quinlan Rosner surveyed 1,000 likely voters between May 29 and June 5. The poll had a margin of error of +/- 3.1 percent. It included supplemental oversamples of likely voters in the Austin and San Antonio media markets to gain addition data on voters in those areas. The...

    In the Sunshine State, Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, is banking on incumbency and gun control to get him over the top. He’s been lucky throughout his Senate career in facing opponents who haven’t been the best, especially during his 2000 re-election campaign. This year is different—and he knew it. Last year, Politico reported that Nelson met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democrats ahead what will be a true contest. He’ll be fighting for his political life and he needs money. Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who is term-limited, has tossed his hat into the ring. Despite his recent...

    Former President Barack Obama is no longer pushing his agenda from the White House, but he is still in charge of the nationwide network of volunteers who helped get him elected and are now setting their sights on November’s midterm election. Born in 2008, Obama for America (OFA) morphed into Organizing for America so it could legally have access to 13,000 email addresses amassed during two presidential campaigns. The newly minted OFA was under the Democratic Party umbrella, which is allowed to use the emails, with staff remaining in OFA’s Chicago office, but a new one opened in D.C. OFA’s...

    When former President Obama left the White House, he pledged to take a back seat to make room for other Democrats in the party to shine. Nearly 17 months later, that’s proving to be an impossible task. Obama drew headlines this week after a Politico report revealed that he is consulting a long line of would-be 2020 candidates and offering advice to party leadership. And he drew another round of headlines when it was announced that his political committee, Organizing for Action, is revving up to help Democrats in the midterm elections. Democrats have turned to the party patriarch as...
  • Dems seek to seize on data privacy as midterm issue

    Democrats are looking to seize on growing public worries about data privacy to rally voters in the upcoming midterms. Tech policy typically ranks low on an average voter’s list of priorities, prompting skepticism that data privacy can rally move the needle in an election. But in a couple key Senate races in Nevada and Arizona, Democratic campaign groups say public frustration over how corporations are able to suck up increasing amounts of consumer data could make a difference. They specifically want to use last year’s congressional vote to repeal broadband privacy regulations to attack Republicans. Only 15 House Republicans voted...

    Talk of a “blue wave” has receded as the GOP has drawn more or less even on the generic preference poll, and Republican voter enthusiasm has continued to mount. For what it’s worth, here in Minnesota I think we will see a red tide. Republicans will almost certainly score a pickup in the state’s 8th Congressional district Then there are the Senate races. Minnesota is in the flukish position of having both its Senate seats up, as a result of Al Franken’s resignation. Amy Klobuchar is not in serious danger, but Franken’s former seat gives Republicans a good chance for...

    The venue for President Donald Trump's visit to Duluth was changed Friday to accommodate the crowds that are expected, according to a release from the Minnesota GOP. The rally will be moved to the AMSOIL Arena. The rally was originally scheduled at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center. Doors open at 3:30 p.m. and the event begins at 6:30 p.m. The last time Trump visited Minnesota was in November 2016, when he made an appearance at a Minneapolis-St. Paul airport hangar during his presidential campaign.

    The Virginia Republican primary yielded Corey Stewart as the opponent to face Tim Kaine in the U.S. Senate election this November. Stewart beat Nick Freitas by a difference of 1.7% of the votes. It was a close race.304,435 Virginians voted. 136,544 for Stewart, 131,267 for Freitas. Stewart won by 5,277 total votes. Northern Virginia, a DC suburb, appears to have handed the victory to Corey Stewart over his liberty conservative opponent, where Stewart brought in 10,604 more votes than Freitas.*This may surprise some. After all, Corey Stewart appeared to espouse country values, while Freitas was the more mainstream candidate. Stewart’s campaign focused...

    MAGA candidates were big winners on the June 12th primary, a continuing referendum from working, law-abiding Americans who want their elected representatives to put Americans First. Candidates who strayed from Trump’s agenda or spent more time attacking than working toward the president’s goals, they faced a reckoning. Mark Sanford of South Carolina was the most notable example. Virginia’s U.S. Senate GOP primary was also contentious and the most revealing about the populist trend redefining the Republican Party. It’s bad enough to have a left-wing Sandinista type like Tim Kaine serving as Virginia’s junior senator. It’s worse that Virginia’s Republican Party...
  • Vanity - Vote for Republican/Conservative, Corey Stewart for Senate in Virginia.

    Corey Stewart is the Republican candidate facing "Dim Bulb" Democrat, Senator Tim Kaine for the Senate seat in Virginia. I have no doubt that Stewart will run a terrific, pro-active, effective campaign against the failed, Hillary Clinton, VP choice..."the well known, asleep at the wheel, deadbeat, Democrat, Tim Kaine". Rumblings are heard that the Establishment GOP Senate campaign group will not fund the Stewart race. It's hard to believe....but Stewart can defeat Tim Kaine. It's amazing, because if Stewart takes down Kaine early in the evening of election day, the entire country (who will still be voting) will witness a...

    When the Republican Party elite don’t get their way, they will often retaliate, and that is what we are seeing in Virginia right now. After Corey Stewart defeated his establishment-backed opponent Nick Freitas by a narrow margin in the Republican primary race for US Senate earlier this week, the Republican establishment is now punishing Virginia for its choice. According to the Bull Elephant, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) spent $2.6 million in Virginia on behalf of establishment Republican Ed Gillespie as he tried to defeat Ralph Northam for Governor last year. They will be withholding their big money for Stewart, whose...
