  • Senior US Republican Eric Cantor tastes defeat at hands of Tea Party challenger (Irish push Amnesty)

    The shock waves from the defeat of the second highest-ranking Republican in the House of Representatives in a primary election will be felt far beyond the US political epicentre in Washington. (SNIP)This all comes a week before Minister for Foreign Affairs Eamon Gilmore lands in Washington to lead the latest Government lobbying efforts on behalf of the so-called undocumented Irish. He is scheduled to meet Republican congressman Mick Mulvaney and Mark Amodei, who have strong Tea Party leanings, and Mario Díaz-Balart, who has tried for years to push his party into taking on the immigration issue. If there is any...

    Late Tuesday night National Republican Congressional Committee chairman Pete Sessions painted the Republican win in the special election in Nevada’s 2nd Congressional District as a snapshot of the problems Democrats will face in 2012. “Democrats just saw their 2012 playbook fall apart as Nevada voters refused to buy Democrats’ Medicare scare tactics and misinformation campaigns,” Sessions wrote in a statement. “This election sends Democrats another warning that Democrats up and down the ballot next year cannot escape accountability for their failed economic policies.” Medicare policy was a major focus in the ad war between Democrat Kate Marshall and Republican Mark...

    The Democratic Party’s rare loss of a congressional seat in its urban heartland Tuesday, accompanied by a blowout defeat in a Nevada special election, marked the latest in a string of demoralizing setbacks that threatened to deepen the party’s crisis of confidence and raise concerns about President Barack Obama’s political fortunes. In New York, Bob Turner(R) soundly defeated Democrat David Weprin in a House contest that – in the view of party leaders, at least — featured an anemic urban machine, distracted labor unions, and disloyal voters. In Nevada, a consequential state for the president’s re-election strategy, Democrats suffered a...

    Nevada FReepers in the 2nd Congressional District. Don't forget to vote in this important election on the 13th. While Mark Amodei is not Dean Heller he is a pretty good conservative and teachable. Marshall is a disaster. My personal opinion is that you should not vote early. The information on who voted by party is being released weekly and so far the Reps have a large number of voters over the Dems. I think it just lets the Dems know how many votes they have to turn out on election day. Save your vote until the 13th.

    By Anjeanette Damon Published Saturday, June 18, 2011 | 12:57 p.m. In a decisive victory, former Nevada Republican Chairman Mark Amodei today won the party’s nomination for the Sept. 13 special election for U.S. Sen. Dean Heller’s old congressional seat. In only one round of balloting, Amodei swept 221 of the 323 votes cast by members of the state GOP central committee, beating two other nominees, state Sen. Greg Brower and retired U.S. Navy Commander Kirk Lippold. Amodei officially resigned as chairman of the party late last month. "I will do my level best to make your decision here today...

    Republican State Sen. Mark Amodei kicked off his campaign for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Harry Reid today, telling reporters that he’ll run a positive campaign in the crowded primary, but that plenty of people in Nevada want to get rid of the incumbent. “When you look at where Nevada is right now, I think we’re at a financial crossroads. We do not need the status quo,” said Amodei, who is from Carson City. “The focus really needs to be on Nevada right now.”
