    "Missouri Republicans, upset over charges of racism against Sen. John D. Ashcroft (R-Mo.), are circulating a 1960 photograph of Gov. Mel Carnahan (D) in blackface makeup performing a Kiwanis minstrel show." "Arvarh Strickland, the University of Missouri's first black professor, said Carnahan should be judged on his public service. 'It's not what he was doing or saying in 1960, but his record as governor of Missouri. . . . When you look at his record, you certainly would not expect to see Gov. Carnahan in blackface.'"

    Yesterday Obama attended four fundraisers, including one at the the home of Tom Carnahan, the founder of Wind Capital Group. Carnahan hosted approximately 45 people who contributed at least $25,000 to attend. Tom Carnahan is the son of former Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan and former U.S. Senator Jean Carnahan of Missouri. His brother Russ currently serves as a U.S. Congressman for the state of Missouri, and his sister Robin is the current Missouri Secretary of State, who ran against Republican Sen. Kit Bond of Missouri in 2010. Last year, Wind Capital's Lost Creek Farm facility received a $107 million "tax...

    I returned a bit ago from getting photos and video of the Obama fundraiser protest in St. Louis. It was hosted by Tom Carnahan, owner of the Wind Capital Group, an alternative energy group which received around $100 million in stimulus funds. That Carnahan’s brother is Democratic Representative Russ Carnahan surely helped change Wind Capital Group’s fortunes. (Snip) I’ve been to a lot of protests–both conservative and progressive–and only one other time have I witnessed such a level of hostility and outright inappropriate behavior.

    President Barack Obama will raise money in early October with a Missouri businessman whose company benefited from a $107 million federal tax credit to develop a wind power facility in his state. Tom Carnahan, a scion of Missouri’s most prominent Democratic political family, is listed on Obama’s campaign website as a host of a $25,000-per-person fundraiser to be held in St. Louis on October 4. His energy development firm, Wind Capital Group, was helped by a sizable credit authorized in the stimulus, for an energy project in northwest Missouri.

    For the second time in three weeks on Wednesday, Rep. Russ Carnahan engaged a fellow Missouri Democrat in a heated confrontation over redistricting on the House floor. This time, it was Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, chairman of the Congressional Black Caucus, who had encouraged a state lawmaker to cast what became the deciding vote to put in place a state redistricting plan that pairs Carnahan, who is white, with Rep. Lacy Clay, who is black, in a St. Louis-area district that is heavily African-American. “He’s angry,” Cleaver, a longtime Carnahan family friend, said after the verbal altercation. “I understand the frustration...

    Missouri's statewide voter registration computer system has been down, creating delays in verifying voter registrations, according to local election officials. "This issue is with Internet access to the voter look-up function," Laura Egerdal, spokeswoman for Missouri's secretary of state, told Fox News. The system has been down since about 7:15 a.m., according to the Kansas City Star. Egerdal said that there is not an issue with the voter registration database itself, and that election workers have manually been looking up voters. Since 2006, voters who have had questions about where to vote could access a statewide computer system that houses...

    Jefferson City, Mo. (AP) -- Fertilized with federal stimulus money, 100 new wind turbines have cropped up among the soybean fields of northwest Missouri, and they're generating some high-voltage sparks in Missouri's U.S. Senate race. That's because the Lost Creek Wind Farm, which received $107 million in stimulus money, was developed by a company run by Tom Carnahan — the younger brother of Democratic Senate candidate Robin Carnahan and U.S. Rep. Russ Carnahan. Vice President Joe Biden highlighted the project during a visit to Missouri in April 2009. Two weeks ago, the White House included it on a list of...

Carnanhan repeatedly ignores his constituent and finally leaves the building and heads for parking lot and has vehicle at a fast pace. I think from Caranahan's non-answer, we might safely assume he joins President Obama in supporting the Ground Zero mosque construction. The video can be seen here.

This time, she has come out in favor of Elena Kagan’s appointment to the United States Supreme Court—just the latest in a series of revelations proving that Carnahan would vote lockstep with the radical Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda. Carnahan recently announced that she would support Kagan’s appointment because “the president… get[s] to chose Supreme Court appointees.” And despite the fact that the Senate is charged by the U.S. Constitution to provide “advice and consent,” Carnahan also claims that we should “just get on with it and move on to the next thing.” Carnahan’s support of...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — President Barack Obama has a new campaign slogan. “Yes, we did.” And it doesn’t stop there. Republicans, an animated Obama argued Thursday, wouldn’t have. They wouldn’t have set the economy back on track, he said during a fundraiser for Senate candidate Robin Carnahan, or passed a health care overhaul or financial regulatory reform. Giving the GOP control of Congress again — a possibility that Obama acknowledged — would usher in another era of a “you’re on your own philosophy,” he said. “You’re going to face a choice in November.

    Missouri voters continue to be unhappy with Barack Obama and his health care plan and that's helped Roy Blunt to take the lead in the US Senate race. Blunt is up 45-41 on Robin Carnahan, but that result probably has more to do with how the state feels about Barack Obama than it does about the candidates themselves. Voters who approve of Obama are voting for Carnahan by an 84-6 margin. Voters who disapprove of Obama are voting for Blunt 80-6. The problem for Carnahan is that a 52% majority of voters in the state fall in the disapprove column...

    Here’s a dirty little secret in American politics. A lot of the reporters who cover politics don’t know the first thing about politics. They cannot read the tea leaves. They do not know how. They do not even try.

    The Show Me State briefly became the No Show State on Wednesday as some prominent Missouri Democrats decided they'd rather be somewhere else when President Obama came to St. Louis to push his massive health care overhaul plan. Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, the all-but-certain Democratic nominee for the Senate seat being vacated by Republican Sen. Christopher S. "Kit" Bond, was "already locked in" to meetings in Washington, D.C., on Wall Street financial reforms, said her spokesman Linden Zakula, who downplayed her absence for Mr. Obama's visit. "Yes, she could have been there, but she feels very strongly about...

    Little has changed this month in Missouri's race for the seat being vacated by retiring Republican Senator Kit Bond. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state shows Republican Roy Blunt leading Democrat Robin Carnahan 49% to 42%. Just three percent (3%) of Missouri voters would opt for some other candidate, while six percent (6%) are undecided at this point. In January, Blunt held a 49% to 43% lead over Carnahan, who is currently Missouri's secretary of state. That survey marked a shift in Blunt’s favor from a poll conducted in December, when Carnahan held a...
  • Missouri Senate Race Heating UP

    Wake up to Missouri. The 2010 US Senate Race is heating up with a variety of polling sources pointing out some interesting results. Jan 19th Rasmussen reports show polling reports putting Rep Roy Blunt (RINO) against Robin Carnahan, DemoRat. Latest Poll on Jan 19 shows Blunt ahead of Carnahan 49% to 43%. Unfortunately Rasmussin reports only polled the other CONSERVATIVE Republican Chuck Purgason back on Nov 13-15th. Purgason polled 35% to 42% to Carnahan. I find it very unfortunate that the polling for Purgason is not being current. It is the assumption of the Republican Party operatives in Missouri that...

    Union Violence: An African-American is beaten up at a political rally by thugs shouting racial epithets, and after three months his assailants are charged with the moral equivalent of jaywalking. Why wasn't it a hate crime? The beating of Kenneth Gladney by people wearing the purple shirts of the Service Employees International Union outside a Missouri health care town hall meeting three months ago met all the classic definitions of a hate crime. Time was, the beating of a black man outside a protest rally, and the arrest and prosecution of the perpetrators, would be headline news. Gladney was working...
