  • Ed Reinecke, who resigned as California's lieutenant governor after a perjury conviction, dies at 92

    Ed Reinecke, the California lieutenant governor who resigned after being convicted of perjury in a Watergate-era scandal, died Saturday in Laguna Hills. He was 92 and died of natural causes, said his son, Mark Reinecke... Reinecke was a protege of then-Gov. Ronald Reagan... The conviction was eventually overturned because of a technicality: the Senate Judiciary Committee had not officially published a rule permitting a one-man quorum, and the special Watergate prosecutor had not established that more than one senator attended the hearing... After Reinecke’s downfall, Reagan remained loyal to his former lieutenant, soliciting funds to help him pay his legal...
  • Kentucky’s New GOP Lt. Gov. Is Black Tea-Party Activist

    Matt Bevin’s 53 percent to 44 percent victory tonight marks only the second time in 48 years that Republicans have won the Kentucky governor’s race. But Republicans also made history in another way. Bevin’s lieutenant governor running-mate, Jenean Hampton, is now the first African American elected to statewide office ever in the state’s history.
  • Meet Jenean Hampton, the first black statewide officeholder in Kentucky. And, she’s a Republican

    Kentucky's newest lieutenant governor-elect is unique in many ways. She and her running mate, Gov.-elect Matt Bevin, are some of this election cycle's first victorious political outsiders. (Bevin had been likened to Donald Trump). Jenean Hampton is also the first African American to be elected to statewide office in Kentucky. And she's just one of a handful of black women on the national level to identify with the tea party movement.

    E.W. Jackson, a minister and attorney from Chesapeake, pulled off a stunning upset last night, topping six rivals for the Republican nomination for lieutenant governor. Jackson fended off a late charge by Pete Snyder, a Northern Virginia technology entrepreneur, capping an epic four-ballot battle at the Richmond Coliseum that lasted nearly 10 hours.
  • CA: Breaking down the Maldonado confirmation vote (Abel Maldonado is the new lieutenant governor)

    The state Senate this afternoon voted 25-7 to confirm Gov. Arnold Schwarznegger’s nomination of state Sen. Abel Maldonado, R-Santa Maria, as lieutenant governor; the governor will swear him into office tomorrow. As I’d said Friday on KQED Channel 9’s “This Week in Northern California,” don’t mistake this for an instance of politics being put aside. Democrats supported Maldonado only because they want him out of the Senate so they can try to win his 15th State Senate District seat, and only now because confirming him earlier wouldn’t have allowed the SD-15 special election to be consolidated with November’s general election,...

    DeVore Slams Backroom Deals, Only Republican To Oppose Maldonado Confirmation FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- (SACRAMENTO) – California State Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, (R-70-Irvine), today spoke out against the backroom deals involved in the effort to confirm state Senator Abel Maldonado as California’s Lieutenant Governor. He then voted against the motion to confirm Maldonado and urged other lawmakers to do the same. DeVore cited Maldonado’s vote for the higher taxes included in 2009’s Proposition 1A in exchange for an agreement by the Governor and Democrat leaders to place Proposition 14, the open primary measure that infringes upon the rights of partisan voters...
  • Less Hypocrisy For CA Lieutenant Governor - Tom McClintock

    As the California election nears, candidates ramp up accusations that opponents have huge hypocrisy gaps between what they say and what they do. But, until recently, the candidate who clearly wins any hypocrisy comparison has been largely overlooked That is State Senator Tom McClintock, running for Lieutenant Governor against Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi. In a long public life, he has remained consistent to the limited defensible role for government in our society, and hasn’t sold out that vision to “buy” votes from others to get some goodies he wants from Sacramento. He may be the only one there with the...

    MITCHELLVILLE, Md. (AP) - Baltimore Mayor Martin O'Malley formally announced state Delegate Anthony Brown on Monday as his running mate in the governor's race, saying the veteran is someone who understands leadership. The men appeared with their families before about 50 sign-waiving supporters in Brown's home county of Prince George's. They then left for a series of joint appearances in Baltimore, Frederick and Hagerstown. O'Malley and Montgomery County Executive Douglas Duncan are seeking the Democratic nomination to challenge Republican Gov. Robert Ehrlich, who will seek a second term next year. O'Malley referred several times to Brown's military service and said...

    "Lt. Gov. Catherine Baker Knoll apologized Monday to the family of a Marine killed in Iraq for showing up uninvited for his funeral last week and giving out a business card. Knoll went to the funeral of Staff Sgt. Joseph Goodrich and family members said she told his aunt that 'our government' was opposed to the war." What is missing from this article?Notice that there is not a single mention of the fact that Lt. Governor Catherine Baker Knoll is a DEMOCRAT in the AP article posted on CNN. You can bet if a Republican politician publicly screwed up like...

    I would like to share with you the results of a statewide survey that made me very optimistic about us taking the Lt. Governor's office in 2006. As you may know, Senator Tom McClintock has recently announced his candidacy for Lt. Governor. According to the poll summary, below, Senator McClintock represents our best chance of putting a Republican into this crucial statewide office. In fact, at this early stage Tom McClintock already wields widespread statewide name ID as well as formidable leads over potential challengers. Feel free to share this with others!

    Just received word via some of our Kentucky FReepers that Freeper Don Bell will be running on the ticket with Senator Virgil Moore for Kentucky Governor next year. "Virgil Moore is a very popular State Senator with many years of legislative experience. Don Bell compliments that ticket perfectly because he is an experienced bean counter, has 20 years experience as a Secret Service Agent, and so can do a lot to cure the ills in the bloated budget as well as the many problems within the Kentucky State Police Department." "At the moment, I see no team running that has...

Gov.-elect David Dewhurst insisted Thursday that the state can handle its projected $5 billion revenue shortfall next year without a tax increase because there is room to cut expenses and improve efficiency in state programs. "We're going to have to be creative. We've got to look where we can for nontax revenue," the Republican said, predicting that there will be no tax bills in the 2003 legislative session, which...
