    A few weeks ago I wrote a column comparing the 1994 election for the U.S. House of Representatives with this year’s election. I concluded the column by pointing out that history rarely repeats itself exactly. How wrong I was. The current page scandal is an exact re-run of the scandal House Democrats faced in 1994 over the House Bank and the House postal system, except that the parties are reversed. This year it’s the Republicans who are on the ropes and the outcome should be the same…devastating results for the party in power. Let’s review the bidding. In 1994, then...

It’s time to throw out the traditional playbook and be bold as you plan for the 2006 elections. There is a real possibility that next year’s contest will be a landslide for Democrats and you need to be prepared to win. Specifically, Emanuel and Schumer should file candidates for every single...

    UGLY AMERICAN OF THE WEEKSo much for Sen. Joe Biden's audition as a future Secretary of State. At least if you ask the Iranians. Last week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Biden agreed to serve as a host and leading U.S. representative at a dinner with senior Iranian government officials. WEF staff contacted Biden's staff and said later that Biden or at least his aides took an active interest in coordinating the planning for the event. Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi was the highest-ranking Iranian official present at the event. Which is more than can be said for...

    COLLEGE PARK, Ga. (AP) - Seven candidates for chairman of the Democratic National Committee promised Saturday to address the concerns of Southern voters, saying they had learned the lessons of the past two elections. "You want to know my Southern strategy, show up," said Howard Dean, the former Vermont governor who dropped out of the presidential race during last year's Democratic primaries. Dean and the other candidates seeking to replace Terry McAuliffe as the face of the Democratic Party spoke before a Southern audience at the first of several regional caucuses to give Democratic Party officials a chance to hear...

    Redistricting decision jostles candidates, voters BY SUZANNE GAMBOA Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON - The U.S. Supreme Court's decision sending Texas redistricting back to a lower court has created the possibility that the U.S. House members chosen by voters this election may have to run in an entirely different district in two years. Voters are choosing their U.S. representatives according to a map designed by the 2003 Legislature. The map, which replaced districts drawn by a federal court in 2001, has been highly controversial. The Supreme Court on Monday put a big question mark on the map's future when it told...

    Libertarians could rock the Texas vote Nov. 2. Thursday, October 14, 2004 DALLAS — If you thought more Republicans are running in Texas' 32 congressional districts this year than Democrats, you'd be right. There are 29, versus 28 Democrats. If you thought Republicans had the most of any party, you'd be wrong. That's the Libertarians, with 30. They left unchallenged only Republicans Ron Paul of Surfside in the 14th District, the Libertarians' presidential candidate in 1988, and former Fort Worth Mayor Kay Granger in the 12th. The significance of this show of candidates is not that even one Texas Libertarian...

    Old school days long gone, but not forgotten: Congressman's streaking stunt exposed DALLAS The gloves have come off in a tight election race between two Texas congressmen -- and every other article of clothing appears to be fair game as well. Democrats are circulating old newspaper clippings of a 1974 college streaking stunt staged by hundreds of students at what was then called Southwest Texas State University. One of the participants was an 18-year-old freshman named Pete Sessions -- who grew up to become a conservative Republican congressman. A Sessions spokesman says the congressman's "old school days are long gone"...

    A momentous event occured last week and while it was mentioned here, I didn't see the analysis that it warranted.Ultra-left wing, leftie Congressman Martin Frost is running for reelection from Texas in a new district, one created by the corrective redistricting urged by American patriot and bipartisan champion, Texas Congressman Tom DeLay. Frost had been in a district, mostly black, that delivered him left wing votes every two years. He chose to move to a new district and is now running where blacks votes will be few and honest Republicans are many. He is desperate!! He is trying to look...

    Democrats keep up with Republican opponents in campaign fund raising Associated Press AUSTIN (AP) — Texas' Democratic incumbents kept pace last quarter with the fund-raising efforts of their Republican challengers in congressional districts that were redrawn last year to favor the GOP. Republican leaders engineered the redistricting effort to eliminate a half-dozen incumbent Democrats from Congress. Five of the Democratic incumbents will be on the November ballot facing Republican challengers. The five Democrats raised a total of $3.08 million in the quarter ending June 30, compared to their Republican challengers, who raised $3.12 million. "This really shows that the Republicans...

    WASHINGTON, June 23 (UPI) -- Texas Democratic Rep. Martin Frost now faces scrutiny from the same county prosecutor investigating Republican House Majority Leader Tom Delay of Texas. Although the investigation of DeLay by Travis County District Attorney Ronnie Earle, the investigation of Frost only came to light Tuesday. Roll Call, a newspaper covering the U.S. Congress, reported Wednesday that the move to investigate Frost resulted from a request by Republican state Sen. Bob Deuell, who asked Earle to look into possible illegal contributions by Frost's Lone Star Fund. Frost stands accused of funneling money donated by corporations and labor unions...
