    Sad news via Radio Iowa regarding the passing of Libertarian Party Senate candidate Douglas Butzier: The pilot who died in a plane crash near Dubuque late last night was the Libertarian candidate for Iowa’s U.S. Senate seat. The family of Douglas Butzier has confirmed Butzier was piloting the plane that crashed near the Dubuque Regional Airport at about 11 p.m. Monday. No one else was in the plane. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, the single-engine plane took off from the Ankeny Regional Airport at about 10 p.m. and crashed at about 11 p.m., about a mile north of the...
  • On Nov. 4, Joe Biden Could Become the Most Powerful Man in the World

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | October 6, 2014 | Joel B. Pollak
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Vice President Joe Biden is a complete idiot. That truth, reinforced by a string of recent foreign policy gaffes, is supported by evidence too great to summarize in one article. Suffice it to say that Uncle Joe's incompetence is stipulated by all political parties. He apparently believes he still has a shot to be President. There is no chance of that--but on Nov. 4, Biden could suddenly become the most powerful man in the U.S., and therefore the world. That is because the fight for control of the U.S. Senate is shaping up to be far closer than it ought...

    A few weeks after the national Republican Party moved in to revamp the campaign and begin an ad blitz aimed at saving incumbent Sen. Pat Roberts' job, a new poll shows him facing more of an uphill battle than ever against independent businessman Greg Orman.

    The most important words printed in The New York Times since "REAGAN EASILY BEATS CARTER" were from a front-page article last Sunday about how, after six years of Obama, the federal judiciary is now dominated by Democratic appointees. Edward Whelan, head of the Ethics and Public Policy Center, responded to this by saying: "The best way for conservative voters to prevent further damage to the courts is to swing the Senate to Republican control in the elections this November." He's absolutely right. Turn that into a mnemonic, sew it on needlepoint pillows, include it in your wedding vows, right-wingers. For...
  • Sheldon Adelson 'Roved' Again?

    Just as a high stakes gambler in the wrong place at the wrong time might get "rolled" from time to time, Las Vegas casino mogul Sheldon Adelson appears ripe to get "Roved" yet again based upon reports he's "donated $10 million to a Karl Rove-backed outfit boosting Republican Senate candidates and promised a similar amount to an allied group focused on House races."
  • Kentucky: Your Primary is Our Business. Time to Send McConnell Packing! Levin Endorses Bevin.

    The Great One, Mark Levin, endorses Matt Bevin, primary candidate running against Senate Minority Leader, Mitch McConnell, for Kentucky U.S. Senate. Enough of the status quo and politicians who claim to be Tea Party leaders who continue selling us out. I’ve published clips and rants about Rand Paul ad nauseaum. I am not here to disparage him, but to show the implications of what his half-hearted, “soft” and veiled support of the Tea Party will mean for us nationally. If it was good for Rubio, it’s good for him. Why should he be exempt from criticism? He’s just as devious,...

    Conservative television personality Glenn Beck on Saturday offered Tea Party supporters an unsavory comparison between Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and President Obama. "Mitch McConnell is as big of a danger to our country as Barack Obama is," Beck said during FreePAC Kentucky, a conservative event that promoted two Tea Party challengers over their Republican incumbents in the Senate. McConnell, a five-term Senator, is facing a challenge in the November elections from Kentucky businessman Matt Bevin, who was also speaking at the event. Speaking to McConnell supporters, Beck offered a grave prediction: "You're guy's going out of business very...

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Conservative activists from across the country came to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell's hometown on Saturday to insist that their fight against established Republicans in the 2014 midterm elections isn't over. The downtown Louisville rally served as a lift for McConnell challenger Matt Bevin, a Louisville businessman who wants to capitalize on the same tea party energy that helped Rand Paul defeat McConnell's choice for the state's other Senate seat two years ago. The event also was intended as a morale booster as the so-called liberty movement tries to put its imprint on an election cycle where...

    The Hill ^ | March 15, 2014 | Cameron Joseph
    Democrats are facing their toughest Michigan Senate fight in two decades. A sour national political climate, a little-known candidate and big spending by conservative outside groups have given Republicans a real shot at winning an open seat and boosted their chances at seizing Senate control. Republicans had all but written off the Democratic-leaning state last summer after they failed to recruit either Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Mich.) or Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.) to run, leaving them with former Michigan Secretary of State Terri Lynn Land (R) as their nominee. But President Obama’s dismal poll numbers, millions spent by conservative groups and...

    Brother and sister patriots, I speak to you as family because I believe if we are to effectively push back in opposition to Obama and company's all-out-assault on our freedoms, liberty and culture, we (who love America as founded) must stand together as family. In a nut shell, Obama and Democrats/Progressives are out of control. On every issue from the environment to gun control they use the same tactic. Obama hits the airways and makes a totally mindless emotional pleas to low info voters. Arrogantly, Obama then expects to be given carte blanche to trample the Constitution at will....

    Boston Herald ^ | April 3, 3013 | Hillary Chabot, Joe Battenfeld
    U.S. Rep. Stephen F. Lynch, the underdog in the Democratic special Senate election, blasted national Dems for their unfair backing of his rival U.S. Rep. Edward J. Markey and for blocking donations to him, but vowed that he would outwork his opponent to clinch a win. “They haven’t been fair,” Lynch said of the national Democrats who he says have funneled donations and some union support Markey’s way. “No they haven’t been fair. I think they’ve done their best to discourage people from sending me contributions from Washington. They’ve basically said Markey’s our guy, don’t give to Lynch.” In a...

    Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is wading into the nation's most incendiary Senate race this week, with the launch of a new statewide, six-figure ad campaign to help Missouri Republican Todd Akin. Business Insider has learned that Paul's political action committee, RANDPAC, will go on air Wednesday with a new ad attacking Akin's opponent, Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill, for her vote against Paul's amendment to block U.S. aid to Pakistan, Egypt, and Libya. "Claire McCaskill works with Barack Obama to send our money overseas to radicals who attack our embassies, burn our flag, and kill our diplomats," the narrator says. "What...

    The Washington Times ^ | 10/15/12 | Paige Winfield Cunningham
    A Republican polling firm has GOP Rep. Todd Akin up by four points over Democratic incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill in their hard-fought Missouri Senate race. Mr. Akin led his opponent 49 percent to 45 percent in a survey conducted for the Citizens United Victory Fund by Wenzel Strategies, one of just two polls to give him the upper hand after his party all but abandoned him in August for his widely condemned comments that victims of "legitimate" rape are unlikely to become pregnant. That's because Mr. Akin led among independents by a 50 percent to 41 percent margin, according to...

    The National Memo ^ | 9/24/12 | Axel Tonconogy
    Appearing today at a fundraiser in Kirkwood, Missouri for Senate candidate Todd Akin, former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich offered the support and encouragement that few others in his party have dared give. Abandoned by the GOP after his infamous “legitimate rape” comments, and crucified by the liberal and conservative media alike, Akin vowed to remain in the Senate race for the “long haul” and emerge victorious. After sharing his toxic views on women’s health, Akin’s conservative donors and supporters pulled out in droves, denouncing the candidate’s statements. This despite the fact that in 2011 Akin had co-authored a bill...

    Written off by many in his own party a mere month ago, Republican Rep. Todd Akin has been slowly rebuilding his Senate campaign after apologizing for inflammatory remarks about pregnancy and rape. Now Akin is approaching a critical week that could determine whether his re-emerging campaign can gain enough momentum to put Missouri back in the battleground column as Republicans attempt to win control of the Senate from Democrats. Tuesday is the deadline for Akin to get a court order to drop his challenge of Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. But Akin says he won't do so. Instead, Akin plans to...

    Missouri Republican Todd Akin has begun moving toward ending his candidacy after his remarks on rape and abortion provoked a firestorm, a top Republican said. "Akin is taking concrete steps to withdraw by tomorrow at 5:00 p.m.," a senior Republican told BuzzFeed, adding that Akin could still change his mind. But a Republican close to Akin said his position hasn't changed: He's still in the race. Tomorrow afternoon is an important deadline: If he files papers to end his candidacy in Jefferson City tomorrow he can end his candidacy unilaterally; after that, he would have to file an application in...

    Feingold will fail to bring Wisconsin forward By Matt Payne This year’s Senate race has turned out to be a challenging one for Wisconsin’s Senator Russ Feingold. In fact the most recent aggregate from pollster.com puts his opponent, business owner and political newcomer Ron Johnson, ahead by one percentage point. The senator, first elected in 1992, is now running in one of the toughest reelection bids he’s ever faced. Johnson has not only shown his ability to run an effective grassroots campaign, but was able to effectively outraise Feingold last reporting period. The race, once thought to be a safe...
