    Third Debate with Stephen A. Douglas at Jonesboro, Illinois September 15, 1858 MR. DOUGLAS' SPEECH. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN: I appear before you today in pursuance of a previous notice, and have made arrangements with Mr. Lincoln to divide time, and discuss with him the leading political topics that now agitate the country. Prior to 1854 this country was divided into two great political parties known as Whig and Democratic. These parties differed from each other on certain questions which were then deemed to be important to the best interests of the Republic. Whig and Democrats differed about a bank, the...

    A Republican legislator from San Antonio has proposed a bill that would outlaw straight party ticket voting in Texas. State Sen. Jeff Wentworth says straight-ticket voting is a detriment to the system. The Dallas Morning News reports, for its Monday editions, that Wentworth calls the straight-ticket method "lazy."

    First, the good news. The good news is that Ken Bentsen finished third, ending his hopes of winning Phil Gramm's Senate seat. I believe he was Cornyn's only real threat of competition in the Fall. Bentsen is the type of RAT that McAuliffe is promoting in the South --> liberal to the core but able to fool the yellow dogs into thinking he's conservative (aka. Warner, Edwards). Cornyn will wipe the floor with the winner of the Kirk/Morales runoff. Now the bad news: State Sen. Jeff Wentworth, the biggest RINO in Texas politics, narrowly won re-nomination over Shields, 51-49 %....
