  • Establishment GOP donors in Tennessee resisting Marsha Blackburn's Senate campaign

    Rep. Marsha Blackburn is meeting resistance from wealthy Republican donors in Tennessee, an establishment-oriented crowd more comfortable with former Gov. Phil Bredesen, the conservative firebrand’s Democratic opponent in the state’s competitive, closely watched Senate race. Republican financiers, titans of industry in Tennessee, are still gloomy about the retirement of Sen. Bob Corker, a conservative pragmatist. Many are sitting on their wallets as the crucial, 100-day mark to the midterm elections approaches. After a lifetime raising millions of dollars for GOP causes and candidates, some are even donating to Bredesen, whom they view as a centrist who will buck Senate Minority...
  • Red State Democrats Really, REALLY Don't Want To Discuss SCOTUS Pick

    07/11/2018 4:54:17 PM PDT · by jazusamo · 19 replies ^ | July 11, 2018 | Matt Vespa
    Judge Brett Kavanaugh is going to be a weeks-long torment for some on the Hill—and I’m talking about red state Democrats. Senate Republican moderates Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski have been very receptive to Kavanaugh’s nomination, easing pressure from the right that they could sink this SCOTUS nominee if they defect. That could be the case, but for now, pressure has ramped up on Sens. Jon Tester (D-MT), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Joe Donnelly (D-IN), and maybe Bill Nelson (D-FL). Nelson needs help. Republican Gov. Rick Scott is outworking him on Hispanic outreach, and he’s beating Nelson...

    A group aligned with the Democratic Party seeking to help left-leaning candidates in swing districts says it has raised nearly $2 million so far this year to help flip the House and Senate. Swing Left, a newly-formed group founded by Massachusetts-based writer and teacher Ethan Todras-Whitehill, told The Hill in an email that the group has raised $1.87 million for both incumbent Democrats and challengers in swing districts since January.The total grows to just over $4 million when taking into account the group's full fundraising amounts since it began launching swing district funds in late 2017, according to a spokesman...
  • No records of the small business Senate candidate Jacky Rosen claims she built(NV)

    07/11/2018 8:08:36 AM PDT · by rktman · 24 replies ^ | 7/10/2018 | John Sexton
    Earlier today I wrote about the tough map Democrats are facing in the Senate. One of the places where Democrats hope to unseat a Republican incumbent is in Nevada where Democratic Rep. Jacky Rosen is challenging incumbent Sen. Dean Heller. One of the qualifications Rosen has repeatedly cited as part of her campaign for the seat is that she built a small business as a computer programmer which her campaign claims she ran between 1993 and 2002. But Monday, when everyone was focused on President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, the Reno Gazette-Journal reported that there is little documentation from any...

    President Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe into obstruction of justice by the president will wrap up by Sept. 1 because allowing it to continue longer could improperly influence the mid-term elections in November, according to a report on Sunday.

    A Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee says he is worried that the Russians “never left,” raising the specter that Moscow is looking to interfere in the upcoming midterm elections through cyber or other means. “I am concerned that the Russians never left,” Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) told CBS News when asked about his concerns about threats to the 2018 midterm elections. Quigley also alleged that Russia-linked hackers breached “somewhere between 20 and 40 state board of elections,” including the Illinois voter database, in 2016 and alleged that states are not prepared for future interference efforts by Russia. “First, they...

    Hard left communist agenda is not something most voters will consider The Democrat Party leadership, and the candidates running for Congress and state legislative positions, are running on pretty much only one thing . . . that they are anti-Trump. The Democrats have no platform. They can’t run against the GOP tax cuts, because they know “we want to raise your taxes” would go over like a lead balloon. Immigration is proving to be a losing argument, as is gun control. Both issues have a history of being a losing issue for the Democrats. They test the waters every once...

    The Boston Herald ^ | 07-03-2018 | Herald Staff
    We must not sink to this level. Hard-working, law-abiding Americans are witness to bad behavior and victims of cultural bullying every day. Last weekend about 20 people protesting the nation’s immigration policies were arrested in Boston. Civil unrest — however inconvenient and damaging to the general public — has been fully sanctioned by progressives and any opposition is pilloried. Each disruption benefits from politicians and media who draw fraudulent comparisons to the civil rights movement. Online Twitter mobs are “dox-ing” (releasing personal information) and intimidating private citizens who voice their opposition to open borders. On a daily basis, concerned Americans...

    The proposal to split California into three separate states is gaining traction just months ahead of the 2018 midterms, with many voters agreeing that the Golden State is simply too diverse and large to properly govern. The movement -dubbed by many as Cal3- calls for the division of California into three smaller states; each anchored by a major metropolitan center serving as the territory’s capital. While the direct plan has yet to be revealed, many are calling for the creation of California with Los Angeles as the state capital, Northern California with San Francisco as the capital, and Southern California...
  • Vanity - Crowley polling had him up 36 points on Ocasio-Cortez - NY TIMES.

    Interesting tidbit via the NY times revealing that Democrat, Congressman, Joe Crowley's internal polling revealed the he was up 36 points over his challenger, Democrat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Of course we all know the fifteen point "political slaughter" that befell the stunned, Joe Crowley, last Tuesday evening, in the 14thNYCD. One of Democrat, Nancy Pelosi's, favorites, Joe Crowley, received a most crushing blow in his defeat handed him by Ms. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. I tried to search the internet for pre-primary election polls, but came up empty, even on "Real Clear Politics" site. It appears the Fake News" pollsters scrubbed their numbers...

    An NBC News/Marist Poll has mixed results for Republicans in Ohio. Republican gubernatorial candidate Mike DeWine leads his Democrat rival, former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau director Richard Cordray, by four points, 46 percent to 42 percent. But the picture is not so encouraging for Republicans in the U.S. Senate race, where incumbent Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) leads the GOP nominee, Rep. Jim Renacci (R-OH) by 13 points, 51 percent to 38 percent. “This survey of 946 adults was conducted June 17th through June 22nd, 2018 by The Marist Poll sponsored and funded in partnership with NBC News . . ....

    What's as risk in the upcoming 2018 election? According to San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi, nothing less than "civilization as we know it." Talking to Rolling Stone reporter Tom Dickenson, Pelosi sounds the warning: Pelosi is charting the strategic course of the 2018 election, raising millions of dollars and boosting the recruits who would plug into a political machine she's honed for nearly 15 years. The stakes could not be higher: "Civilization as we know it is at risk in this election," Pelosi says. "We have to win." But as she sits in an Iowa pub on a warm Sunday...

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Saturday tweeted a picture that has typically been used online to depict gang members, saying they are House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's (D-Calif.) “campaign committee for the take back of the House.” “Nancy Pelosi introduces her campaign committee for the take back of the House,” he tweeted with a picture of a group of tattooed men holding up gang signs. Huckabee’s tweet comes during a heated debate about immigration, as House leaders last week postponed a vote on a broad immigration bill, acknowledging they did not have the votes. Pelosi on Thursday said...

    A panel of pollsters is predicting that Democrats will win back 23 seats in this year’s midterm elections, enough to win back the house majority. Hill.TV’s “What America’s Thinking” canvassed its panel of pollsters on how many seats Democrats will gain. The average answer for the first-ever Poll of Pollsters was 23 seats, the show announced Friday. That’s exactly the number that Democrats need to flip control of the chamber from Republicans. (What a coincidence) “I feel like if 2016 taught us nothing, it is we should not make predictions. So I’m doing this under duress I’ll have you know,”...

    Conservative columnist George Will is making the argument to vote against Republicans in the upcoming midterm elections. In a piece published Friday in the Washington Post, Will says that President Trump's "zero tolerance" policy at the border was "the most telegenic example of misrule" and it provided “fresh if redundant evidence for the principle by which” independents and moderate Republicans should vote. That principle he says is that the number of Republicans in office must be “substantially reduced.” "The principle: The congressional Republican caucuses must be substantially reduced. So substantially that their remnants, reduced to minorities, will be stripped of...

    Michael R. Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, has decided to throw his political clout and personal fortune behind the Democratic campaign to take control of the House of Representatives this year, directing aides to spend tens of millions of dollars in an effort to expel Republicans from power. Mr. Bloomberg — a political independent who has championed left-of-center policies on gun control, immigration and the environment — has approved a plan to pour at least $80 million into the 2018 election, with the bulk of that money going to support Democratic congressional candidates, advisers to Mr....

    In the Sunshine State, Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson, is banking on incumbency and gun control to get him over the top. He’s been lucky throughout his Senate career in facing opponents who haven’t been the best, especially during his 2000 re-election campaign. This year is different—and he knew it. Last year, Politico reported that Nelson met with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other Democrats ahead what will be a true contest. He’ll be fighting for his political life and he needs money. Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who is term-limited, has tossed his hat into the ring. Despite his recent...

    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's policy of taking immigrant children from their parents at the southern border may have been designed to push Democrats to the negotiating table in Congress — but it could end up costing Republican lawmakers. "Democrats can fix their forced family breakup at the Border by working with Republicans on new legislation, for a change!" Trump wrote on Twitter Saturday. "This is why we need more Republicans elected in November." But the policy, which has separated some 2,000 children from their parents in just six weeks, could have the opposite effect as anxious Republican lawmakers fear...
