Ohio Congressman Dennis Kucinich is worried about the 2010 census figures. He sent a letter to supporters fearing that he may lose his seat in the House of Representatives. Ohio lost 2 congressional seats and since the State went Republican, it is thought that gerrymandered districts will favor the GOP. No Worries, even if he loses his house seat, he will still have his wife Elizabeth! Rep. Kucinich sent this […]
Gallup has held out quite a long time from imposing a likely voter screen on its generic ballot, but that will be coming to an end next week. The pollster suggests that this could result in a massive swing toward the GOP, perhaps even showing a double-digit GOP win: Additionally, preliminary modeling of the likely electorate using Gallup’s traditional likely voter questions (more on this next week) suggests that if […]
Congressman Joe Wilson received national attention earlier this year when he shouted, “You Lie” during President Obama’s State of the Union Address. Following that outburst a rather under the wire congressman was in the spot light.
Soon after, tens of thousands of dollars where given to his opponent, Democrat Rob Miller to defeat Wilson. After Republicans got wind of the mass donations to Miller, Wilson began receiving donations from all over the country as well. When it was over, both candidates had more than a million dollars each for their campaigns.
A war, if you will, of sorts, took place between the two candidates early on. One side wanting to rid itself of a disrespectful incumbent and to replace him with a younger Iraqi war officer. And the other wanting to hold on to a leader who is willing to speak out against an over zealous executive.
Former Ohio Rep. Jim Traficant will run for his old House seat this fall as an independent. The Mahoning County Board of Elections, which met Monday evening to decide whether the former congressman had qualified for the 17th District ballot, determined that Traficant had secured 11 more petition signatures than he needed. The announcement was reported by several local news outlets. The decision caps a one-month battle Traficant’s supporters had […]

One of the frustrations of political challengers is getting the incumbent to debate. Ray Lutz, a Democratic candidate in the 52nd Congressional District in eastern San Diego County, has a novel approach: a hunger strike until one-term Republican incumbent Duncan D. Hunter agrees to debate. “Until Hunter steps up to the plate, I’ll be stepping away from the dinner plate,” Lutz said. The hunger strike is set to officially begin […]
(Columbia, SC – July 14, 2010) Liberal Democrat Rob Miller’s campaign released a inaccurate and unsourced attack on Representative Joe Wilson this afternoon, trying to link him to lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Joe Wilson has never met Jack Abramoff or taken money from him according to the Federal Election Commission (Source FEC), Wilson sure has met General David Petraeus, who currently commands U.S. Forces in Afghanistan. Just this morning, South Carolina […]

Gallup is showing a big change in 2010 generic congressional ballot. The GOP is now six points ahead. Whats more is that while those who identify themselves as Republican, Democrat or Independent are nearly the same, Independents are more likely to vote Republican in the upcoming election. These numbers are near 1994 levels when Republicans took Congress.
I guess what is good enough for Grandma is not good enough for Top congressional leadership, but it is good enough for you and me. This from FOXNews: Select congressional leadership staffers — some of whom wrote the health insurance act — are not governed by new rules governing millions of Americans and the rest of their colleagues on how they buy insurance — and the special exemption has the […]
