As expected, Louisiana Senator David Vitter has won the GOP primary election. The Republican Senator won on Saturday with 90 percent of the vote as less than 1 percent of precincts reporting. Mr. Vitter was expected to the GOP primary election. Mr. Vitter’s competition was former state Supreme Court Justice Chet Traylor and Nick Accardo. Both of whom were receiving less than 10 percent at the time of publication. The […]
Nearly thirty-two African-Americans are running this election season as Republicans. If you only watched the mainstream media, you would think there were only three: South Carolinas’ Tim Scott, Allen West of Florida, and Republican strategist Angela McGlowan of Mississippi. But there are 28 others who are running under the banner of Lincoln and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the most since reconstruction. Many are running in the deep south and maybe I shouldn’t use this word, but the south appears to be more “progressive” than its northern neighbors.
Many of the candidates have been endorsed by their local teaparties and the always controversial former Vice-Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin. Maybe that is the reason the media isn’t reporting on these candidates, their endorsements from the tea party movement doesn’t jive with their premise that the movement is racist because of their disagreement with President Obama’s policies. Maybe the real truth is the tea parties descent is about ideology and not the color of Obama’s skin.
The New York Times took a look at the many candidates of African descent who are running under the Republican banner. We have added the names of the candidates and a link to each so one can learn more about each of the candidate running this election season.
South Carolina GOP governor’s nominee Nikki Haley. South Carolina state Rep. Nikki Haley cruised to the Republican nomination for governor tonight, a victory that makes her not just the frontrunner for the office this fall but a likely national GOP star. Haley crushed Rep. Gresham Barrett in the runoff race, an expected result given that she took 49 percent of the June 8 primary vote — narrowly missing the chance […]
As South Carolina Republicans prepare for a run-off election in two weeks, 81% of GOP Primary voters say they are likely to vote for Nikki Haley if she is the party’s nominee in September. A Rasmussen Reports election night survey found that 70% say they are likely to vote for Congressman Gresham Barrett if he is the Republican nominee. The two candidates will meet again after yesterday’s primary in which […]
Michigan Democrat Bart Stupak has decided to retire after 9 terms in congress. In a statement he denied that his choice to not seek re-election had anything to do with his Health care vote. Stupak is considered to be one of the conservative congressman in the Democrat party. Many of his constituents expected that he would hold firm on his health care vote because language suggested that some government funding of Abortions could take place. Stupak made a deal that required the President to sign an Executive order that would limit government funds.
The thing I found most surprising in our Florida poll had nothing to do with Charlie Crist- it was Barack Obama’s positive 54/42 approval spread with independents. Out of the 20 different states we’ve polled in the last six months that makes it just the fourth where he’s been on positive ground with independents, joining South Dakota, Delaware, and Arizona. And it’s the first one of those states where he’s […]
For the second month in a row, incumbent Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer is in surprisingly tight races with three potential Republican challengers in California. Most troubling for Boxer in the latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state is her continuing inability to cross the 50% threshold against any of the GOP hopefuls. Incumbents who capture less than 50% of the vote at this stage of the […]
