PA Dems Hold Guv Straw Poll Picnic

by Daren

You'd think that the 2010 elections are so far off but in Pennsylvania, the Democratic Primary is only 8 months away.  And with that, the Democratic Party of PA will be hosting a Straw Poll on August 28 during their All-American Picnic in Harrisburg.

So far the field to replace Gov. Ed Rendell is shaping up to be Philadelphia businessman Tom Knox, state Auditor General Jack Wagner, Allegheny County Executive Dan Onorato, Scranton Mayor Chris Doherty and even some rumblings from Montgomery County Commissioner Joe Hoeffel.

The Straw Poll will be open to anyone who wants to attend the picnic.  This could be a significant sign as to which of these potential candidates, or even an insurgent unknown, has the strongest organization built for winning what is sure to be one of the most closely followed races in the nation next year.

It has been awhile since I have posted here.  A lot has changed since that last time.  Not only for the nation but for me as well.  I have recently created a new political and media consulting firm called 3D Political and today I am proud to introduce a new candidate running for the At-Large seat in Montana.

Yesterday, Tyler Gernant announced his candidacy in front of his grandmother's home in Whitetail, Montana.

If you have been following the race for U.S. Senate in Kansas, you have no doubt noticed that Pat Roberts continues to try and use the old strategy of not debating your opponent.  Maybe its because Pat just doesn't know any other way.

Well, it also appears as though a lot of other people and organizations have taken notice to the fact that Pat won't debate Jim Slattery.  In fact, Slattery's campaign has been keeping a running tally of all the invitations that both they and Pat Roberts have received to debate and discuss their positions on the issues.

KS-Sen: Slattery Up with "Apollo"

by Daren

I am a little late to the game with posting this, but I wanted to make sure everyone caught Jim Slattery's new ad that he went up with today called "Apollo."

Continue Reading

It appears as though Senator Roberts and his campaign have a hard time admitting when they are wrong, but then have no problem leaving the rest of us confused when they correct themselves but make it seem like it was no big deal.  Take for example the fact that Roberts has now made changes to their ad but at first, tried to blame the Kansas Democratic Party for merely pointing out their sloppy operation.

KS-Sen: Pat Roberts' Bad Memory

by Daren

Last week, Senator Pat Roberts started running a negative ad campaign against Jim Slattery and the primary election isn't even over.  But it just so happens that in late 2007, Senator Roberts made the claim that he was not going to campaign against whomever became his opponent, but rather he would campaign for the office.

Well, it didn't take supporters of Jim Slattery long to call him out on his lie with this video:

Zimbabwe Needs a Voice

by Daren

UPDATE:  We now have a Friends of Zimbabwe Facebook group as well.

With all that is going on in the U.S. and our own presidential race, it is easy to be consumed, overwhelmed and often blind to what is going on in the rest of the world with regards to the democratic process.  

If you have not been paying attention to the current state of affairs in Zimbabwe, I encouraged you to find out as much as you can because the people of this nation are being starved and oppressed and they need a voice.

A new website has been set up called Friends of Zimbabwe with the mission of providing aid and safety to voters in the upcoming June 27 presidential run-off.

Lets suppose you didn’t catch last nights edition of The Daily Show. So since you missed it, you will want to check out this gem about the Phase II Iraq War Pre-Intelligence report:

You'll love the line Senator Roberts makes about his track shoes.  Well, with Jim Slattery hot on his heels, Roberts may want to get those old track shoes out and start running.

Thank you PA-05 and dkos community

by Daren

I just wanted to say thanks to all of those who followed the Democratic primary for the PA-05 through DailyKos.  And congratulations to Commissioner McCracken on his win.

In case any of you missed it in the newspaper, Bill Cahir has already agreed to host a fundraiser for Commissioner McCracken.  It was an honor to work for Bill.  His commitment to country and community made working this campaign than much easier to do.

Thank you all again and good luck in the General election.

Cahir Tour Ends - Election Day Begins

by Daren

Earlier this evening, Bill ended his five day tour by greeting voters at the Penn State Creamery.  He started the day early however at Cool Beans in Bellefonte and then made stops at Brody's Cafe in Centre Hall, the American Diner in Philipsburg, canvassing in State College, shift change with the Communication Workers of America and then back to canvassing.  We even through in an extra stop in on Curtain Ave. at Penn State.  We just pulled the Cahir-avan up along the side of the street, hopped out and caught hundreds of students as they were coming and going to class.  A lot of them are excited because Bill is the only Penn State grad running in the race.

We'll have more photos and have been adding more all the time from the tour.
