Greetings, I am writing this diary to express my wish that the Progressive Community get behind Betty Sutton for Congress. Sutton is a dedicated public servant and she is a true Prigressive.
According to Slate, Warren is associated with several anti-semetic statements and actions. The article is written by Christopher Hitchens. Maybe this will be the straw that will break Warren's speaking at the inauguration.
So like all of you, I'm pretty upset about the Rick Warren thing. I think that Obama was wrong to invite someone who is so anti-gay. Now, I do think that Obama has a way to make up for this, by having the Rev. Gene Robinson offer an opening prayer...
The diary is being written in regards to the ridiculous comments cheering the defeat of Bill Jefferson. First of all, I must say, Jefferson is a dishonor to the caucus. He had a horrible voting record and a worse ethical record. It was still the sensible decision to vote for him for reelection yesterday.
As I continue on my roadtrip of potentially competitive Senate Races, I will now stop to explain my project. I will first go through the Senate Races that Republicans hold that may be able to be taken. I will then go through the defense Senate Races. Finally, I may go to the governorships after that.
So far we have had:
I have also found this handy PPP link about the races.
If fate continues, Democrats will win this seat in 2010 (and lose it in 2016). This seat has traded parties since the legendary Sam Ervin retired in the year 1974. Lets hope fate has one more cycle.
Senator Richard Burr is the GOP incumbent...
This is Part Two of my tour through the Potentially Competitive Senate Races in 2010. Part One: Ohio Senate 2010 can be found here. Today I am focusing on the Kentucky Senate Race. Fresh off of a 53-47% win, Senator Mitch McConnell is heading back to the Senate. His Junior Partner Jim Bunning may not be so lucky....
According to MN SOS Website Coleman only is ahead by 204 votes. Franken is closing in...
This is the first in what will be a series of diaries previewing the Senate seats that may be competitive in 2010. This is the last cycle that we will be on "offense" before we need to revert back to defense in 2012. Ohio is among those states that has a potential to be competive. Back in 2004, the Incumbent George Voinovich won reelection with 64% of the vote over then State Senator Eric Fingerhut.
Voinovich has dropped in popularity, with a Februrary 2008 SUSA Poll showing him with a 42% approval rating. Several PPP Polls showed him either slighty ahead, tied, or even behind possible challengers. I will preview the possible candidates...
I know that the results from the 2008 contest are not all in yet, but I have already given some thought to who Barack Obama will face for reelection. The scenario I see involves Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, Bobby Jindal, Haley Barbour and probably some other governors such as Tim Pawlenty, Mark Sanford, Bob Riley. Looking at this list makes me think that Bobby Jindal is by far the toughest. That is why I am proposing that we make sure he loses reelection in 2011.
