  •  Mark Kirk needs to be defeated next time he is (5+ / 0-)

    up for Election. No blue state should be electing Republians to the US Senate.  We must make it our mission to do massive GOTV especially for Senate races. We should aim for no Republican Senators in blue states. We are working on that for 2016 in PA, I will be working my tail off to get Toomey out as he is a disgusting disgrace.

    No way should Kirk be representing Illinois.

      the blue trifecta of Gov, and 2 Democratic Senators, so can bluer states like IL and NH and such.

    •  Toomey is dead meat in '16 imo; hopefully Kirk too (3+ / 0-)

      Kirk has a moderate image, and his struggle to recover from a stroke may have garnered some sympathy, so I think he'll be tougher.  But in a presidential year where the presidential candidate should be winning by 15-20 points, I think we should be able to do it.

      Same concept with Ron Johnson.  He's too nutty for Wisconsin in a presidential year.  Of these blue state targets, I think Ayotte and Portman will be toughest, as they have center-right images in light-blue battleground states.  

      •  see my comment re. Kirk above. Why should any (2+ / 0-)

        one have sympathy for that jerk when he shows NONE by voting against Obamacare, employment insurance, food stamps.  

        He came back from his brush with death as coldhearted as ever.  He needs TO GO!
