A number of conservatives, especially those in the blogosphere, have heaped scorn on Dr. James Dobson for the comments he made that appeared in today`s edition of US News and World Report. While I personally disagree with Dr. Dobson`s assessment that former Sen. Fred Thompson is not a “Christian”, many are getting far too carried […]

DeKalb County Chief Executive Vernon Jones has decided, in the wake of an utter lack of viable candidates, to challenge Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Jones has set his sights so high that his first fundraiser went at $100 a plate. Jones is in the race because Democrats failed to recruit Rep. Jim Marshall, and Rep. John Barrow […]
Former Rep. Scott McInnis said in a press release yesterday that he would not be a candidate for Senate. The decision is surprising in light of the fact that he had said early on that there was no question that he would run. McInnis`s exit clears the way for conservatives, for whom he would have […]
Unfortunately, he`s not a Republican. Democrat Lt. Gov. Bill Halter has thus far refused to rule out a challenge to Sen. Mark Pryor. Halter, though popular, is not nearly as popular or well known as the incumbent. What`s more, all of the state`s constitutional officers save Halter have already acted in support of Pryor, making […]
Sen. Arlen Specter announced remarkably early that he plans to seek yet another term in 2010. Specter, a chief bane to conservatives throughout his career, will begin fundraising in earnest next month. Needless to say, much can change in four years, so Specter`s announcement should be taken with caution, as his health has hampered him […]
Three months into the 2008 cycle, one indicator of attention to detail and overall competence strongly suggests that Chuck Schumer`s DSCC will once again throttle the NRSC just as it did in the last cycle. The DSCC`s website suggests that it is serious about expanding its majority. For over a month now, it has been regularly […]
Today, the Senate began debate on legislation that would ask the President to withdraw American troops by March of next year. Some Republicans have called this a surrender resolution. To an extent, they`re right. To an extent, though, the Democrats are correct in saying that we need an end game in Iraq.
Since the “war” ended - […]
Gov. Mike Easley announced last week that he will not challenge Sen. Elizabeth Dole. The decision comes as a great relief to the GOP, as Dole has trailed in recent polling. While not among the country`s most popular Senators, Dole is now looking pretty good, as other potential challengers trail her by as many as 15 points. […]
New Hampshire Democrats swung and missed on their third choice of a challenger for Sen. John Sununu. First, they wanted former Gov. Jeanne Shaheen to challenge him. She opted out. Then they targeted Gov. and potential self-financier Gary Hirshberg has backed down. Apparently DSCC Chair Chucky Schumer is losing his touch.
While Sununu is not yet […]
Regular readers know that I´m no fan of Sen. McCain. Sen. Kyl is. He´s also one of the most reliable conservatives in the Senate. For that reason, this is worth a read.
