Friday, November 3rd, 2006

H/T Adam C: Kos reports that Democrats are no longer confident of taking out Sen.

The formula for […]

Closing the Deal

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

After abandoing Sen. Conrad Burns months ago, the NRSC has caught up with everyone else and placed Montana back on its map.  The NRSC has purchased over $300,000 in television time between this past weekend and the election.  The expenditure is well more than a drop in the bucket in media-cheap Montana.
For the past year, […]

Friday, October 27th, 2006

There are at least two other people who haven´t given up on the reelection of Sen. Conrad Burns.  The President and VP will both be in Montana making appearances on his behalf in the coming week.  The visits will highlight for Montanans the important differences between Burns and his far out opponent.  While some have […]

Here is a leaked list of NRSC targets for the final two weeks.  Notice anything strange?
According to Sen. Dole & Co., Sen. Conrad Burns, who is in a statistical tie with challenger Jon Tester, is “done”.  At the same time, the Rhode Island race is a “toss-up”.  This is a rather unique read on the […]

Rumors of His Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Friday, October 20th, 2006

With many, this blogger not included, having written him off, Sen. Conrad Burns appears to have bounced back in his Senate race against far left favorite Jon Tester.  Recent polls had shown Tester jumping out to a high single digits margin, but now Rasmussen Reports has the race statistically tied, with Burns now just […]

Tester Not Comfortable

Thursday, October 12th, 2006

Although enjoying a slight lead in recent polls, Montana Senate President Jon Tester is quite obviously not comfortabe with his lead.  Why else would he have said specifically that he does not support Illinois`third Senator´s Presidential bid?  Normally, candidates who feel comfortable enough to speak openly about Presidential candidates in a non-Presidential cycle say things […]

Democrats Continue Rediculous Attacks

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

Topping their “convict now, ask questions later” attack on Sen. Conrad Burns for the other supposed scandal, Democrats are now attacking the Senator for flying on a plane owned by a company against whom he has worked for the past year.  Burns’s office has said that he will, in accordance with Senate rules, reimburse the company […]

Crimson Tide

Tuesday, August 15th, 2006

Amid all the doom and gloom that has been readily apparent in Republican chatter for months, a funny thing happened on the way to November.  A crimson tide started rising.  With the puppet masters of the Democrat Party more and more excited about their prospects, they have made the mistake of actually showing people what they´re […]

Burns Bounces Back

Friday, August 11th, 2006

In spite of a recent spat over Burns’ comments to Virginia firefighters, Sen. Conrad Burns is now tied with far left rival Jon Tester.  This is significant because it is the best Burns has faired since January, the last time he was tied with Tester.  Burns’ negatives are also down, as it is now only […]
