Race Update: RI

Friday, December 31st, 2004

Stealing a page from Jacques Chirac’s playbook, Rep. Patrick Kennedy preemptively surrendered to RINO Lincoln Chafee today. The Kennedy name and, more importantly, money, would probably have brought the empty suit into the Senate had he decided to run for the seat. While he left open the possibility of running at a later time, boy […]

Race Profile: New York

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2004

The former first “lady” came into New York with a record of accomplishment that included marrying a man who became President, and… no, wait… gimme a second… there’s gotta be something… nope, that pretty much wraps it up.

Carnahan was appointed to the seat in 2000 as part of a dubious, and probably illegal, deal in which Mel Carnahan’s replacement, Gov. Roger Wilson, told voters that he would appoint Jean to fill […]

Democrats in Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, and Nebraska will face tough reelections, while vulnerable Republicans include Republicans In Name Only Lincoln Chafee (RI), Olympia Snowe (ME), and Senator Mudd, aka Rick Santorum (PA). At worst, the Republican majority will narrow, but conservative […]
