Dems Bail on Pederson; Allen Appears Safer

Thursday, October 5th, 2006

National Democrats have decided to cut their losses and pull $1 million in advertising out of the Arizona Senate race.  The decision comes at a time when national Democrats are peaking, and if Pederson does not look viable now, this one is over.  The decision comes after Democrats have spent millions, including a nearly $9 […]

Webb´s Race Problem

Tuesday, September 26th, 2006

Democrat Jim Webb declined to say Tuesday whether he had ever used a racial epithet to describe African-Americans, the AP reports.  Race problems have haunted his opponent Sen. George Allen, but could prove a bigger problem for Webb.  Webb will need a heavy turnout in Northern Virginia, an area with a high black population.  While […]

Monday, September 11th, 2006

Now that Labor Day has passed, the campaigns enter their final stretch.  Here’s a quick glance at where things stand going into the home stretch:
Republican Held Seats
Arizona - Despite dipping deep into his personal fortune, former Democrat State Party Chair Jim Pederson has been unable to cut into Sen. Jon Kyl’s solid lead.  Democrats were once […]

More Allen Negatives

Tuesday, August 29th, 2006

People make mistakes.  Some are worse than others.  Some are regretted; others are not.  Some are “youthful indiscressions”.  Some are in the heat of the moment.  Some are one time instances; others are repeated regularly.  All can be forgiven, but some cannot be forgotten.
Yet another story about now-Senator George Allen has surfaced.  This time, he […]

Macaca Comment Hurting Allen, But How Much?

Tuesday, August 22nd, 2006

Two polls from different organizations have now come out since Sen. George Allen´s unfortunate Macaca comment.  Both show the same result: that Allen’s once large lead has evaporated.  That the comments have hurt him is not really debatable.  How much they have hurt him, though, is.

For starters, those who are primarily concerned with the racial […]

All Over But the….

Thursday, July 27th, 2006

In Virginia, that is.  Three polls (two of which were not interactive, and therefore are credible) have been released showing incumbent Sen. George Allen at about 50% and with a ten point lead.  The default vote in Virginia still goes Republican, and Democrats have much higher priorities than this one.  The next election Sen. Allen […]

Wictory Wednesday Whistles Dixie

Wednesday, June 28th, 2006

This week Wictory Wednesday is supporting the reelection of Virginia Senator George Allen.
Sen. Allen is a fiscal conservative and introduced legislation to require a balanced budget.  He also supported a law that would dock Congressional pay if members failed to produce a budget by October 1.  The idea that legislators should be penalized for failure […]

Liberal Hypocricy

Monday, May 8th, 2006

Two weeks ago was the beginning, and likely end, of a supposed scandal involving Sen. George Allen.  Many of his classmates were supposedly surprised to learn that he planned to run for President due to his supposed sympathy with the Confederacy.  Liberals threw a fit, suggesting that this was the effective end of his Presidential […]

Allen Draws Challenger

Thursday, February 9th, 2006

Contrary to earlier reports, James Webb, Secretary of the Navy under President Reagan, announced earlier this week that he will challenge Sen. George Allen this year.  The challenge will be successful only insofar as it will force Allen to spend more time campaigning for Senate and less time campaigning for President, something that will surely […]

Delusional Democrats

Friday, November 11th, 2005

In light of the Kaine win in the Virginia gubernatorial election, Sen. Chuck Schumer is now saying that he will “look ‘very carefully’“at a challenge to Sen. George Allen. Unfortunately for Schumer, the only Democrat who had any chance of defeating Allen already declined to run, rightly recognizing the fact that, even for him, it […]
