Republican Big "Cautiously Optimistic" for November

Friday, September 17, 2010

WNYC
I'm cautiously optimistic, but strongly so, that Republicans in the House are going to do so well in November. People are tired of the old politics of villainization, of attacks and they want to see ideas come to the table based on the common sense conservative principles of less taxes, of free enterprise.

Tea Party Uses Obama Organizing Playbook

Friday, September 17, 2010

WNYC
What's really important to note about the Tea Party is everyone is focused on the rallies, everyone's focused on the crazy signs. But what starts happening is they really start organizing, and they start thinking about how they're going to take over the Republican Party and move it to the right. And what they're really doing is they're looking at the liberal's playbook, and they're looking at how Obama won in 2008. And they're saying, 'we need to do that.'

Of Labor and Incumbency: Primaries in Arkansas, Nevada

Tuesday, June 08, 2010

Primary races are scheduled in eleven states today. We are looking at two elections with national implications: Arkansas, where the power of organized labor is at play, and Nevada, where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is hoping a specific GOP pick will enable him to keep his seat. 

In Arkansas, Democratic Senator Blanche Lincoln is facing a run-off against Lt. Gov. Bill Halter. Organized labor groups, both local and national, have thrown their weight behind Halter, saying Lincoln betrayed them by not supporting a public option in health care reform and by voting for NAFTA as a U.S. Representative, in 1993. National labor groups have pumped millions of dollars into the race - leading some analysts to suggest that Arkansas' primary contest has been hijacked by national interests.
