EVEN WITH A REPUBLICAN OUSTING OBAMA…..THE SENATE IS KEY…..WITHOUT A REPUBLICAN MAJORITY NOTHING WILL BE REPEALED, AMENDED OR PASSED…..STAY TUNED…
Voters take to the polls to cast their ballots in Arizona, Maine, Virginia, Nevada, North Dakota
1.) ARIZONA CONGRESS
The race to fill the seat left open by the retirement of former Rep. Gabby Giffords, who stepped down from Congress in January, takes place today in Arizona’s 8th congressional district. Ron Barber, Giffords’ former district director, and Jesse Kelly, a former marine who also ran against Giffords in 2010, will face off in the Republican-leaning district. Polling shows Barber in the lead but the race is far from certain.
When Republican Senator Olympia Snowe announced her decision to retire in February, the Senate map for Democrats briefly looked very exciting. Maine is considered to be a relatively blue state, and the state boasted a deep bench of potential Democratic contenders. But both parties were thrown for a loop when former Independent Gov. Angus King announced he would be jumping in the race. With many assuming King would ultimately end up caucusing with the Democrats (King has so far refused to commit to either party,) the more-well known Dems in the state opted not to enter the race, while Republicans continued to enter in droves. Six Republicans and four Democrats are on the ballot today, with an interesting three-way race soon to follow.
3. VIRGINIA, NEVADA AND NORTH DAKOTA
What do Virginia, Nevada and North Dakota have in common? They’re all states with closely-watched, tightly contested Senate races this fall. With Democrats holding onto the narrow majority in the Senate, Republicans are hoping to potentially pick-up seats in Virginia and North Dakota, while Democrats are hoping to pick one up in Nevada.
VIRGINIA: A RACE BETWEEN MICKEY MOUSE AND DONALD DUCK….TIM KAINE IS A DEMOCRAT HACK AND GEORGE ALLEN IS A DOOFUS…HOWEVER…WE NEED THE SEAT IN THE SENATE.
