    Roll Call ^ | Updated: October 18, 2014 | Alexis Levinson
    With less than four weeks until Election Day, the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s independent expenditure arm is shifting resources to increase its investment in six states, including South Dakota and Georgia. The NRSC has moved $1 million to South Dakota, plus another $1.45 million to Georgia. In South Dakota, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee made a $1 million television ad buy this week, on the heels of tightening poll numbers that showed its candidate, Rick Weiland, gaining ground. In Georgia, a new poll suggests a runoff is likely. The NRSC also is upping its investment in four other states: Alaska,...

    This week brings primary votes for three senators on three different days, with the toughest challenge coming to a Democrat endorsed by President Barack Obama. But first comes mainstream Republicans trying to ward off tea party challengers in Kansas and Tennessee. Sen. Pat Roberts (R., Kan.) on Tuesday will finally see if the unforced errors he’s committed will cost him a chance for a fourth term. Mr. Roberts, 78 years old, has led radiologist Milton Wolf in all of the state’s polling, though Mr. Wolf has narrowed the gap in recent weeks. The Senate Conservatives Fund, which spent $580,000 to...

    Feeling a wave of anti-incumbent fervor taking hold in primary races across the nation, 18-year incumbent Senator Pat Roberts, Republican of Kansas, has been polled as losing ground to a doctor and political newcomer. A poll commissioned by the Senate Conservatives Fund, a political action committee, shows Dr. Milton Wolf within single digits - 9 points - of Roberts. This Tuesday, August 5th, the states of Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, and Washington State will be holding primary contests. Yet more primaries are scheduled after that in other states, leading up to the general election in November. Political observers are watching many...

    NRSC | Senator Jerry Moran
    Friend, At midnight tonight, we will hit our most important fundraising deadline-to-date: the midyear reporting deadline. This is such an important milestone that Senator Rob Portman has agreed to triple-match every online donation made before midnight tonight. Thousands of you have already responded to Senator Portman’s generous offer, and we’re just one big, grassroots push away from meeting our goals. These goals are not arbitrary – they are the resources we need to retake the United States Senate; right now, we’re a little short and we need your help. I know you get a lot of e-mails, but we are...

    The 60 Plus Association today released TV and radio advertisements in seven states targeting Senate Banking Committee Members who are sponsoring recently introduced legislation that will allow the government to take over the mortgage industry in an action 'disturbingly similar' to Obamacare. 60 Plus targeted three Democrat and four Republican U.S. Senators supporting this government take-over, including Joe Manchin (D-WV), Mark Warner (D-VA), Kay Hagan (D-NC), Mike Crapo (R-ID), Dean Heller (R-NV), Mark Kirk (R-IL), and Jerry Moran (R-KS).

    WASHINGTON, March 24 -- FreedomWorks issued the following news release: Tonight, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) headquarters is hosting a fundraiser for North Carolina moderate and Senatorial candidate Thom Tillis. Headlining the fundraiser invite was a "who's who" of beltway establishmentarians, including Senator Mitch McConnell, Senator Lamar Alexander, and Senator Richard Burr. Attendees must pay a minimum of $1,000 per PAC or $500 per person to rub elbows with the D.C. elite. According to the Washington Post, (http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/post-politics/wp/2014/03/21/nrsc-chairman-obamacare-has-helped-dramatically-expand-senate-map/) NRSC Chairman Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) explained today that playing in races like this one are a priority because the "map and...
  • Obama's populist pitch fizzles - "2014 might not be the year for Democrats"

    The Hill ^ | March 26, 2014 | Bernie Becker
    President Obama’s populist economic pitch is fizzling. The White House hoped to hammer Republicans this year on an array of pocketbook issues centered on hiking the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour, an effort meant to appeal to independents and rally Democrats to the polls. Three months in, Obama’s approval ratings are flailing in the low 40s, and Senate Democrats haven’t even been able to unify their 55 members on a minimum wage bill. That’s made it tougher to contrast the positions of Democrats with Republicans in an election year that is shaping up to be about the healthcare law...

    Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), chairman of the Republican Senatorial Committee, is sure he has the best political strategy for winning the six seats the GOP needs to capture control of the Senate in November — attack Democrats for the Affordable Care Act. The Republican National Committee’s first major advertising buy of this midterm election season will come in the shape of attack ads in 12 states against incumbent Democrats who voted for ObamaCare. Conservative activists are following the same strategy. The New York Times reported last week that the billionaire Koch brothers have already helped to air $20 million in...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) refused say whether he thinks former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie (R) will be a good candidate for Virginia's Senate race, putting the National Republican Senatorial Committee vice chairman at odds with its chairman and many in his party.Cruz repeatedly refused to say what he thinks of Gillespie's background or chances as a candidate against Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.)."I like Ed Gillespie, he is a friend of mine, he's a good man. That's ultimately a decision for the voters of Virginia," Cruz told The Hill on Thursday evening, hours after Gillespie entered the race.He demurred...

    Nashville, TN – Today, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham introduced the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The legislation currently has 33 cosponsors – but Senator Alexander is not one of them. Conservative Senate candidate Joe Carr called on Senator Alexander to change his stance and add himself as a co-sponsor. “I’m strongly pro-life and believe it’s imperative the Senate pass this important piece of legislation. When Senator Graham announced his co-sponsors and Senator Alexander’s name was missing, I was disappointed. I am hoping Senator Alexander will change his stance and add himself as a co-sponsor. This legislation is too...
  • Senator Blunt Co-Sponsors Amendments To Delay Onerous ObamaCare Mandates

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – In light of the Obama Administration’s recent announcement that it will delay the ObamaCare employer mandate until 2015, U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) co-sponsored two amendments today that would delay the individual and employer mandates. The amendments were introduced by U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (Kan.) to the FY2014 Labor-HHS-Ed appropriations bill. “Picking and choosing which aspects of this flawed law to postpone is like riding a bike with one wheel – it simply does not work,” said Blunt. “I’ll continue to support efforts to repeal and defund ObamaCare so that we can prevent this deeply flawed law...

    Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul’s threat to filibuster any new gun restrictions is gathering steam, as a dozen of his Republican colleagues have now signed onto his plan. The Kentucky Republican and Sens. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Mike Lee (R-Utah) first wrote to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid late last month to warn him of their intention to try to tie up the Senate if, as planned, Reid moved forward with legislation that would expand background checks and attempt to crack down on interstate gun trafficking. Reid is expected to bring a gun-control bill to the floor as early as next...

    Daily Caller ^ | 4/26/12 | Paul Conner
    Under pressure from farming advocates in rural communities, and following a report by The Daily Caller, the Obama administration withdrew a proposed rule Thursday that would have applied child labor laws to family farms. Critics complained that the regulation would have drastically changed the extent to which children could work on farms owned by family members. The U.S. Department of Labor cited public outcry as the reason for withdrawing the rule. “The decision to withdraw this rule — including provisions to define the ‘parental exemption’ — was made in response to thousands of comments expressing concerns about the effect of...

    CNN ^ | 8/4/10 | Staff
    This time a Sarah Palin endorsement wasn't enough for victory. But score another win for Sen. Jim DeMint. Rep. Todd Tiahrt was edged out by Rep. Jerry Moran in a battle between two conservative congressmen for the Republican Senate nomination in Kansas. Moran is now considered the overwhelming favorite in November's general election to succeed GOP Sen. Sam Brownback, who is running for Kansas governor rather than for re-election to Congress. Tiahrt was endorsed by the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee in June. In a Facebook post, Palin said Tiahrt was "a protector of our Constitution,...

    Rep. Jerry Moran (R) joined MI venture capitalist Rick Snyder (R) as proof that the more moderate candidates can still get elected in GOP primaries as he defeated conservative stalwart Rep. Todd Tiahrt (R) in the KS-SEN GOP primary. The AP just called the race for Moran; he leads Tiahrt 49-45% with 87 percent of precincts reporting. If Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam (R) is successful in the 8/5 TN-GOV GOP primary by winning a decisive plurality against two more conservative challengers, that would make the third-straight major GOP win this week by a moderate candidate that led the primary in...

    Minuteman Project Founder and President Jim Gilchrist, the nation's leading grassroots activist on the issue of immigration reform and border security, announced today that he is endorsing Congressman Todd Tiahrt in his bid for Senator of Kansas. Gilchrist cited Tiahrt's strong record on securing our borders, denying illegals any form of amnesty, and cracking down on taxpayer funded benefits that attract illegals to the United States. Polls show that immigration reform and border security remains one of the top issues facing voters of the state of Kansas in the upcoming August 3 Republican Primary.

We are proud to boast that while serving in the Kansas State Senate you introduced the first concealed carry legislation and began a crusade that lasted fourteen years until your dream came to fruition as you inspired those who came after you to continue your legacy." Upon hearing of the KSRA endorsement, Todd Novascone, fourth campaign manager and chief...

    TOPEKA - U.S. Rep. Jerry Moran is aggressively attacking his main rival in the U.S. Senate race in Kansas, saying he previously supported amnesty for illegal immigrants, pointing to provisions in past bills designed to give immigrants help with college tuition. A spokeswoman for fellow Republican and U.S. Rep. Todd Tiahrt calls the attacks "ridiculous," and Tiahrt has declared publicly that he opposes amnesty, just as Moran has. Bills on college tuition in 2001 and 2003, co-sponsored by Tiahrt, included provisions granting legal residency to some immigrants under 21. Opinions differ on whether those measures constituted amnesty. Tiahrt has said...

    In case you'd been losing sleep wondering just who would get Sen. John McCain's support in the race for Sen. Sam Brownback's seat in Kansas when he steps down in 2010, the answer is in: U.S. Rep. Jerry Moran. He, of course, just nipped Rep. Todd Tiahrt to it, and just in time, too. In case you'd forgotten, the presidential election cycle ended a full, well, not quite full, 11 months ago. It's back to politics time, baby. Now, exactly why Sen. McCain, the GOP presidential candidate in 2008 (in case you'd forgotten, it was so long ago) would get...

    Kansas Congressman Jerry Moran wants his colleagues to recognize a bunch of bikers. Moran has introduced a bill to honor the Patriot Guard, a national network of motorcyclists who turn out at funerals for US soldiers killed in Iraq to counter a Topeka church's protests. The First-District Republican seeks to commend the group for shielding military families from funeral protests. The Westboro Baptist Church believes soldiers fighting in Iraq die because of God's anger at US tolerance of homosexuality. Last year a small group of motorcyclists revved their engines and waved US flags to serve as a barrier between a...

    According to sources close to Jerry Moran, the FDM team learned that Kansas’ 1st district congressman will run for governor in 2006. Moran will announce shortly after the legislature is completed in late May/early June. Moran shouldn't have any serious Republican challengers for the nomination. Liberal Governor Kathleen Sebelius should be a goner now. Also, our sources tell us that Olathe State Senator Kay O'Connor is considering running for Secretary of State against incumbent Ron Thornburgh. Evidently, O'Connor sent out “secret” letters to supporters about her S.O.S. desires. We're not exactly sure what Thornburgh has done to deserve a primary...
