    Former New Hampshire Republican senator Bob Smith said he has changed his mind and will try to defeat Democratic incumbent Jeanne Shaheen for his old seat next year. Smith told WMUR Political Scoop on Sunday that he had made a decision not to run largely to get out of the way for other candidates, but as weeks came and went no major candidates got into the race, and he kept getting encouragement to run. "I have a decision to run again for the Senate," said Smith. "This is nothing personally against Jeanne Shaheen, who I like as a person, but...
  • Elites’ deplorable double-standard on corruption

    Today’s U.S. Senate primary in New Jersey is – like so many elections these days – a representation of many of the most destructive trends that define modern politics. It is, for instance, a case of politics as a celebrity-driven coronation – one where one candidate’s media- and Twitter-driven celebrity (Cory Booker) is depicted as more important than other candidates’ far more impressive public policy experience. It is also a commentary on how such a celebrified politics tends to intensify when voters are paying the least attention. As the Progressive Change Campaign Committee’s Adam Green notes, this most certainly is...

    TRENTON — New Jersey's special U.S. Senate election is a little more than a month away, but for whom would you vote if the polls opened today: Cory Booker or Steve Lonegan? A Rutgers-Eagleton poll released today shows Booker, the Democratic mayor of Newark, leading Lonegan, the Republican candidate and a former Bogota mayor, by 35 points — 64 percent to 29 percent — heading into the Oct. 16 election. The two are running to fill the final 14 months of the term left vacant by the death of U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg.

    My Conservative Campaign Committee is in Boston filming ads in support of Michael Sullivan for U.S. Senate. I consistently heard the same glowing reviews of Mike's service from voters – a strong trustworthy man of character and principles. In the words of one voter, “Mike has a knack for showing up and setting things right”. It is also clear that Sullivan has been doing the right things over a long period of time as “proven” and “tested” kept coming up in conversations about Mike. Another voter shared that he has followed Mike Sullivan's career over the years and has been...
  • GOP: Audit links Charlie Crist to state party's financial scandal

    State Republicans moved the three-way U.S. Senate race to a new level Saturday, with party leaders pointing to an audit of their books they say implies Gov. Charlie Crist — now an independent candidate for U.S. Senate — ran up potentially "hundreds of thousands" of dollars in inappropriate charges. Party Chairman and state Sen. John Thrasher said the expenses came to light during the just-completed forensic audit by Alston & Bird LLP — which was the examiner in energy giant Enron's 2002 bankruptcy. He said the party may sue their former standard bearer to get the money back. The announcement...

    DISASTER!! ~SNIP~ Sean Cairncross, the general counsel of the National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee, is headed to Alaska at the request of Sen. Lisa Murkowski to help provide guidance to the GOP incumbent finds herself trailing attorney Joe Miller by roughly 1,600 votes… Committee sources insisted that too much should not be read into Cairncross’ presence in Alaska — only that the NRSC is an incumbent-retention committee and, as such, provides assistance when Senators ask for it. Let me get this straight. After taking loads of abuse from the grassroots for endorsing Charlie Crist before Rubio’s campaign got off the...

    I originally posted the following essay one month ago. Much has changed since then. Given recent developments, I feel this post may be worth discussing again. I know this type of re-post is unusual, but this particular election, and this time in history are also unusual: The American Revolutionary War began in Massachusetts with the Battles of Lexington and Concord, on April 19th, 1775. Following what Emerson referred to as the “Shot heard ‘round the world”, a small fledgling colony stood up against the tyranny of the greatest military force on earth… And won. Great men and women stood up...

    Riding a wave of opposition to Democratic health-care reform, GOP upstart Scott Brown is leading in the U.S. Senate race, raising the odds of a historic upset that would reverberate all the way to the White House, a new poll shows. Although Brown’s 4-point lead over Democrat Martha Coakley is within the Suffolk University/7News survey’s margin of error, the underdog’s position at the top of the results stunned even pollster David Paleologos. “It’s a Brown-out,” said Paleologos, director of Suffolk’s Political Research Center. “It’s a massive change in the political landscape.” The poll shows Brown, a state senator from Wrentham,...

    SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle says it is unlikely he will ever run for president and has no regrets about seeking re-election to the Senate this year rather than joining the fray for the Democratic presidential nomination. Asked whether he might seek the presidency in the future, Daschle told The Associated Press this week: "I guess you never say never, but my current and only focus is my re-election, and we'll worry about other questions like that down the road. But I would say unlikely, but I suppose only time will tell." Daschle said campaigning for...

    Turning the tables on the nation's leading civil rights organization, three Republican Senate hopefuls accused the NAACP Thursday of unfairly excluding from a scheduled debate the only two GOP minority candidates in the race. "What the NAACP was based upon is giving equal opportunity to African Americans to strive and reach their potential," said Dr. Chirinjeev Kathuria, who was born in India. "So for me, it's ironic that we're not being allowed to participate." Kathuria, 38, and Antonio Davis-Fairman, the only black Republican vying to succeed Sen. Peter Fitzgerald (R-Ill.), were nixed from the lineup of this Saturday's debate. That's...

Byron Dorgan (D-N.D.) in two years.Dueker said she will defer to former Gov. Ed Schafer (R) if he decides to run for the Senate, but she will not let Dorgan get a free ride if Schafer bows out. "If no one will run, I will be running," she vowed....

Rosenberg With a war against Iraq looming, Mr. Forrester's apparent new oppontent may be vulnerable to the charge that he's weak on national security. In 1991, then-Sen. Lautenberg voted against authorizing military force aainst Saddam Hussein during the Gulf War. He predicted "tens of thousands of American casulties" and a new U.S. draft, and he warned the U.S. could end up destroying Kuwait in the process of trying to liberate it. That same year, he backed an amendment that would have cut defense spending by $80 billion. Mr. Lautenberg's record...
