2014 elections

Does Rove Want the GOP to Win the Senate or Help a Bush in '16?

Robert W. Patterson, Breitbart

Why isn’t Rove telling GOP Sen. candidates to stand tough for immigration control & border security? A big anti-amnesty-fueled victory coupled w/ a Tea Party surge would preclude Jeb Bush, another fan of open borders, from gaining the GOP nom. in '16.

Refocusing Our Values

David Bossie, Breitbart

RNC Chairman Priebus hit many of the right notes this week in refocusing the GOP. We all must be united so Obama cannot inflict more damage on our nation in his last 2 years in office. The time is now to come together and make sure we stop Obama in his tracks.

Petition Urging Ted Cruz to Lead Republicans to 2014 Election Victory

Senator Cruz, please save the day for Republicans!

To: Senator Ted Cruz

We agree with ConservativeHQ.com chairman Richard Viguerie: you can save the day for Republicans in the fast approaching midterm election.

Viguerie: Cruz Can Save the Day

Cruz has the respect, the admiration, and the trust of conservatives. His leadership is needed to nationalize the election on the themes of national security, border security and standing against the culture of lies, lawlessness and corruption with which Obama has infected our government. Only nationalizing the election will lead the GOP to victory in the midterm elections. SIGN OUR PETITION urging Cruz to lead Republicans to victory in the midterm elections.

Tony Lee, Breitbart

GOP estab. strategist and talking head Karl Rove conspicuously omitted illegal immigration in his advice to GOP Senate candidates on how to close the sale to voters in this year's midterm elections. 

McDaniel Has New Life to His Challenge of Cochran’s Tainted Win

Jennifer Burke, Tea Party News Network

McDaniel has been fighting the irregularities & corrupt tactics in the election ever since the loss and has refused to concede. Neither the state nor the national GOP would even consider its findings. Now his fight has been revived. A MS High Court has agreed to hear McDaniels' case.

Jerry Moran’s Morons

Erick Erickson, Red State

Moran at the NRSC claims they just saved Roberts' campaign. NRSC’s Comm. Dir. attacks conserv. orgs, their MS strategy painted the base as racist, & Moran thinks donors aren't giving because Mitt lost. Maybe donors just don't want to hitch their wagon to a clown car.

Are Big 3 Senate Races Slipping From Dems?

James Hohmann, Politico

A month out from the election, Republicans are seeing subtle but perceptible signs that contests in Alaska, Arkansas and Louisiana — all three pivotal in the battle for the Senate — are finally breaking their way.

Time for MS Conservs. to Teach GOPe a Lesson?

Gawken, Red State

If Cochran is reelected, then the GOPe wins big. They literally will get away with stealing an election. They’ll do anything to keep a real conservative from getting nominated in '16.

Jeff Bell vs. Cory Booker & The Fed

Josh Dawsey & Ben Leubsdorf, Wall Street Journal

GOP Senate hopeful Jeff Bell says easy-money policies have led to budget deficits. The main issue in his campaign isn't featured in the talking points of the GOP. "As long as there is a widespread belief that the Fed isn't the problem, we're in trouble."

The 'Do It For Bob Dole' Republicans

Jeffery Lord, American Spectator

Races that were supposed to be push-overs are suddenly nail-biters. How can this be? The Base. The very people who are needed to give money & votes to elect that GOP Senate are balking. Why? Nancy Kassebaum Baker illustrates the GOP's problem.

Priebus Speech Addresses Immigration

Matthew Boyle, Breitbart

RNC's Priebus addressed immigration saying that while “border security must come first,” Congress should “fix” our broken immigration system. “We need a system that secures our borders, upholds the law, and boosts our economy.”

How Far Will The GOP Wave Go?

Michael Barone, Washington Examiner

R's retain big leads to pick up 3 open seats in Romney-carried states: WV, Mont., SD. Repub. nominees moved ahead of 3 Dem. incumbents in Romney states (AK, AR, LA) & in 2 target states carried by Obama (CO, IA). Only in NC has the Repub. not yet overtaken the Dem.

Bright Future for Republican Senate Candidates?

With the national mood souring against the shady dealings of the Obama administration in Washington, Republican Senate candidates appear to be enjoying the benefits of voter antipathy.

Booker-Bell Really a 5-Point Race

William Kristol, Weekly Standard

Booker leads Bell, 51-40. 76% of Booker supporters & 84% of Bell supporters say their mind is made up. Do the math. Among those whose mind is made up, Booker leads Bell 39 to 34%. Booker's hard lead over Bell is a mere 5 points. Money can't always buy you votes. 

Viguerie: Priebus Speech A Victory For Conservatives

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

Republican Senate candidates who are lagging a month out from the election, such as Thom Tillis in North Carolina and Pat Roberts in Kansas, should take Chairman Priebus' speech as their cue to start campaigning as conservatives and then deliver on that campaign when they get to Washington.

GOP Tagline Through 2016: ‘We’re Not Them’

Tom T. Florida, Red State

Thirty-five days until the Nov. election and the GOP has long since gone to ground. If we didn’t know better, we’d swear Boehner, McConnell and Co. had members locked in a basement in the Capitol, the federal witness protection program has nothing on the GOP when it comes to the art of disappearing.

Republicans Need a Direction

Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal

They could win by default, but that's not good enough. Republicans have no message. Their weak 'do nothing' strategy won't work.

Another Purple State Looking Red

Karin McQuillan, American Thinker

Ben Sasse, who is drawing huge crowds with speeches on the Constitution, and has opened a 22 point lead, shows how the tea party has matured.
