And so it begins … The Republicans are starting their pursuit on gaining the US Senate.
Republican candidate Rand Paul will win the Kentucky Senate race to score the first major victory of the night for the Tea Party movement, according to ABC News exit-poll projections.
Paul beat Democrat Jack Conway after a bitter personal campaign that became one of the nastiest in the country.
But former Sen. Dan Coats in Indiana scored the first GOP Senate pick-up of the night, beating Democratic Rep. Brad Ellsworth for the seat left by retiring Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh.
Rob Portman Declared winner in Ohio over Democrat Lee Fisher.
Conservative Republican JimDeMint declared winner in South Carolina over Democrat Alvin Greene. Was there ever a doubt. This one was called the second the polls closed.
CNN & Fox News call Marco Rubio the winner in the 3 way race between Crist and Meek.
Missouri has been called for Republican Roy Blunt over Robin Carnahan (D).
Kelly Ayotte (R) wins New Hampshire.
2010 Florida US Senate Race: Charlie Crist … Once Republican, Turned Independent will Caucus with the Democrats
Shocker … Charlie Crist will caucus with the Democrats if he wins the Florida US Senate election, REALLY?
Surprise, surprise, surprise …so-called Independent, the Democrat in Independents clothing, Charlie Crist will caucus with the Democrat party if he wins the 2010 midterm election for the Florida US Senate seat. Talk about you “no dah” moment of politics. Did any one really think that Crist would caucus with Republicans after he lied to the GOP and the people of Florida when he said he would only run as a Republicans? Was there ever any doubt?
Was there really any doubt who Charlie Crist would be caucusing with?
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist would caucus with Senate Democrats if he wins Florida’s three-way U.S. Senate contest on Tuesday, a close advisor told Washington Wire Friday.
Crist an Independent … Hardly …Bill Clinton Asked Democrat Meek to Quit Senate Run in Florida? Meek’s Says No
Democrat Primary elected candidates, back room Democrat deals and so-called Charlie Crist, OH MY!!!
If you ever wanted to know why Americans are disgusted with politics and politicians … you need to look no further than the shenanigans and corrupt back room conversations and deals going on in the Florida US Senate race between Democrats and the Crist campaign. If Democrats get their way, they will have an individual in Charlie Crist become US Senator of Florida having never won a Republican or Democrat primary. With the Democrats actions, who really thinks Crist is independent? Come on Florida … Crist is beholden to the Democrat party … WAKE UP!!!
Did former Democrat President try and interfere in the US Senate race in Florida and ask Democrat Kendrick Meek to withdraw from the race to provide an advantage to so-called independent Charlie Crist? According to the Politico, Clinton did. At all costs the Democrats are looking to winthe Florida US Senate seat, even if it means throwing a fellow Democrat under the bus. Democrats will do anything to maintain power … that is what this about America … not WE THE PEOPLE, not your votes, but what back room deals they can do, usurp the process and maintain power.
Bill Clinton sought to persuade Rep. Kendrick Meek to drop out of the race for Senate during a trip to Florida last week — and nearly succeeded.
Independent US Senate Candidate Charlie Crist … OMG He Throws Like an Obama … No Wonder Republican Marco Rubio is Cleaning his Clock in Polls by Double Digits
ARE YOU SERIOUS … YOU THROW LIKE AN OBAMA.
What a desperate, pandering attempt on Charlie Crist’s part to the FLA voters to throw the ball so far inside to show that he was way right as a candidate, wink, wink. I hope this was not Crist’s attempt as a last ditch effort to impress the Florida voters.
Charlie Crist’s attempt at throwing out the first pitch an the Ray’s game might have finally sealed his fate in the Florida US Senate race. It might have been the worst and most embarrassing first pitch ever in a game. He even topped his pal Barack Obama. No wonder the Rays lost to the Rangers in game two of the ALDS. What is more embarrassing, Crist’s pitch or his polling numbers?
Is it any wonder after watching that pitch why Republican Marco Rubeo is destroying both Crist (I) and Meek (D) in the polls. In teh most recent Rasmussen poll, Rubio is now far out ahead of his two rivals as he has hit the 50% mark … RUBIO (R) 50%, CRIST (I) 25% and MEEK (D) 19%.
Coming off a contentious televised debate, Republican Marco Rubio has now jumped to a two-to-one lead over Independent candidate Charlie Crist in Florida’s U.S. Senate race. Democratic Congressman Kendrick Meek still runs third.
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in Florida shows Rubio with 50% of the vote, up nine points from just over a week ago and his best showing in the race to date. Support for Crist, the state’s current GOP governor, has fallen to a new low of 25%, while Meek captures 19%. Three percent (3%) like another candidate in the race, and three percent (3%) more are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
You know what they say about birds of a feather and water seeking its own levelRemeber how patheticallty bad Barack Obama’s attempt was as well at trying the first pitch? How ironic Obama’s was inside and extremely LEFT. However, just like Obama’s job approval numbers, Crist is finished in the US Florida Senate race.
UPDATE I:Is Crist and Democrats looking to play dirty politics in order to get anyone but Rubio elected? Will Meek drop out to help pave the way for Crist? How pathetic is Crist? He drops out of the Republican primary because he was losing by double digits to Rubio, after he had stated he was going to only run as a Republican. Now as an Independent his campaign is going no where so he needs the Democrat to drop out to have a chance. UNREAL! To the Independents and Republicans in Florida that actually might vote for this politically hack, can you see now that he is nothing more than a Democrat?
Meanwhile, Mr. Crist is striving to assemble a center-left coalition by winning over Democratic voters. His latest mailing throughout the state was titled “Ten Reasons Democrats Should Vote for Charlie Crist.” On issues from health care to taxes, Mr. Crist has moved dramatically to the left.
Mr. Crist has also refused to say which party he would caucus with if he wins. His latest nonanswer: “I will caucus with the people.” But Mr. Crist has met privately with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, adding to GOP paranoia that Democrats may be getting ready to throw the sure loser Mr. Meek over the side. One Republican Party leader tells me he wouldn’t be surprised to hear suddenly that “Meek was offered an ambassadorship from Barack Obama.”
Didn’t the Democrats learn their lesson with lame duck US Senator Arlen Specter? However, according to the Weekly Standard, Meek denies the rumors. If Democrats pull such a stunt as to have Meek step down, I find it hard to believe that the Florida voters would take to kindly to this type of sleazy political games. As states at Hot Air, it is too late to take Meek’s name off the ballot. In an environment where political game playing is not looked upon kindly by the voters, such a Democrat stunt will merely prove correct what Rubio has been saying all along, he is the only candidate who is running as a Republican and against Obama’s policies and agenda.
But there is no media bias …
It is the story that you will never see, hear or read about in the MSM; however, Real Clear Politics has the story … The Rise of the Black Republicans. One would think that with the election of Barack Obama as the first black President in the United States, our apologies to Bill Clinton, that the media would begin to cover stories of the advent of black candidates running for office. But how could the MSM cover such stories and continue to carry the water of the Democrat party and promote the GOP as racist?
I bet you haven’t heard of Tim Scott, Allen West or Ryan Frazier. If they were Democrats, I might lose that bet.
But they’re not. Mr. Scott, Mr. West and Mr. Frazier are three of the 14 black candidates running for Congress as Republicans this November. Thirty-two black Republicans ran in the primaries.
Most of the 14 are running all-but-hopeless races against black Democratic incumbents in black majority districts. But Mr. Scott, running in South Carolina, is a virtual cinch to win. Mr. West (Florida) and Mr. Frazier (Colorado) are in races that are judged tossups.
If all three win, that would be a post-Reconstruction record. The largest number of black Republicans to serve together in the House in the last century is two, J.C. Watts (Oklahoma) and Gary Franks (Connecticut) between 1995 and 1997. There haven’t been any since Mr. Watts retired in 2003.
The main stream media has also failed to mention that the republicans have several Hispanic candidates running in 2010 as well. How can that be America, we have been told by the Democrat state run media that Republicans are anti-immigrant and especially anti-Hispanic. Oh, that is right, a majority of Americans are anti-illegal immigration. Didn’t Democrat US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid say he didn’t know how any Hispanic would be a Republicans? Of course that would mean Harry Reid is confused by Republican US Senate candidate Marco Rubio in Florida and Brian Sandoval in Nevada who is of all things ahead of Reid’s son Rory for the Governor of Nevada.
Many liberals also say Republicans are anti-immigrant, even though Hispanic Republicans are poised to win a Senate seat in Florida (Marco Rubio) and gubernatorial races in New Mexico (Susana Martinez) and Nevada (Brian Sandoval).
