KANSAS SENATE ELECTION 2014: Incumbent Pat Roberts (R) – Greg Orman (I) … (Race Called for Roberts, Electorate Figured Out Orman was a Dem)
WITH THIS GOP VICTORY, THERE IS NO WAY DEMOCRATS CAN RETAIN THE SENATE, THEY HAD TO WIN WHAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THIS VULNERABLE SEAT.
CBS calls the Kansas senate election for the incumbent GOP Senator Pat Roberts over the so-called independent candidate, Greg Orman. This is a huge save for Republicans as many pundits thought that this was the most vulnerable GOP Senate seat.
Just how much did VP Biden’s comments on radio that Orman was in the bag and was going to caucus with Democrats if he won cost Orman?
VP Joe Biden With Big Gaffe … Blows So-Called Independent Greg Orman’s Cover in Kansas Senate Race …”He ‘Will Be With Us”
Did VP Joe Biden just make the gaffe or all gaffes that could cost so-called Independent Greg Orman the Kansas Senate election?
During an interview today with Connecticut radio station WPLR, Joe Biden made a remark that many “Jay Hawk” voters better take notice of before they cast their vote today. Biden was asked whether he thought the Democrats would retain control of the US Senate and what key battleground states are important to Democrats.Biden said, “We have a chance of picking up an independent who will be with us in the state of Kansas.” REALLY? Hey Kansas voters, Biden is referring to the so-called Independent Greg Orman. Hmm … Biden already knows that Orman is going to caucus with them … THAT HARDLY SEEMS INDEPENDENT NOW, DOES IT!
WAKE UP KANSAS AND VOTE FOR PAT ROBERTS!!!
Vice President Joe Biden blew Kansas independent Greg Orman’s cover in a radio interview today. Orman hasn’t stated which party he’ll caucus with in the Senate–actively avoiding announcing whether he’ll be with Republicans or Democrats–but Biden stated definitively that Orman “will be with us” if he’s elected.
“We have a chance of picking up an independent who will be with us in the state of Kansas,” said Biden, as he predicted the outcomes of various Senate races around the country.
Orman has stated that he’ll caucus with whichever party holds the balance of power in Kansas, but Republicans have long suspected he’s likely to join the Democrats’ side. Biden seemed to confirm that belief in this interview.
More from HOT AIR:
Given the lengths to which Democratic groups have gone to stealthily support Orman’s candidacy, Republicans who turn out to vote Orman are likely doing so at this point out of an all-consuming hatred for the unpopular incumbent, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS). That’s forgivable, but it is not particularly rational – particularly if those Republican voters also hope to relegate Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) to the minority in the 115th Congress.
