The AD-70 Race’s Biggest Winner: Melissa Fox

While watching the returns for the Republican primary in the AD-70 race, it should be obvious that the biggest winner of the primary election for this seat last night was Melissa Fox. She came in with more than 10,600 votes surpassing even Republican primary winner Don Wagner by a few hundred votes. We’re hoping Wagner shows the willingness to debate Fox for this seat and often.

Carly wins the GOP Senate Nod

The Washington Post and NY Times report that Carly Fiorina has defeated Tom Campbell and Tea Bagger Chuck DeVore for the GOP Senate nomination. Sorry Megan Barth, but this is a huge setback for the Teag Bagger movement.

Reagan Would Have Been Thrown Under the Bus Today

In Facebook postings and email exchanges with conservatives friends leading up to tomorrow’s Primary Day elections, a persistent theme emerges: the desire by Republicans for another galvanizing Ronald Reagan figure.  In 30 years, the Republicans have gone from a positive message from a popular and likeable leader (“It’s Morning in America”) to a rudderless ship…

Don Henley Kicks Chuck DeVore’s Ass in Court

HT to our friends at the Huffington Post but State Rep. Chuck DeVore has already lost his first battle of the month and its not even primary day.

The darling of the Tea Partiers and son of failed presidential candidate Ron Paul, Rand Paul came across as someone who placed…

Why Doesn’t Steven Choi Tout His Military Experience?

We paid a visit to Choi’s website and did email the Councilman’s fundraiser asking about his service in the South Korean military. There’s no mention of Choi’s military background on his website. Frankly, I find it odd for a Republican not to mention any military service. Look at Chuck DeVore’s mulitple references to his own miliary experience. Dana Roharbacher evaded the draft but is as hawkish as can be. Vice President Cheney is famous for having other priorities during Vietnam.

Has Chuck DeVore Already Thrown in the Towel?

While the LA Times pondered the political future of US Senate candidate Chuck DeVore and why, in spite of the support of the Teabagger movement, he’s not raising more money or being more competitive.  You can read about it here, but my favorite part of the article is a confession of sorts from Chuck: “Ballot titles…
