Who Will Win the Senate in November? A Glance at Each Battleground Race

With just over 100 days to go before election day, what’s the state of the battleground Senate races? The party which controls the White House usually loses seats in Congress in the first midterm after the presidential election. This year is unique in that Republicans could be poised to lose seats in the House while gaining seats in the Senate due to a highly favorable electoral map. There are 10 Senate Democrats up for re-election in states President Trump carried in 2016. Republicans are hoping to hold all their seats in the Senate and pick off a few Democrats for

Who Is Corey Stewart? GOP Firebrand Complicates Senate Race in Virginia

Last week, Virginia Republicans nominated Corey Stewart for U.S. Senate to take on incumbent Democrat Tim Kaine in the fall. Stewart narrowly edged out state Delegate Nick Freitas, an Army veteran, with 45 percent to Freitas’ 43 percent — a margin of 5,000 votes. Bishop E.W. Jackson, the 2013 Republican nominee for lieutenant governor, placed third with 12 percent. Stewart, the Chairman of the Prince William County Board of Supervisors in the outer suburbs of Washington, D.C., has been running for statewide office virtually nonstop since 2013. He finished third of seven candidates at a convention in 2013, and lost

Obnoxious Democrats Are Squandering Their Midterm Advantage

Is this year going to look like 2010 or 1998? It’s the end of May, and this week came with the stunning news that the generic ballot gap has narrowed to almost zero. The “generic ballot” is a type of poll which asks voters if they would be more likely to vote for the Republican candidate or Democrat candidate in their district. It generally does not name candidates specifically, but is a good measure of the mood of voters and how they feel about the parties generally. As soon as President Trump took office, Democrats opened a huge lead in

Is a “Blue Wave” Coming in 2018? Not According to These Numbers…

This article was originally posted at The Hill. Over the past several months, political pundits and media elites alike have decided we are headed toward a “blue wave” in this year’s midterm elections. This narrative is spoken as if it is an absolute certainty, reminiscent of the “Hillary Clinton is unbeatable” conventional wisdom in 2016 — and we all know how that turned out. The reality on the ground is that the fundamentals are not nearly as good for the Democrats as many in the media would have you believe. President Trump’s favorability numbers are higher than they were at any point during the

New Poll Shows Ted Cruz in Danger of Defeat — But Should Republicans Panic?

A poll was released earlier this week that provided a little bit of a shock for Republicans: according to Quinnipiac, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) holds only a 3-point lead over Democrat challenger Beto O’Rourke. The release of the poll immediately caused some panic on the Right as well as some frothing at the mouth on the Left (and among liberal Republicans who loathe Cruz for actually trying to hold them to conservative principles). O’Rourke is a darling of progressives as a young-ish, far-left, attractive face who can raise millions of dollars. They’re hoping that toppling a stalwart like Cruz will finally make

Will Democrats’ Abortion Extremism Undermine Their 2018 Chances?

This article was originally posted at The Stream. Dems are chortling with glee about the election on Tuesday night: They snatched another victory in deep red territory. Trump won Pennsylvania 18th congressional district by 20 points. On Tuesday, the Democrat Conor Lamb eked out a win over GOP’s Rick Saccone. Dems are smacking their lips: They see a Democratic wave in November, and they may be right. But Democrats beware: your short-term special election victories are leading you into a huge political trap. Abortion Extremism This week’s win follows the surprise victory of Democrat Doug Jones over Judge Roy Moore in

Bill Ending Late-Term Abortions Fails after 46 Senators Vote ‘No’

Yesterday, 44 Democrats and 2 Republicans voted to continue allowing the barbaric practice of legalized abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy, when the baby is capable of feeling excruciating pain and, as science advances, capable of surviving outside the womb. The bill, called the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, was not expected to pass because the Democratic Party is in complete lockstep with the radical pro-abortion lobby. But that doesn’t make it any less shocking that there are still dozens of United States senators in 2018 who are still willing to allow late-term abortions. While these senators cower to the abortion

WATCH: Planned Parenthood Takes Shot at GOP Senator in New Ad

Yesterday, Planned Parenthood Action Fund announced the release of their latest ad, this one attacking Senator Dean Heller (R-Nev.) for voting in favor of the Senate’s failed attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act and defund Planned Parenthood. You can watch the full video below: Planned Parenthood is displeased with Sen. Heller for voting in favor of the repeal bill after having stated he would “defend Planned Parenthood” this past April. The ad also takes Heller to task for his reasoning behind wanting to defund the abortion giant. Heller argues his objection to Planned Parenthood is due to their using
