Current State of Congressional Campaigns

Below is from the Republican National Committee. For the record, Cowboys-and-Tea-Parties does not give blanket support all Republicans. We are highly pissed that some high level Republicans trashed the Tea Party and some Tea Party candidates (such as Sharron Angle and Christine O'Donnell) and either have not gotten behind Tea Party candidates or got behind them at very late stages of their campaign putting their election at risk.

First, we are confident that every Republican incumbent running for re-election will win.

Additionally, we also strongly expect to hold every Republican open seat. The national Democrats have ceded New Hampshire, Kansas, Utah and Ohio – and they are spending no money in these races.

In Alaska, Joe Miller (R) appears to be holding a significant lead over both his opponents.

In Florida, Marco Rubio (R) has opened a commanding lead over both Charlie Crist (I) and liberal Kendrick Meek (D).

In Missouri, despite the national Democrats spending over $3 million to smear Roy Blunt (R) with baseless attacks, Blunt continues to lead Robin Carnahan (D).

And in Kentucky, Dr. Rand Paul (R) holds consistent lead over Louisville liberal trial lawyer Jack Conway (D).

As for the Democrat held seats, we are going to win a lot of races.

John Hoeven (R) is going to win North Dakota.

In Indiana, Hoosiers know Brad Ellsworth (D) as Nancy Pelosi's loyal deputy who supported ObamaCare and the failed stimulus, and the polls reflect that Dan Coats (R) will win.

In Arkansas, Senator Blanche Lincoln (D) is trailing by nearly 25 points to John Boozman (R).

In Illinois, we expect this race to be competitive to the end, but are confident Mark Kirk (R) will defeat failed mob banker Alexi Giannoulias (D).

In Pennsylvania, the Democrats have spent over $3 million accusing attacking Pat Toomey (R) and he is in better shape today than he was a month ago.

In Wisconsin, President Obama's approval rating have plummeted and voters have began to scrutinize 18-year incumbent Russ Feingold's (D) record, while businessman Ron Johnson's (R) strong campaign has consistently picked up steam. We will provide Johnson with whatever help he needs to maintain his lead over Feingold and win on November 2nd.

In Colorado, despite being outspent by Governor Ritter's appointed Senator Michael Bennet (D), Ken Buck (R) is poised to win, and the NRSC will invest whatever means necessary to help him do so.

And that's not all.

In West Virginia, despite Democrats expecting liberal Governor Joe Manchin (D) to waltz to victory, businessman John Raese (R) continues to surge, and has provided us a strong opportunity to win.

In Nevada, Sharron Angle (R) continues to run neck-and-neck with embattled Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D).

In Connecticut, Linda McMahon (R) has taken perpetual liar Dick Blumenthal's (D) lead from 41 points this January, to a mere 4 points today.

In California, Carly Fiorina (R) has withstood the initial attacks by Senator Boxer (D) and is still within striking distance. The NRSC just provided Carly's campaign with $2 million in coordinated funding and we hope to do more as this campaign enters the home stretch.

In Washington state, we have only begun to prosecute our case against 18-year incumbent Patty Murray (D), and the NRSC is prepared to invest millions in this race to help elect Dino Rossi (R).

And, even in Delaware, a tough blue state for Republicans, polls show unease with the Democrats' reckless spending and health care spending bill. Christine O'Donnell (R) raised more money in one week than Chris Coons (D) did in over six months. We expect her to be on the air soon and her war chest has already forced the DSCC to spend their scarce cash in Coons' defense.

  1. I'm starting to get a smile on my face; however, I won't break into a grin until after the election when the Republicans and others get behind the Tea Party and actually get some work done. The Republicans need to realize that the writing is on the wall for them also. Let's get our nation back to some moral standards and let freedom ring!
