Mitt Romney makes small meet and greets on caucus day, with his main goal to mingle with as many people as possible. Terry Branstead and local politicians are visiting local precincts on behalf of Romney...

The fact is, right now, a qualification for being President shouldn't be that your popular. It should be that you're ready to make tough decisions, even though it may hurt your popularity. Friends, I would rather lose an election than lose a war. I am committed to this country's national defense, and will make decisions based on what I think bests for America's future, not my personal popularity.

It'll be crazy if Ayotte loses. She's accepted by the establishment and the Tea Party - a perfect combination in this wild primary season.

I'm mentally preparing myself for endorsing another Democrat due to Republican stupidity.

Thanks for the suggestions. They'll help shape my next map.

OH-16, IN-08, and TX-17 should be rated tossup. NC-02 should be rated likely/solid Dem. NC-08 and SC-05 should be rated Lean Dem.
I think I know better than just about anyone on here what Indiana-08 should be rated. The only Democrats who have won in this district have been conservative ones, like Brad Ellsworth. The Democrats nominee this year is quite liberal and voted with his party almost all the time in the House. This race would be tight under normal years since Bucshon doesn't have a lot of charisma, but once you take into factor the nation's mood and Obama's unpopularity in the region, Buchson should win with around 55% of the vote. If anything, I'd move it to only slight Republican. But it's not a toss-up.

Mitt Romney holds a massive evening rally in Iowa City, Iowa...

This is it! Tomorrow, Iowans will head to the polls and help decide who the 2008 Republican Presidential nominee is! We have three qualified candidates in this race, and I wish both of my opponents the best of luck. Tomorrow's a big day, and I ask for all of your support. Together, we can bring America back to the days of Ronald Reagan!

Mitt Romney responds to Tancredo's attack at a rally in Burlington, Iowa...

Right now, America needs honesty more than ever, and Tom Tancredo's low blow my campaign clearly shows he does not have America's best interests at heart. I stand by my criticism of him because it is correct. Tom Tancredo lied to the people of Colorado when he promised to serve only three terms then went on to serve more than that. And the reason he's not running again this election is probably so that he could run for President.

Now, more than ever, America needs a true leader who will stand up for our values. As President, I will fight liberals head on so that this nation can get back to where it needs to be, both economically and socially. Right now, more than ever, this nation needs honesty, integrity, and leadership. I believe I possess all three, which is why I'm asking for your vote tomorrow.

Mitt Romney slams Tom Tancredo in Ceder Rapids, Iowa on term limits and integrity...

Before he remade himself as the "Scourge of Immigration," Tom Tancredo had a successful and lucrative career as a "Champion of Term Limits." In fact, his support of term limits was key to his getting elected in the first place. "I made a pledge, I took the pledge, I will live up to the pledge," said Tancredo in 2001 to the Rocky Mountain News, promising to serve only three terms in the House of Representatives. But then the chickens came home to roost and - guess what? Mr. Tancredo has now utterly broken his solemn vows, and is still in, despite it being more than three terms. Even worse, he has gutlessly tried to conceal his fraud from his constituents.

Right now, Americans need a leader who will act on their promises, not ignore them once elected. That's what I'll do as your President, as your leader. I am asking for your vote tomorrow, so that the America of tomorrow can be better than the America of today.

Republican, of course. And I choose...Marsha Blackburn. Just to give myself a bit of a challenge. Smiley

Adam Johnson appears alongside Republican Mike Fisher at a rally in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania...

Now, more than ever, our Senate needs true Republicans. It is an honor to be a Republican, and we should elect honorable people who represent our values, not people who support the murder of innocent fetuses. That's why I'm endorsing Mike Fisher for the US Senate here, and I encourage all conservatives to follow suit.

Romney makes a quick stop in Wyoming, where he hopes to maintain his lead. He is accompanied by former President George HW Bush. Afterwards, Romney flies quickly to Iowa, where he starts a tour of the eastern part of the state, namely Des Moine.

Governor Update 22
A reminder:
The Mideast Gubernatorial and Assembly elections will begin on Thursday. The last possible time to declare candidacy is 11:59 P.M. on Monday, September 13th.

Current Candidates are as follows...




I'd like to encourage any Mideasterners with nothing to do to consider running for the Assembly if you think you could positively contribute to it. Smiley Currently, we have only 5 candidates, and if no one else declares, those 5 will likely become our Assembly.

At a D.C. press conference, Senator Joseph Lieberman makes a stunning announcement...
The fact is, I'm sick of the partisan politics being played in Washington. That's why I'm proud to be an Independent - someone who will vote for whichever party has the best ideas. I think we need a President who shares the same values which I why I announce my support for Mitt Romney. This evening, I will be driving to New Hampshire, where I am excited to begin my first campaigning of 2008, campaigning for "My Man Mitt".

Also that day, Arkansas Congressman John Boozman endorsed Romney...
I know many expect me to endorse Huckabee simply because we're from the state. But I cannot do that, simply because I have a problem voting for someone for our nominee who raised my taxes as a citizen of Arkansas. I have more faith in Mitt than I do Mike, which is why I'm endorsing him.

Romney places a call to his top political strategist...
Adviser: Hello, Governor Romney. What can I do for you?
Romney: You can advice me. How do things look?
Adviser: Well, Iowa is looking good for us, but we have to keep the momentum on our side, and not Huckabee's. We're looking great in New Hampshire, Wyoming, and Nevada, and I really don't think we need to spend much more time there besides a stop on election day. From then on, we've fallen behind in Michigan, but I think we'll gain that back, and South Carolina and Florida go either way. If we can win at least three of Iowa, Michigan, South Carolina, and Florida, I think we'll be great going into election day.
Romney: Thanks. We have some free time between Iowa and Michigan. In between, let's solidify Michigan and start peeling away some Southern states, such as Missouri, Tennessee, and Georgia. All are winnable for our campaign. I'm actually surprised we're up in Oklahoma, but we'll take that.
Adviser: Let's focus on a win tomorrow in Iowa. I think we have it, but we need to keep campaigning to make sure.
Romney: Great. Thank you, and God Bless

Romney spends the afternoon touring the Northern half of Iowa, and even attended a Methodist church, saying he was extremely accepting and tolerant of all Christian religions, but recognizes there is a separation of church and state and won't use the Presidency as a pulpit.

Bush/Cheney--503 EV's, 60% of PV
Kerry/Edwards--35 EV's 40% of PV
I fail to see your reasoning on Deleware, considering Bush only lost it by 8 points. He lost Rhode Island by 21 points, yet you have him winning that first.

Bush had approvals in the 90's after the election, and it would probably be high 70's  on election day.

I'm extremely impressed by Whitman's campaign, and I'm becoming more confident every day that she'll win.

This is good, but I can't see King being competitive against Bush. Bush would crush him for lack of experience.

Statement from Governor Johnson's office...
Senator Jefferson Dent is truely one of the most disgusting and despicable people to ever walk the fact of the Earth. Not only is he supporting the murder of a teenage girl, but he's pushing the date up. Alabama, and America, deserves much better than this vile creature.

Statement from Senator Kassebaum's office...
I am extremely saddened and disappointed by Governor Dent's decision. It's very obvious that this man has absolutely no compassion.

Statement from Pete Wislon...
I mean, I know her fashion was hideous, and I know she messed up, but I'm not sure if what she did deserves the death penalty. Dent is not only an ugly man, but a cruel one.

Statement from Judd Gregg...

Despite Daniels vows to make redistricting fair to both sides, I think Republicans are going to benefit heavily from it.
The district on the left is the current and on the right is the proposed.

This, in my opinion, is as fair as it's going to get. If Baron Hill survives in 2010, he'll have an even tough time in 2012. Same with Joe Donnelly. The new map favors 7 Republicans and only 2 Democrats. Parts of current heavy-Republican districts are being moved to the battlegrounds, which in the end will make no district 100% safe like some currently are, but will give 7 districts a Republican edge.

Governor Adam Johnson, Senator Nancy Kassebaum, and Governor Pete Wilson all appear at a rally in Mobile, Alabama with the family of Sue Bell Cooter...

This is one of the few times in my life where I'll be able to stand on the same stage with a queer and not puke in my mouth. I would like to quickly apologize to Mrs. Kassebaum on circulating lesbian rumors about her...Jefferson Dent told me too. Pete Wilson also supported it because then he wouldn't be the only gay in the race.

On to the issue at hand, we all stand here today as leaders of the GOP, asking Jefferson Dent to pardon this poor, teenage girl. She made a mistake, and she knows it. Why must we kill her? She'll have it even worse in jail? As Mr. Dent seems to like to torture people, as it seems several people have seen him naked, it would be in his best interests to keep her locked in jail.

- Adam Johnson
