At this point, I don't think it matters a whole lot if Republicans have 48 seats or 50. They're still going to be able to block any liberal legislation Obama-Reid/Schumer tries to push through. And anyways, there's a good chance Republicans will comfortably take back the Senate in 2012 anyways.

I wish Credico had more of a chance than he does. :/ Then again...

The Marsha Blackburn releases a schedule for the next week. They will be making several specific stops for endorsements...

Monday: Springfield, Illinois; Mattoon, Illinois; Terre Haute, Indiana
Tuesday: Fort Wayne, Indiana (Marlin Stutzman endorsement); Cincinnati, Ohio (Tea Party Rally)
Wednesday (Accompanied by Bob McDonnell): Roanoke, Virginia; Richmond, Virginia; Petersburg, Virginia
Thursday: Spending day at Virginia Beech with family (No campaign events)
Friday: Winston-Salem, North Carolina; Charlotte, North Carolina; Hickory, North Carolina
Saturday: Maryville, Tennessee; Cookeville, Tennessee; Nashville, Tennessee; Memphis, Tennesee
Sunday: Attends home church (No campaign events)



I'm excited and happy that we have a great, conservative female running for the Republican nomination. Marsha Blackburn. I've spoken with her several times, and I know she'd make a strong and successful President. I'm happy to endorse her, and I encourage all California Republicans, Independents, and even Democrats to support her too!

I welcome Governor Haley Barbour into the race. It's great to have another Southernor in the race for the Republican nomination. I know this will be a close election. While we may be low in the polls now, my friends, we are not in this race for a respectable showing. I...am not in this race to prove that a woman can run a strong campaign for the Republican nomination. Friends, I, we, are in this race to win it! We'll begin our journey with a strong win here in Illinois and January, and we'll end it with Inauguration day in January, 2013! Thank you, and God Bless you all!

I would take this with a grain of salt. Critical Insights also has Corbett only up by 1 in Pennsylvania.

Is it possible to only endorse in some races, or otherwise to differentiate between "strong" and "weak" endorsements?

Looking at old endorsement maps, there is a "no endorsement" option.

I like the idea of strong and weak endorsements.
I'd also like to request the inclusion of third party candidates, specifically in Indiana (Rebecca Sink-Burris, the Libertarian nominee)

They're always included.
Will an exception also be made for Lisa Murkowski in Alaska, despite the fact she's a write-in and not with a party? I'm sure I'm not the only person on here who'd like to see her win...

Mitt Romney campaigns with Charlie Crist in Jacksonville...

In my administration, we're going to give the people the details. There aren't going to be secrets and lies won't be spread to the American people. We want an honest administration, and that's what you'll get with Romney. As President, I will fight earmarks, and the budget that I will sign will have to have little to no earmarks in it. It will also have to protect social security and give more relief to our veterans.

At a Tennessee Republicans dinner, Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn receives the endorsement of the entire Tennessee Republican Congressional delegation.

It'd be great for someone as strong and faithful as Marsha Blackburn to be our party's nominee, and I am going to do everything I can to help Ms. Blackburn win the nomination!

Florida is strong Marco Rubio now, and Alaska tilts Independent and Illinois is tossup.
Murkowski is running a write-in campaign. While she won't do terrible, and may even beat McAdams, she won't win this.

Not too bad, though I feel he wouldn't "moderate" a lot and let everyone run wild.

Cuomo and Hickenlooper are the only two who I think have a serious chance at the nomination in 2016. Personally, I'd like Hickenlooper and would probably vote for him if the Republican president or Republican candidate isn't very good.

Mitt Romney gives a speech in Tampa, Florida, focusing on social security...

Social security is in dire need of reform right now. The only way we will be able to achieve this reform is for both parties to work together and not let things get out of control. I love senior citizens, heck, I'm one myself! Protecting your rights will be one of my top goals if I am privileged to serve as your President. I will be a friend, and I will not let you down.

Shocked You've done a great job A-Bob. I'll read it closely later, but from a quick look at it, I can tell you've put a lot of work into it. Great job!

This is CNN...

There are several sources reporting that the Romney camp is considering challenging the results in Michigan and asking for a recount. Romney previously lost Michigan by .01%, which is close enough for his campaign to ask for a recount. The Romney camp was not reached for comment.

Marsha Blackburn makes a stop in Asheville, North Carolina, where she is endorsed by Senator Richard Burr...

Today, President Barack Obama announced he'll seek reelection. This means that the President is asking Americans to give him four more years to let this nation spiral out of control with insurmountable spending and a government takeover. We can't let that happen, and we need a leader who will stop it! That's why I'm endorsing Marsha Blackburn, and I encourage all North Carolinians to get on board her campaign!

Marsha Blackburn heads up to Scranton, Pennsylvania where she is endorsed by Pennsylvania Senator Pat Toomey...

America is at a crucial hour. We have an opportunity to take back the Senate as well as expand on our majority in the House. But what we must win, is the Presidency. We cannot afford to continue down the socialist road President Obama is leading us. We need a clear alternative in this election; a true conservative voice. That candidate is Marsha Blackburn, and I am pleased and honored to endorse her today. I have no doubt that under a Blackburn administration, America will be seeing much better days than the ones we've been seeing.

Charlie Crist electrifies a crowd in Tampa Bay for Romney...

Mitt Romney...a man of character, integrity, and honesty. I know, you all know, that Mitt Romney has the capablitity of becoming one of the greatest Presidents he's ever seen! Right now, America doesn't need a leader who is soft on key issues like immigration and crime. We need someone who will stand up for everyday Americans, and that candidate is clearly Mitt Romney! John me, and let's give Romney a huge win in Florida!
- Charlie Crist

Mitt Romney has planned appearances in Tampa Bay, Miami, and Jacksonville for the day...
11722  Election Archive / 2012 Elections / Re: Values Voter Summit straw poll: Sept. 17-19 on: September 18, 2010, 02:32:39 pm
Pence - 24%
Huckabee - (22%)
Romney - (13%)
Gingrich - (10%)
Palin - (7%)

Wonder what this will do to the Intrade rankings of Pence and Huckabee . . .
Whew, when I didn't see Romney even on Top 5, I was getting worried. Thank heavens he was at least third! Smiley Not bad considering the people who were voting in this. What makes me even more happy is that only 7% voted for Palin.
11723  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Tmthforu94's House and Senate Predictions on: September 18, 2010, 02:12:40 pm
Marion was one of four counties in Indiana that swung to the Democrats in 2004. Ellsworth would have to end up under 40% for him to lose Marion, unless Coats has a base there (given that Stutzman won there in the primary, I'm guessing he doesn't).
Regardless, I think Marion County will be close. I'll be up there next week at a Republican event and will be able to see what the enthusiasm is.
11724  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Tmthforu94's House and Senate Predictions on: September 18, 2010, 02:04:26 pm
Current Indiana Prediction:

Dan Coats: 53.47%
Brad Ellsworth: 44.61%
Rebecca Sink-Burris: 1.57%
Others:





You have Ellsworth losing Marion County but winning Porter County?  That's like Obama in 2012 winning Virginia but losing New York

Obama won Porter county by 7 points in 2008, and Daniels lost by 11. The county is more Republican on Presidential elections, but mainly votes Democrat on everything else. Marion County swung hard for Obama, but it did vote for Bush in 2000 and was tight in 2004. Indy also has a Republican mayor, and Coats is from that area. These two counties aren't comparable to Virginia and New York at all.

I'd like to congratulate Governor Huckabee for his surprising win Michigan, as well as a win in South Carolina. I'd also like to congratulate Tancredo on his impressive showings.

I am confident that we will win Florida, and I am confident we will win this nomination. More and more Americans are believing in our message of hope and change, not a message of  higher taxes and weakness on crime and immigration. I believe in the American dream, and I hope to implement policies that can make others dreams become a reality.

Mitt Romney has planned stops over the next week with Charlie Crist.
