Well this is a relief. Republicans could potentially be in complete charge of redistricting in Michigan. I find it encouraging that Snyder is doing better among young people than he is old.

Nah, the Dems will keep the State House.
Eh, we'll see. Republican only need 4 seats to take the House, which could happen with many candidates riding Snyder's coattails.

Mitt Romney campaigns with former President George HW Bush in Florida. Florida was one of Bush's strongest states in 1998.

There is one man more than any other I trust with the Presidency, and that man is Mitt Romney. I trust Mitt on social security, veterans benefits, taxes, foreign policy, and just about every other issue that is important to Americans. I ask you all to consider voting for this man of integrity on January 29th. Thank you, and God Bless.

I think she'd have to win South Carolina and Iowa to have a good shot. That being said, I can't see her making it through a gruesome, 6 month campaign and then win a primary. She'll be toast by October, let alone caucus day.

Likely safe? Ho ho, not in this environment.

You actually think he would have been in trouble in IN-08?

A Democratic incumbent in the midwest? Yes, I do think he would have been in trouble. Not a guaranteed loser, but it'd be a highly competitive seat.

It will be interesting to see whether or not he wins his own district in his Senate race.
As a resident of IN-08, Ellsworth would have been safe. While Republicans have a decent candidate here, we would have needed a great candidate to run against him, and we don't have that. Granted, Buchson would have kept Ellsworth under 60%, maybe even down to around 55%. But this race wouldn't be that competitive. Ellsworth had the cash, name recognition, and overall likeability in his favor.

I apologize, I briefly got sidetracked.
As Oakvale said, we have had several discussions on possible improvements, and we both plan on using our positions to help further this cause. I began working on a possible reform bill in the Mideast that could potentially be spread to the other regions, with some minor changes for each region.

Statement from Governor Tmthforu94

I want to thank everyone who voted to reelect me as their Governor! I appreciate the support, and I'm excited to continue to serve you all. I am disappointed that we had such a low turnout, but I'm sure that will change in the future. I also want to congratulate NiK on running a respectable race, and I sincerely hope he considers staying active in Mideast and Atlasia politics.

That being said, I still haven't calculated the votes yet, mainly because for the life of me I can't figure it out. I have asked a couple  great citizens to provide some assistance, so as soon as that is taken care of, results will be posted. I'd also like to state that one of my huge legislative goals is now reforming how we count Assembly votes in the region. Cheesy

Thank you!

Governor Tmthforu94

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.

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!

11720  Questions and Answers / The Atlas / Re: 2010 Endorsements on: September 19, 2010, 01:59:39 pm
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.

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.
