Apparently there's no confirmation. The link is now broken, but some family members do believe he has passed.

This is nice to see. I support same sex marriage, but think the states should decide.

Do you also think states should be able to ban interracial marriage?

Benishek was probably the single least likely Republican survivor of the 2012 general election. Considering that Snyder's right-to-work probably won't be well received in this sort of white-working-class, traditionally Democratic area, I can see this seat swinging towards the Democrats in 2014 even if it is a lean R year and Snyder survives. That said, McDonnell, who represented large parts of this district in the state House and was active in politics earlier, has more experience and might be a stronger candidate than Cannon. But this'll certainly be a top Democratic target next year almost no matter what.

Benishek is a yooper. This fellow is not. Advantage, Benishek.

Most of the population in this district doesn't live in the Upper Peninsula.

Ken Cuccinelli Appeals To Defend Virginia's Anti-Sodomy Law At Supreme Court

Quote
Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, the GOP's 2013 gubernatorial candidate, filed a petition Tuesday with the U.S. Supreme Court seeking to uphold Virginia's anti-sodomy law.

Cuccinelli wants the court to reconsider a March 2013 decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit striking down the state's "crimes against nature" statute. The 4th Circuit ruled that the law did not pass muster in light of the Supreme Court's 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision, which struck down the latter state's anti-sodomy law as an unconstitutional criminalization of Americans' sexual conduct. The Virginia law, however, remained on the books.

68  Election Archive / 2014 Gubernatorial Election Polls / FL-Quinnipiac: Crist, Nelson defeat Scott by 10 on: June 18, 2013, 06:35:45 am

Quote
Florida Gov. Rick Scott trails former Gov. Charlie Crist 47 – 37 percent in his 2014 reelection bid, compared to his 16-point deficit in March, and gets his best job approval rating so far, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.

Crist, the Republican-turned independent-turned Democrat, was up 50 – 34 percent in a March 20 survey by the independent Quinnipiac University.

In today’s survey, U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, who some Democrats are pushing to run for governor, tops Scott 48 – 38 percent, running as well as Crist. The incumbent would defeat former state Senate Democratic leader Nan Rich 42 – 36 percent.

Voters are divided 43 – 44 percent in their job approval for Gov. Scott, his highest approval rating since he was elected and up from a negative 36 – 49 percent score March 20.

Voters still say 50 – 35 percent that Scott does not deserve to be reelected, but that also is his best score so far on that question, better than the 55 – 32 percent ‘no’ vote in March.

Scott gets a divided 40 – 42 percent favorability rating, but that also is up from a negative 33 – 46 percent favorability rating March 20, and his best score so far.

“It is an indication of how far down Florida Gov. Rick Scott’s numbers have been that he can take some solace from a poll that finds him losing by 10 points to his predecessor in the governor’s office,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “In addition to cutting the deficit between himself and former Gov. Charlie Crist, Gov. Scott sees his tepid job approval and favorability numbers and his still-negative reelection numbers as notably improved.”

“Now that doesn’t mean that happy days are here again for the governor, but if he is going to make a comeback these are the kind of steps that would be required. Whether it is the start of something larger, we’ll see in the coming months,” Brown added.

By 48 – 31 percent Florida voters have a favorable opinion of Crist, virtually unchanged.

Sen. Nelson has a 41 – 23 percent favorability rating and a 51 – 29 percent job approval, while 84 percent of voters haven’t heard enough about Ms. Rich to form an opinion of her.

In a possible matchup between Scott and Crist, the governor carries Republicans 75 – 13 percent, but loses Democrats 83 – 8 percent and independent voters 45 – 33 percent. Men are tied 43 – 43 percent, while women back Crist 51 – 32 percent.

“For Scott to win, he will have to do better among Republicans than Crist does among Democrats; carry independent voters and drastically reduce his deficit among women. That’s a tall order, but there are 17 months until the election,” Brown said.

Crist’s change in party affiliation is positive evidence of political pragmatism, 47 percent of voters say. Another 44 percent of voters say this is negative evidence that Crist lacks core beliefs. In March, 50 percent of voters said Crist’s party switching was a good thing, compared to 40 percent who saw it as a bad thing.

One reason that Scott may be edging up in the voters’ eyes is that by 33 – 18 percent voters say the state’s economy is getting better, compared to 31 – 21 percent who felt that way in March. Among those who see an improving economy 65 percent give at least a little credit to President Barack Obama, while 82 percent credit Scott.

“The governor needs to make voters believe he is responsible for a better economy. That’s the key to his electoral future. He isn’t going to get re-elected because he is Mr. Personality. He needs to essentially convince voters, ‘You may not like me, but I’m the guy who
is making things better,’” Brown said.

Kind of hope Republicans don't settle on Charlie Summers, but I think he'll run for this.

Why is that? Could he potentially win?

I would not be surprised if he was senile at this point. He is the oldest member of the House behind Dingell, IRC.

Bill Young is pretty senile as well. 
74  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Two minority senators on: June 11, 2013, 05:27:42 pm
Yeah. Hawaii has had two minority senators since 1963-2012 and most likely will continue to in 2014. No other state has ever had two minority senators.

Schatz is Jewish, which I say still counts as a minority.

Both of Utah's senators are mormon, are they considered minorities?
75  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: Two minority senators on: June 11, 2013, 04:25:52 pm
I guess it depends on your definition of a minority. Both Menendez (Hispanic) and Booker (African American) are light skinned.


So is Marco Rubio
