Hell no (D)

Good to see more and more are backing out.

I'll take O'Malley as a Senator.

It would be hilarious if Hogan ran, but obviously he won't.

What would also be hilarious, and maybe more possible, is a primary with both O'Malley and Brown.

Jonathan Johnson, chairman of Overstock.com, spoke to students from various universities at the regional Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) conference held at UVU, Wednesday, Feb. 25. He spoke about public relations trends to watch in 2015.

Johnson is planning on running for governor of Utah in the 2016 election and is championing two pieces of legislation this year.
 
“Worst kept secret in the state. I’m not officially announced but I have every intention of running,” said Johnson, “Our current Governor has been in there for two full terms and I think that change is good."

One of the bills Johnson is involved in is HB 94, the right to try bill. This bill gives patients who are terminally ill the opportunity to use experimental drugs and devices that have passed the first round of FDA trial.

The other bill Johnson is interested in seeing pass this legislative term is regarding civics education. This bill would require public high school students to pass same test immigrants have to pass to become US citizens. The purpose of the bill would be to try and help those graduating from high school have an interest in being involved in government and being informed voters.

It would probably be Tim Kaine, because he's been both a Senator and Governor.

Hasn't Sarbanes been angling for this seat for a while?
He's 82.

The other one is 52.

^ Plus its one of the districts like MN-08 or IL-06 where, downballot, it leans more towards its respective party than its PVI suggests.

OTOH, Kate Marshall lives there (lost last year), so she'd conceivably be good wave insurance if Angle runs.

Angle was going to initially run in the 2011 special in NV-04, but dropped out after Amodei got in. I'm not sure why she'd want to take him on as an incumbent now, though.

Castle, even being mavericky, would still lose because he's running against a deeply entrenched incumbent. Castle would only be competitive if it was open.

I like Bob Graham, though I think I'd stay Democratic in the end.

*Raises hand*

I was really supportive of Crist in that Senate race, even if he stayed a Republican (sorry ChairmanSanchez Wink).
11  Forum Community / Forum Community / Re: Could the previous poster win a Senate election in their state? on: March 01, 2015, 11:54:36 pm
Yeah, but in an off-year like '10 or '14 would need a Cooch-type opponent just to be sure.

I'm still registered in NC, so I'm not the happiest camper here.

Pittenger and Burr are both empty suits and Tillis is obviously the scum of the Earth.

^ Actually, speaking of Angle...

Quote
Angle tells me she will “probably” run for office again. “We need people who are willing to run for office who are courageous and who will brave the mainstream media, the folks that have a tendency to say ‘gotcha!’”

Asked what she would run for, she says, “There’s several things in my state that are open, we all have a state representative and our legislature and a state senator and those are both open in 2016, we also have a congressional seat that comes open every two years and then, of course, Harry Reid’s running again. I took him on once.”

Asked if she would take him on again, she says, “I don’t know. My husband would rather I didn’t.”

Yep, I've referenced their maps some when making some of mine. Great effort.

More of East St. Louis:

2010:


Swing from 2010 to 2014:


Change in turnout:


Turnout was down almost everywhere, but East St. Louis itself cast almost 14% fewer votes in 2014, which really didn't help Quinn.

^ The GOP doesn't have a demographic situation that's conductive to its (long-term) success, as the Dems do in TX.   

Good call for Swearengin not to run. She would have gotten 40-45% against Harris in almost any outcome.

Sharon Angle might end up being the Ken Buck of this cycle.

Mark Amodei is smarter than to give up his seat and run against the People's Leader. He wouldn't give up his seat for Sharron Angle.
