Please God let Hatch lose. It's some reassurance, at least, that Utah seems to only vote for people with an (R) by their name.

11 NOVEMBER 2011

Silencing rumors to the contrary, Hawaii Senator Dan Akaka announces that he will, in fact, be seeking a 5th term. Despite the very old age (88) of Hawaii's Senators, they both remain extremely popular, as does Obama; Hawaiians don't seem to care that both Akaka and Inouye are approaching 90, as they both have astronomical approval ratings. Akaka should be in good shape for reelection.

Survey USA: Hawaii Poll

Do you approve of Dan Inouye's work in the Senate?
Yes-76%
No-18%

Do you approve of Dan Akaka's work in the Senate?
Yes-71%
No-23%

Do you approve of Barack Obama's performance as president?
Yes-66%
No-30%

In 2012, would you vote to reelect Dan Akaka?
Yes-63%
No-34%

At the same time Ben Nelson of Nebraska announces his retirement. I don't think I need to show any Nebraska polls...

Thats right.

Sorry guys. I've had a lot of stuff on my to-do list.

As KS said, I had exams all of last week, so I couldn't get to the TL.

Also, KS and I have been creating our 2012 redistricting map; this map will play a huge role in my TL , so I invested a lot of time and energy into it.

Well, now I have 5 weeks off and I will be updating my TL very regularly.

Thanks for your patience and concern.

18 NOVEMBER 2011

We all knew this was coming...

Img


"After talking with Todd, Bristol, Willow, Track and Piper, they have said that they will be supportive of me running for president. As many of you have speculated and guessed, I will be running for president in 2012.

By seeking the highest office in this great country, I will try to put America on a new path. A path that our Founders had envisioned. A path that will lead average Americans, people like Joe the Plumber or even middle class American patriots like my family, to have a greater say in their government. The policies of this administration have put a choke hold on our great middle class and the businesses that drive our country forward. At this rate, America will never rise up to the great potential it showed under the Reagan and Bush eras. The small businesses that have been pumping life into our country for decades have never been hurting this much.

For these 3 years, President Obama and VP Joe Biden have bankrupted our country, our people and our children's future with their liberal, socialist policies. I am running to give Americans a second choice. By choosing me over Obama, Americans will be choosing common-sense conservatism over heavy-handed tyranny and they will choose freedom over oppression and big government.

While President Obama, VP Biden, their czars, Harry Reid and faceless bureaucrats have been trying to ruin America, I have been on the campaign trail trying to get Constitutional Conservative candidates elected. These candidates ranged from governors like Susana Martinez and Nikki Haley, as well as Congressman, like Michele Bachmann and Rand Paul. It was partly due to my efforts that the American people took back the House in 2010 and sent a loud and clear message of disapproval to this White House.

Finally, I feel that I have the strong executive experiences needed to move America forward and I hope to see you all on the campaign trail! We have a a hard road ahead of us, but no major changes in America were ever easy! We can do this! God bless America!

If Arizona's in questions and Montana is going Democrat, that's a bad sign right there.

Glad to see this back again!

And the redistricting map will be good. Sadly, with all the Republicans running the Legislatures, there will be a lot of GOP Gerrymanders...

EARLY DECEMBER 2011


Candidate Announcements:

In Nevada, embattled Sen. John Ensign, in addition to his Democratic opponent, Dina Titus, gets 2 more challenges from within his own party. A popular figure in his district, Congressman Dean Heller steps up against Ensign. Despite Sen. Ensign's relatively conservative record, he also picks up a challenge from his right in Nevada Tea Party Chairwoman and 2010 GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle. Although Angle lost by a wider-than-expected margin in 2010, she remains popular with the conservative wing of the GOP and the Tea Party Express has pledged to spend millions on her campaign.
Many pollsters predict that Titus will now have an advantage in the general election; she is the only announced Democrat while 3 high-profile Republicans will be competing against each other. While Nevada's unemployment rate is still lingering at 12%, it looks like they could very well elect another Democrat to the Senate if the GOP primary is bloody enough.
Img


In North Dakota, 2-year Governor Jack Darlrymple prepares to challenge longtime Senator and Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad. While Conrad is generally considered to be a powerful figure in North Dakota, some in his home state say that after years in Washington, he's become just another "Beltway Insider." Initial polls show a closer than expected race. In 2010, Senator John Hoeven was elected with 74%; not a good sign for Conrad.
Img


Massachusetts Democrats got a big boost when Vicki Kennedy, wife of the 47-year MA Senator Ted Kennedy, declared her intentions to seek her late husband's seat. Despite the very leftward tilt of MA, this Senate race promises to be one of the most competitive in the country. Scott Brown has made a conscious effort to distinguish himself from his more conservative Senate colleagues, as he has split with them on some key issues such as abortion and education funding. But, will it be enough? Many are expecting Obama to carry MA by at least 15 points in 2012. Will Brown get enough crossover support to fend off Kennedy? This seems to be the big question in MA. Polls show Brown narrowly ahead, but this is somewhat due to lack of knowledge about Kennedy.
Img


Rep. Jason Chaffetz and 2010 GOP Senate contender Tim Bridgewater confirm that they will both be seeking the GOP nomination to take on Independent Republican Orrin Hatch in the general election. Hatch, facing the wrath of the far right for his extensive bipartisan work with the late Ted Kennedy, earned a spot on the Tea Party Express' 'Most Wanted' list. By running as an independent, Hatch hoped to salvage his career and squeeze one last term out of his right-leaning electorate. Because of Caffetz's and Bridgewater's nearly identical stances, the Republican contest is looking to be a personality contest.
