Race is too close to call.  What a huge victory tonight. This is the 1st time a sitting US Senator in MS failed to win 50% of the vote since 1942!! It looks like a runoff and we will need to repeat this effort. Our voters will be back…and they’re bringing friends. ~ Chris McDaniel

Thank you Iowa! I am humbled and honored to accept the Republican nomination for United States Senate. Now it’s time to beat President Obama’s choice, Bruce Braley, and get this seat back into our hands. The hard work begins now—let’s send Braley home!http://bit.ly/1m9ceOQ

Live from Mississippi

Polls are closing in Alabama, California, Iowa, Mississippi, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota where Senate primaries were being held today.

Jeff Sessions had an uncontested primary. Others races captured national attention: California’s for governor (Tim Donnelly 16% vs. Jerry Brown 51%), Steve Lonegan’s bid for New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional district (he was re-endorsed by Sarah Palin), and Dr. Annette Bosworth’s struggle to take on Mike Rounds and the status quo. She was new to politics but got in courageously.

The beginning and last days of her race made national headlines and generated a lot of interest and excitement but the hottest race is down in Mississippi where things got downright nasty in an epic battle between the establishment and the People, with Halley Barbour pulling out all the stops to help incumbent Thad Cochran defeat Chris McDaniel.  There was nothing charming about assassinating a good man’s character, using taxpayer money to fund inappropriate lifestyles (for years) and asking Democrats to support him as recently as a few days ago. We can only hope it is Thad Cochran’s last election. It seems too close to call but we wish the anti-establishment fighter the best in unseating Cochran, a really out of touch and arrogant Senator who didn’t really know what the tea party was all about. Mississippians will hopefully send a clear message that they are sick of politics as usual in Barbour’s neck of the woods and are ready for real change.

McDaniel will owe his victory to no Mississippi political dynasty or even his staff (which consensus among donors and organizers both in the state and of outside groups is in fact, that a poor staff has prevented this from being a 60/40 race in McDaniel’s favor). A victory for the McDaniel will be on the backs of average Mississippians hungry for bold conservative reforms. ~Ali.

“I ABSOLUTELY trust Barack Obama.” — John Boehner
“There is no need for a special committee on Benghazi.” — John Boehner
“Wait, what? I have a primary on Tuesday and J.D. Winteregg is gaining ground? Let me make a call.” — John Boehner
“Hey, Barack…is it OK if I pretend to be conservative until Tuesday or will doing so negatively impact my golf privileges? It’s cool? Great! Love ya, man…see you on the links.” — John Boehner
That is just one of several colorful posts on J.D. Winteregg’s Facebook page on May 2nd. He is one of John Boehner’s challengers GOP primaries here in today’s primary in Ohio.  John Boehner faces two others challengers:  Eric Gurr and Matthew Artsworth.   Information on the 8th Congressional District

Boehner was first elected in 1990. He had no challengers in three primaries leading up to the 2010 election where he won 85% of the vote.  In 2012 he had one challenger and won with 84% of the vote. Boehner did some campaigning around the state. He made five stops over three days across six counties in District #18.

Boehner has $3.3 million in spare change. The Virginia-based Tea Party Leadership Fund reportedly spent $320,000 on voter outreach and Winteregg’s campaign. This is how some of it was probably spent:

Winteregg is a High School French Teacher.  Matthew Ashworth is a mortage underwriter and Eric Gurr is a computer consultant who had collected $25,000 in campaign donations.  North Carolina race also today.  Indiana Race results to come.
