NM US Senate Race: Closer Than You Think

Now that the dust has settled, the post-election hang over is gone and the votes have been counted I wish to direct your attention to the New Mexico Senate race. Yes, I know it has been decided, but it was closer than you think.

Incumbent Senator Tom Udall (D) faced off against businessman Allen Weh (R) on November 4th and won. The votes were 286,462 (55.56%) to 229,164 (44.44%).

The sitting Democrat really had nothing to worry about in the blue state of New Mexico. However, looking back into history at the 2008 election results shows a different scenario.

In 2008, Senator Tom Udall, then a 5 term Congressman was running for the Senate seat held by retiring incumbent Pete Domenici (R) against incumbent Congressman Steve Pearce. Ultimately Udall won with 505,128 (61.3%) to Pearce’s 318,522 (38.7%).

In 2008, the Democrats swept most the senate seats to gain a super majority. We all know this history. New Mexico would be considered a lost cause in 08. When asked if the NRSC would be walking away from the New Mexico Race (it was heavily favored to flip Democratic), Senator John Ensign stated to the Wall Street Journal:

“You don’t waste money on races that don’t need it or you can’t win.”

Dear Republicans: Do your job. KILL COMMON CORE.

Dear Republicans recently elected and those who were re-elected,

Do your job. Kill Common Core.

You effectively own this fundamentally flawed experimental and deceitful mess, now you need to clean it up.

Wake. UP.

Republican Governors, who are part of the National Governors Association and are part owners of the copyrighted Common Core, I’m talking to YOU. Common Core lost at the ballot box last week. To borrow from Engvall, ‘THERE’S YOUR SIGN!’

To our representatives and senators in Congress – stop all the hemming and hawing.

KEEP READING… THERE’S MORE… Continue reading

Barber Accuses GOP of Race-baiting by Holding Him Accountable To His Own Demands

Reverend Barber’s deck is all race cards.

Now his own agenda and words, when applied to those who follow and support him are also racist. See how that works?

Where In NC Is Clay Aiken?

Well, Bill Maher knows where Aiken is on his lack of campaigning with Obama, but where in NC is Clay Aiken? Literally, where in NC does Aiken actually live?

Take a walk through time with me?

Aiken forced to remove himself from Wake County voter rolls. He was registered to vote at his mom’s address in Chatham county. (Related – ABC 11 – 2009)

KEEP READING… Aiken’s trail of addresses and registrations is lengthy. Continue reading

“More With Four” Democrat Keeps Omitting Her Job, Moral Monday Support

Over the last month, I’ve pointed out the issues with the four people Democrats are putting up as Wake County Commissioner candidates. The News and Observer has done everything possible to portray these four in the best light possible; from not mentioning their inexperience, to their Moral Monday support and conflicts of interest.

I zeroed in on one of them before, Jessica Holmes. Ignore for a moment she has zero experience with multi-billion dollar budgets, growth planning or much of what is called for in a County Commissioner. Look at what she’s not saying.

In speaking engagements, online promotions and social media, Ms. Holmes neglects to tell people she is a Moral Monday supporter and speaker, as well as an NCAE attorney.

If Ms. Holmes is elected, will she be recusing herself from education related items or will she be quitting her job at the NCAE?

I ask this question about recusal because of her strident education activism at the NCAE and her involvement with the Moral Monday crowd on the topic.

See it for yourself.
