Awkward…GOP wants your boss to decide on your birth control.

Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore. Because even in Kansas they’re not this crazy about restricting affordable access to women’s reproductive health.

Baseless US Chamber Ad Misleads in VA

The US Chamber, funneling millions of dollars from the biggest businesses, went on the air this week to try and prop up George Allen’s campaign in Virginia with no concern over the facts.

North Dakota swamped by $200,000 in US Chamber ads

The Chamber of Commerce dumped $200,000 in ads on North Dakota this week, aiming to rehabilitate Senate candidate Rick Berg’s image in the state. Funneling millions of dollars from big business, the Chamber was eager to prop up Berg, with little regard for the facts.

Josh Mandel: Always A Candidate, Never A Good Public Servant

The Cleveland Plain Dealer provides in-depth look today at Josh Mandel, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Ohio.  Looking at Mandel’s record, it’s even less surprising that Sen.

Connie Mack, Shameless Flak

After Senate candidate Connie Mack dropped back into Florida last week, he’s taken an odd tack in his public appearances. Rather than meeting with Floridians and hearing what’s important to them, Connie’s been doing the bidding of his fellow legacy-politician Mitt Romney in his new unofficial role as Newt Gingrich’s stalker.

Connie’s been spotted trailing Newt […]
