  1. Snyder will be fine. He’s just like the Dems in TN that will never be beaten with their districts in there current form unless some unseen catastrophe happens. Otherwise I see him winning 55-45 even if French “Bush lover” Hill get’s in.  

  2. Just look at his fundraising. Like a tea bagger he makes a ton of talk and debate and proceeds to do nothing. Being outspent 10:1 isn’t going to get him elected. I guess tea baggers are as cheap with their donations as they are with their taxes.

  3. Mark Kirk is a god damn machine! I wonder if he’s prepping for something bigger or just replenishing the war chest for the next tough reelection

  4. I have a question, would Mark Kirk be able to use the money in his congressional warchest to run for let’s say governor? I’ve been hearing that one reason why Lisa Madigan is reluctant to run for Obama’s old senate seat is because the 4.5 million she built up to run for governor cannot be used if she runs for the senate.

  5. Federal funds ( Senate, House, President ) can only be used for Federal races. State funds ( State legislator, cabinent, governor, etc) can only be used for state races, and not transfered to federal races  

  6. Virginia’s lack of contribution limits makes it possible to transfer money from a federal account to a state one. See Tom Davis bankrolling his wife’s state senate campaign in 2007, or Jim Moran writing a big check to Brian Moran this year.

  7. He must be very popular in the rich suburbs. He raised half a million dollars from zip code 60093 alone (Winnetka, IL) and another $400k from 60035 (Highland Park).

  8. In Illinois State and Federal races are split – Kirk could use his house funds for a Senate run but not a Gubernatorial run.

  9. Arkansas is still insanely Democratic everywhere except for president. Republicans were making inroads in the 90’s by capturing the Governor, Lt Governor, a house seat, and a senate seat but Democrats recaptured all those positions by 2006. (Plus super majorities in the legislature.)

  10. Snyder does not raise money the year before the election, only during election years. Snyder’s view has been politicians should spend more time helping their constituents and not spend all their time raising money, so he limits the time frame he fundraises during.

  11. While youre right that generally speaking federal dollars cant be rolled over to a state account and vice versa, there are ways around this, such as funnelling the ‘unusable’ dollars through the NRSC, RNC, etc., and then having certain things done on the candidates behalf that ultimately benefits the end goal office of which theyre running for now.  Happens all the time.

  12. He might have made the state close if he did campaign there, and especially with Hillary. And if he had announced she’d be SoS, he just might have won it along with MO, WV, and maybe made KY and TN closer also.

  13. If Obama had sent Hillary to campaign for him in AR, I think we could have made it close. He also could have used her a few more times in MO, as well.

    As for announcing her for SoS, I’m not sure that would have worked. Plus, I think people tend to frown on premature cabinet announcements before an election.
