Rhetoric vs. Results

Rhetoric vs. Results: Exploring the Democrat Record on Jobs

Are the Democrats in charge of our government listening? The last 11 months have been spent on an agenda that is out of step with the struggles of the American people. An agenda that expands the reach of government, increases the deficit, and requires us to borrow even more money from foreign countries.

Gov Poll: Brownback Tops Holland

Nothing surprising here -

The first Rasmussen Reports Election 2010 survey of that contest finds Brownback earning support from 55% of likely voters in the state to Holland’s 33%. Four percent (4%) like some other candidate, and eight percent (8%) remain undecided.

Most reassuring is that voters not affiliated with either major party prefer the Republican by 14 points. Good to see that independents are coming back to the RIGHT side.

And a for a good laugh, though hardly known at all - seven percent (7%) of the state’s voters view Holland very favorably, and six percent (6%) have a very unfavorable opinion of him.

Check out Brownback's website - http://www.brownback.com/ and be sure to add him on Facebook.

Fundraising - KS-01

Amazingly the money in the Big First is still fairly close. Huelskamp leads in amount raised and cash on hand but this early - anything can happen. Barnett has also previously run statewide so may have a leg up on the name ID. Huelskamp and Barnett also represent state senate districts within the first - Wasinger and Mann are relatively new candidates on the scene. We'll keep our eyes out for a poll in the race - but from the looks of it, anyone could walk away from the crowded primary a winner.

Wasinger $202,800 COH $100,800 Raised
Huelskamp $480,000 COH $136,800 Raised
Barnett $374,700 COH $126,600 Raised
Mann $240,800 COH $72,000 Raised

Barnett did give himself $100,000 of his money this summer but we're pretty sure that will still be accepted to run ads...

Kansas Senate Poll

A new poll finds Rep. Jerry Moran leading Rep. Todd Tiahrt 40-33% in the race for the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Sam Brownback. Compared to an identical SurveyUSA poll released 2 months ago, Moran is up 3 points. Tiahrt is down 1.

27% were still undecided - still a sizeable chunk this early out. Tiahrt recently went up on TV - we'll see if that can help him star swaying some of the undecideds his way. The only analysis we can make at this point is that this is going to get heated, quickly!

ObamaCare - Still Not Transparent

Check out this new video from the NRCC. Things have been pretty quiet regarding health care reform but we're guessing Obama will somehow claim a victory on it Wednesday night at the State of the Union.

AFP Fightin the Good Fight

Check Americans for Prosperity's new site (http://www.kstaxalert.com) Kansas Tax Alert, where people can sign up for e-mails.

State Director Derrick Sontag says the group will send out an alert whenever a bill raising taxes is introduced in the House or Senate. Clicking on the alert will then allow recipients to send e-mails to legislators.

Sontag says the goal is to allow Kansans to contact their legislators quickly.

And taxes are on legislators' agenda this year. Gov. Mark Parkinson has proposed increasing sales and tobacco taxes to close a budget shortfall.
