walz vs peterson
Yesterday, Tim Walz found himself in the awkward position of opposing a bill vital to Minnesota farmers which was supported by none other than his Democratic colleague Collin Peterson. Making the situation even more uncomfortable, Peterson also happens to be the top Democrat on the Agriculture Committee, on which Walz also serves. The bill, H.R. ...

It’s another day and another instance of Gwen Graham’s rhetoric contradicting her voting record.  This time, Graham contradicts all of her talk of supporting farmers by opposing H.R. 1105, the Death Tax Repeal Act.  The Death Tax hits family-owned farms hard.  Oftentimes the heirs of a deceased farm owner are forced to sell off tractors, ...

Yesterday, Annie Kuster voted to fire herself.  She did so by voting in favor of H.R. 1563, the Federal Employee Tax Accountability Act, which makes individuals with a “seriously delinquent tax debt” ineligible to remain, or to become, federal employees.

Between such a tiny fundraising haul and an astronomically high burn rate, you can’t help but wonder if Costa is ...

Today, Ron Barber went on Tucson TV to theatrically pull the rug out from under the DCCC and announce that he will NOT run again in AZ-02. Barber made sure to say that folks in DC had encouraged him to run when making his big announcement. Instead of staying under the radar and issuing a ...
It started out yesterday morning as a story from WGBH.org showing Massachusetts Democrats Stephen Lynch and Michael Capuano saying that it’s time for Nancy Pelosi to go. Then the Hill picked up the criticism of Pelosi, followed by CNN, the AP, USA Today, New York Daily News, Politico, IJ Review, Washington Free Beacon, the Daily ...

So perennial losing candidate Annette Taddeo is running for office for the fourth time. As you may remember, in 2008 she ran for Congress…and lost. And in 2010, she ran for Miami-Dade County Commission…and lost. Then in 2014, she ran for Lieutenant Governor and…lost. Now she has announced that she’s running…again. And let’s just say, ...

Vincent Gentile just loves to tout his experience in the State Senate and City Council doesn’t he? Unfortunately for Gentile, digging into that “experience” brings up some things that will be very problematic for him as he struggles to get traction in his campaign for Congress. For today’s dive into the Vincent Gentile Experience, I ...
