May 6 is the Republican primary election in Ohio, North Carolina, and Indiana. Tea party and conservative groups are hoping to hand GOP leaders like John Boehner a rebuke. Their goal is to scare the establishment to straighten up and fly “right” (less liberal).
Once Orange Slush gets past his primary challenger you can expect him to push amnesty very quickly.
In North Carolina’s U.S. Senate race, the establishment insists upon Thom Tillis, Speaker of the State House. The tea party and Ann Coulter are pushing hard for challenger Dr. Greg Brannon M.D. There are six other candidates, including contender Mark Harris. Tillis must win over 40% to avoid a run-off. A conservative in a run-off would probably beat Tillis in a low-turn-out rematch in June.
In Ohio’s 14th C.D., challenger Matt Lynch is the favorite of tea party groups against Boehner’s colleague, the incumbent David Joyce.
In Ohio’s 27th State Senate District, conservatives are hoping challenger Caleb Davenport can retire State Sen. Frank LaRose, who is leading a movement for Republicans to compromise with democrats.
In Ohio’s State House 76th District, Sarah LaTourette is the daughter of former Congressman Steve LaTourette, who is leading an effort to defeat tea party candidates with his “Defending Mainstreet PAC.” The PAC’s initial funding was from Democrat donors and labor unions. Therefore, promoting write-in candidate Linda O’Brien is a tea party priority.
Later, on June 10, challenger David Brat trying to knock off House Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia’s 7th C.D. If Cantor survives that primary challenge, it could make June 11 the start of the final push for amnesty.
Just thought you’d like an update on primaries instead of the Benghazi conspiracy for a change.
This is a bunch of a-list divas showing off at the Mets gala opening of Anna Wintour’s costume collection. The one on the far right is California Chrome,winner of last Saturday’s Kentucky Derby.
Either this is Mooch fixin’ to plant one on Anna Wintour or a Lowland Gorilla in a designer dress is about to eat a white woman’s face.
