Every age seeks visionaries to leave, in the wake of their genius, a changed world – but rarely are they found without a few strikeout also-rans getting a crack first.

Reports are in that the following three districts have been abandoned by the DCCC. Well, technically, all that’s happening is one week’s worth of ad purchases have been canceled by the DCCC. Then again, there’s only four weeks left – and it’s not like any of them are considered safe retentions at this point.Please click here for the rest of the post.
Left-leaning main stream media pundits called last night’s debate between Linda McMahon and Dick Blumenthal a draw. It wasn’t.
