I have been following the Senate race in my home State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations since last December, when I asked you to meet Barry Hinckley, the guy who can take down Sheldon Whitehouse

I wrote at the time: “The Senate seat in Rhode Island could be the shocker of 2012.”

Since that time I have...

The Love Bomb now has surpassed $200,000.

This provides an enormous boost to Mia Love’s campaign as it provides cash to fund the type of local effort that outside groups cannot by law do.  It still leaves her with only half the cash on hand as Democrat Jim Matheson.  The publicity from her RNC...

Sheldon Whitehouse famously invoked Kristallnacht and lynchings when describing opponents of Obamacare, and regularly demonizes those who oppose him on policy grounds.

Whitehouse is running a campaign attacking the influence of PAC “special interest” money.

Whitehouse’s opponent, Barry Hinckley, held a press conference and released a web video pointing out that Whitehouse is Rhode Island’s...

Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) earned a special place in the annals of odious Senatorial speeches when, on the eve of the Obamacare vote in the Senate in December 2009, he invoked Kristallnacht and lynchings when speaking of opponents of Obamacare:

History cautions us of the excesses to which these malignant, vindictive passions can ultimately lead. Tumbrels...

Somewhere.

If so, and if there are results, at some point I’ll get around to it.  (As I’m writing, Romney wins big in MD)(and also, Wisconsin, now)

In the meantime, some updates from prior topics (and maybe some new):

One of my focus races is the attempt by Republican Brendan Doherty to unseat Democrat David Cicilline in RI-01, my home district.

Cicilline is very unpopular due to the mess he left behind when he was the Mayor of Providence.  While Cicilline was able to hide the problems when he ran for...

Sheldon Whitehouse, the luckiest investor in America, has to go.

Support Barry Hinckley.  With recent news of Whitehouse’s abysmal favorability rating, it’s doable.  It would be the shocker of 2012, in a place they are not expecting it.

Hinckley just released this web video on The Historic Ocassion of The Visit of The Honorable Joseph...

Operation Counterweight commenced on June 10, 2011:

Why do I have this feeling that the back-stabbing and petty politics of the Republican insiders are going to leave me completely unexcited about the presidential campaign, and more focused on electing conservatives to Congress as a counterweight to the (hoped...

Operation Counterweight has started.  We need people in the House and Senate who are not afraid to fight.

In many states and districts, it will be easy.  In others it will be hard. We are going to have to win a couple of hard ones in order to have the Senate...
