The Lesson of Iowa and Mississippi primaries: Don’t give up on Kansas

The Lesson of Iowa and Mississippi primaries: Don’t give up on Kansas

Dr. Milton Wolf is challenging legacy incumbent Pat Roberts.

Joni Ernst and Chris McDaniel had no chance of winning, until she won outright and he won but is in a runoff.

Both came out of nowhere because voters rallied around a Tea Party backed candidate. In the case of Mississippi, the battle was against a legacy entitled incumbent.

The lesson is not to forget Kansas, where Dr. Milton Wolf is challenging legacy entitled incumbent Pat Roberts in the August 5 primary.

Roberts has tons of money and the Republican establishment behind him.  And a house in Virginia which is his real home.

It can happen again.  Don’t settle for less.

Dr. Wolf could use our help to level the playing field so that the people of Kansas get to decide based on the issues and future, not who has the most money for TV ads, consultants and political insiders.

If you are going to make a donation to a Senate candidate this year, make it Dr. Wolf, and as soon as possible.

Wm, you forgot to mention the difference made by Gov. Palin’s support for both candidates. She’s done robo calls for McDaniel and pretty much stood with him. She backed Ernst when Ernst didn’t have a wing and a prayer.

Yeah, I’m rubbing it in, especially for the benefit of people like retire05 who likes to put down Governor Palin as though she is nothing and irrelevant to the contemporary political scene in the USA.

    Palin’s endorsement clearly helped both candidates. But don’t forget that she’s endorsed several who lost this cycle, too. Is she even over .500?

    Romney, on the other hand, is a perfect 7-0 so far on his endorsements in contested races.

    So, who is more influential?

      Funny, you don’t mention Karl Rove’s won/loss record.

      Juba Doobai! in reply to Estragon. | June 4, 2014 at 11:26 am

      Please, if you think Romney’s endorsing Conservatives, you’re drinking something. The point is that as dar as Ernst and McDaniel are concerned, it was Palin’s endorsement that brought them to the dance. Now, you show me Romney endorsing someone who is highly unlikely and helping that person to come from behind to win, and I will cede your point that Romney’s endorsement is meaningful. Gov. Palin never bats 1.000, but for the most part, her candidates, if they remain true to their principles, are making a heck of a mark. Which Romney candidate is doing that?

      You comment like the media reports. Let’s look at the integrity of contextual reporting, shall we?

      1. How many of Romney’s endorsees did Palin also endorse? (One example is Joni Ernst, whom Romney endorsed first and. it. had. no. impact. on. her race. It wasn’t until Palin endorsed her and came to the state and campaigned with her that Ernst began to rise. Incidentally, just like Nikki Haley for Governor of SC in 2010. Exactly like Haley.)

      2. What nonEstablishment candidates has Romney endorsed? Those who were unknown? Those who were outspent?

      Now. How about going back and trying your comment again?

      Juba Doobai! in reply to Estragon. | June 5, 2014 at 8:18 am

      Here, let me rub your face in it again:

      After conservative Mississippi state Senator Chris McDaniel forced a runoff on Tuesday night against six-term incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS), former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin hailed it as a shocking victory for the grassroots.
      Last Friday, Palin made a last-minute appearance with McDaniel in his home county — Jones Country — and 2,000 people showed up at the event with less than 24 hours notice. As Breitbart News reporter Matthew Boyle observed, crowds even swarmed Palin when they saw her getting lunch at a local diner after the event with McDaniel’s campaign.
      That county saved McDaniel on Tuesday by giving him 85% of the vote combined with a massive turnout.

      Mitch Romney is this influential, you say?

Ernst is “tea party” now?

I find that odd. She was endorsed by the sitting Lt. Gov., over 20 current/former state legislators, and Mitt Romney before Sarah Palin joined in, and by the Chamber of Commerce last month.

She is a long time member of the Montgomery County Republican Women, where she won two four-year terms as County Auditor, the first in 2004.

Of course, she might not be as closely tied to the “establishment” as our nominee Sasse in Nebraska, who held four positions in three Cabinet departments under Bush before becoming President of Midland U in 2009.

Cochran is certainly expendable, predicated on the assumption McDaniel can win. He should, in Mississippi, but it is early in the criminal investigation.

All four arrested were supporters of McDaniel, and one was his former radio co-host. All are facing criminal charges. Given the campaign’s and McDaniel’s own dodgy and contradictory statements about the case so far, I wonder how people can be so confident nothing will come of it, and that none of the four will have anything interesting to say to prosecutors in exchange for lighter treatment, say, in October?

Fox is another case of questionable vetting of challengers. He posted patients’ X-rays on Facebook, for crying out loud. Did that show good judgment of the sort we need in the Senate? And while none were directly identified, HIPAA regulations don’t limit privacy to named disclosures.

Again, if he’s the nominee and HHS decides to file an action against him in October, how stupid would we look?

    You GOPe types keep telling us Tea-Partiers to suck it up when we lose and back the Establishment pick.

    Admit it Estragon. If it where Cochran with the lead over McDaniel you would be calling on McDaniel to drop out of the race for the good of the party and castigating us who would tell McDaniel to fight on. And, you would have a point.

    Here is where you lose all credibility with me.

    You are NOT calling on Cochran to drop out of the race for the good of the party. You are slinging mud at McDaniel and another Tea-Party candidate in Kansas.

    That’s the thing with you GOPe types; you have no honor.

    Juba Doobai! in reply to Estragon. | June 4, 2014 at 11:29 am

    Wow, all of those other endorsements helped propel Ernst to victory, didn’t they! Yeah, right. She’d still be waiting for the bus had the Momma Grizzly not given her the nod.

    hrh40 in reply to Estragon. | June 4, 2014 at 1:17 pm

    Tea party does not equal never-before-elected-Republican.

    Look at Ted Cruz, who has served in several public service positions before U.S. Senator.

    Charles Grassley, Louie Gohmert, Steve King are all elected Republicans, who actually do “defend and support the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic” while in office.

    Comment against straw men, much, do you?

Captain Keogh | June 4, 2014 at 9:10 am

Great. Republicans not knocking off Democratic incumbents but Republican ones. We sure are headed for victory in 2016. As for Milton Wolff – watch him bungle a rape/abortion question.

    Henry Hawkins in reply to Captain Keogh. | June 4, 2014 at 5:59 pm

    For the 461st time, Todd Akin (rape quote guy) was not a Tea Party candidate. In that race two TP orgs endorsed a candidate: The TP Express endorsed Sarah Steelman, as did Sarah Palin, while FreedomWorks endorsed John Brunner, as did Mike Lee.

While it’s exceedingly unpopular to point this out, America is more than an idea; she is a particular people and a specific culture whose way of life has been undermined by those who seek to destroy America and its white European Judeo-Christian, Western Civilization.

I am not a doctor, but I am a student of history and philosophy — and politics. And I know that the mass importation of third-world peoples into the West is a deliberate design of globalists and Marxists to tear apart what remains of Christendom.

I like you, Dr. Wolf, and what you had to say; and I hope you’re wise enough to understand the nature of the battle being waged against THIS PARTICULAR PEOPLE, in the name of non-discrimination, equality, and multiculturalism — in short, cultural Marxism.

I hope you will avail yourself of the writings of the late Lawrence Auster, on whose website are archived a wealth of insight — from him and his commenters — regarding the nature of this battle.

Captain Keogh | June 4, 2014 at 10:41 am

If McDaniel is declared the winner we very well might lose a safe seat just as we have done time and time again.
This guy has much more skeletons in his closets and the Democrats will not have to do much research, the ads will write themselves. Todd Aiken was a giant compared to this guy.
The Democrats will link McDaniel to the Republican brand, as Aiken, Mourdock, Angle, and O’Donnell were, and we will lose any chance we had to retake the Senate.
You can bank on it.

    That “safe seat” is occupied by a corrupt crony politician who has served 36 years consecutively since he was elected to the Senate in 1978 and yet you argue that re-electing that Ruling Class jerk will be a winning position for America?

    The Democratic Party is the party of evil and the Republican Party is the party of evil-enablers; enough is enough, we are standing athwart history voting to end your cycle of destruction.

    And Captains are leaders, not lazy followers who need to take the easy way out of challenging times.

    Makers Mark was a famous brand whiskey. The company was sold to a hustler who did not share the founding families values of quality and excellence. The hustler watered down the whiskey. The brand did not protect them. The whiskey now sucks.

    The GOP under Reagan was a famous brand conservative party. the party was sold out to a family of political hustlers who did not share Reagan’s values of conservativism and excellence. The hustlers–BushI, BushII, Delay, Rove, Lott, McConnel, Boehner–watered down the product.

    The GOP brand did not protect the political hustlers when the people who used to enjoy a quality product realized it was as worthless as cheap whiskey.

    The Tea-Party remembers what good whiskey tastes like and they remember what a robust, quality, visionary GOP feels like. We don’t believe the hucksters anymore and putting the same crap product in a new bottle is not going to convince anybody.

    Take your brand and shove it.

      Juba Doobai! in reply to gettimothy. | June 4, 2014 at 11:36 am

      You mean the MM guy reneged on his promise to restore the quality if the whiskey after the huge public outcry?

        Much worse. He bought Becks Bier and watered that down too!


          Juba Doobai! in reply to gettimothy. | June 5, 2014 at 7:51 am

          Oh man! That sucks! Who wants watered down Becks?!?! Jeez, you drink this stuff for two reason: taste, and to build a head. Thank God the USA has great microbrewery stuff. That brewer that sided with the homosexuals on the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Boston and withdrew sponsorship, can’t recall the name right now but the beer was good, is also off the drink list.

        to be clear, ‘bastard’ refers to the guy who watered down the booze. not you (:

    A safe seat is useless to the Republicans if the incumbent isn’t doing his job.

    A Republican’s job is to oppose the disgusting policies of the Democrats. That has always been the Republican party’s job.

      Lady Penguin in reply to tom swift. | June 4, 2014 at 12:25 pm

      I logged in just to give you the “up” arrow for your comment. Here in Virginia we’ve been battling the machinations in local politics of Establishment guy Eric Cantor, and as I’ve said previously on some of the Virginia blogs, “Why would I vote for a Republican without principles, if I won’t vote for unprincipled Democrats.

      The modern GOP is too much like a less leftist Democrat Party, and it was the Republicans who have enabled the leftists to take over the country…so now, just because someone has an “R” after their name, doesn’t mean they’re going to get our votes.

      Sent a donation to both McDaniel and Wolf this morning.

    hrh40 in reply to Captain Keogh. | June 4, 2014 at 1:20 pm


    So just how much money and pork have you or your relatives gotten from Cochran’s votes these past 36 years?

    I’m guessing gobs and gobs.
