Even worse than it just plain sucks, the R’s are sure to be insufferable about it.
(CNN) - Former Gov. Mark Sanford will win the race for South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District, CNN projects. With 70% of the vote in, Republican Sanford leads Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, 54%-45%.
Once considered a possible presidential candidate, Sanford left office at the end of his term having admitted to an extramarital affair and under a cloud of ethics violations. He represented the district for three terms before being elected governor.
Haven’t seen it yet, but Gotta said she decimated him. Via. Below is the complete debate if you have the time and the interest.
Gosh. I'm sooo sorry to hear of their difficulties.
House Democrats are winning the early round of the 2013 fundraising battle over a number of at-risk Republicans.
Several House Republicans facing potentially tough reelection campaigns reported lackluster results in first-quarter filings with the Federal Election Commission, which were due Monday.
Those stragglers could prove a headache for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) as it fights to prevent Democrats from picking up seats — or winning back the House — in the 2014 midterms.
“This should be a wake-up call to Republican members,” one GOP strategist told The Hill.
“They need to step it up if they want to keep the majority and keep [Rep.] Nancy Pelosi [D-Calif.] out of the Speaker’s chair.”
Is how you say in English, a blow out. C’mon Sanford, let’s make this interesting.
(Reuters) – Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of TV comedian and political satirist Stephen Colbert, won the Democratic Party nomination on Tuesday in a special primary election for one of South Carolina’s seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, CNN projected on Tuesday.
Official results showed Colbert Busch winning 96 percent of the vote over rival Ben Frasier with 9,130 votes counted. The general election will be held on May 7.
Added- Not quite the rip roaring comeback I’m sure he wished for but…
Oh lookey, one of my very own Indiana reps thought up this bullshit. Funny that they think a man who makes more on residuals on his book in a week than they make in a month would be a-sceered of their tail chasing. Someone should alert these asshats constituents on the crud they’re passing in congress as opposed to JOBS BILLS that really matter.
House Republicans introduced legislation on Tuesday that would withhold President Obama’s salary any time he’s late submitting a budget proposal to Congress.
The bill from Rep. Larry Bucshon (R-Ind.) is similar to the No Budget, No Pay Act that was signed into law earlier this year by Obama. That law requires the salaries of House or Senate members to be held in escrow if their respective chamber fails to pass a budget by April 15.
Under Buschon’s bill, the president’s pay would also be put into escrow if he is late proposing a budget to Congress by the statutory deadline, which is the first Monday in February.
