Political Predictions

Friday, October 29th, 2010

I’ve got some work to do this morning, so I have to take a little break from the usual political discussion.  In the meantime, I’m opening up the forum for you to make your own political predictions.  Feel free to throw in the percentages. U.S. Senate – Dan Coats v. Brad  Ellsworth v. Rebecca Sink-Burris […]

Ellsworth: “It’s Not Over”

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

U.S. Senate candidate Brad Ellsworth tells me that any Democrats who think he is giving up and conceding the race to Dan Coats are mistaken. At a breakfast meeting  this morning with the Marion County Democratic Chairman’s Club, an organization for large contributors, sources say Ellsworth virtually admitted the race for the Senate was over.   […]

Poll Positions

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

The latest polls on Indiana’s U.S. Senate race and Secretary of State’s race are revealing some bad news for Democrats.  According to the Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics, if the election were held today Dan Coats would return to the U.S. Senate and Charlie White (at least for now) would be Indiana’s next Secretary […]

Mo Money, Mo Money, Mo Money

Friday, October 15th, 2010

The campaign finance reports for the latest filing periods are up.  Here’s how the candidates are doing and what they’ve got left to spend for the last two weeks of the 2010 campaign. The Dan Coats campaign tells me they raised more than $2 million in the third quarter and have more than $1.3 million […]

Another Day, Another Political Attack

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

When you see an opening, no matter how small, take advantage of it.   I am sure that slogan is on the wall right now over at Indiana Democratic State Headquarters.  For months Democrats have been pushing the issue of Republican Dan Coats’ ties as a former lobbyist.   To date, I would argue, that charge has […]

That Didn’t Impress Me Much

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Dan Coats was a lobbyist.  Brad Ellsworth supports the Obama-Pelosi agenda.  We need smaller government. If you missed Monday night’s debate from the IUPUI Campus I just told you in 15 words virtually everything that you missed.   I was expecting more from 8th District Congressman Brad Ellsworth, former U.S. Senator and Ambassador Dan Coats and […]

30 Days Out

Monday, October 4th, 2010

With the election about a month away, I figured now would be as good a time as any to blog about the political lay of the land and what the world may look like on November 3. These assessments are made on a number of factors (conversations with politicos from across the state, campaign people, […]

Rest In Peace

Friday, October 1st, 2010

Normally I’d have a blog post today and tomorrow, but Indiana Barrister has to go dark for a couple days.  This may sound odd, but my wife’s dog, a Yorkie Terrier,  which she has had since 1993, died this Friday. It’s been really rough on her and as the good husband, my job is to […]

My Three Candidates

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Sorry to post so late in the day, but I got tied up with a few things this morning.  Here’s the latest gossip, rumor and innuendo.  As always, take it for what it’s worth. Good News and Bad news The National Rifle Association has endorsed Democrat Brad Ellsworth in the race for the United States […]

While I Was Out

Monday, September 20th, 2010

It’s amazing what happens when you take a few days off.  I was going to try to blog about a couple recent news items, but the Lovely Mrs. Shabazz only allowed me to have twitter and Facebook privileges.  But I did make it a point to keep up on the news and here are my […]
