For What It’s Worth

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

My political colleagues have started dropping predictions, so I figured I may as well get on the bandwagon.  My predictions are based on what I’ve been picking up this morning as well as over the past several weeks.  Of course, things can change if we have a late surge after 3 p.m. U.S. Senate – […]

Sunday, October 31st, 2010

With less than 48 hours to go before the polls open, I bring you lots of nice little tidbits of political information for your reading pleasure or consternation. The early voting continues in Marion County.  More than 1,200 people showed up for in-person voting on Saturday and more than 19,600 people have participated.  In 2006, […]

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 […]

Thursday’s Thoughts

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

The hard thing about writing about politics daily, is what do you write about when it’s a relatively politically slow news day?  Well, if you’re me, you write about the latest political gossip, rumor and blatant innuendo, that’s what.  So here it is. The latest numbers are out on early voting in Marion County.   As […]

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 […]

When Political Ads Attack

Friday, October 15th, 2010

Mark Massa’s campaign is stepping up its efforts in the race for County Prosecutor. It’s unveiling a new television ad today going after Democrat Terry Curry and his record on sex offenders. It’s pretty heavy hitting. It will be interesting to see how the Curry camp responds.

Thursday’s Thoughts

Thursday, October 14th, 2010

Wow, there’s nothing like two weeks before an election to have multiple story lines pop up all over the place.  So let’s get started. Indiana Democrats continue to accuse Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dan Coats of lying about when he began to pursue his lobbying career.  State Chairman Dan Parker has another news conference slated […]

21 Days and Counting

Sunday, October 10th, 2010

With three weeks to go until Election Day, I’ve decided to use Sunday mornings as a time to do a bit of prospective analysis on this year’s upcoming contests.  While there’s no doubt there is a Republican wave coming, the big question is whether it will hit shore?    I’m sure it will, I’m just not […]

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, […]

Massa Hits The Airwaves, Again

Monday, September 13th, 2010

Republican Mark Massa is hitting the airwaves for a second time with an ad in his race for Marion County Prosecutor.   I’ve embedded it in this post.  And for the record, in the interest of fairness, I will be more than happy to post an ad by the Terry Curry campaign should one become available.
