Can Mike Braun beat Joe Donnelly in Indiana?

Published

on

Yes.

Mike Braun has been doing more than surging in the polls. He is bringing a message of hope to conservatives and right-leaning Independents in a state that should never have had Joe Donnelly (D-IN) as a Senator.

The latest polls show them neck-and-neck. While we don’t hold polls in the esteem that most news organizations do, it’s good to see a close race to unseat an incumbent Democrat.

This isn’t the first time we’ve talked about Braun:

Senate candidate Mike Braun on finding the real causes of gun violence

https://noqreport.com/2018/10/08/senate-candidate-mike-braun-finding-real-causes-gun-violence/One of the biggest reasons conservatives should be against gun control measures, even the ones labeled as “common sense,” is because any erosion of the 2nd Amendment will lead to further removal of our gun ownership rights in general. The old adage goes, “if you give them an inch, they’ll take a mile.” That has been demonstrated as the case with leftists who take the smallest cracks in a system and attempt to exploit them until they get their full wishes.

When there is gun violence, leftists tend to go straight after the 2nd Amendment rather than attempting to diagnose the real problem.

It also isn’t the first time we’ve talked about Donnelly:

Joe Donnelly’s strategy: Tout his ‘support’ of the President

https://noqreport.com/2018/10/09/joe-donnellys-strategy-tout-support-president/Donnelly, a first-term senator, is trying to stave off a challenge from Republican businessman Mike Braun, and in doing so, keep alive Democratic hopes of taking control of the U.S. Senate after the Nov 6. congressional elections.

Democrats need a net gain of two Senate seats to take a majority in the upper chamber, which would allow them to more effectively counter Trump’s agenda. But doing that not only means winning at least two seats now held by Republicans, but also holding onto seats in conservative states that Trump won, including Indiana, Montana, North Dakota and West Virginia.

The good people of Indiana need to step up and put Mike Braun in the Senate. He has the right ideas and a unique perspective that brings hope to a country desperately needing it.

Stench of impeachment must stick to Democrats in 2020

Stench of impeachment must stick to Democrats in 2020

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has one goal. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not impeachment of the President. She’s supporting it now because she has to for various reasons ranging from a revolting left within her own caucus to acting as a smokescreen to protect Joe Biden and other Democrats (possibly including herself) who have engaged with the previous corrupt government of Ukraine. But it’s not what she wants because she knows it will fail in the end.

Her actual goal is to clear the stink of impeachment off the Democrats before the 2020 election. Yes, it’s going to stink. Thanks to the antics of Adam Schiff and others, it’s already stinking pretty badly and it hasn’t even had very much time to rot in front of American voters. She wants to get in, check off the impeachment box on her list of “accomplishments” as Speaker, and move onto the next component of obstruction that she’ll hope to ride into the 2020 election.

We cannot allow that to happen. This stink must remain firmly attached to the Democrats who support impeachment all the way through to election day next year. They need to wear impeachment like an albatross of shame around the necks, and they must not be allowed to shed it until they’re ousted from office.

This is important. The press is going to help them “move on” after it’s done. But conservatives must keep pressing it. We cannot allow it to fall off the radar as we’ve done so many times in recent elections. Benghazi should have sunk President Obama, but he was let off the hook. The Brett Kavanaugh confirmation debacle should have helped Republicans expand their control of the Senate, but it was old news a month after his confirmation just in time for the 2018 midterm elections. Time and time again, Democrats hand Republicans something that stinks, and Republicans fail to capitalize on it during elections.

If former FBI Director James Comey had let Hillary Clinton off the hook for her email scandal a month earlier than he did, she might have won the 2016 election. That’s how bad Republicans are at capitalizing on Democratic mistakes. Impeachment is such a mistake, a huge one. And if Republicans don’t handle it right, they’ll let it slip into the history books instead of letting it carry them to big gains in the House and Senate.

President Trump will be fine. He’ll capitalize on it without even trying and will use it to win his reelection. Down-ballot races must do the same. Any Republican running against a Democrat who supports impeachment should use that as the anchor that sinks the incumbent into a dark electoral pit. They should hammer this debacle until their opponents’ names are synonymous with “impeachment” among their constituents.

We must help them.

If your representative supports impeachment, make certain everyone you influence knows just how bad that really is. Today, it is allegedly popular with many. But it’s going to end up stinking very badly, and that odor must stick to Democrats like glue.

Dear Jeff Sessions: Don’t run for Senate

Published

Dear Jeff Sessions Dont run for Senate

I generally like former Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He was an above average conservative Senator before becoming a running joke and a thorn in President Trump’s side as Attorney General. One can even argue his incompetence led to the Russia investigation, the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller, and the two years of the attacks and lies the President had to face over so-called “Russian collusion.”

But other than that, he seems to be an okay guy.

From a policy perspective, he is strong. From a leadership perspective, he was pretty decent during his two decades in the Senate. But he shouldn’t run for Senate again, at least not in the upcoming election. Nevertheless, rumors are spreading that he is being “drafted” as buzz builds around him potentially joining the crowded Republican field in Alabama.

Jeff Sessions 2020 U.S. Senate Run Buzz Swirls in Alabama

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/10/12/jeff-sessions-2020-u-s-senate-run-buzz-swirls/In recent days, there has been rampant speculation that former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions could enter the contest for his old seat. Sessions held the seat currently occupied by Jones from 1997 through 2017. He gave up that seat to serve in the Trump administration until his unceremonious exit in late 2018.

If Sessions were to enter the race for the Republican Party’s nomination, he would be joining a crowded field that includes former Auburn University head football coach Tommy Tuberville, U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-AL), Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, State Rep. Arnold Mooney (R) and former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore.

Late last month, Tuberville secured front-runner status by receiving the endorsement of the influential Alabama Farmers Federation.  At the time and to this day, publicly available polling has shown Tuberville with a substantial lead over the rest of the field.

It’s quite a who’s-who among Alabama Republicans running for the nomination to take down Democrat Doug Jones.  Tuberville is a legend. Byrne won his Congressional district by 27 points in 2018. Merrill won his statewide election by 22 points. Mooney has made a strong name for himself in the state legislature. And who doesn’t know Moore, who lost to Jones after a teen-dating scandal from the 1970s broke in the Washington Post.

Nevertheless, Sessions has a ton of die-hard supporters in Alabama. His entry into the race would cause an upheaval in the primary and bring turmoil to an already-crowded race. It would be different if there weren’t strong candidates to run, as the GOP desperately needs to retake the seat to maintain control of the Senate. But there are. The candidates are strong enough. Whoever emerges as the primary winner will be the frontrunner in the general election.

Jeff Sessions’ time has come and gone. He made decisions that pushed him out of favor with the President, and thus out of favor with many in the Republican Party. His candidacy is unnecessary with such a strong field already running.

Why Eddie Rispone matters to more than just Louisiana

Published

Eddie Rispone Louisiana

Yesterday’s Louisiana gubernatorial election ended with no candidate receiving a majority of the votes. Incumbent Democrat John Bel Edwards led the pack, but Republican businessman Eddie Rispone pulled off a minor upset against U.S. Representative Ralph Abraham. Until the last week, Abraham held a lead in the polls over his GOP competitor in a contentious battle to earn the chance to go head-to-head against Edwards.

Now, Abraham has endorsed Rispone for the November 16 run-off, and so should everyone who supported the Congressman’s bid.

This is important for more than just Louisiana’s future. The nation needs to see that President Trump’s support as an outsider in 2016 hasn’t waned, and Rispone is the perfect outsider to deliver that message to the nation. His parallels to the President’s rise to power are similar. If anything, Rispone has been more consistent as a long-time financial backer of Republicans in the state and across the nation.

His victory over a popular incumbent Democrat would bolster the perceived notion that the GOP is able to galvanize behind their representatives in the 2020 election. Democrats are already expecting record turnouts in 2020. It’s imperative that Republicans match or exceed those records as even having Independents favoring President Trump may not be enough. But it’s the down-ballot implications for 2020 that a Rispone victory will help. Republicans have had challenges in presidential election years getting solid turnout in blue states. This apathy has helped Democrats in states like California and New York maintain a monopoly, but in red states like Louisiana, the opposite isn’t true.

By beating Edwards, Rispone will give momentum across the nation to Republicans who are considering also running against popular Democratic candidates. Edwards is a moderate by today’s Democratic standards; he opposes gun control, abortion, and impeachment. Other moderate Democrats in red states will be watching very closely to see if Rispone can use a conservative message to oust Edwards.

Our own endorsement of Eddie Rispone continues forward to the run-off election. He’s what the GOP needs. He’s what Louisiana needs. He’s what America needs. November 16, we’ll see if Louisiana can turn red again.
