Election Potpourri

A few election related items you might be interested in.

1) Citizens United PAC gives Bob Barr $15,000.

The group, which typically supports conservative, Tea Party candidates, gave the maximum contribution, $15,000, to both Quinn Hillyer, running in Alabama’s first district special, and Bob Barr, running in Georgia’s 11th district.

2) Kelly Loeffler’s name keeps popping up. Will she jump into the Senate race? (Hat Tip: zpolitics.com)

Loeffler has been mentioned by political insiders as a possible candidate for Georgia in the US Senate in 2014. Incumbent Senator Saxby Chambliss announced his retirement earlier this year, creating a vacancy. Would she be interested in becoming more involved in public affairs? “I’m seriously looking at it,” says Loeffler, “giving it careful consideration. Frankly, I’m quite concerned that the average family or individual is being left behind and may not have the same opportunities that I had coming out of public schools just a couple of decades ago.” Asked if she would elaborate, Loeffler says “I’ll say this – when those that are struggling don’t see a way forward and those that are successful are made to feel like they’ve done something wrong, our country’s basis for economic freedom and opportunity for all our citizens is at risk.”

    Have any mathematicians or record-keepers added up how many dollars in national debt Jack Kingston has voted for in his career yet?

    That about sums it up. I hope she enters the race.

      “those that are successful are made to feel like they’ve done something wrong” ought to play well with those that think themselves persecuted.

    4) If you are a candidate for Congress that has never held elective office and the primary is still more than a year away, it is best not to send multiple press releases two days before a national holiday attempting to manufacture news by announcing various pledges that you’ve signed. It looks like cries for help.
