PA-12: There appears to be significant pushback against Jason Altmire's characterization of Mark Critz supporting the Republican Study Committee's budget. Minority Whip Hoyer and other Democrats are running to the defense of Critz after Altmire launched attack ads today attacking Critz from the left. In a sign the Pennsylvania machine has its candidate, Philadelphia Democratic warlord Bob Brady is leading the charge in Pennsylvania.
Christie: Chris Christie thinks he will be more ready to run for POTUS in 2016. He stated this in an interview with Oprah where he states he is not ready for the office. Brokered convention advocates can die a little inside again.
Romney-Santorum: Romney appears to moving in for the kill against Santorum by attacking Santorum over his ties to big labor.

Elections have consequences -- from the race for President to the race for one seat on a city council. The political economist Max Weber wrote that the state possesses a monopoly on the legitimate use of force. But in the United States, the state is divided into myriad federal, state, and local entities. And the elections to fill those entities are the products of the fascinating interactions between campaigns, party affiliations, voter turnout, and the media spotlight. Red Racing Horses analyzes those elections -- from a Republican-leaning perspective -- to keep a close eye on the process of electing officials, and to offer our perspective on the election-related issues of the day.
