Wisconsin: Romney is ahead of Santorum by 46 to 33 percent in this poll. Gingrich and Paul are at 7 and 8 percent in this poll. Maybe that should be Paul and Gingrich as Newt continues to drop. The Wisconsin primary is in the 1st week of April.
Michigan: Romney is behind the President in his home state by 49-43 in this poll. One of our posters brought this to my attention and I thank him for that. Governor Synder's approval numbers have also ticked up in this poll to 50%.
Gingrich: Newt is fighting on in Louisiana. He vows to continue on until the Convention. He takes a shot at Santorum for saying a second term of Obama would be the same as a Romney 1st term.
Bachmann: Talk about a name from the past. Can anyone remember the Bachmann campaign for President? Apparently the people her campaign owes nearly one million dollars will remember. Most of the debt is to media firms and her campaign manager. One can argue that anything the manager was paid was too much but that is a debate for another day. One hopes the Bachmann campaign will not be like the 1984 John Glenn campaign which never paid off the s 2.4 million in debt it owed. That debt was finally written off in 2008.
Perry: On a happier note Rick Perry is using leftover money from his Presidential fund to start a Super PAC. The FEC has okayed a transfer of funds to this Super PAC and he is certainly going to mine his Rolodex for large donations.
Nevada: The House Ethics committee is investigating Shelly Berkley. She has introduced numerous bills that would directly affect her husband's business. He owns a medical company and Berkley's bills would increase reimbursement rates for all businesses that here similar to her husband's. The bills, however, were quite detailed and so specific to particular medical reimbursements that it raised qustions as to her motives.
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. Thank you for visiting, and we hope you'll enjoy the blog.
