Wednesday Election Notebook
MS-01: I mentioned earlier today that Angela McGlowan has completed her campaign website, and if you stroll over to the Issues section, you will see that the first topic she mentions is the Second Amendment. McGlowan says, in part, “I will fight against each and every attempt by government to require law-abiding citizens to register the firearms they have the right to possess.”
MS-01: Angela McGlowan is also starting to utilize her Twitter account. She was recently asked by some random person in Ohio- “Are you really for gun control?” McGlowan responded by saying, “No! These are lies spread by my opponent.”
MS-01: Travis Childers apparently didn’t give a response to The Hill about the Congressman’s position on healthcare reform when recently asked. I have no reason to suspect Childers would change his vote to yes, but it makes you wonder why his office wouldn’t respond if for no other reason then to dispel claims by opponents that he waits to get the OK from Nancy Pelosi before voting. That said, The Hill has moved Childers from the “No comment” column to “Firm No, Leaning No, Likely No.”
MS-04: Steven Palazzo made a comment on his Facebook page that will probably raise some eyebrows from Joe Tegerdine supporters. Palazzo said, “…we are going to send a conservative and a Republican to Washington. One who was born and raised in Mississippi.” Tegerdine, as has been mentioned on this blog, was born and raised in the Northwest before moving to Petal a few years back.
MS-04: Joe Tegerdine and Steven Palazzo both made appearances at a GOP event last night in Hattiesburg. According to Tegerdine, it “ended up being a major event with a debate like format.”
MS-04: Steven Palazzo has just updated his campaign website, PalazzoForCongress.com. It now how has plenty of information including a bio, stances on issues, news, and a blog.
2010 House & Senate: Roger Wicker played political analyst recently when he said this about Democrats and healthcare: If Senate bill passes, it will be “the paramount issue that will see a lot of (Democrats) going home for good after the November elections.”
2012 President: Writing on his blog, Jim Herring calls Haley Barbour the “dark horse” in the race and lays out several reasons why Barbour would make a strong candidate. He also touches on some of Barbour’s baggage, and how he could handle what would potentially be thrown at him.
