Jim Daly: Indifference Is Not a Viable Option


Would you be surprised if I told you that an election in Kentucky 34 years ago changed the course of American  history? It’s true.

On November 6 1984, a 44-year-old Republican judge defeated Walter D. Huddleston, one of the state’s incumbent senators by just 5,000 votes.

It would have been impossible for those Kentucky voters to have foreseen the impact their vote would have, but without that judge there would be no Justice Gorsuch or Justice Kavanaugh.

That’s right: the judge who won this upset election was Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell.

It was Plato who said that the penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men. We either cast our vote or we lose the right to gripe about our government

So, please: vote on November 6th.

Hugh Hewitt: Key Races in the Battle for the Senate


Rick Scott has been a great governor for Florida. He will be a great senator for the Sunshine State—and he deserves support over the nearly invisible incumbent Bill Nelson.

Kevin Cramer, Congressman from North Dakota, has been a stalwart for farmers and energy producers—and he deserves support against incumbent Democrat Heidi Heitkamp who’s a sure vote to put Chuck Schumer in charge of the United States Senate with all that that means for the country.

Josh Hawley in Missouri and Patrick Morrisey in West Virginia are also running against Democratic incumbents in Missouri and West Virginia respectively—Claire McCaskill and Joe Manchin. Missouri voters need to put Hawley in D.C. and West Virginia voters ought to send Morrisey to the Capitol.

Both have been excellent attorney generals of their states.

To summarize: we need Scott, Cramer, Hawley and Morrisey in the Senate.

Michael Medved: Beto’s Blunder


Congressman Beto O’Rourke has broken fund-raising records in his challenge to Texas Senator Ted Cruz, but on a CNN townhall this new liberal “Wonder Boy” made comments that should doom his $60 million campaign and terminate his political future.

The Congressman re-affirmed that he’s ready to vote to impeach President Trump for collusion and obstruction, even before Mueller finishes his investigation or produces evidence of guilt. Dozens of other Democrats have taken similar positions, and expressed the even more bizarre hope of impeaching and investigating Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh.

During the Kavanaugh confirmation process, most Americans felt rightly disgusted by the bitterness, hysteria, wild-charges and character assassination.

Beto’s blunder makes it obvious to all that anyone who votes for Democratic Congressional or Senatorial candidates is voting for more of the same.

Jennifer Horn: The Left Ought Not Be Rewarded


The Democrats resorted to extreme measures to defeat Justice Kavanaugh.

Even though they lost, they apparently have no shame or intention of changing their ugly tactics.

Republican Senator Susan Collins—was first bribed, then vilified and threatened for supporting him.

Why the ugliness?

As we look to the election, Democrats are terrified they may lose government support for their ardent supporter, Planned Parenthood.  They justify it as “protecting women’s health” but it’s really about money and power.

They didn’t mind risking the health of Dr. Christine Ford, their star anti-Kavanaugh witness.

After losing in 2016 and failing to stop the Supreme Court nominee—the behavior of the Left has turned radical and dangerous.

It ought not be rewarded.

Join me in voting Republican on November 6.
