MA-Sen: Boston Mayor Menino Endorses Elizabeth Warren

By: Friday September 21, 2012 2:15 pm

I tweeted my commentary on last night’s Massachusetts Senate debate between Scott Brown and Elizabeth Warren in real time, so no need to go much further on it. Basically you saw an incumbent Senator clearly behind in his own internal polling, so he decided to go hard negative. Warren wasn’t flustered by it and played [...]

WI-Gov: Plenty Evidence of Walker’s Conduct Demanding Removal From Office

By: Monday May 21, 2012 11:05 am

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, a conservative paper, endorsed Scott Walker in the June 5 recall election over the weekend, saying that his removal from office “isn’t justified.” The Sentinel spends the rest of the editorial adding that Walker’s assault on collective bargaining went too far, primarily to “deal a harsh blow to a key Democratic constituency.” [...]

NC-Sen: Lewis Throws Support To Marshall, Not DSCC-Backed Cunningham

By: Wednesday May 19, 2010 10:22 am

We saw more liberal candidates win across the board in primary elections last night, and a key endorsement could propel another to victory in the North Carolina Senate runoff. While Elaine Marshall won the primary over the DSCC-backed Cal Cunningham, she did not get the 40% necessary to avoid a second runoff. But the third-place [...]

OK, so we’re on to the endorsement for Jane Harman. And this is a crackup. CDP Chair John Burton has kind of lost control of the thing. More in a minute. Here’s the deal. Burton rushed the question on the endorsement to the floor, asked for whether there would be speakers on behalf of Winograd [...]

CA-36: Floor Fight Between Winograd and Harman Today, Impromptu Debate Yesterday

Marcy Winograd, the progressive primary challenger to Jane Harman in CA-36, gathered enough signatures again last night to force the question of a state party endorsement to the floor of the convention.

CA-36: Winograd Denies Harman CDP Endorsement

By: Thursday April 8, 2010 6:00 am

In a fairly impressive feat of organizing, Marcy Winograd, the progressive challenger to Jane Harman in California’s 36th District, was able to pull Harman’s state party endorsement after amassing enough objections from state party delegates. From the press release: Congressional Candidate Marcy Winograd (CA-36), working with the Progressive Caucus of the California Democratic Party (CDP), [...]

PA-Sen: Specter Picks Up AFL-CIO Endorsement

By: Tuesday March 30, 2010 11:26 am

Arlen Specter, the Republican-turned-Democrat now running for re-election, has received the endorsement of the Pennsylvania AFL-CIO in his primary campaign against Democratic Rep. Joe Sestak. Specter has received plenty of labor endorsements before, even when he ran as a Republican (they backed him in 2004 over Democrat Joe Hoeffel). But considering that Specter vocally opposed [...]

Extremist Outsiders Like The State Labor Coalition Endorse Halter In AR-Sen

By: Wednesday March 3, 2010 9:07 am

Throughout the next two months, we will hear a common complaint from Blanche Lincoln as she runs for re-election against Bill Halter: that outside interests are coming into Arkansas and telling the people who should represent them. Surely she’ll say that about, national labor groups, and the Sierra Club, which just launched a series [...]

Gillibrand “Underhanded” For Seeking Endorsements For Her Campaign, Ford Says

By: Monday February 8, 2010 11:41 am

Harold Ford is upset that Kirsten Gillibrand, the incumbent and announced candidate for the US Senate seat in New York, is doing what announced candidates do, by seeking endorsements. This is very underhanded, Ford says, and clearly Gillibrand should cease all campaign activities until her opponent decides whether or not to run. That would be [...]
