Rumbles in the Country

The "country" party's center of the country swing state, Missouri, is sticking right for the Senate seat. WaPo looks at Roy Blunt's ad vs. the Obama-Carnahan complex. RCP average here.

And Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty meets the press. TWS. Politics Daily:Tim Pawlenty Debut: The Un-Palin, Un-Romney Makes His White House Case for 2012

Un-Daniels as well.

More. NRO:
The focus of his August 11-12 sojourn will be a series of fundraisers for local GOP candidates, but a Pawlenty aide said the governor will be sure to swing by the state fair, in all its deep-fried glory, on August 12.

Taking Back the Senate

Some indicators.





More. Another indicator:
States have the authority to enforce immigration laws and protect their borders, Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox said Wednesday in a legal brief on behalf of nine states supporting Arizona's immigration law.

Cox, one of five Republicans running for Michigan governor, said Michigan is the lead state backing Arizona in federal court and is joined by Alabama, Florida, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and Virginia, as well as the Northern Mariana Islands.

Too bad there's no Senator from the Northern Marianas. We could trade NY's for it. Or Minnesota's.

Felons for Franken

Jill and Carol note vote fraud claims by Hillary voters in the Dem presidential primaries.

Voters' perceptions are that women are more likely to have integrity in politics.

Plus, "at a time when people are down on government and corruption is so big, people tend to rate women as being a bit more honest and having a bit more integrity," MacManus said.

This folds into other issues for this fall--are we a country of laws or not?

Sen. Franken (D-MN) is on the Judiciary Committee.

Take Dakota Red

Republican Rick Berg is serious about defeating Pomeroy to represent North Dakota in Congress. Pomeroy claims he's independent but his vote put ObamaCare over the top and that vote still rankles. Politico takes note.

Just south the GOP's Kristi Noem threatens phony blue dog Dem Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin: Herseth Sandlin in deep, deep trouble. Noem still in the lead against incumbent. South Dakota War College.
Noem now leads among voters not affiliated with either major party by a 50% to 35% margin.
Who will pull the voters to the polls?
