Tea Party Claims A Scalp
World Net Daily - Columnist Vox Day writes that it's a good thing that Tea Partiers were able to bring down Sen. Bob Bennett in Utah, but many more Big Government Republicans will need to fall before the GOP really changes.  Day sees conservatives finally getting wise to the deceptive tactics of the Republican Party - and that's a good thing - but it will take years to move the party in a small government direction.

Reading Eagle - Voters in Pennsylvania will go to the polls tomorrow to determine most of the nominees for the state's federal and state offices, and it's clear that interest is high and that local Tea Parties have Pennsylvanians motivated to achieve results.  Left leaning groups are trying to generate enthusiasm as well - and the state parties can only sit by and watch as citizens take over the process.

John McCain is replacing a couple key campaign staffers a mere three months before the Arizona GOP primary.  McCain's also now launching ads where he's claiming a tough stance on border enforcement - quite a reversal of his position on the issue from just two years ago.


Sam Adams Alliance - The Blueprint: How the Democrats Won Colorado

Eric O'Keefe, Chairman of Sam Adams Alliance, wrote a review that appeared in the Wall Street Journal on a book titled The Blueprint: How the Democrats Won Colorado written by Adam Schrager and Rob Witwer. This book is a must read for individuals who are frustrated with the current structure of our political system. It describes how the Colorado Gang of Four took a business-like approach in flipping a once red state into a blue one. Their strategy created groups of think tanks 527s, 501(c)(3)s, 501(c)(4)s and new media watchdog groups.

NHDP Chair Ray Buckley's Statement on Senator Roberge's Decision to Retire 

Concord - NHDP Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement on Senator Roberge's decision to retire from the State Senate:
"Senator Roberge's retirement comes as a complete surprise and with a bit of sadness.  She is one of the few Republicans in the New Hampshire State House who can disagree without being disagreeable. Throughout her 26 years in the senate, Senator Roberge has always conducted herself with grace and dignity during a time of increased lack of civility.  Senator Roberge not only distinguished herself with her service as Dean of the Senate but she helped make US history this term by serving in the first female legislative body in the country."
