Yesterday Democrat Craig Johnson lost his bid for a recount for his two term Long Island Senate seat. Republican Jack Martins’ win puts the formerly blue New York Senate now in Republican hands.
The Senate is poised to have a vote on START today. Some Senators are wavering and considering voting for Obama’s plan. Both Senators Corker and Alexander are undecided. Although the treaty reaches parity in strategic nuclear weapons, it locks in a 10,000 to 200 Russian advantage in tactical nukes and bars the U.S. from developing interceptor missiles as shields.
To contact Senator Alexander, call his Memphis office at 544-4224; in D.C. (202)-224-4944. Senator Corker can be reached in Memphis at 683-1910; in D.C. at (202)-224-0566.
Former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton has endorsed Ann Wagner for RNC Chairman. She’s the Missouri Republican who managed Roy Blunt’s successful campaign and has also received backing from Tennessee Republican Party head Chris Devaney.
While most Americans are watching their pennies this Christmas time, Congress hasn’t been. Fortunately, Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) has been watching their spending and presents it all in “Wastebook.” It’s his yearly look at their profligacy and it doesn’t disappoints.
As Sen. Coburn notes, “we are borrowing over $44,000 per person in the United Staes.” Most Americans realize that somebody is going to have to pay this hefty bill.
