We have promoted six Republican candidates throughout this election season, selected for a combination of the importance of their races and their quality as conservative leaders. With the election about to begin, here is where they stand; first, the House candidates:
Mia Love has withstood a barrage of racist attacks from the Democrats and has a commanding 52-40 lead in the latest polling. She promises to be a dynamic voice for conservatism for many years to come.
Chip Cravaack is locked in a tight race with his Democratic opponent in a district that was a DFL stronghold for decades until Chip won his race in 2010. Millions of dollars have flowed into Minnesota to fund smears against Chip, and the airwaves here are full of them. But PL readers and many others have contributed to Chip’s campaign to help close the gap. At this point, the race is too close to call.
Tom Cotton is going to win. He emailed us last night to say that his race is going well and his polling reflects a sizable lead. Still, Tom is taking nothing for granted. If you haven’t donated to Tom’s campaign you should, if only to be able to say, 10 or 15 years from now when Tom is one of country’s top conservative leaders, that you contributed to his first campaign.
In the Senate:
Josh Mandel is going toe to toe with far-left incumbent Sherrod Brown in what may be the country’s most-watched Senate race. The latest polling has the race tied. Josh is a young, committed conservative who deserves your support. If you haven’t already contributed to his campaign, you should.
Rick Berg is leading his Democratic opponent, Heidi Heitkamp, in the race to succeed retiring Democrat Kent Conrad. The race is probably closer than it deserves to be, but this looks like a pickup for the GOP.
Denny Rehberg has been locked in a tight struggle with incumbent Democrat Jon Tester, and the Democrats have tried every dirty trick in the book, including propping up a third-party candidate whom the Democrats are supporting through a false flag operation called “the Montana Hunters and Anglers Leadership Fund.” Thankfully, the latest polling shows Rehberg leading by four points in a state that Mitt Romney will carry easily.
All of these candidates deserve your support, and it isn’t too late to kick in a few bucks by going to the “Support” buttons on the “Pick Six” graphic embedded in our right sidebar.
