Please support the Power Line Picks

Love is in the air

Featured image Glenn Reynolds has rescued his interview last year with Utah’s prospective Fourth District Republican congressional candidate Mia Love from the archives.

Matheson retirement clears the way for Mia Love [Updated]

Featured image Rep. Jim Matheson (D-Utah) has announced that he will not run for reelection. This clear the way for Power Line favorite Mia Love to win the seat. She came within a few hundred votes of winning it in 2012. Larry Sabato has already changed his analysis of the seat from “leans Democrat” to “likely Republican.” In my view, however, Love would have been the slight favorite to defeat Matheson. Perhaps »

The House, at least, will be Republican-controlled

Featured image Republican control of the Senate, once a very reasonable prospect, now seems unlikely. The race for the White House, to the extent one relies heavily on current polls, is too close to call. But at least it’s nearly certain that Republicans will retain control of the House. The Washington Post’s “Fix” is basically in-line with other forecasters in projecting that “the 2012 race for the House is likely to be »

Can the Democrats Sink Any Lower?

Featured image Sure they can. Hey, there are two weeks to go until the election! The party of slavery, Jim Crow and corruption is just getting warmed up. Gloria Allred has not yet been heard from, which I guess is another way of saying that the fat lady has not yet sung. And on YouTube, the Democrats’ unofficial brigades have launched the anti-Mormon smears that we have long been expecting. It isn’t »

Mia Love’s speech

Featured image Mia Love just delivered a brief but extremely powerful address to the convention. I wish she had been given more time and a somewhat better slot.
