    Tea Party-backed candidates look for Cantor-style upsets in Senate races this week
    The first test will come Tuesday, when Dr. Milton Wolf tries to end Kansas GOP Sen. Pat Roberts’ 33-year run in Congress.
    Roberts, a three-term senator first elected to the House in 1981, still holds a double-digit lead in the polls, in a race where the candidates’ gaffes and miscues appear as wacky as they are damaging.
    Another Tea Party showdown is expected this coming Thursday in Tennessee where Republican state lawmaker Joe Carr is trying to unseat incumbent GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander.

    After Dave Brat stunned Cantor the GOP fatcats found out:hey,these rubes are serious.When the power of incumbency isn’t enough they have other ways to hold on to their power.Ask Chris McDaniel.
    Roberts and Alexander are probably both pretty safe.

    Meet The Female Thad Cochran: Rea Scharnhorst
    On the heels of Thad Cochran’s shameful campaigning in Mississippi meet Rea Scharnhorst, who attempted to portray her black conservative opponent, Shamed Dogan, as a thug in mailers sent around her prospective district. Scharnhorst is running in Missouri’s 98th district to claim the seat being vacated by her termed-out husband, Dwight Scharnhorst. Scharnhorst is ranked #9 in lobbyist spending.
    Only liberals think elective office is a birthright to be handed down through the family.
