Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) announced today that she will not seek a 5th term serving Minnesota’s 6th Congressional District in 2014.
Here’s some random observations on the caucus season which has just concluded and we’ve either enjoyed or endured, depending upon your view: Much has already been said about the Kent Sorenson switcharoo, but one thing I haven’t heard as yet is discussion on the implications of the flap upon the Christian faith. Sorenson, Michele Bachmann, […]
Having read Craig Robinson’s piece on Sarah Palin’s supposed inability to run a national campaign based off the what transpired on Wednesday regarding her upcoming speech on Saturday has left me wondering. If it rains tomorrow, like forecasters predict it will, I suppose Robinson think that’s her fault as well? She’s just not ready for […]
I wasn’t quite ready to bet on it back in April, but it seems it seems like former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is getting ready for a 2012 run. Here are a few reasons why I feel that way. Recent hires to help with travel and scheduling, along with a foreign policy advisor. Not to […]
If former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee was going to run for President in 2012 isn’t it strange that he is launching a new company just as the primary race is starting up? Yet it was announced today that he is launching a new educational company, Learn Our History, LLC. A press release sent out said […]
Sarah Palin has been making some news and I was too busy with stuff happening in Iowa to cover it, but I do want to give it some attention now. There is movement on the Palin front. Here are some things that make me go hmmmm…. 1. A new and improved SarahPAC website. It is […]
I know, I know people will say… he hasn’t made a decision yet. He told me as much a couple of weeks ago. I know also he seems to be listening to Bob Vander Plaats’ horrible advice to wait it out after the Ames Straw Poll. That is awfully late to be getting into Iowa […]
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) took a big step in establishing herself as a serious contender in the 2012 Presidential race should she run. She reported today that in the first quarter of 2011 she raised more than $2 Million – $1.7 Million for her congressional re-election campaign and an additional $500,000 for Michele PAC. Presidential […]
Jonathan Martin had a post up at POLITICO today that indicated that Governor Haley Barbour (R-MS) and Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR) may or may not have met together. Ok, this is Jonathan Martin so we have to take the story somewhat with a grain of salt since again none of the “aides” interviewed had names…. […]
Below is a side by side contrast between the two prospective 2012 presidential candidates from Minnesota: Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and former Governor Tim Pawlenty (R-MN) on education. There is a similarity in their positions on parental choice in education, but with their positions regarding federal involvement in education… not so much. Michele Bachmann Is […]
I spoke with former Governor Mike Huckabee (R-AR) Thursday on behalf of KTIA Radio (99.3 FM/1260 AM) before the Iowa Pastors Renewal Project Conference (which will be webcast today). This is my second time speaking with him in person, and I’ve enjoyed both experiences as he was incredibly friendly and easy going. He was not […]
Yesterday I had the chance to catch up with Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) at the WHO Radio studios in Des Moines as she finished up an interview there with Jan Mickelson. Right before she and I spent a few minutes together she did a phone interview with Jon Scott on Fox News and recorded a […]
Three prospective 2012 presidential candidates were in Des Moines yesterday and they were courting Iowa’s homeschoolers: Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX) were able to speak to a group of 800 homeschooling parents and students at an event hosted by the Network of Iowa Christian Home Educators. […]
The Republican Party of Iowa announced today that Donald Trump will headline their annual Lincoln Dinner on Friday, June 10th in Des Moines. They said it will be his first visit to Iowa this caucus season. Party Chairman Matt Strawn noted how Trump at CPAC caught the eye of many political observers nationally and here […]
The Sioux City Journal ran an AP article citing the growing evangelical clout that will shape this upcoming caucus. I’m not sure I would call it growing… I think better organized would be a better way to describe what is going on in evangelical circles. I think it has always ben present, but it hasn’t […]
