There was activity last week in Georgia. Priscilla reports on that and other races below!
Some good news. All 3 of the Tea Party affiliated incumbent Members of Congress in Georgia lost their race to win the Republican nomination for US Senate and run against Michell Nunn. So her opponent is businessman David Perdue. I believe he is a nephew of KFC founder Frank Perdue. But replacing one of those is St Senator Barry Loudermilk who sounds worse than Tea Party - downright back to the 1920's and 1930's in bigotry. He defeated fmr Member of Congress Bob Barr who was supported by moderates in the Republican Primary there.
Alison Grimes is getting closer in funds raised ($ 11.4M) to Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell ($14M).
Charts are attached.
Don Berwick's campaign invites any interested volunteers to their weekly Newton phone bank which takes place on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at various locations. Please check berwickforgovernor.com/events for details on the location each week or email email@example.com
Newton Steve Grossman Canvass
Saturday, July 19, 2014
11:00 am at the Dains' home
199 Harvard Circle, Newtonville
All are welcome to come and help the Steve Grossman for Governor campaign.
Thank you Priscilla for keeping tabs on the national scene. Her report is below, with links for the data!
Finally, here are the updates for the US Senate, US House and the Special Elections for 2014. Attached, I hope! It took a lot longer than I expected.
*There are runoff elections in Georgia this coming Tuesday, I believe. This is where several Tea Party incumbents have been raising money like crazy, trying to beat each other to the US Senate race against Michele Nunn, and they gave up their congressional seats to run for that.
*Democratic money seems to have gone heavily into Colorado. It looks like the DNC and the DCCC have decided to try to take back most of the House seats plus retain Udall's seat in the Senate there.
* Looks as if the Dems are doing well in Iowa, similar heavy money to what's gone into Colorado.
Overall, I sense a gain in House seats building, plus retaining the US Senate with a close edge. We will probably lose West Virginia and South Dakota, but there are opportunities elsewhere like Georgia and Kentucky. But Alison Grimes in KY needs a lot more money!
The Newton-Needham Chamber of Commerce is holding a forum with candidates for AG Maura Healey and Warren Tolman at Mt. Ida College on Thursday, August 7 at 8:00 am. More details here. Check it out if you're interested - these are two great, qualified Dems!
