Today’s primaries in NC, IN, WV – what to look for (PLUS: Results links)

Posted by: ST on May 8, 2012 at 6:37 pm

A good round-up via the Washington Post (hat tip: Jessica Wood):

Indiana Republican Sen. Richard Lugar’s likely demise and the gubernatorial recall primary in Wisconsin aren’t the only two races worth watching tonight. There are also some key House, Senate and governor primaries in Indiana, North Carolina and West Virginia.

Two of those states — Indiana and North Carolina — represent relatively rare opportunities for the House Republicans to play some offense this year.

In addition, North Carolina Democrats will pick their gubernatorial nominee in the marquee governor’s race of 2012 (after Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker’s recall election, that is), and West Virginia will hold its governor, Senate and congressional primaries.

Read the whole thing to find out more about Governor and US House primary races in those states.  And for North Carolina, don’t forget that the hotly debated Amendment One has been a big motivator for some to get out and vote as well.

I’ll be on Twitter to discuss election results, and will pop in here if anything significant happens.

    Looks like Mourdock is sending Obama’s favorite Republican Senator into retirement. :d

    In the next few days we can expect the Democrat/media axis to hawk polls claiming that the upcoming race between Mourdock and Donnelly is tied (or Donnelly ahead). Don’t believe it – they tried the same thing in 2010 in Indiana, and Coats won in a cakewalk.

    There is something in the water…

    Michelle Malkin knows what it is.

    It was somewhat telling when Bob Beckel, the dolt factor on Fox News’ “The Five” was singing the blues about Lugar’s looming defeat. Mind you, this is Mondale’s former campaign manager and current Obhammud acolyte. He conveniently overlooked the fact Lugar has not lived in Indiana in 30 years and it was a matter for the Indiana voters to decide, not the commiecrats.

    The pundits in media are not worth listening to in the long run. Lugar needs to go. He’s part of the spending problem and he’s compromised too many times. The voters in his state will make a choice to tell those in the Beltway that it’s time for a change of the guard and this time it really will be a change for the better…better fiscal responsiblity, better representation of people, not some touchy-feely flim-flam!
