Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest 8/19//14….Rick Scott’s huge ad blitz doesn’t do much for his numbers
A new survey from Republican pollster Cherry Communications, taken on behalf of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, finds GOP Gov. Rick Scott leading Democrat Charlie Crist 41-35, with Libertarian Adrian Wyllie taking four percent. That might sound bad for Crist, but it’s actually disappointing for Scott, who had a 41-38 lead in June.Share on Facebook
Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest 8/18/14…Brian Schatz comes out on top as Hawaii’s long Senate race ends
As for Schatz, he should have no problem wining the general election in November. Schatz will face former Republican state Rep. Cam Cavasso, who has fallen far short in previous bids for the seat in this heavily Democratic state. Schatz will serve out the final two years of the late Sen. Daniel Inouye’s term, and will face the voters again in 2016 if he seeks a full term as expected…..Share on Facebook
It’s good to see that the President finally realizes that he will HAVE to step to this on his own since the Republicans in Congress are simply NOT gonna do anything on this long running festering problem….

Here’s the thing about Rick Perry’s indictment. The case may indeed have plenty of merit. But merit aside, you can indict a ham sandwich if it’s Republican in the most liberal hotbed of Texas: Travis County. The problem for Perry is that a Travis County jury can also find a Republican ham sandwich guilty.Share on Facebook

Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest 8/13/14… Heart of campaign season begins with party committee TV buys
DCCC/NRCC: We’ve finally reached the stretch run of the 2014 campaign season: The DCCC and NRCC have just launched their first real independent expenditure TV ad campaigns targeted toward the November general election. The D-Trip is starting off with two spots going on offense in the Northeast. One is in NY-11 in New York City, throwing the kitchen sink at indicted GOP Rep. Mike Grimm. It features a zillion newscast sound bites accusing him of “fraud” and even mentions the time earlier this year when he threatened to throw a reporter off a balcony.Share on Facebook
On Tuesday, a report from the ZEW economic research institute in Mannheim, Germany, showed German economic sentiment fell this month to the lowest level since December 2012.

Daily Kos Elections Morning Digest 8/12/14… In the reddest of districts, Republican Mia Love struggles again
UT-04: Hrm. A new poll from Dan Jones & Associates and the Cicero Group, conducted on behalf of UtahPolicy.com and, oddly enough, Zions Bank, finds Republican Mia Love with a deeply unimpressive 44-32 lead on Democrat Doug Owens. Love, who biffed what should have been a sure thing against Rep. Jim Matheson in 2012, should presumably have a much easier time of things now that Matheson’s retiring, especially since Mitt Romney carried this district by a 67-30 margin. Indeed, in a hypothetical rematch with Matheson, loves trails 45-39.Share on Facebook
