EXCLUSIVE: Likely Franken opponent Mike McFadden has a U.S. Senate campaign logo
On May 3, Politico reported that wealthy executive Mike McFadden was “considering a statewide campaign” for U.S. Senate.
McFadden “will formally announce plans next week to run for the US Senate as a Republican challenger to Al Franken in November 2014,” according to the April 30 inquiry, which a source shared with POLITICO.
Looking at the source code shows that the site will be built on WordPress. Typing in the default WordPress log-in address brings us to a log-in page with a fancy campaign logo in burnt orange and light blue.
This the most terrifying thing I’ve ever seen.
Minnesota’s licensed child-care providers don’t just oppose forced child-care unionization, they absolutely, positively, no-doubt-about-it oppose it.
“We thought it would be beneficial to have a survey of licensed providers showing the reality of where they’re standing on this issue,” said Vicki Shofner, a MLFCCA representative. “This issue is very, very personal for these family providers on both sides. They feel very strongly about it.”
The Times of Saint Cloud and New York take shots at Michele Bachmann
On Thursday, the Saint Cloud Times complained that two events with Rep. Michele Bachmann left her constituents wondering:
Two events — a national speech Saturday and a St. Paul lobbying appearance Monday — not only reflect how there is no clear answer to that question, but highlight why district voters will remain frustrated if all they want is a hardworking, level-headed House member.
The Saturday speech was vintage Bachmann — heavy on political red meat and light on accuracy. Monday’s lobbying effort for expanding Interstate 94 from Rogers to St. Cloud was about bipartisan service to the western end of the district — a rare focus for her since elected.
On Friday, New York Times opinionist Upchuck N. Blow – er – Charles M. Blow blamed the GOP’s woes squarely on people like Bachmann:
People like Bachmann represent everything that is wrong with the Republican Party. She and her colleagues are hyperbolic, reactionary, ill-informed and ill-intentioned, and they have become synonymous with the Republican brand. We don’t need all politicians to be Mensa-worthy, but we do expect them to be cogent and competent.
Even thought the election results are often close, Minnesota’s sixth district seems to want their principled firebrand. But it would be nice for her to get her facts straight first.
