More good news from ElectionWatch 2010! In Pennsylvania, veteran senator Arlen Specter (a Democrat) loses his party's nomination for another U.S. Senate term. In Kentucky, Republican candidate Rand Paul, the son of Ron Paul, wins his party's nomination for the Senate by a landslide, defeating establish- ment fav- orite Trey Grayson. In Arkan -sas, the re-nomina- tion of Demo- cratic senator Blanche Lincoln hangs in the balance as state voters there await a runoff election.
The results of these Senate primary elections are the latest in a string of disasters for the Obama administration since late 2009, including the election of Republican governors in New Jersey and Virginia, the election of a Republican senator in Massachusetts and the decisions of several incumbent Democratic senators not to seek re-election in 2010.
As Rand Paul said after his nomination, this is democracy at work. The American people are telling Washington in no uncertain terms that they've had it with abortion, big government, high taxes and a dragging economy. A Republican Revolution is underway!
I don't care if they call me a tea-party activist. I'm excited to see these developments! They are paving the way for the kind of changes our country needs.
