How will you vote in the upcoming Congressional election?
CQ Politics | Election 2010
In Illinois, I'd like to see a Republican in Obama's former seat (now occupied by Roland Burris).
Looks like Kirk is the man.
Same way I always vote. Though third and fourth and fifth party candidates will be getting much more consideration than usual.
partisan hack here. downloading my talking points from FNC now. Can't wait to get my orders of the day from Rush and Sean.
For the house I will vote for Rep Steve Buyer who I share political philosophy with, and is the incumbent. If there were a nominee from the other party who claimed the same philosophy I would not trust that person's voting any differently than their past record, and being from the other party they could not match Buyer's voting record.
For the Senate, we will not have an incumbent, since Senator Bayh will be retiring, therefore the primary will be important. I expect on the side of my own party (R) former Senator Coats and former Representative John Hostettler will contest for the nomination. Hostettler was our district's rep post 1994 until he was less than prudent in his personal behavior (carried a pistol on his person on a commercial flight), and was beaten by Brad Ellsworth, the D in the race, in the next election. Hostettler showed arrogance, so his defeat was not a surprise.
Ellsworth will probably be the D's nominee for Bayh's old Senate seat, but his vote FOR the current Health-care Bill will most likely determine the outcome for his senate bid.
Before Coats retired from the US Senate, not seeking re-election in 1996, his statements on policy and votes were in accordance with my own political philosophy, so his record informs my vote, and party affiliation here will coincide with philosophy.
It will be an interesting year here in the Hoosier state.
I will consider my options from among those who did not vote for ObamaCare. I will not vote for anyone who votes for it.
that rules out dems, no?
the incumbants in my state are boyd and that idiot in central fl grayson. it's not a problem voting against those assholes.
I would move to FL just to be able to vote Grayson out of office.
But then I couldn't move to Indiana to vote against that moron Baron Hill. Of course if I became a Democrat I could.
I am in a district that routinely votes 75% for the democrat, so my consistent vote against him matters not one whit.
But he will still get that one vote for the write in, or the anybody else but this year, as he does every other year.
