How Do You Turn a Blue State Like Oregon Purple?

nationalreview.com — From the Monday edition of the Morning Jolt: How Do You Turn a Blue State Like Oregon Purple? If you want to talk about an overlooked all-time woulda-coulda-shoulda race that haunts the Republicans, let's take a look at Oregon's gubernatorial election in 2010.

Blue Oregon... Strongly Opposed to Driver's Licenses for Illegals!

nationalreview.com — Something to keep in mind for future immigration debates: Oregon - deep blue, heavily-Democrat, crunchy, progressive, let-me-pour-you-another-organic-quinoa-microbrew Oregon - appears set to decisively reject a proposal to provide driver's permits to individuals who cannot prove legal residence in the state. The driver cards would be issued by the Driver and Motor Vehicle Services Division.

A Partisan Staffer With No Medical Background Is the New 'Ebola Czar'

nationalreview.com — Meet the Obama administration's new "Ebola Czar.": A former chief of staff to Vice President Joe Biden and also to then-Vice President Al Gore, Klain is currently President of Case Holdings and General Counsel of Revolution, an investment group. He has clerked for the U.S.

Oregon and Our Future of 'Set It And Forget It' Leftism

nationalreview.com — From the last Morning Jolt of the week: Oregon: Our Progressive Future of Corrupt Government and Oblivious Voters Greetings from Portland, Oregon - the state with the most egregiously failing Obamacare exchange in the country, now set to reelect the governor whose administration oversaw that disaster and wasted all that money.

Ed Gillespie Will Run Plenty of Ads in the Next Two and Half Weeks

nationalreview.com — We're at the time of year where every decision is interpreted as a significant indicator of what will happen on Election Night. But Politico should have known better than to run a story with the screaming headline, GILLESPIE OFF THE AIR THIS WEEK, only to note...

Republicans Doing Just Fine in Early Vote in N.C., Iowa, Florida

nationalreview.com — Remember when the rest of the country laughed at Floridians for not being able to correctly fill out a ballot? A lot of Floridians - particularly Republicans - have gotten the early voting part down: More than 683,000 absentee ballots were cast as of Thursday morning, and Republicans continue to hold a solid lead over Democrats in returns, 48-35 percent.

Is 2014 Going to Be a 'Wave' Election? Sort Of.

nationalreview.com — The past week has seen indisputably good news for Republican Senate candidates in Colorado and Iowa... and then some somewhat ominous news in Georgia, and perhaps Kansas and South Dakota. Periodically, I'll hear someone say, "if Republicans are winning in Iowa and Colorado, they'll win in Georgia and Kansas." Eh...

When the Obama Administration Has Lost Jay Carney...

nationalreview.com — Wow. Please, Democrats, keep insisting that a ban on nonessential travel from the three most Ebola-stricken countries is a bad idea. Because you won't believe who is urging a change in policy: Former White House press secretary Jay Carney suggested Thursday that the White House take "substantive actions" in fighting Ebola, including putting in place flight restrictions.

Heck of a Week for Cory Gardner So Far

nationalreview.com — Remember when it wasn't clear that Cory Gardner was the favorite in the Colorado Senate race? Back on... Tuesday? This morning, "Gardner took 47 percent and Udall 41 percent in the Quinnipiac University survey of likely voters." Eight of the past nine polls in Colorado show Gardner ahead.

The CDC Needs an Ebola Plan That Accounts for Human Errors.

nationalreview.com — From the Thursday Morning Jolt: The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself. Well, That and Ebola. Fear is not always a bad thing*. Fear can be useful. Fear is an indicator that we care about something and fear losing something. Fear can be a powerful motivator to action.
