Those Still Uncalled 2014 Races

krpoliticaljunkie.com — We left you last week with a handful of races that hadn't been called. Here's the latest update: CALLED: STILL TO BE CALLED: Ariz. 02: Republican challenger Martha McSally apparently defeated Rep. Ron Barber (D) by 161 votes out of more than 219,000 cast.

Ken Rudin's Political Junkie

krpoliticaljunkie.com — The elections are over. Winners have been congratulated, losers have been consoled. It's time to relax. WRONG!! There are all these campaign buttons that need identifying. Every so often we come across campaign buttons for candidates we've never heard of. How do we identify who they are?

Ken Rudin's Political Junkie

krpoliticaljunkie.com — As America prepares for the lame duck session of Congress, I thought I would do my part with a lame ScuttleButton puzzle. Seems fair to me. How to Play ScuttleButton, as you may know, is that weekly waste-of-time exercise where we post a vertical sequence of campaign buttons.

The Lessons Of 2014

krpoliticaljunkie.com — The votes are still being counted in a handful of races around the country, the winners are still basking in their victories, the losers are trying to figure out what went wrong. Of course, that hasn't stopped those from already obsessing over 2016. We'll have plenty of time to prepare for those elections, both presidential and congressional.

Top 30 House Races - Where Incumbent Party Could Change

krpoliticaljunkie.com — The Senate may turn. The House, probably not. If anything, Republicans are expected to expand on their current 234-201 advantage (including vacancies). But with great fluctuation in many of the races, there is no shortage of seats that may change parties on Tuesday.

Ken Rudin's Political Junkie

krpoliticaljunkie.com — With every trick there is always a treat. At least today. Hopefully, you saw our Halloween "Button of the Day" on Instagram . Now it's time to solve this week's ScuttleButton puzzle. How to Play ScuttleButton, as you may know, is that weekly waste-of-time exercise where we post a vertical sequence of campaign buttons.

History About To Be Made In Pennsylvania

krpoliticaljunkie.com — You all know by now - because you've been hearing it over and over - that the last time a Republican lost a Senate race in Kansas was 1932. The last time a Democrat was beaten in a West Virginia Senate campaign was 1956.

Ken Rudin's Political Junkie

krpoliticaljunkie.com — Yes, there's a World Series going on, and it's pretty exciting. But not nearly as exciting as solving this week's ScuttleButton puzzle. How to Play ScuttleButton, as you may know, is that weekly waste-of-time exercise where we post a vertical sequence of campaign buttons.

Most Eyes On Florida & Wisconsin Among 36 Governor Races

krpoliticaljunkie.com — With most attention this year squarely on which party will control the Senate, it is understandable that the 36 states holding gubernatorial elections are taking a back seat. But between the recent "fangate" flap in Florida and the presidential hopes of Wisconsin's Scott Walker - not to mention that two of the last three presidents came from the ranks of governors - it seems clear that much of the excitement on Nov.

Odds Still Say GOP Takes Senate, But Wild Cards Remain

krpoliticaljunkie.com — If you're a partisan - a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat or Republican - you're probably a nervous wreck these days. With just over two weeks to go and with all the twists and turns and surprises, the battle for the Senate is nothing short of nail-biting-to-the-bone, if not heart-stopping.
