I missed the U.S. House debate last night between Ryan Zinke and John Lewis for Montana’s At-Large House seat (football is much more entertaining). If you want to read about the debate, here is a Lee Newspapers story and an Associated Press story.
The Montanans for Lewis campaign sent a press release last night saying, “Montana’s John Lewis delivered a decisive win tonight championing issues Montanans care about most from Medicare to education, to energy and Montana agriculture jobs.”
I did not receive or see a post-debate press release from the Ryan Zinke campaign.
Last week I wrote about political parties and candidates trying to raise money. I thought they were sending a lot of e-mails, but since there are now only 35 days left until Election Day 2014, they have turned it up a notch or two. I have also taken part in several polls regarding the U.S. Senate and U.S. House races.
As I mentioned last week, I subscribe to receive updates via e-mail from different groups within the Democratic and Republican parties.
Monday, September 29, was a big day! The national Democrats sent me 15 e-mails trying to raise money. On the same day national Republicans sent me nine e-mails about fundraising.
Here are some of the subject lines from their fundraising e-mails. Enjoy.
Fundraising is very, very time-consuming. – Arlen Specter
With just about 44 days until Election Day 2014, the political parties are desperately trying to raise money to help their candidates.
The Republicans have a good chance to take control of the senate, but it will be very close and come down to just a few races – so both sides are trying to raise funds to get their message out. Some people predict the senate will fall into Republican hands after this election and then go back to Democrat control after the 2016 election.
Since I subscribe to receive updates via e-mail from different groups within the Democratic and Republican parties, I thought I would share some of the subject lines from their fundraising e-mails. Enjoy.
Today is National POW/MIA Recognition Day. We will never forget.
If you are a first-time visitor, “Caught My Eye” is posted right here every Friday morning! This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – or maybe both.
Today I write about Right to Work, Daines & Bachmann, November 12, Legal.Answers.com, the best news bloopers, plus we have a winner who is making Montana proud!
“Thursday Numbers” is the weekly column where I take a look at the numbers that are in the news (in descending order) and provide commentary (sometimes spiked with sarcasm) just to make you smile, shake your head, or make you send me nasty e-mails or Tweets.
This week I write about websites, nail polish, Amanda Curtis, Steve Daines, median household income, unemployment, Snallygaster beer festival, Elmo, Thursday Numbers, 1984 music, Sears, Gallup polls, Facebook, rudest drivers., educated towns, poverty rate, Jameis Winston, and much more!
