Arkansas senate primary: The union effort to elect Bill Halter

Willie Holmes moved to Arkansas last year to push Sen. Blanche Lincoln (D) on the union membership bill known as card check. He lost, but stayed to sway her vote on health care reform. That did not go his way, either, but Holmes is still here. On Tuesday, he sat with four colleagues in the Plumbers and Steamfitters Local 155 union hall and waited for the votes to roll in. He was hoping that, this time, Lincoln herself would fall.

Pennsylvania Senate race: Specter's memorably odd course in politics

The path to victory for Pennsylvania Democrats has generally come down to one of two options: the Clinton model versus the Rendell model.

Kentucky primary: Democrats hoping for a Paul victory

Rand Paul, the U.S. Senate candidate favored to win the Republican primary here, is offering a series of conservative positions that is one of the most detailed articulations yet of how Tea Party principles would translate into governing.

In Pa., Burns backers unite in their dissatisfaction with Washington

It's a May special election to fill a vacant House seat, but it's hardly been a sleepy affair. Groups have been lavishing money and attention on the race to succeed the late Rep. John Murtha (D), a contest that will be watched closely for what it might say about the November midterms.

Specter's final pitch to Pa. voters: 'Experience and seniority'

It was the dog days of August when Rep. Joe Sestak announced his bid against incumbent Pennsylvania Sen. Arlen Specter, who had the backing of President Obama, Vice President Biden, Gov. Ed Rendell (D-Pa.), the state party organization and almost every key labor union. Many national party leaders believed the backing of such prominent figures would overcome doubts about the more than 28 years Specter spent as a Republican representing Pennsylvania in the Senate. But those party leaders at the so-called "grass tops" have not exactly nailed down support for Specter at the true grass-roots level.
