We spent an hour earlier today chatting online about life, the universe and everything with Fixistas from around the country.
Two primary races set for May 18 will tell us a lot about the political power centers in each party.
Days after former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin unveiled her 2010 target list, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney ramped up his own involvement in the midterms -- announcing six endorsements in Missouri.
When the House and Senate approved the Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) in the fall of 2008, it was widely cast by leaders of both parties as a necessary step to keep the economy from tumbling into disaster. Fast forward 18 months, however, and that TARP vote, which passed the Senate 74-25 and the House 263-171, has become a political millstone for a handful of House and Senate Republicans who voted for it.
Ask Dan Coats, why he decided to come out of political retirement to seek the Indiana Senate seat he vacated in 1998 and he offers just two words: Barack Obama.
A new Quinnipiac national poll provides us a detailed look into the composition of the nascent Tea Party movement. The conclusion? It looks a lot like the Republican party.
In what amounted to a two-horse race in the Fix's "choose your own House race" contest, Colorado's 4th took 42 percent to 34 percent for Virginia's 5th. None of the other races managed double digits.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney threw his endorsement behind Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson today, calling him the "real conservative" in his Senate primary fight with ophthalmologist Rand Paul.
Roughly 72 hours have passed since the House narrowly passed President Barack Obama's health care plan and it's been less than a day since he signed the legislation into law. Despite brevity of that time frame, both parties are already claiming momentum (and victory) -- plucking a poll here or a poll there to prove their point.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin named 20 Democratic-held seats as top targets for her grassroots followers in a Facebook post late Tuesday night.
A few weeks back, we wrote that Organizing for America -- the operation built in the wake of the 2008 campaign to push President Obama's legislative agenda -- faced a serious test of its efficacy as it pushed hard for passage of the health care bill.
In the run-up to Sunday night's House passage of President Barack Obama's health care bill, the chief executive repeatedly urged Members of Congress to focus on the long term legacy of the vote not the short term politics.
Making clear that the recently-passed health care bill will be a major point of debate in the 2012 presidential race, Republicans eyeing a run for the top spot sought to one-up one another with their condemnations of the bill.
It's time again for Fixistas to weigh in on the next House race to which we should devote a full post.
The House health care vote is in the books and the after-action analysis has begun.
The health care debate now over, the debate over what it will mean politically in both the 2010 midterms and the 2012 presidential fight can now begin in earnest.
Just minutes before 11 pm on the East Coast, the Democratic-controlled House passed the Senate health care bill by a 219 to 212 vote margin.
