Richard Mourdock's Abortion Comments and Joe Donnelly's Sophistry

This week, I pulled double duty on WIBC.  First I made my regular pre-presidential debate visit.  The Presidential debate came and went.

It's Not Just One Poll, It's a Trend for Mitt Romney **Update – Romney Leads in FL. & VA.**

Liberals in America are in full on freak out mode after President Obama’s dismal performance last week in the first presidential debate.  Now, I’ll be the first to admit that one debate, especially the first debate, does not make an election.  However, Mitt Romney has successfully changed the narrative after one debate and not just […]

Discussing the Presidential Debate Formats on WIBC

Yesterday afternoon my colleague Jennifer Wagner and I appeared on WIBC (yes, again) this time discussing the different formats of the presidential debates and if there is a certain format that benefits either President Obama or Governor Romney.  We even have a bit of fun with Ed Wenck of Indy’s Afternoon News when he asked […]

Lugar’s loss marked the […]

Interview with 6th Congressional District Candidate Don Bates Jr.

There are very few people who can take up the mantle of leadership in 6th District that is being vacated by Mike Pence after he decided to run for Governor.  The only person who can who is currently running in the 6th District is Don Bates, Jr.  Don is not a career politician.  He has […]

Interview with State Senate District 35 Candidate Daniel Kinnamon

Daniel Kinnamon isn’t a newcomer to Indiana politics, but he may be a new name to a lot of you.  Daniel is currently the state chair of the Indiana Federation of Young Republicans, but is running against the incumbent Republican.  At a time when many voters are dissatisfied with elected leaders who have “been around […]
