The Six Hottest Senate Races For Conservatives

As the first part of GOP primary election season wraps conservatives have reason to be optimistic about the chances of adding to our numbers in Mitch McConnell’s broken U.S. Senate.

At a major meeting of conservative leaders yesterday, some of the movement’s best political minds handicapped the Senate races with us, and this is where we see the hottest conservative campaigns as of GOP Senate Racestoday.

West Virginia:

Conservative West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey emerged victorious in the hard-fought GOP primary and immediately jumped to a lead over incumbent Democrat Joe Manchin in the polls. Polls this far out from Election Day normally mean little, but when the incumbent is behind the challenger it is a good indication that West Virginia’s voters, who gave President Trump a 48 point advantage in the 2016 election have caught on to the fact that Manchin is a hypocrite, not a conservative.

Tennessee:

Conservative Representative Marsha Blackburn has the nomination to succeed retiring establishment Republican Senator Bob Corker. Blackburn, an excellent speaker and TV presence, is one of the House’s strongest voices on the pro-life agenda. Even better, when Corker started making noise about maybe un-retiring, Rep. Blackburn said “bring it on” facing down the establishment interests who would have liked to keep Corker, the author of Obama’s traitorous nuclear weapons deal with Iran, in charge of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.

Montana:

Conservatives are backing Matt Rosendale to take on incumbent Democratic Senator John Tester in the Gem State’s GOP primary.  Rosendale has already proven himself in a statewide race and has the experience to take on incumbent Democrat Tester. As State Auditor, Rosendale cut operating costs by 23 per cent and refused a pay increase; he is right on life, the Second Amendment, immigration and the Trump pro-growth economic agenda. President Trump is still seething over the false claims Tester made that derailed Admiral Ronnie Jackson’s nomination to head the Veterans Administration. Should Rosendale win the primary as expected, look for the President to weigh-in heavily against Tester.

Indiana:

Outsider conservative businessman Mike Braun won a convincing victory in Indiana’s three-way GOP primary, taking out two incumbent Republican Congressmen. President Trump has already been to Indiana to endorse Braun and incumbent Democrat Joe Donnelly is already feeling the heat. Look for Braun to hold Donnelly’s feet to the fire for being part of the DC Swamp and a hypocrite on many issues important to Indiana conservatives the same way he attacked Representatives Messer and Rokita during the GOP primary.

Missouri:

Missouri’s conservative Attorney General Josh Hawley is the conservative consensus candidate to take on Missouri’s incumbent Democratic Senator, the detestable Claire McCaskill. President Trump bested Hillary Clinton by 19 points in Missouri and McCaskill was one of Clinton’s most visible surrogates. Hawley, like West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, has been a leader in the fight against Obama-era regulations. Hawley is right on the pro-life agenda, the Second Amendment, immigration and the Trump pro-growth economic agenda.

Texas:

Many readers may wonder why we included principled limited government constitutional conservative rock star Ted Cruz in our list of “hot” races. President Trump won Texas by 9 points and Cruz has a 96 percent conservative rating, which should put him in good stead in the conservative Lone Star state. Cruz also polled almost twice as many votes as all the Democratic senate candidate combined in the Texas primary. Cruz is in the “hot” race category because his opponent, incumbent Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke raked in almost $7 million in the first three months of 2018 thanks to tons of Hollywood and East Coast liberal donors. Other than President Trump, there's no Republican who Democrats hate more than Senator Cruz, and the liberal media is already building O’Rourke into a “Kennedyesque” figure who can take out the Senate’s most visible limited government constitutional conservative.

Monday we will handicap another group of GOP Senate candidates and races to round out what we see as the top two tiers of GOP pick-up prospects.

Missouri Senate Race

Guys, don't trust Josh Hawley. I'm a local and have followed Hawley for a while now. He has painted himself as a staunch conservative but the reality is he is an Establishment man, and will wind up damaging the Conservative Movement if given half a chance. He was an editor at the Yale Law Review, for example, which does not bode well for him.

In point of fact, most polls show Hawley behind McCaskill, and that is because Hawley promised NOT to run for higher office when he ran for Mo. AG and he immediately broke that promise. He also threw Eric Greitens under the bus. See my article on the matter here.
https://www.americanthinker.com/.../the_great_greitens_railroading.html

Hawley clerked for Michael McConnell, the man who brought Barack Obama to Chicago law and was bitterly critical of the SCOTUS ruling in the Bush/Gore election case. Hawley also clerked for John "Obamacare" Roberts.

Hawley attended Stanford and Yale Law, making him a pure Establishment type.

He not only demanded Greitens - a Trump like outsider who has done a lot of good for the state, including promoting Right to Work and thus incurring the wrath of the unions much like Wisconsin's Scott Walker - resign from office before the facts were in but he also referred some criminal changes to the St. Louis Prosecuting Attorney's office, something guaranteed to damage the state GOP and especially the governor. He did that to promote his campaign, figuring it would varnish his claims of being a tough, independent prosecutor and possibly winning some votes from Democrats.

Hawley is better than McCaskill, but he will be a reliable vote for Mitch McConnell and the Swamp. There are others running in the GOP primaries; Austin Peterson, Ken Patterson, Kristi Nichols, etc. I will support them over Hawley, who I think has shown himself to be untrustworthy.

Building on our Congressional Majorities

Recent articles and TV media warn of a potential "Blue Wave" and the traditional losses that the party in power experiences in the mid-term elections. However, the Republican Party is now in the Trump Era, and should take advantage of, and play up, the many successes he has accomplished to combat the knee-jerk negative spin of the fake news MSM. The Party should designate skilled apologists to go on the fake media shows to counter the BS leftist spin, and to calmly, logically explain the major positives of the President's achievements and objectives, in language that the least educated viewer can understand. Reasoned arguments can generally triumph over the crazed emotion-filled tirades of the Leftist "propaganda ministers", if they are repeated often enough to sink in.

Perhaps more importantly, the Conservative Right should hang their hat on the finite key issues shared by the majority of the thinking electorate - immigration control - secure borders - Second Amendment rights - Pro-Life - lower taxes - less regulations on businesses - reining in the bloated WDC federal bureaucracy - disclosing the tragic history of Democratic-controlled municipalities. The clueless Left have no real issues that they can articulate without screaming hysterically.

Finally, in addition to targeting vulnerable Democratic representatives and senators for defeat as is done above, reliable conservatives should target traitorous RINOS for "removal" who are not willing to adhere to the Administration's playbook-an important part of "draining the swamp". That, in addition to a sweeping purge of the "Obama holdovers" in the intelligence agencies, IRS, DOJ, federal bureaucracy and judiciary can roll back much of the damage of the Obama Legacy Years and establish a Conservative Dynasty for decades to come. - Tim Hoffmann
