SORT BY Relevancy
Across the state of Georgia, every race to the Georgia State House and the Georgia State Senate were being watched intensely. With Republicans controlling the State House and the State Senate, Democrats were trying to gain seats while Republicans were trying to maintain them. Who were the candidates and how did they fair in the big scheme of things? Who won? What were the platforms? What were the ideas to make Georgia better? What is their take on the elections of 2014 and how will it impact the 2015 legislative session? Who will return to the campaign trail in 2016? Let's hear it straight from the candidates themselves!
Tonight is the Liberal Dan Radio election recap. I will be discussing mostly the big elections in the Senate and some Governors races. I will also briefly discuss some of the Louisiana issues that came up.
Who is at fault for the loss? Was this a referendum on Obama's agenda? Were the Democrats too weak spined? Does it make sense that people voted Republicans into office even though Republicans had a lower approval rating than the President? And what will happen now that the Senate is controlled by the GOP?
Those questions and more tonight on Liberal Dan Radio: Talk From The Left, That's Right.

Touting his early warnings of Orange County’s 1994 bankruptcy, former county Supervisor John Moorlach officially declared his candidacy for state Senate .
At stake is Assembly District 37, which extends from Anaheim to Laguna Beach. If no candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two vote getters will face off on May 19.
“Just like Orange County was 20 years ago, our state is on shaky financial ground and it’s time to get our fiscal house in order,” Moorlach said in a prepared statement. “Our economy will thrive when California gets serious about eliminating its wall of debt and huge unfunded liabilities. That must be the Legislature’s No. 1 focus.”

Galloway opposed the 1991 gulf war and was critical of the effect that the subsequint santions had on the people of Iraq. In a 28 March 2003 interview that Tony Blair and George W. Bush had "lied to the British Air Force and Navy, when they said the battle of Iraq would be very quick and easy. They attacked Iraq like wolves. ..." and added, "... the best thing British troops can do is to refuse to obey illegal orders. This incitement was later among the formal reasons for his expulsion from the Labour Party. He called the Labour Government "Tony Blair's lie machine
In May 2005, a US Senate committee report accused Galloway along with former French minister Charles Pasqua of receiving the right to buy oil under the UN's oil-for-food scheme. On arriving in the US, he told Reuters, "I have no expectation of justice from a group of Christian fundamentalist and Zionist activists." Galloway described Coleman as a "pro-war, neocon hawk and the lickspittle of George W. Bush," who, he said, sought vengeance against anyone who did not support the war in Iraq.
John Merlau, State Senate candidate for District 28, discusses how too much regulation is bad for business, bad for Indiana, and bad for residents of Indiana's District 28.
Congress should have more partisanship about ideas and less about the legislative process - but of course, Harry (G)Reid won't; Not that anyone’s paying attention, or believes Jim Geraghty's misplaced optimism, but the thinks GOP House candidates are set for a great cycle; Taking the Senate would give the GOP control of the legislative process, and that would mean very little, given that their first order of business would be to restore full minority party rights; And if even it did, remember who has the veto pen in addition to his pile of Imperial Executive decrees.
