Hollis out but can Maness really benefit in Louisiana US Senate Race?
 

hollisLaPolitics.com has reported this morning that Paul Hollis will no longer run for the U.S. Senate spot  currently held by Democrat Mary Landrieu.  “After prayer and thoughtful consideration, I have decided to withdraw from the U.S. Senate race in Louisiana. I am thankful for the outpouring of support from voters throughout the state and truly appreciate the tireless efforts of our campaign’s staff and volunteers.

 “While my run for the U.S. Senate has come to an end, my desire to advance the conservative agenda is stronger than ever.  In the weeks and months ahead, I will continue to fight for candidates and causes that will move Louisiana and America forward.  Together, we can end Mary Landrieu’s liberal reign in Washington and ensure a brighter future for generations to come.”

His letter does not specify who that candidate might be.  Tea Party candidate Col. Rob Maness is competing against mainstream contender Republican Bill Cassidy.

Will Hollis’s departure make any difference in the U.S. Senate race, as now drawn?

In a recent Rasmussen poll, “Five percent (5%) like some other candidate in the race, while six percent (6%) are undecided.”

Presumably, should Maness pick up Hollis’s percent and the rest of the undecided numbers, he would be only at 11% compared to 46% and 43% respectively for Democrat Mary Landrieu and Cassidy.

Some Maness supporters point to a recent Sarah Palin commercial, who is popular among the Tea Party members, backing the Colonel as being a sign of a positive movement upward.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
