Kelly Loeffler isn't the only vile senator in Georgia.

That's Shilpa Poppadom standard. Though it's one thing for Jade Goody to lose her rag and say that, quite another for a US Senator to go there.

This ‘smear’ is almost as ludicrous as Starmer’s donkey field.

They need to play up Hunter being in a mess because he's supposed to have taken his computer into a shop in Delaware and promptly forgotten about it.

Is the purpose of these flimsy smears to woo voters concerned about personal integrity towards Trump? Not much left in the Trump campaign box.

It looks too obviously like a mirror of Trump-Russia, however much truth is in it. Not to mention too obviously saved up as an October surprise. They control the senate. Ron Johnson and pals don't seem to have made much use of it.

High standard campaigning from Alabama from a football coach turned "outsider" politician, who makes one wish for the return of Jeff Sessions. Sadly, this isn't particularly unusual.
In a campaign ad for Alabama Republican Tommy Tuberville, a woman speaks into the camera to attack Democratic Sen. Doug Jones over abortion.

The self-described "proud pro-life mother of two" says she regrets getting an abortion after an unexpected pregnancy at age 18.

"I asked God for forgiveness, and Doug Jones should do the same," she adds. "Jones has voted to spend our tax dollars on late-term abortions. He’s so extreme, he supports abortion up until birth."

Both parts of the attack are wrong.

Here's Turberville showing you he doesn't even get football right.

It’s not states or their governors that are deciding whether college football will be played this fall. It’s the colleges or the athletic conferences that they belong to, each of which spans multiple states. And Tuberville’s figures are off, too.

Texas Senate race latest. Not only did Cornyn keep his concerns about the deficit quiet, he voted the tax bill through that helped cause it.

This happened in Veep when Selena’s trounced on the stump by an ex-football coach. Who soaks up the applause for his cliches about playing the ball and its one strike and out if you’re on my team.

The Governor of Iowa isn't up for re-election this time. But this might not help the Republican Senator for Iowa (Joni Ernst) who is.
