Retweeted by David M. Drucker.@club4growth #Iowa poll, w/ fav/unfavs, showing @realDonaldTrump behind. Note: poll didn't test @BobbyJindal's 3-point shot on why UCLA thinks it should be a top 25 team:
Retweeted by David M. Drucker@Eeindc @jasoninthehouse Reference also to mess KM got himself into.@conncarroll Only thing I really miss about West Coast is going to games.@DevineDzakpasu @club4growth Basswood. Reputable..@ThePlumLineGS hits nail on head in this tweet. Great stadium. Saw a game there - before the renovation.Pro Tip: When campaigning for congressional caucus leadership, talk to your voters (Members) not the press (much as that's bad for me.)@conncarroll Great player. Watched him in person during his career in both sports whenever Cal played UCLA.@conncarroll That was an easy question. @club4growth That's not enough to diminish poll's veracity. But we'll find out over time..@GOPLeader final: "...and endanger our national security.".@GOPLeader cont.: "..The serious questions Secretary Clinton faces R due entirely 2 her own decision 2 put classified information @ risk.."More @GOPLeader: "...The integrity of Chairman Gowdy, the Committee and the work they've accomplished is beyond reproach...".@GOPLeader statement: "The mission of the Select Committee on Benghazi is to find the truth -- Period..."@gotrump2016 @club4growth Either all polls believable or none R. Unless you can point out a specific, obvious flaw beyond 'my guy's losing'It's time for all the candidates to be on stage together instead of further restricting the stage.

Retweeted by David M. DruckerNot convinced picking the 2A fight is a loser for Ds in the immediate term (a wash at worst in VA/CO/PA/OH), but 2018 would be a bloodbath.

But same 4 many polls showing him ahead. Not sure what's "agenda" abt itNah, it's #JustFlorida IBD/TIPP is the first live-caller poll since July not to show Trump in the lead
Retweeted by David M. Drucker sweep "JebW!"@kinxbitz For you, (almost) anything.@kinxbitz Yeah, not commenting on who would be better, just how likely to shake out.@LPDonovan It's tricky. On one hand, if you own a "problem" harder for opponents to use against. On other, highlights "legacy"@LPDonovan Not effective at winning the "change" argument.@kinxbitz @jasoninthehouse Anything is possible. This race won't be decided on that issue. KM is beatable but no one who can beat is running@kinxbitz @jasoninthehouse It doesn't work that way. The majority won't be strong-armed by a minority.Tough environment for incumbents. is thrilled to host @RepPaulRyan, @FredBarnes & @MortKondracke to talk #JackKemp's legacy on 10/8. RSVP:
Retweeted by David M. Drucker@kinxbitz @jasoninthehouse My thoughts are that he's unlikely to beat KM. He isn't the major figure that could unite all factions over KM.@JebBush and #TheMartian. Interesting blog post by smart FL observer:
Retweeted by David M. Drucker@kinxbitz @jasoninthehouse Who said I don't like him?Well look, if @jasoninthehouse does become speaker, let's hope he doesn't change the cell # he's been giving out to reporters for years.Generally speaking, races for congressional caucus leadership posts aren't won through press. Wrong voting bloc.Chaffetz on if McCarthy should remain in his post if he loses Speakership: Absolutely. He's one of the most loved members of our conference.
