Where does Udall get his money?

Where does Udall get his money?

“So, the Koch brothers are spending millions for Cory Gardner….”  So says a pro-Udall campaign ad.  But look where Udall is getting his money: ActBlue and billionaire Tom Steyer. Remember back on February 19 when Udall, along with Harry Reid, Al Gore and five other Democrat senators went to Steyer’s home in San Francisco to get $400,000 that night and a promise of $100 million more to come?  All he asked was that they block the Keystone pipeline; and they did.

Comprehensive Immigration Reform

Comprehensive Immigration Reform

“Nine out of the 10 poorest states are Red

“Nine out of the 10 poorest states are Red states

Pro-Democrat group says 9 of the 10 poorest states are Republican The partisan blogosphere is filled with arguments over whether liberal or conservative policies are better for states. No matter what is proposed -- cutting the sales tax, raising the minimum wage, etc. -- someone can always come up with a state to cite as an example of why it's a good (or bad) idea. But we were struck by this claim posted by the pro-Democrat group Occupy Democrats on Facebook: "If Republican ... Full Story
