NEW ORLEANS -- For the past three days at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference here, I've been shadowing Ray McKinney, a Republican candidate for Congress in Georgia's 12th District. Just past midnight, the campaign staff exchanged high fives when they saw an online story from Larry Peterson of the Savannah Morning News:
Conservatives aim to turn state a deeper shade of red.
Two Republican challengers to blue-dog Democrat Rep. Larry Kissell are certain that Kissell's opposition to Obamacare won't be enough to save him.
Democratic moderates fear only their conservative constituents.
The GOP health bill -- which House Democrats rejected -- would mean lower costs, more coverage, no taxes, and no deficits.
The Democratic Party got more than it bargained for when it empowered its pro-lifers.
Democrats from conservative districts face a series of uncomfortable votes.
The conservative Democrat-Waxman deal should be taken very seriously.
Whether the GOP wants it or not.
