The close GOP primary in PA
“This is all about winning elections to stop the radical left maniacs from destroying our country,” Trump said in a statement Saturday.

Pennsylvania's primary Senate election is being held today. It has turned out to be a tight race between three candidates:

Dr Mehmet Oz.  Endorsed by Donald Trump.

Kathy Barnette. Unelectable in a general election.

Recent polls show the three in a three way tie. There is a trojan horse in the race. Kathy Barnette has made some insane, vile comments in her distant past and a photo from Jan 6th shows her walking with a group of Proud Boys.  Oddly enough it is Fox News that is doing all the screeching about her beliefs. The leftist msm has been noticeably silent.

Anyone care to guess why?

Answer: If the left can get Barnette to win the nomination, they will then bombard her with her past statements and we'll see a lot more of that Jan 6th photo.

To me, by far the most interesting thing about these primaries is the fact that almost all of the candidates are trying to prove they are more MAGA and subservient to Trump than the others. 

Yet for some odd reason we have apologists claiming that Trump is no longer a thing and he has disappeared from the scene. Such a claim would be funny if it wasnt so stupid. 

By taking this course the GOP will likely lose both the senate seat and the governorship in a few months.

Wait until the Georgia Governor's primary. That is where Donald Trump faces a huge defeat.

I don't know what you mean by "a thing." He is a bit of a king-maker and could be the GOP's elder statesman.

I'm ready to take all wagers.

The way the Senate races shape up this time around would ordinarily favor democrats. However, that radical ideology which was administered for almost 2 years has sealed the democrats fate. They are cooked.

They never fail to slander an opponent, most notable was the Alabama Senate race where the Washington Post withheld damaging info on the Republican until he won the primary and only then did they wrap it around him. That produced a deceit-filled victory for Doug Jones. 


Oz will not hold up under a harsh campaign. 

It will be Oz against the far left policies of Joe Biden. I don't see how he can lose.


The Dems will be thrilled if he is the nominee. 

They have few happy moments coming in the next 2 years.

I'm going to lose a lot of respect for the people of Pennsylvania if they elect this piece of shit

Doug Mastriano, a central figure in former President Donald J. Trump’s efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election in Pennsylvania, won the state’s Republican primary for governor on Tuesday, making the general election a referendum on democracy in the place where American representative government was born.

The Associated Press declared Mr. Mastriano, a retired Army colonel and two-term state senator, the winner over a crowded field of Republican candidates. In the campaign’s final days, his opponents mounted an unsuccessful last-ditch effort to consolidate support around a rival , former Representative Lou Barletta.

In his short time in public office, Mr. Mastriano, 58, has emerged as Pennsylvania’s leading far-right figure.

He funded buses to shuttle supporters to the rally on Jan. 6, 2021, that preceded the attack on the Capitol. During his run for governor, he has barred the news media from attending his campaign events and has appeared with proponents of the QAnon conspiracy theory.

Doug Mastriano is Pennsylvania Republicans’ Choice for Governor - The New York Times (nytimes.com)

I dont think they will.

Mastriano wants to give out all voter's private information to a third party company to do an "audit" of the 2020 election, including, name, dob, ssn, driver's license numbers, addresses, phone numbers, etc.  People are not happy about that.

Oz has never lived in Pennsylvania and used his in-laws' address as his address to vote in Pennsylvania and to get on the ballot.  People are not happy that he's not from here.  

The Pennsylvania general election will be telling so see if Trump actually has the support here that he thinks he does with these two.

And it was only then that Trump gave Mastriano his endorsement. Trump could have endorsed either one of them. It looks like Trump waited to make sure he endorsed the winner.

Not by giving our personal information to a third party.  People are rightfully worried about having their identities stolen.  You may want a third party to have every personal detail about you, but most Pennsylvanians do not.

Pennsylvania is a closed primary, so Trump may do well, he may not.  Independents will be the key to the general election.

Ok. Dr. Oz may have lived in Pennsylvania for approximately 8 years (during his college/graduate school) out of his 61 years life leaving 53 years that he lived somewhere else.  If he lived in Pennsylvania for approximately 8 years during his college/graduate school, he has not lived in Pennsylvania for approximately 35+ years and knows nothing about the needs of the people of Pennsylvania.  If he did not live here for the 8 years of college/graduate school, then he has not lived in Pennsylvania for 61 years.   There, does that make you happy, or do you still have something stupid you want to argue about.

Arkansas is currently having an identity crisis much like Oz. Tom Cotton has a residency in Little Rock but spends all of his time in DC. Sarah Huckabee is running for governor but she hasn't lived here since she went to college. I doubt she knows anything about this state. Doesn't matter.

"Georgia has seen record-breaking turnout for early voting despite passing an election security law last year that critics panned as "voter suppression" and President Biden said harkened back to the era of "Jim Crow"

Figures just came out for North Carolina. 150,000 more Republican votes than Democrat. A damned good sign. 

Republican voters turned out in droves to participate in the North Carolina primaries and overtook Democratic turnout — even though there are more registered Democratic voters in the state.

Poor bastards couldn't vote from their couches this mid term.

Oprah Shies Away From Endorsing Protege Dr. Oz for PA Senate: 'It's up to the Residents'

BY   JUSTIN KLAWANS   ON 12/28/21 AT 11:05 PM 
Winfrey's comments were published on Tuesday by New York Magazine  reporter Olivia Nuzzi, who was provided with a short statement by Winfrey's representative. Nuzzi had also asked for a sit-down chat with the entertainment mogul, but she was told that Winfrey was not conducting interviews.

"One of the great things about our democracy is that every citizen can decide to run for public office," Winfrey's statement read. "Mehmet Oz has made that decision. And now it's up to the residents of Pennsylvania to decide who will represent them."

As always, you say what you want.  

"I met Dr. Mehmet Oz in 2003—the year he and his wife, Lisa, created a medical series called Second Opinion with Dr. Oz for the Discovery Channel. My friend Gayle was so intrigued by him that she encouraged me to be his first guest. Lucky for me, Gayle isn't just persuasive—she's perceptive. The day of the taping, I immediately recognized what she'd sensed: a cardiac surgeon who cared as much about transforming people's lives as he did about fixing their hearts." Oprah

"The following year, the doctor and I swapped couches when I invited him to be a guest on my show. It would be the first of 62 visits. Viewers came to embrace the Cleveland-born, Harvard- and University of Pennsylvania–educated Dr. Oz as "America's doctor"— Oprah

"he taught me everything I know about the omentum" - Oprah

Orpah had Dr Oz on her show more than 60 times before creating his own show, if that's not an endorsement of him, I don't know what is.

According to Wiki, he is registered to vote (somehow) at his in-laws’ address in Pennsylvania. Apparently, that’s all you need?

I don’t know: it’s a mystery to me why anybody in that state would vote for him for Senate, much less that he could even be eligible to run.

Reject it all you want, but I live here.  I know what's going on.  My county just started reviewing flagged ballots.  More citizens of Pennsylvania are using mail-in ballots than the Commonwealth estimated.  There is no extra money for overtime nor for hiring people to count the ballots.  This is the process the Republican legislature approved, and this is the product of that process and legislation.

It is what it is and the ballots are secure with the election bureaus of the various counties.  This the product of Republication legislation Act 77 which you can read online.  Right now McCormick is going to court to get ballots included in the tally that have been dismissed for defective dates so it's still going to be awhile before the results are known in such a close race, and then there will be recounts so just sit back and enjoy.

It's funny because this is the same issue that the Republicans sued about in 2020 saying that the misdated ballots should not be counted.  I don't remember the outcome because the number of ballots was so small that it wouldn't have impacted the election anyway, so I didn't really follow the case.

I think it's because the race is so close (last I checked it was less than 2,000 votes) that every mail in is needed for him to win (not that I think all of those ballots will be for him because I am sure they aren't).

All I can say is that mail in ballots should be scanned in as they come in so this wouldn't happen.  But, again, Republicans are in control of the legislature here, and they are the ones that need to change it, but they won't because they want mail in voting scrapped altogether.
