Awesome idea by STFUConservatives to take submissions from folks who voted today. Great work, STFU.

Indiana Sen. Richard Lugar optimistic despite Tea Party challenge: ”We’ve got a vigorous campaign. I believe in fact that we’re going to win the campaign,” he said this morning about the primary challenge he’s facing Tuesday. Lugar, an 80-year-old moderate Republican who has served six terms, is behind opponent Richard Mourdock by ten points according to some polls, and is barred from running as an independent in the general election by state law. So if he loses tonight, that’s it. Think he’ll win? (photo by James Brosher/AP)

That was fast: New Hampshire primary already called for Romney

More info as we get it. Obviously, the real story here is who gets second and third, honestly.

UPDATE: The L.A. Times reports that Romney’s victory is the first time a non-sitting Republican presidential candidate won both New Hampshire and Iowa. Really, the race should be more interesting in South Carolina, where it probably won’t get called so quickly.

Dear Union Leader: You’re a newspaper. Like the Des Moines Register, no matter how much the Obama campaign pays, you know this crosses a line.

Bachmann pins all her hopes on an unregistered voter.

When the divine is the one who tells you to run, this sort of thing makes sense.

She better hope that Jesus likes corn and has nowhere better to be on Tuesday.

Why are some of the GOP candidates threatening to boycott Nevada?

  • what A number of GOP candidates — including Michele Bachmann, Jon Huntsman, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich — have threatened to boycott the Nevada primary. Jon Huntsman went a step further, promising to boycott Tuesday’s Nevada-based debate.
  • why Nevada is attempting to gain influence on the primaries by pushing their primary up to mid-January, meaning New Hampshire would have to hold theirs in December to ensure that theirs is still the first one. In effect, it gives weaker candidates less time. source

2012 Election: Will T-Paw finally put his name in the hat?

  • YES Tim Pawlenty is officially running for President source

» The least surprising item of the day: It’s not as if anybody really doubted that Tim Pawlenty would be running for President, as he’s made that rather abundantly obvious the last year or so (the title of his recent book, Courage To Stand, basically says all you need to know about his ambitions). However, the timing of this official announcement works to Pawlenty’s favor — it comes quickly after the GOP was set reeling by Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels’ decision not to run. Suddenly facing down a field with virtually no electable candidates, save the primary-vulnerable Mitt Romney, Pawlenty is in a prime place to gain ground, if he can get a little buzz going. A tip from us to T-Paw, though — you don’t have a southern accent, and it’s weird to try to pretend otherwise.
