Missouri offers an interesting opportunity for Democrats to pick up another Senate seat. Incumbent Republican Roy Blunt was a clear favorite, but you can see from this ad that Jason Kandor is a formidable candidate.
Blunt has been attacking Kandor on the gun issue, so Kander, a former Army Captain who volunteered to serve in Afghanistan, went right after Blunt on this issue.
This is the kind of things more candidates need to do. Appeal directly to voters in their ads, and take on issues raised in the campaign. Having a clever angle like assembling a gun while blindfolded also helps!
Donald Trump is an easy target, but in her latest speech, Hillary Clinton explains the threat of Donald Trump to the country in devastating fashion. The speech was perfectly written, and she delivered it beautifully.
This speech may result in a turning point in this campaign, as it comes at a time when Trump seems to be even more unhinged with his attacks on a judge for his Mexican heritage and the press focusing on his Trump University fraud.
Also, the press finally seems willing to take on Trump, and this speech gives the press great soundbites to highlight Trump’s buffoonery.
Donald Trump take-downs should be easy since the man is such a buffoon and a disgrace, but this segment from John Oliver is the best so far. He destroys Trump. Even a brain-dead Trump supporter would have to have some doubts after watching this.
