ICYMI: This one political ad is the perfect expression of Tea Party hypocrisy: washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…

Laugh all you want at this, but a number of Sen races -- AL, AR, CO, IA -- are still very close in the averages: elections.huffingtonpost.com/pollster
From @GlennKesslerWP, a very fair look at the whole fracas around who underestimated ISIS: washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-che…
Odd. Joni Ernst's media allies pushing Braley's screw-up quote about ISIS without admitting Ernst said she agreed with Braley.
With egregious lie about relationship of SNAP to farm bill, Tom Cotton becoming guy I most want to lose on Nov. 4. bit.ly/1xuG8Hr

Re @philipaklein's criticism, it also applies to GOP Senate candidates. They're not actually debating Obamacare: washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…
Key point from @philipaklein: Rs not engaging in actual policy debates in this election: washingtonexaminer.com/republicans-do…
yup RT @jamisonfoser Also, that source didn’t actually say Braley threatened a lawsuit. “litigious situation” could’ve referred to neighbor.
Since we're talking about #chickengate, reminder: Source for "threatened lawsuit" claim has not responded to interview requests.
What @RepTomCotton's wretched ad attacking Food Stamp President says about Tea Party economics: washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…
Let's all talk about what "Ras" says now RT @Rasmussen_Poll: Generic Congressional Ballot: Ds 40%, Rs 39%... tinyurl.com/l4cdqt
@JustinBarasky isn't there a difference between a legal fight over CHICKENS involving the candidate & unpaid work from a cand's husband?

New NBC/WSJ poll shows Ds leading on generic ballot by 47-42, though it's among registered voters: online.wsj.com/public/resourc…
Awesome. New Toilet Paper Polling survey shows my candidate way ahead. Feels better than the averages, so I'll go with the former.
Big Gummint socialism for farmers is fine, but not if it's packaged with spending on food for poor: washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…
The real meaning of Tom Cotton's Food Stamp President ad: Socialism for me, but not for thee: washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…
We were wrong to say Obama admitted "he" got it wrong on ISIS. We've changed headline, but the post is unchanged: washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…
In Iowa, Ernst opposes state wage hike. In AR, here's why Cotton & Hutchinson won't take principled stand against: arktimes.com/ArkansasBlog/a…

Great point from @paulwaldman1: "Obama admitted he got it wrong on ISIS. That's a GOOD thing." washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…
@NateSilver538 @SamWangPhD Haven't the polls simply changed over the last week?

RT @dailykos: Joni Ernst insists that Iowa workers don't need a living wage bit.ly/YGtSog
Overlooked fact about #iasen debate: Joni Ernst says she would have voted on ISIS exactly as Bruce Braley voted.
What's Tilllis' position? RT @thehill: GOP: Sen. @kayhagan is AWOL on #ISIS: j.mp/1wQYdfN by @cam_joseph #NCSen
RT @DannyVinik: Good catch from @ThePlumLineGS on key difference between Joni Ernst & Bruce Baley on min wage washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…
Also in Morning Plum: This weekend's polls confirm importance of getting irregular Dem voters out in IA, NC, LA: washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…
#lol RT @conncarroll: I love how all the "journalists" who whine about chickens in Iowa never say a peep about all the Dem Koch attacks.
On minimum wage, Joni Ernst is actually to the right of national Tea Party hero Tom Cotton: washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…
Joni Ernst's debate answer on min wage was crucial. No raise needed because IA cost of living "very low": washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…
don't need your stinkin' poll averages MT @MysteryPollster Everyone talking abt DMR poll, but IA close in our model huff.to/1voKPAy
fixed MT @MichaelLaRosaDC: In [every Senate race], It's [GOP candidate] vs. Obama #ARSEN realclearpolitics.com/articles/2014/…
Very fair @NateSilver538 piece on the folly of overhyping that @DMRegister poll that got some folks so excited: fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/senate…
! RT @HotlineJosh: Typo alert: Politico refers to Bruce Braley in write up as "Beltway Braley" politi.co/YCmsSM

New Tillis ad slams Hagan on ISIS: politico.com/story/2014/09/… But Tillis won't say how he'd have voted on war: washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…
Would Tilis favor sending in ground troops? RT @politico: Thom Tillis ad slams Kay Hagan on ISIL: politi.co/1rn5Uel
Reminder: Many in media pronounced Thom Tillis "winner" of NC-SEN debate. Hagan has led in every poll since.
As predicted: washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin… Ernst and Rs use debate to throw chicken feed to media
.@CNNPolitics deserves credit for releasing numbers among both likely voters and registered voters. Wish more pollsters did same.
Remind me why we sometimes selectively pretend Rasmussen polls are significant?
.@georgewillf: Fact that #iasen is so close "should make Rs anxious as they contemplate 2016 landscape": washingtonpost.com/opinions/georg…
RT @ProgressIowa In final month of #IAsen race will it finally be about issues or about chickens and hogs? wapo.st/YiLHJC
Prediction: At Sunday's #iasen debate, Rs/media will be looking to give Bruce Braley the Al Gore treatment: washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…
