Most Hawkish on ISIS? Tea Party Wing of GOP

U.S. military engagement on Islamic State may alter the political calculus for this year's midterms, but the potential impacts may reach beyond the next few months and into 2016, thanks to a shift among tea party supporters. In September 2013, 64% of tea party supporters said they believed taking military action against "the Syrian government" was not in the national interest.

A Republican Wave? GOP governors facing a tough year

Both Mr. McConnell and Ms. Grimes Go to Washington

Kentucky Republican Senator Mitch McConnell has raised 81 percent of his campaign's cash from outside his state. Who's the real Washington insider? Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell or his Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes ? Both candidates and their surrogates have lobbed the scurrilous insult this week as both have made time in their busy schedules to raise money from the monied set in D.C. The fact is, both candidates rely heavily on out-of-state contributions, and both have raised significant cash from inside the Beltway - but McConnell's massive fundraising operation has raised far more.
