Primary Elections, Tuesday, August 3rd, and Thursday, August 5th

Kansas, Michigan and Missouri go to the polls for their primaries tomorrow, August 3rd, while Tennessee will be holding their primary on Thursday, August 5th.

The Republican race in Michigan for Governor is very close and will depend on which candidate can turn out their supporters.

Congressman Pete Hoekstra was the leading candidate for months but businessman Rick Snyder has gradually been gaining ground. Tomorrow night should be interesting as the votes start coming in to see who will prevail to become the Republican candidate for Michigan Governor. Republicans will be getting behind the winner come Wednesday morning to unite in ousting the Democrats from the Michigan Governor's Office. With the poor shape of the Michigan economy believe the Michigan voters will be giving the Republican a chance to turn things around. It sure cannot get any worse in Michigan than what the Democrats have managed to do to the state. Michigan was on its back long before the rest of the Country. Time to turn Michigan around and elect a Republican to become Governor to lead the way on November 2nd, 2010!

In Missouri, Cong Roy Blunt is leading Republicans for the nomination to replace Senator Kit Bond who is retiring in Jan 2011. He is expected to face Democrat Robin Carnahan in the general election and as of now holds a six point lead in the latest polling. The stunner may come this fall when longtime Democrat Ike Skelton faces his stiffest challenge ever in the MO 4th District. Republicans are determined to defeat Skelton this time and turn the 4th District of Missouri Red. There are currently nine Republicans running to challenge Skelton.

In Kansas, Republicans are expected to keep the Senate seat in GOP control as the Democrats are not fielding a top tiered candidate. Retiring Senator Sam Brownback is running for Kansas Governor and his chances are excellent to become the next Governor of Kansas. This year Kansas like Oklahoma should have a very 'Red' year at the State level.

Thursday in Tennessee, voters will be choosing the candidates to face off in November for the Tennessee Governor which is an open seat. There is no US Senate seat up for election in Tennessee this election cycle.
