WASHINGTON — Democrats in key races may lose the women voters who have propelled the party to victory in recent elections.

In a trio of swing states — Colorado, New Hampshire and Iowa — Democratic Senate candidates are capturing a narrower margin of female support than in recent elections, while men are solidly backing Republicans. That gender gap appears to favor the GOP as these races tighten in the final stretch of the midterm elections.

In Colorado, the gap is especially stark. According to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday, the latest public survey in the race, Democratic Sen. Mark Udall has a 9-percentage-point advantage among women, while Republican Rep. Cory Gardner has a 19-percentage-point advantage among men. Gardner leads overall, 47%-41%.




Much of the election news this week has focused on the DSCC being essentially in disarray and pulling money out of the races for Senate seats where they’d previously thought they would be competitive. (See Ms. Grimes, for one example.) But the sense of panic seems to be spreading and it’s now infected the DCCC as well. Money is shifting away from House seats where the Democrats were looking to make their stand and it’s being replaced by conservative funds which are suddenly sensing some blood in the water.



DETROIT — Democratic gubernatorial nominee Mark Schauer did so poorly in his debate performance Sunday against Gov. Rick Snyder that he skipped his only chance to frame the post-debate narrative. That was the story to emerge from the debate on the campus of Wayne State University, where Schauer and Snyder shared a stage for the one and only debate in this year’s campaign. As the winner of the pre-debate coin toss, Schauer was entitled to address the assembled press corps before the Republican incumbent.



MICHIGAN – Terri Lynn Land’s campaign for U.S. Senate is calling on U.S. Rep. Gary Peters and his supporters to denounce what the Land campaign says are anti-woman attacks aimed at the Republican.

“I learned that Congressman Peters campaign and allies took to Twitter for being a mom and framing it around important policy matters through the lens as a parent,” Land explained. “I was offended.  I mean, Congressman Peters went too far. But I’m not shocked by this.”

The Land campaign points to a series of tweets sent by a Peters campaign staffer andsupporters earlier this week, aimed at comments Land made about being a mother.



With less than one month remaining until Americans head to the polls to determine which party will control the upper chamber of Congress for the remainder of the Obama presidency, the race for control of the lower chamber has been largely overlooked by the press.

Many have noted that the nature of the current political environment in combination with the extent of the GOP’s gains in the House shorn up by favorable reapportionment in many states following the 2010 census has put retaking the lower chamber out of the Democrats’ reach in 2014. Some House Democrats are suggesting, however, that the party may be ceding control of that chamber to the GOP for the foreseeable future.



On Monday Michigan Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate Terri Lynn Land delivered her second strong performance in the last four days. Meanwhile, the Peters campaign has remained silent on scheduling debates after abruptly calling off debate negotiations on Friday.

At a public editorial board interview with MLive Media Group in Grand Rapids, Terri answered questions on a wide range of subjects and effectively delivered her message on putting Michigan First and the failures of Gary Peters, such as outsourcing auto jobs.
