Here's the link to the Federal Elections 2006: Election Results for the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives. Thanks to Political Wire for the link. They write, "The Federal Election Commission's book of 2006 election returns, Federal Elections 2006, has been released and is available free by calling the FEC at 800-424-9530. The new guide is more in depth than any previous FEC publication of returns and features several illustrative maps. Of course, you can also download it from the agency's website."

Political Wire: "A new New York Times/CBS News poll finds Rudy Giuliani leading the Republican presidential race with 27%, followed by Fred Thompson at 22%, Sen. John McCain at 18% and Mitt Romney at 14%. Last month, Giuliani held a 20-point lead over Thompson, who had not officially declared his candidacy yet. On the Democratic side, Sen. Hillary Clinton leads with 44%, trailed by Sen. Barack Obama at 26% and John Edwards at 17%."

Here's a post from The Moderate Voice about the Miers nomination. Mr. Gandleman writes, "President George Bush's nomination of his lawyer Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court is now turning out to require a sales job that may not necessarily require an emergency visit by super salesman Zig Zigler - but all the King's horses and all the King's men may not be able to put George Bush's agenda and trust from some factions of his party together again."

Stygius writes, "If more than a handful of Republican senators oppose Miers, every Democrat in the Senate should join them -- in the expectation that even if they do for whatever reason find Miers palatable, the next nominee will be more so, while Democratic power in Congress will be solidified in the face of upcoming elections. This was something politically impossible with the Roberts nomination. With Miers, it now borders on the politically imperative."

Colorado Pols is running a statement from U.S. Senator Ken Salazar's office. Salazar intends to support John Roberts. Salazar writes, "In the West, you take people at their word. Based on the word given by Judge John Roberts, I will cast my vote for his confirmation as Chief Justice of the United States."

The U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee is expected to vote today on the nomination of John Roberts as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, according to the Denver Post [September 22, 2005, "13,000 Coloradans petition senators on Roberts"]. From the article, "The Colorado Republican Party says it has collected more than 5,000 signatures backing Roberts and plans to send them next week to Salazar and Sen. Wayne Allard, R-Colo., who supports the nominee...(U.S. Senator) Salazar said Wednesday that he had not decided how he'll vote. He has asked the White House for more records on Roberts' Justice Department work...Rep. Mark Udall, D-Colo., has no say on the issue. But he urged Senate Democrats on Wednesday to back confirmation."

Here's the coverage from the Rocky Mountain News [September 22, 2005, "Salazar unsure on Roberts vote"].

The Denver Post editorial staff is in favor of a Chief Justice John Roberts [September 22, 2005, "Roberts able choice for U.S. chief justice"]. They write, "...during last week's hearings, what we did learn was reassuring. Roberts put himself forward as a practical jurist who would bring an open mind and legal rectitude to his lifetime assignment. We favor Roberts' confirmation and expect he will perform ably on the high court and as chief of the federal judiciary."

Bull Moose: "What about consulting the folks who are in the check-out line at Wal-Mart and Target? The American people can only be perplexed by the near Pavlovian opposition to Roberts. How believable will the opposition be if the next nominee is truly a threat to the Republic? There are precious few statesmen and a slew of predictable panderers to parochial partisan interest groups. Democrats might consider trusting the people again."
