Trick or Treat? A Few of the Best and Worst of the 2014 Congressional Candidates

Another Halloween is finally here, and while we’re out collecting goodies with our kiddos, carving pumpkins, and handing out sweets to trick-or-treaters in scary masks and playful costumes, we’ve also got plenty of genuine Treats, alongside the typical Tricksters, running for Congress. Here are just a handful of those offering premium boxed chocolates, alongside those offering stale, hollow hard-candies, like the ones stuck to the bottom of your candy bucket that no one ever eats:

First, the Treats:

Mia Love, running for Congress a second time after losing by a slim margin two years ago, is staring directly at a likely win Tuesday night. Mia is one of the most exciting new faces in the GOP. She’s the child of legal immigrants, and the former mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah. She also scares the bejeezus out of the Left: She’s a strong, conservative, self-reliant woman who also happens to be black, and with a win Tuesday night, Love will become the GOP’s first black woman elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. But her race and gender are merely incidental. Unlike a particular former Sec State, Mia is highly qualified and knows the issues facing America. She loves our country, and wants it restored to what our Founders intended. Here’s her inspirational speech from the 2012 National Republican Convention. It is stand-up-and-cheer phenomenal:

The GOP, in desperate need of a fresh, new face to articulate its time-tested policies and broaden its base, would do well to make Mia Love its go-to spokesperson.

Joni Ernst, locked in a tight race with her Democrat opponent, could become Iowa’s first woman ever elected to the United States Senate. But it’s not her gender that’s important; it’s her message and her fearless resolve. She showed voters what she’s made of in this wildly popular campaign video from earlier this year, which propelled Ms. Ernst, a Lieutenant Colonel in the Iowa Army National Guard, from underdog status just days before the vote, to the undisputed winner of her party’s primary:

Ernst continues with that same spunk, while repudiating the Left’s ludicrous War on Women mantra spewed, ironically, by her male opponent, leading into Tuesday’s general election:

Personally, I’m looking forward to a few rousing “Cut the Pork” Senate floor speeches should Ernst win Tuesday night. Watching Dirty Harry squeal would Make My Day.

Ben Sasse, endorsed by Conservative heavy-hitters Ted Cruz and Mark Levine, and beloved by Tea Partiers around the nation, won his primary in a landslide. Sasse recognizes that Barack Obama repeatedly violates our Constitution without repercussion, and with a win Tuesday evening, will hopefully work to finally address the rampant lawlessness that has engulfed our nation’s capitol. Sasse is a refreshing voice, and much-needed reinforcement for the Ted Cruzes of our U.S. Senate. Let’s hope, should he win, that he’ll walk the walk and finally rein in, and hold accountable, the out-of-control Obama Administration.

And now for the Tricksters:


Currently going through a nasty divorce, Floridian Alan Grayson, the frontrunner for Most Grotesque Congressional Candidate alongside his compadre, Princess Nancy Pelosi, is reportedly the 17th richest member of Congress. Yet his wife and children were just approved to receive food stamps. While none of us who’ve had the “privilege” of witnessing the abhorrent behavior of Representative Grayson would ever question why he’s divorcing, Instapundit has posted a link asking a far more interesting question: Why are his kids receiving state aid when Grayson’s personal wealth exceeds ten million dollars? Here’s the story from local ABC affiliate, WFTV.

And then there’s incumbent Senator Al “Stuart Smalley” Franken of Minnesota, winner of the 2008 Incarcerated Felons Vote. What has this scourge on our nation accomplished in the past six years aside from collecting a big, fat, taxpayer-funded paycheck, enjoying the undeserved accolades of Hollywood ignoramuses, and blindly furthering Obama’s anti-American agenda?

For some reason unbeknownst to this blogger, Franken is comfortably ahead in the polls. With a bar this low, OJ Simpson could run a half-witted campaign from his prison cell and win by a landslide. Here’s video, typical of Franken’s absolute cluelessness, from a recent debate with his GOP opponent:

Is it any wonder that Minnesota’s state bird is the loon?

Incumbent Senator Kay Hagan’s family reportedly personally benefited from Obama’s 2009 taxpayer-funded stimulus. Matt Vespa over at has the story about what amounts to legalized theft from the American taxpayers. Hagan, fighting desperately to retain the U.S. Senate seat she currently holds for North Carolina, whose supporters include Harry Reid’s Super PAC utilizing typical Leftist race-baiting to motivate its base, represents what is wrong with D.C.: She’s little more than a self-serving, say-anything to get elected politician who forgets who brung ‘er to the dance shortly after Election Day.

Mimicking the video he produced for Louisiana voters targeting embattled Senator Mary Landrieu, former Democrat turned Republican Elbert Guillory has released a powerful ad giving North Carolina voters a much-needed dose of Truth Serum about “Limousine Liberals” like Kay Hagan:

And because it’s just too consequential to the state of Wisconsin to ignore, a Dishonorable Mention for the Worst Gubernatorial Candidate of 2014 category is worth a look. Though she’s got stiff competition in Oregon, California, and Texas, the Meaningless Participant Ribbon goes to: Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s Democrat opponent, Mary Burke. Why, you ask? Firstly, for plagiarizing her jobs plan, and secondly, for reportedly being fired from her own family’s business, Trek, for incompetence. This is the very same woman who wants Wisconsin voters to believe she’s capable of running an entire state into prosperity. Should she win, run into the ground is the more likely outcome for Wisconsin’s economy. Twitchy has more on the story of her familial dismissal.

And with that we bid you a safe and happy Halloween. And a reminder to make your voices heard this coming Tuesday. It promises to be a long, potentially historic night, but hopefully, well worth the wait.

    “For some reason unbeknownst to this blogger, Franken is comfortably ahead in the polls”.

    Oh I can answer this for you-he’s from the People’s Republic of Minnesota, where, if the Dems ran Satan for office, he’d win in a landslide. I’m really proud this guy is my senator-NOT! And for even more laughs I also get to reside in the bailiwick of one Keith Ellison-1st KNOWN Muslim in Congress. For me Halloween lasts year round living among the likes of these cretins and their supporters. 🙁

      I empathize with your plight. I resided for a few years in the Land of 10,00 Taxes while completing my pastoral studies degree in downtown Minnie Apple. Brutal winters and some nice folks, but a bewildering amount of flat-liner Libs who put the state bird to shame with their stratospheric looniness.

      Here’s praying Franken can get bounced back to his little land of make believe and that Ellison in his hubris overreaches and voters see who’s really “behind the curtain” of his personal facade.
