Two Books, Two Senate Candidates, Two Congressional Candidates, Three Other Combat Veterans

In the course of the broadcast week just concluded, I interviewed two authors whose books were terrific.

Christian Sahner’s Among The Ruins, Syria Past and Present is vital to understanding what is happening in Syria, (and Lebanon, Iraq and indeed the entire Arab world) today. (The audio and transcript of my interview with Sahner is here.  He ought to be on every cable channel talking about the ISIS advance on Kobani as he may be the only 27-year old commentator who has been in Raqaa, lived long stretches in Damascus, and who speaks Arabic.)

J.B. Simmons’ Unbound is a brand new “Young Adult” novel that I described as The DaVinci Code meeting The Hunger Games meeting Left Behind in my interview with him, and which you 13 to 18 ear old reader will love (and many adults as well.)  More info on J.B. is here.

I am getting a lot of questions on where to make you last 30 days contributions, and I suggest Colorado’s Cory Gardner where Gardner’s lead is the smallest among GOP candidates and North Carolina’s Thom Tillis where Tillis has closed to a virtual tie with Kay Hagan.  Every dollar counts.

And two great military veterans —Martha McSally and Wendy Rodgers— are running in Arizona against incumbent Obamaites and are either leading or tied with the Democratic opponents.

Finally, Dan Sullivan in Alaska and Joni Ernst in Iowa would bring the perspective of combat veterans to the Senate. Both have leads slightly larger than Gardner’s, but could use your help. Tom Cotton of course is also a veteran, and Army Ranger with combat tours in Afghanistan and Iraq, and as Chuck Todd said in yesterday’s interview, it is hard to see how Mark Pryor wins re-election at this point, but some last-minute cash wouldn’t hurt in helping to widen the lead.
