Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is breaking with conservative Sens. Ted Cruz and Mike Lee over the legislative prospects for the post-election lame duck congressional session.

This weekend, the reelection campaign of Sen. Pat Roberts posted what to most people would appear to be a really long, totally wordless, curiously unfinished campaign ad.

Sessions unopposed in primary or general election

The primary season just ended and the general election campaign now unfolding looks the same to Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions, tea party favorite, foe of immigration legislation and the only Republican senator running in 2014 without a ballot opponent of any stripe. "Jeff Sessions is probably held in higher esteem than the Alabama football coach and the Auburn football coach put together," says Rep. Mo Brooks, a tea party-backed congressman from the football-mad state.
