Sailing: San Francisco has been selected to host the 34th America’s Cup Matches….Daniel

Official Press Release:

San Francisco has been selected as the host venue for the 34th America’s Cup. An official celebration event will be hosted in San Francisco on January 5th, event location details to be announced.

“We sought a venue that fulfills our promise – to showcase the best sailors in the world competing on the fastest boats,” said Richard Worth, Chairman, America’s Cup Event Authority.  “And hosting the America’s Cup in San Francisco will realize that promise.“

“We thank Mayor Newsom, Board President Chiu, Supervisor Mirkarimi and all of the Board of Supervisors, the staff at City Hall and the Port Authority, Mark Buell and San Francisco America’s Cup Organizing Committee, and all who have worked so diligently on securing the bid,” Worth continued. “We look forward to working closely with City of San Francisco over the coming months to create a world-class America’s Cup event, and a large and lasting beneficial impact on the City.”

The world-famous San Francisco Bay will be home to the 2013 America’s Cup Finals and the Challenger Selection Series for the Louis Vuitton Cup, as well as an America’s Cup World Series event in 2012. This will be the first time the America’s Cup has been hosted in the United States since 1995.

“Today is one of great celebration, with San Francisco winning the right to host the America’s Cup, and all of the economic benefit, jobs and excitement that comes with it,” said Mayor Gavin Newsom. “San Francisco is the best place on Earth to host an event of this stature, and we could not be more proud to be the city that brings the America’s Cup back home to the United States.”

Independent studies show that the America’s Cup delivers the third largest economic impact in sport to host countries, behind the Olympic Games and soccer’s World Cup. The 34th America’s Cup is projected to pump an estimated $1.4 billion dollars into the San Francisco region.

“As a native San Franciscan, I grew up sailing in front of the City. Racing for the America’s Cup in San Francisco is something I have dreamt of my whole life,” said Paul Cayard, CEO of Sweden’s Artemis Racing, a challenger for the 34th America’s Cup. ”By hosting sailing’s most important event in the Bay, the world will see sailing as it never has before.  As a team, Artemis Racing is particularly looking forward to competing in San Francisco.”

Racing will be held on the iconic San Francisco Cityfront and be visible from world-renown tourist destinations such as the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin Headlands, Crissy Field, the Embarcadero and Fisherman’s Wharf. An influx of millions of tourists is expected for the Challenger Series for the Louis Vuitton Cup and the America’s Cup Finals in late 2013.

“My support for San Francisco hosting the America’s Cup goes beyond the opportunity to see our team competing on home waters,” said Russell Coutts, CEO, ORACLE Racing, the current America’s Cup defending team. “We are excited to sail for our sport’s greatest trophy, on a stretch of water legendary among sailors worldwide.”

The Race Village will be constructed on Piers 19 and 29, with the team bases at and around Pier 30/32.  As part of the plan, the America’s Cup Event Authority will redevelop these piers as well as the surrounding infrastructure to support the racing, while rehabilitating the piers for the enjoyment of generations of San Franciscans to come.

With a goal of creating the most dynamic America’s Cup in history for fans and participants, changes have been introduced to the 34th edition. Enhancements include the introduction of groundbreaking new 72’ wing-sailed catamarans capable of speeds in excess of 40 miles per hour, new race formats and rules, and a transformed media and online broadcasting approach to enable an interactive viewer experience.

In the summer of 2011, America’s Cup teams will commence racing in the new America’s Cup World Series in the new wing-sailed AC45 catamaran. The America’s Cup World Series calendar of events will be published in early 2011.

The wooing of Dino Rossi…..

Republicans have had their eye on Dino Rossi (shown) since late March. | AP Photo

[ Washington Senate hopeful Dino Rossi left D.C. in late March feeling reassured that he would not want for national support if he entered the race. ]
Daniel was very up on getting Washington State Senator Dino Rossi, a Republican,  to run against US Senator Patty Murray, who is a Democrat…..

Rossi was very iffy at first….citing family and Washington ‘bad ‘rep as reasons NOT to run…..

But Rossi always posted good polling numbers when other Republican’s didn’t…

The GOP asked to run…..

And…..

Rossi has jumped in…..

I saw this post in Politico and have posted it……

With the Senate still wrangling over a groundbreaking health care overhaul, about a dozen Republican senators — nearly one-third of the GOP conference — took time out from their hectic schedules in late March to talk to an out-of-towner about his family and their governing priorities if they were to retake the majority in November.

The out-of-towner in question wasn’t some wide-eyed, camera-wielding tourist. Rather, he was a prospective star Senate recruit considered essential to GOP hopes of expanding the general election playing field and winning back the upper chamber — Dino Rossi.

The goal was to persuade Rossi to challenge three-term Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). And Senate Republicans were ultimately successful, with Rossi eventually announcing his bid in late May — about two months after his red-carpet treatment in the Capitol.

The episode provided a window into the sometimes elaborate courtship process that takes place during candidate recruitment, with Rossi leaving D.C. feeling reassured that a Senate career is not mutually exclusive with having a family and that he would not want for national support if he entered the race.

His would-be colleagues compared his potential candidacy with that of Republican darling Scott Brown’s winning Senate campaign in Massachusetts and cast the 2010 crop of GOP Senate candidates as a sort of dream team that could fundamentally alter the ideological composition of the U.S. Senate.

“When I went there, I wasn’t all that convinced that if they got the majority, they’d actually do something, because I don’t need to be part of any club,” Rossi said in an interview with POLITICO.

Daniel…. Oregon Governor and Senate Races: Kitzhaber (D-OR) in MAJOR Trouble, Wyden appears SAFE for November according to an exclusive Survey USA Poll

Hello Folks and Good Afternoon!

We’ve the first Post Primary Poll from Survey USA in Oregon and it shows former Governor John Kitzhaber (D-OR) has some work to do this November. Former NBA Basketball Pro Chris Dudley (R-OR) leads Kitzhaber by 7 Points.

In the Senate Race this November Incumbent Ronald “Ron” Wyden (D-OR) appears to be a SAFE bet for Re-Election at this Point as he leads Republican Jim Huffman (R-OR) by 13 Points.

Note: THE ENTIRE ELECTION WILL BE DONE BY MAIL.

KATU-TV / Survey USA Poll

Oregon Governor

Former NBA Professional Chris Dudley (R)  47 %
Former Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber (D)  40 %
Businessman Jerry Wilson (Progressive Party)  6 %
Undecided  7 %

Oregon Senate

Incumbent Senator Ronald Lee “Ron” Wyden (D)  51 %
Law School Professor Jim Huffman (R)  38 %
Financial Planner Marc Delphine (Libertarian)  4 %
Psychatrist Rick Staggenborg (Green Party)  2 %
Undecided  5 %

Analysis:

5 Months Till Oregon Votes, Former Trailblazer Edges Former Governor for Statehouse; Wyden Strong in US Senate Re-Elect Bid: In an election for Oregon governor today, 06/10/10, Republican Chris Dudley edges Democrat John Kitzhaber, according to a SurveyUSA poll conducted exclusively for KATU-TV in Portland.

Dudley, a former professional basketball player, has a 14-point lead among men. Among women, the race is tied. When men and woman are combined today, the Republican Dudley has a 47% to 40% advantage. A third candidate, Progressive Jerry Wilson, today gets 6% of the overall vote, 12% of the vote among Independents. Third party candidates have until August 24 to file to appear on the ballot; additional candidates may enter the race.

The Democrat Kitzhaber, Governor of Oregon from 1995-2003, leads only among the youngest, and often least-reliable, voters. Among voters age 35+, Dudley leads. 87% of those who support the Tea Party vote Republican. 80% of those who oppose the Tea Party vote Democrat.
In an election today for United States Senator from Oregon, Incumbent Democrat Ron Wyden is elected to a third full term, defeating Republican law school professor Jim Huffman. Wyden leads by 22 points in greater Portland; Huffman leads by 4 points in the rest of Oregon. When those two regions are combined today, the Democrat Wyden has a 51% to 38% advantage.

Filtering: SurveyUSA interviewed 800 Oregon adults 06/07/10 through 06/09/10. Of them, 711 were registered to vote. Of the registered voters, 566 were identified by SurveyUSA as being likely to vote in the November general election. Incumbent Governor Ted Kulongoski is constitutionally term limited to two consecutive terms. The election is 100% by mail; ballots will be mailed in October.

Daniel….Quinnipiac University Survey: Democratic Senate Candidate Kendrick B. Meek (D-FL) and Republican Governor Candidate William “Bill” McCollum (R-FL) having HUGE Problems in their Primaries

Hello Folks and Good Afternoon!

This is STUNNING and HUGELY surprising. After Q-Pac put up General Election Polling for Florida yesterday, they also polled the Primaries of both Contest showing Meek (D-FL) and McCollum (R-FL) in massive trouble for their August 24th Primaries.

Quinnipiac University

Florida Governor Race

Republican Primary

Businessman Rick Scott  44 %
State Attorney General William “Bill” McCollum  31 %
Others  1 %
Undecided  24 %

Florida Senate Race

Democratic Primary

U. S. Rep. Kendrick B. Meek  29 %
Businessman Jeff Greene  27 %
Former Miami Mayor Maurice Ferre  3 %
Others  3 %
Undecided  37 %

Analysis:

Meek’s Numbers clearly show how much a flawed Candidate he is. It’s now entirely possible Greene can win this. The GOP Governor Primary is REALLY STUNNING. It could be a virtual copy of what happened in the GOP Senate Primary between Rubio and Crist before the Incumbent Governor decided to run as Independent.

Well, I warned about McCollum time and time again. At this Point it looks like I was RIGHT.

Daniel ….I saw this on MSNBC this morning…..Wow!

This Greene guy has a boat load of money…..and has used it to close  on Meek who is serious trouble and will probably not make the ticket…..As for McCollum…Props to you….Looks like he isn’t gonna make it either….

I got stung on my last minute cross feelings on Halter…..I had the underlying dynamics correct but made the opposite call……..I will not call many races anymore…. too far out……
