Gregory Meeks (D) @GregoryMeeks

Job well done by our skilled diplomats: Egypt has announced release of US democracy workers and North Korea will suspend nuclear enrichment

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Newt's statement that Palestinians are "an invented people" reckless,harmful to US foreign policy and shows he's unfit for the office

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Huntsman withdrawal just adds to Romney inevitability. And now there are five --sorta

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Perry drops out. Cowboy swagger just didn't cut it

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

GOP debate again shortchanges Ron Paul while Romney mouthed every cliche. Gingrich and Santorum seemed strong

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

I plan to join @timkaine, @MarkWarner, @Jim_Moran, Bobby Scott, Montana Gov Schweitzer & 1,300 others at the JJ Dinner in Richmond.

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Santorum beats presumptive nominee in MO. and MN. Where are those pundits who declared it over in FL?

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Inconvenient fact: the auto rescue worked, magnificently. Tonight's debaters live in a parallel universe on that subject

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Bombast and threats do not a foreign policy make Newt, Rick and Mitt

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Will Ron Paul ever catch on that his philosophy is unwelcome in this party? War, education, debt & spending they reject your views.

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Except for Paul three GOP contenders all but declare war against Iran.

RT @dcmdvapm: @BuddyRoemer Thank you Buddy for standing up and having the courage to publicly call out those who continue to abuse the American people

There is an almost rabid tone to the AZ debate. One is as disturbed by the audience as by the four candidates themselves

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Santorum's satanic concern a disqualifier for presidency. We've crossed into utter craziness in this campaign http://t.co/Sgbm229X

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Santorum has been carpet bombed tonight--by Ron Paul.

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Romney is tonight's winner--and all but certain nominee--by comparison alone. Newt has given up, Rick is deer in headlight & Paul is a crank

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Mitt's talk to empty stadium in Detroit a metaphor for vapid message and dispirited campaign

Gerry Connolly (D) @GerryConnolly

Romney wins AZ and is ahead in MI. But MI is a weak win and presages a rough road ahead in OH,TN,GA and OK
