    The Democratic National Committee has rolled back restrictions introduced by presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2008 that banned donations from federal lobbyists and political action committees. The decision, which may provide an advantage to Hillary Clinton’s candidacy, was viewed with disappointment Friday morning by good government activists who saw it as a step backward in the effort to limit special interest influence in Washington.

    As Matthew Continetti remarked on Twitter, whoever handles Team Cruz' campaign ads deserves a raise - assuming this comes directly from the campaign, as MSNBC reported today. While Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders argued over the record of Henry Kissinger and the foreign policy of the Nixon administration, the Cruz campaign launched a pitch-perfect shot at Hillary in this Office Space spoof. Rather than destroying a printer, however, "Hillary" and two aides destroy an e-mail server while the soundtrack raps out, "Damn, it feels good to be a Clinton": ...

    Among the two candidates whose results look at all like those of an eventual GOP presidential nominee, polling suggests that Ted Cruz would do significantly better than Donald Trump in the general election. According to the Real Clear Politics average of recent polls, Cruz would fare 5 points better versus Hillary Clinton than Trump would. Polling has consistently shown Cruz to have an advantage over Trump in this regard: Fox News found that Cruz would fare 4 points better than Trump, beating Clinton by 7 points (50 to 43 percent) to Trump's 3 (47 to 44 percent).

Scott Keller and Chip Roy - who served in top roles in Cruz's Senate office - are now litigators on behalf of Texas, leading the lawsuit against Obama's unilateral actions, which are at the cornerstone of the president's immigration legacy. The duo's positions also underscore Cruz's enduring influence and reach...

According to Beck’s theory, Bush knows there is no path to the nomination but is convinced that someone has to stop his biggest rival and No. 1 critic, fellow Republican hopeful Donald Trump. “This would make Jeb one of the most honorable men you could ever imagine.

Investing an egregious amount of money in ads landed Bush in fourth place with 11 percent of the vote, according to election results as of Tuesday night. The next-highest spenders were New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who spent $852 per vote and came in sixth place, and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who spent $508 per vote and came in just behind Bush in fifth place.

And remember that since the current primary calendar was inaugurated in 1976, no GOP nominee has ever emerged without winning Iowa or New Hampshire. In case you haven't been paying attention, that means that, if history is a guide, the GOP is likely going to be choosing between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz as a nominee, which...
