  • LIVE THREAD: Ryan vs Nehlen Wisconsin 1st Congressional District Primary 8/09/2016

    08/09/2016 9:50:32 AM PDT · by nikos1121 · 429 replies
    1st CD, Republican: Incumbent Paul Ryan, of Janesville, and Paul Nehlen, of Williams Bay. I absolutely have nothing on this election, so I thought I'd start a thread, and we can add to it as information comes in. Some polls have Ryan way ahead, and a few find it less certain. On the other hand, wasn't this the climate before the Cantor election? He was sitting fat dumb and happy with a big lead in the polls? If I were a betting man, I'd have to put my money on Ryan and by all counts, he's a very popular guy...

    Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) said there's "potential" for House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to be drafted as a presidential nominee at a Republican convention because he is the one person who could unify the party. "I think it's just natural that that speculation would happen because he's one of the great leaders here on Capitol Hill and one of the people who brings both sides, all sides together, I should say," Hatch told reporters Thursday.

    Just a few miles from his family home, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) felt the wrath of the tea party Saturday, when activists in his congressional district booed and heckled the second-most powerful House Republican. (SNIP) When I sit here and I listen to Mr. Brat speak I hear the inaccuracies my familys here. Cantor said. As he was interrupted by the raucous crowd, Cantors anger was evident: Thats enough we are a country of free speech, so decencys also part of this.

    The time has come for desperate measures against the Oligarchy. We must continue to remove the heads of the republican establishment until they begin to listen to the American people. Eric Cantor has been removed. John Boehner has been removed. Kevin McCarthy has been prevented. And while there were rumblings of a primary challenge to Speaker Paul Ryan, it's now late February and not a single person has yet stepped up to the plate. Primary elections in the State of Wisconsin will be held on August 9, 2016. Without a strong primary challenge, Paul Ryan will breeze to the November...

    Ooouuuch. My sides are still aching after last week's comical announcement by GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush that he had snagged the coveted endorsement of notorious electoral reject Eric Cantor, the former House majority leader kicked to the curb by disgusted voters in Virginia's 2014 primary election. Newsflash to GOP elites: Getting Cantor's support is not like landing a prized marlin. It's like hooking one of those hideous bottom-feeding blobfish named the world's ugliest creature. Inside the Beltway, The Washington Post reported, "Cantor remains well-liked and respected in the Virginia business community and among the Republican donor class in the...

    Trying to get the GOP base on your side? Master stroke from Jeb! here. Cantor was courted intensely by other candidates. Cantor retains a strong political network in Virginia, a key primary and swing state. And he has enviable connections among Jewish business leaders who can be key supporters and donors. This is a big deal for Eric, and a big deal for Jeb, said a top Republican involved in the negotiations. A Cantor source said: They have known each other for a long time, speak regularly and have great mutual respect for one another. Eric believes he is the...

Among the many who have opined on the issue is former Lieutenant Governor Bill Bolling who took to his Facebook page Thursday to voice his support for a primary: If the Virginia GOP opts to nominate our candidate for President in a closed party convention, as opposed to an open statewide primary, it will be a HUGE mistake. We cannot survive if we are determine to be a party of exclusion, as opposed to a...

    Southern California Edison (SCE) IT workers replaced by H-1B contractors have become the latest Exhibit A in Congress for reformers of the visa program. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who has long advocated for changes to the H-1B program to protect U.S. workers, said the Edison layoffs illustrate how some employers "are potentially using legal avenues to import foreign workers, lay-off qualified Americans, and then export jobs overseas. "I was shocked by the heartless manner in which U.S. workers were injured," said Grassley in a Senate floor speech Wednesday. (SNIP) "The sponsors of the bill claim it will 'boost our competitiveness...
