    La Porte, IN–Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said a kid growing up in his household would have been spanked if they acted out the way a boy did towards him Sunday during a rally. The pre-teen boy was escorted out by local law enforcement when he told Cruz during a rally, “You suck.” The incident began when Cruz talked about his tax plan and heard the boy’s voice screaming something un-intelligible to him from the crowd. “Apparently there’s a young boy who’s had some problems,” Cruz said. The child yelled something unknown again at Cruz but then screamed louder, “You suck.”

    Urging voters to pick him over rival and Republican front-runner Donald Trump, presidential candidate Ted Cruz framed the battle to win the Indiana primary as a choice between good and evil. "I believe in the people of the Hoosier state. I believe that the men and women gathered here and the goodness of the American people, that we will not give into evil but we will remember who we are and we will stand for our values,” Cruz said at a rally in La Porte, Indiana.

In fact, he racks up huge numbers. Any place where the bosses decide and the Republican Establishment decides, Sen. Ted Cruz is able to nibble delegates here and nibble delegates there. I think Trump is going to win Indiana, but the Indiana delegate process is already being done, and right now Donald Trump...

When Joe Scarborough asked him why the FBI investigation of Hillary's email is taking so long, Barnicle said "I have not spoken to anyone who believes there is an indictable offense that has occurred." Responded Scarborough sarcastically: "you're talking to a very tightly focused crowd there," adding that people in the intel community say "anybody else would be in prison right now." The befuddled Barnicle reversed himself...

    Even as Donald J. Trump trounced him from New Hampshire to Florida to Arizona, Senator Ted Cruz could reassure himself with one crucial advantage: He was beating Mr. Trump in the obscure, internecine delegate fights that could end up deciding the Republican nomination for president. “This is how elections are won in America,” Mr. Cruz gloated after walking away with the most delegates in Wyoming last month. Now, as he faces a potentially candidacy-threatening contest on Tuesday in Indiana — where a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll, released Sunday morning, showed him trailing Mr. Trump by 15 percentage points...

MIAMI (AP) — Tens of thousands of immigrants are applying for U.S. citizenship in a year when immigration is at the center in this year's presidential campaign. Many immigration advocates say fear of Donald Trump becoming president is motivating many longtime immigrants to apply for citizenship, so they can vote.

    Why current polling tells us nothing about who will win the presidential race in November. We hear a lot of talk about the November election especially from John Kasich who has lost 45 of 46 primary contests but stays in the race because he’s the only Republican who beats Hillary head on in the polls. “Remember this,” Kasich told Fox, “I’m beating Hillary Clinton in every single poll… I’m the only one with the positive ratings so we ought to be focusing on what happens in the fall not just who wins the nomination.” But as Kasich knows - and...

    INDIANAPOLIS — If Indiana Republican primary voters have the same faith in U.S. Rep. Marlin Stutzman that he has in them, he just may be one step closer to taking his anti-establishment, conservative approach to the U.S. Senate. On the road from an event in Indianapolis, Stutzman said Sunday he feels good about his chances in Tuesday’s Republican primary as he vies with U.S. Rep. Todd Young for the GOP nod to replace the retiring U.S. Sen. Dan Coats.

    In 1994, Lindsey Graham, then a 39-year-old South Carolina legislator, ran for Congress in a district that he said had not elected a Republican since Union guns made it do so during Reconstruction. He promised that in Washington he would be "one less vote for an agenda that makes you want to throw up." He was elected to the Senate in 2002 and soon almost certainly will join the Republican presidential scramble, enlivening it with his quick intelligence, policy fluency, mordant wit and provocative agenda. He has the normal senatorial tendency to see a president in the mirror and an...

John Kasich, some other failed 2016 contender or even House Speaker Paul D. Ryan — has become "none of the above." In each instance, the case for why any one of these candidates probably won't be picked has gotten much stronger than the one for why each of the individual candidates would. Despite...

Cruz supports the North Carolina measure, as I have and as I do,” Savage told his listeners. Savage said Trump’s supporters need to acknowledge the candidate made a mistake. “People do make mistakes,” he said. “I agree with Ted Cruz on this issue.”

Yet somehow, in this most contentious political year for Republicans, I am going to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland as a delegate. Here’s how it happened. Wyoming, the least populated state, sends 29 delegates to the Republican National Convention, but that number varies every four years, depending on how well the Republican Party is represented in the state (i.e. legislative seats held, governorship held, party membership per capita). The same system exists at the state level....

    Donald J. Trump is leading Senator Ted Cruz of Texas by double digits in Indiana, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll, an ominous sign for Mr. Cruz going into the crucial primary there on Tuesday. A loss in Indiana would represent a near-fatal blow to Mr. Cruz’s campaign and would significantly increase pressure on him to withdraw from the race...

    “Mexico First” has been the open, avowed policy of the government of Mexico for a generation, and Mexico expects its former residents to be loyal to Mexico for the next 200 years. Yet, when Donald Trump calls for an “America First” foreign policy, as he did in a speech this past week, he is denounced by pundits and the national security establishment for “nativism” and “demagoguery,” as if that policy is a novel and radical idea. Well, not in Mexico. I know that for a fact because I had it explained to me in Mexico City back in 2001 by...

    “Trump’s Top Women,” the headline read. And the subhead: “Surprise! Mr. Macho’s Inner Circle Isn’t An All-Boys’ Club.”'... Trump has consistently hired women for positions of real power in his organization... Twenty-six years ago...four of the eight people in Trump’s innermost circle were women... ...Res and Sprague both described Trump as a supportive boss who gave them a shot in an industry that was particularly unwelcoming to women. “When I first started at this, I’d find nasty drawings of myself on the job site, and men would try to intimidate me by peeing on the girders,” says Res of the...

    I read hundreds of articles and posts every week in an effort to distill for you those that I think are the most informative. This week, there is only one clear choice, the memo Rich Danker (Lone Star Committee Founder) wrote and which William Kristol republished in edited form in the Weekly Standard: It explains better than anyone else has the reason for Donald Trump’s front-runner status, dissecting what has been a strategically brilliant campaign. It’s worth your time to read if you seek to understand this year’s Republican primary. As well it should be considered a template for future...

    Even as Donald J. Trump trounced him from New Hampshire to Florida to Arizona, Senator Ted Cruz could reassure himself with one crucial advantage: He was beating Mr. Trump in the obscure, internecine delegate fights that could end up deciding the Republican nomination for president. “This is how elections are won in America,” Mr. Cruz gloated after walking away with the most delegates in Wyoming. But it turns out that delegates — like ordinary voters — are susceptible to shifts in public opinion. And as the gravitational pull of Mr. Trump’s recent primary landslides draws more Republicans toward him, Mr....

    As of today (May 1), Donald Trump has won 27 of the 38 state contests to date for the Republican nomination. For purposes of this post, I'm not including U.S. territories. States only. When you filter just for primaries however, where the people actually get to vote, Trump has won 24 of the 28 primaries held so far. In terms of primaries, Cruz has won Texas, Oklahoma, Idaho and Wisconsin. Trump has won all the rest. Including a complete sweep of the Deep South and the Northeast (with the exception of caucus state Maine). East of the Mississippi, Cruz has...

Removing that error from his record means Martland, 33, will continue to serve at least through the end of his enlistment.</p>
