    HOUSTON, Texas – Presidential candidate Ted Cruz today announced the endorsement of former Scott Walker supporter, Iowa State Senator Randy Feenstra. The endorsement follows Cruz’s earlier announcement that all three of Walker’s former grassroots co-chairs in Georgia are also now organizing for the Cruz campaign.“It is an honor to earn Randy’s support and I look forward to working with him as we compete to win Iowa and the entire GOP primary,” Sen. Cruz said. “I am very proud of the network of courageous conservatives we’ve built across Iowa. Their hard work will be crucial to restore jobs, growth and security...

    Senator Ted Cruz just picked up a huge endorsement in Iowa. Iowa-based talk radio host Steve Deace, who has been a fixture for conservatives in the Hawkeye State, spoke highly of Cruz’s record and his belief that only the Texan can clean up Washington. In an advance statement provided to IJReview, Deace said: “Ted Cruz presents exactly what we’ve been waiting for, an end to the Washington Cartel’s false choice between our principles and electability. No one can question Ted’s courage of conviction and his commitment to our principles.” Deace insisted that Cruz has the chops “to actually defeat the...

Zero. Zip,” said Steve Conn, president of the Detroit Federation of Teachers. “This is wrong and something needs to be done.” The 45-member AFT executive board voted Saturday to back Clinton despite an AFL-CIO request to wait until July when the presidential field is more set.

    Comedian and radio personality Adam Carolla is apparently a big fan of Sen. Ted Cruz. During a Friday morning interview with the Texas Republican, Carolla approved of the presidential candidate and personally thanked him for wanting to outright abolish the Internal Revenue Service. “Thank you so much for wanting to eliminate the IRS,” Carolla began the conversation. “It’s driving me nuts.” “I think that is a powerful populist issue and today is the day when its on people’s minds,” Cruz said, reminding listeners that Wednesday was Tax Day. Carolla argued that taxes are an important issue that gets overshadowed by...

    A record number of rogue Christian pastors are endorsing candidates from the pulpit this election cycle, using Sunday sermons to defiantly flout tax rules. Their message to the IRS: Sue me. But the tax agency is doing anything but. Although the IRS was sued itself for not enforcing the law and admitted about 100 churches may be breaking the rules, the pastors and their critics alike say the agency is looking the other way. The agency refuses to say if it is acting. At the same time, the number of pastors endorsing candidates in what they call Pulpit Freedom Sunday...

But when he comes out and endorses Mitch McConnell vs. a viable Tea Party challenger (when there was no reason for him to weigh-in in the first place) it becomes clear enough to me that Rick Perry is not the man to reliably bring this country anything resembling a Reagan Revolution. He plays a good conservative when campaigning, and would most certainly portray himself as one again in 2016- but this time the stink won't...

    Citizens United is endorsing Rep. Paul Broun (R-Ga.) in the crowded Georgia Senate primary. The nod from the conservative group will give the Tea Party favorite a boost — and establishment Republicans new reason to be concerned about the race. Establishment Republicans have publicly fretted about Broun winning the primary, fearing he might not be the party's best candidate in a general election. The congressman regularly refers to President Obama as a socialist and communist, and has said evolution and the big bang theories are lies "from the pit of hell."

Voters will soon render their verdict, and the choice seems starker than at any point in this race. Mitt Romney has offered America a path to a better future and a detailed, specific “Plan for a Stronger Middle Class.” His policies would create 12 million new jobs and increase take-home pay. They would restore fiscal sanity to the nation’s capital and opportunity to an economy that has lacked it for four long years. Mr. Romney has...

Despite his presence on the president’s job council, however, Ortellini has criticized the administration in the past pretty strongly, as noted by Human Events. In 2010, the Intel CEO blasted Democrats in Washington at an Aspen Forum event: Otellini singled out the political state of affairs in Democrat-dominated Washington, saying: “I think this group...

To hear the president tell it, Romney's plan would've been a disastrous failure while his own has been a resounding success and proof of the soundness of his economic policies --- but I have a feeling his recent revisits to the issue may have something to do with the possibility that Michigan may turn out to be a little bit...

    Nicki Minaj thanked President Obama for “understanding” her on Monday, after he expressed doubt that she had actually backed Mitt Romney in a buzzed-about mixtape track.
