    The Federalist ^ | SEPTEMBER 26, 2018
    Democratic congressional candidate Donna Shalala is struggling to keep up with her Trump-supporting Republican rival in a district that overwhelmingly favored Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election. The 77-year-old Shalala, who served as Department of Health and Human Services secretary for the Clinton administration, was supposed to easily snag a win in Florida’s 27th Congressional District and become the “second-oldest House freshman in history,” but recent polls indicate she’s neck and neck with her Republican opponent, Maria Elvira Salazar. In November 2016, voters in the Miami-based 27th District cast a ballot in favor of Clinton by a margin of...

Tirado, 52, tells television station WPTV that she was fired on September 14 when she refused to follow the policy after several students didn't turn in a homework project she had assigned two weeks earlier. Before leaving,...

    Many politicians in Washington, D.C. are more concerned with getting elected than with governing this country. Veterans see this as something that goes against their spirit. They served in the military to protect and defend, and now they want a chance to serve in Congress to fight for their fellow Americans. Their mission is to get results and not constantly be lame-duck representatives. One such candidate is Michael Waltz, who is running in Florida's District 6, the seat Ron DeSantis currently holds as he runs for governor. He interviewed with American Thinker about why he is running for office. He...

    The new NBC News-Wall Street Journal survey, taken six weeks before Americans head to the polls, shows Democrats leading Republicans by 52 percent to 40 percent for control of Congress. If it holds, that 12 percentage point margin would suggest a "blue wave" large enough to switch control of not just the House but also the Senate.
