  • Team Kasich Appears To Declare War On Trump By Trying To Take Over Ohio GOP

    Hot Air ^ | 02/21/18
    John Kasich has lost considerable power since his failed 2016 presidential run. In addition to having his dream of occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. elude him, he also lost his control of the Ohio Republican Party. Now, it appears that Kasich is trying to regain his vice-like grip on the Ohio Republican Party. This power move by Team Kasich is pitting them squarely against grassroots activists and President Trump’s allies in the battleground state. Kasich’s loss of control over the state party is an important part of the puzzle that is his story. Controlling the party allowed him to exert pressure...
  • Bob Franks in New Jersey (2001 NJ GOPE flashback)

    The New York Times ^ | June 22, 2001 | The New York Times
    Republicans in New Jersey face an unambiguous choice in next Tuesday's gubernatorial primary between a Republican moderate and a candidate with strident and untested views. Bob Franks is clearly the better qualified of the two. Mr. Franks has shown himself to be a pragmatist with the experience and temperament to carry the party's banner admirably in the November election. What was expected to be an easy victory for Mr. Franks has turned into a bitter, close race with name-calling that threatens to discourage voters from showing up. That would be a big mistake, especially for moderate Republicans. Mr. Franks, a...

    NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt released the following statement regarding the future of the GOP brand in New Jersey: . “While I appreciate Assemblyman Bramnick’s desire to speak out about the direction of our State Party, I think it is important to make clear that he does so as an individual and not on behalf of the NJGOP. Our State Republican Organization is a diverse group of individuals and organizations, with multi-­faceted views on a variety of issues. Still, the core principles of the Republican State Committee are to fight for lower taxes and to reduce the intrusion of government into...
  • Jon Bramnick: New Jersey Republicans Are ‘Kinder’ Than Trump

    With former Gov. Chris Christie gone and Republicans holding slimmer minorities in the state legislature, Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick tried Thursday to rebrand the New Jersey GOP. “We’re the Republican Party, but we’re not crazy,” Bramnick said. “We are not crazy or extreme. We’re reasonable.” Bramnick (R-Union) was at times more critical of his own party’s president than the newly sworn-in Democratic governor during a news conference inside the state house with other Assembly Republican leaders. He went out of his way to denounce Trump’s tweets and divisive rhetoric but passed on opportunities to attack Gov. Phil Murphy or...

    Government Shut Down is 85% Fake News , 24/04/2017, by Jon Galt, in Government The temptation to blame the far-left obstructionist democrats for an impending government shut down on April 28 would mean embracing fake news just for a ‘gotcha’ moment. While it may feel good to slam them with their own rhetoric that would make us like them … how repulsive! Now that a non-extremist is occupying the Oval Office we see the other shut-downs in government were also fake news based upon the hissy-fit democrats not getting their way. It’s happening again now except it’s a republican sitting...

    Pro-amnesty GOP Senators are working hand-in-glove with Democrats to block a government budget until President Donald Trump agrees to break his campaign promise and his presidency by amnestying millions of wage-lowering illegal immigrants. The hostage-taking is being fronted by a group of GOP legislators, led by Sen. Jeff Flake and Sen. Lindsey Graham, who announced Wednesday they would not allow 2018 funding for the Pentagon until Trump approves an amnesty, saying:

    Democrat Patty Schachtner won a special election for a state Senate seat in Wisconsin on Tuesday, scoring a huge upset victory for her party in a district that President Donald Trump handily captured just over a year ago. It was the latest in a string of election victories for Democrats since Trump took office, and a sign of hope for the party that the energy from the base and frustration with the president could lead to more wins in November. With every precinct counted, The Washington Post reported that Schachtner, the chief medical examiner for St. Croix County, won by...

    The idea that the corporate media is floating about Mitt Romney “assuming” the senate seat of Orin Hatch is disheartening and underscores the short memories of political pundits who have forgotten the cloud of corruption and crimes that surround Unfit Mitt. We are going to remind you of that history and put into perspective the crimes that Unfit Mitt carried out with seeming impunity. Mitt’s true history cannot be told unless the criminal milieu that he worked within is described beforehand. Only when you get the picture of this crime syndicate and their incredible power and political reach, will you...

Ron DeSantis announced Friday he'll join a crowded field seeking to succeed Gov. Rick Scott, who leaves office in 2019 due to term limits. DeSantis' entry comes after Trump tweeted last month that DeSantis is "a brilliant young leader" who "would make a GREAT governor." The 39-year-old DeSantis is a Navy veteran and graduate of both Yale and...

    Top House Republicans aren't giving up on Obamacare repeal next year, even though Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he's ready to move on. McConnell told NPR on Thursday that he thinks the Senate will “move on to other issues” instead of trying for repeal and replace in 2018. But several top conservatives in the House made it clear they wouldn't mind taking another shot. “I still think there is enough bandwidth on the House side to get it done,” said Rep. Mark Walker, R-N.C., leader of the 170-member conservative Republican Study Committee. The House was able to pass its...

    Reams of ink and gigabytes of pixels have been spilled by folks wringing their hands over the Roy Moore election in Alabama and what it reveals about the lack of character in the Republican Party. These pundits furrow their brows and droop their eyelids over this sad state of affairs, that the family values party would allow the presence of an accused “child molester” like Moore on its ticket. Well, they are right that this abysmal election season has revealed an appalling lack of character in the Republican Party. But it’s in a way that is just about the polar...

    Spirits were high inside the House chamber on Thursday, November 16, when, in the early afternoon, the gavel fell and a measure to rewrite the American tax code passed on a partisan tally of 227 to 205. As the deciding votes were cast—recorded in green on the black digital scoreboard suspended above the floor—the speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, threw his head back and slammed his hands together. Soon he was engulfed in a sea of dark suits, every Republican lawmaker wanting to slap him on the shoulder and be a part of his moment. Ryan was the man...

    Several establishment Republicans cheered as the Alabama Senate Republican candidate Judge Roy Moore lost to his Democratic opponent Doug Jones. Here are some of the establishment Republicans who praised Roy Moore’s loss in the Alabama Senate race on Tuesday: National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) Chairman Cory Gardner (R-CO) said in a statement, “Tonight’s results are clear – the people of Alabama deemed Roy Moore unfit to serve in the U.S. Senate. I hope Senator-elect Doug Jones will do the right thing and truly represent Alabama by choosing to vote with the Senate Republican Majority.”

    After years of strong gains in states across the country, Republicans now fear they stand to lose hundreds of state legislative seats in next year’s midterm elections if there is a significant voter backlash against President Trump. Any losses would come at the worst time: Just ahead of the redistricting process that begins with the 2020 census.

    Fox News host Greg Gutfeld says he hopes Republican Roy Moore loses Tuesday’s special election in Alabama for a U.S. Senate seat. “I hate team-sport politics, and right now this is team-sport politics,” he said on “The Five” on Monday. “The argument is: Moore is bad, but a Democrat is worse, and... it’s a shame, because it shouldn’t be. It doesn’t always have to be a team sport.” He said President Donald Trump throwing his weight behind Moore is part of the “team sport” element of politics. “Even though Trump is endorsing this guy, it’s because he has to, because...

    RUSH: Something that’s got me rather disappointed today. I must admit I’m a bit down. There’s a column by David Brooks in the New York Times today, and the title of the column is “The GOP Is Rotting.” So I figured I had to play prominently in this because I’ve always played prominently in David Brooks columns. I’m always held up as one of the primary perpetrators in the dissolution of the party, the damage to the party. But I didn’t make the cut in this column. Sarah Palin and Fox News are held out today as the primary perps...

Romney argued that having Moore in the U.S. Senate would amount to a stain on the GOP and the nation. Romney tweeted on Monday, “Roy Moore in the US Senate would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation. Leigh Corfman and other victims are courageous heroes.
