    The chairman of CPAC announced that Utah Sen. Mitt Romney is "formally not invited" to the conservative group's annual conference this year. Matt Schlapp, the head of the American Conservative Union, said Romney is not allowed at the event after the Utah Republican voted in favor of summoning witnesses in the Senate impeachment trial of President Trump. Romney was one of two Republicans who joined 47 Democrats in supporting the motion, which failed to pass on Friday. "BREAKING: The 'extreme conservative' and Junior Senator from the great state of Utah, @SenatorRomney is formally NOT invited to #CPAC2020," Schlapp wrote in...

    A former Dairy Queen manager has been charged with involuntary manslaughter, accused of bullying a high school worker who committed suicide just days before Christmas, authorities said. Harley Branham, 21, made her first court appearance Tuesday in connection with the death of Kenny Suttner, 17, who shot himself outside his family’s home on Dec. 21 in Glasgow, Missouri.

    Speaking to a Rotary Club on Monday that his father once addressed as vice president, Jeb Bush admitted that he long resisted visiting New Hampshire before he became a presidential candidate to avoid fueling speculation. But after more than eight months of campaigning here, he said, "I'm a better person, and I'm certainly a better candidate." Something has clicked for Bush in New Hampshire in the past few days. What has transpired by no means guarantees him a top-tier finish in Tuesday's Republican primary here, but the crowds turning out to see him are bigger, his delivery on the stump...

    Sure, Jeb Bush can become a leading Republican presidential candidate. It's gonna be tough, but hardly impossible. More and more, voters want someone with government experience and sound political judgment. As election days get closer, they'll seek more depth and nuance about issues. And Bush and his backers also bring a huge pile of campaign cash and a proven network of insiders well-schooled in politics and policy. Bush remains a long-shot, and polls still show him mired deep in single digits. The good news? "You're seeing a little of that (some gains) now," said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk...

    Jeb Bush found a surefire way to put himself a head above the other candidates during Wednesday night's debate - standing on his tiptoes. As the Republican hopefuls lined up for their group shot, the 6'3" Bush was caught on video glancing at Trump and then sneakily pushing himself up to add a few inches.

    During the rare moments when Stephen Colbert wasn’t talking over him, Jeb! Bush said a couple of things the other night that go a long way to explaining why, with enough campaign cash to pay off the national debt and buy every adult in the lower-48 a Prius, Jeb!’s support as measured in the polls is stuck in the mid-single-digits. Warning: You should be sitting down for this. “I don’t think Barack Obama has bad motives,” Jeb! said. “I just think he’s wrong on a lot of issues.”

    Jeb Bush's pro-gun conservative credentials took a blow on Tuesday as a Telegraph survey showed he is one of the only Republican presidential candidates who does not own a gun. Of the 17 Republican hopefuls vying to lead their party into next year's election only Mr Bush and two other candidates do not have their own firearms. Chris Christie, the governor of New Jersey, does not own a gun while Carly Fiorina, a former business executive and the only woman in the race, has six guns in her house but they belong to her husband.

    “He attacks me every day. With barbarities! This must stop. We must unite as a party and direct barbarities such as Willie Horton ads at the OTHER party. I hope Trump doesn’t try to deport me for speaking in Spanish! Our party needs to be responsible about xenophobia and confine its efforts to things like questioning Obama’s birth certificate. And we surely must not let Trump get away with claiming to be smart at economics. I have claimed that I can deliver a 4% growth rate, so I know an economic charlatan when I see one.

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush tweaked Republican presidential rival Donald Trump on Thursday after the businessman pledged to support the eventual GOP nominee. After Trump posted a tweet touting his pledge not to make a third-party run, Bush replied by including a photo with his own signature under text reading, "Voted Republican since 1972." The barb is part of a continued push from Bush's campaign to point out that Trump has previously been registered as a Democrat and donated to Democrats. “He was a Democrat longer than he was a Republican,” Bush said at a New Hampshire town hall last...

    What we've got here is failure to communicate. Jeb Bush has been stumping his way across the country, explaining what he would do as president. But nobody seems to understand what the heck he's talking about. In July, he said that "people need to work longer hours" as part of an economic recovery. Then he said his remarks had been misinterpreted. A couple of weeks later he said "we need to figure out a way to phase out" Medicare. Then he complained that critics were taking his remarks out of context. That controversy hadn't died down when he started another...

    Donald Trump's misogynistic rant against Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly led to his Republican primary rivals demanding he apologize for the disgusting remarks. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush on Saturday hit the motormouthed mogul for insulting Kelly — and women — at a conservative activists' conference and demanded an apology. "Come on — give me a break. I mean, do we want to win? Do we want to insult 53% of all voters? What Donald Trump said is wrong," Bush said to cheers at the RedState Gathering. The conference's organizer, Erick Erickson, cut Trump from the roster after the billionaire...

    Another ill-advised ad lib from Jeb Bush, another opportunity for Democrats. Looking to curry favor with religious conservatives at the outset of a competitive primary fight, Bush on Tuesday repeated his call to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood — and then he went even further, questioning the amount of government support for women’s health programs generally. The Romneyesque unforced error drew a fast and furious backlash from Democrats, causing Bush to backtrack almost immediately and to acknowledge that he “misspoke.” The controversial comment came as Bush started to acknowledge the importance of federal funding for some women’s health programs,...

    While former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s campaign coffers might be stuffed, the presidential candidate himself is looking quite lean. In his first television interview in the crucial swing state of Iowa, Bush revealed that he has lost about 40 pounds over the last six months “by eating right and working out.” -snip- Bush also discussed the man leading the large GOP pack at the moment: Donald Trump. “You only empower bullies by ignoring them,” Bush said. “You have to stand up to them.”

    Congress will hold the first of several hearings on Obama’s Iran deal this Thursday, with some Democrats likely to join unified Republicans in opposing the disaster negotiated in Vienna. Getting the votes to send a disapproval to Obama’s desk should be doable. The two-thirds majority needed to override a certain Obama veto is harder to obtain, but not impossible. GOP aspirants to the presidency have all expressed opposition to the deal. When he joined the race last Monday, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker promised to end the appeasement scheme with Tehran on “day one” of his administration if elected. (Full disclosure:...

    Monday marks the first in a series of speeches by Jeb Bush “that will outline what his priorities will be as president, beginning with taking on Mount Washington and reforming the way D.C. works” — this according to his campaign. The inaugural speech itself is titled “Taking on Mount Washington,” in fact. While it is an interesting metaphor, the tone and tenor of it also could mark a change in demeanor for Mr. Bush which could help him fend off critics who frame his campaign as inconsequential or tepid.

    It’s clear in context what he meant and ABC did a creditable job in the clip below backing him up with numbers, but a damaging soundbite is halfway around the world before the truth can get its boots on. “My aspiration for the country and I believe we can achieve it, is 4 percent growth as far as the eye can see. Which means we have to be a lot more productive, workforce participation has to rise from its all-time modern lows. It means that people need to work longer hours” and, through their productivity, gain more income for their...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush says he is personally offended by rival Donald Trump's recent remarks about Mexico and immigrants and calls the remarks far outside the mainstream of Republican thought. In spite of earlier criticism from Bush and other Republicans and companies moving to cut business ties to Trump, the real estate mogul has defended his remarks. "I don't think he represents the Republican Party, and his views are way out of the mainstream of what Republicans think," Bush told reporters after marching in Fourth of July parades in New Hampshire.
