    Democrats again fell just short in a closely-watched election as Heath Mello lost the Omaha mayoral race on Tuesday after a fierce debate within the national party over his anti-abortion views. His loss was a setback for supporters who argued that the Democratic National Committee and abortion rights groups were wrong to attack the anti-abortion former state senator. It was also another near miss for Democrats fighting in typically Republican territory since Donald Trump’s presidential election victory. Democrats lost a special election for a House seat in Kansas and narrowly missed an outright win in a special election in Georgia....

    French mayor Robert Ménard has been fined by the government for hate speech after mentioning that French children were being “replaced” in schools. Mr. Ménard, who serves as the mayor of Béziers, was sentenced to a fine of 2,000 euros for the comments he made on Twitter in September of 2016, France 24 reports. The independent mayor, who is supported by the Front National, then told local television station LCI a few days after making the post: “In a class in the city centre of my town, 91 per cent of the children are Muslims. Obviously, this is a problem....

  • Sanctuary City Mayor Battles Tucker: Policing 'Easy For White Men Like Us'

    Mayor Virgil Bernero (D) of Lansing, Michigan debated Tucker Carlson on the legitimacy of Attorney General Jeff Sessions' plan to withhold federal funds from cities that won't enforce federal immigration law. Carlson reported that despite Sessions' warnings, Lansing voted to become a sanctuary city, and he asked Bernero when it was OK to defy any federal law in such a way. Bernero said that it is never proper to do so, and added that his executive order on the topic abides by federal law. He invited Sessions and President Trump to advise him anytime on how to increase public safety...
  • Pro-Refugee Mayor of Rutland, VT Humiliated in Stunning Re-Election Bid Defeat

    “Five-term incumbent Mayor Chris Louras of Rutland, Vermont was defeated this Town Meeting Day. He lost to Alderman Dave Allaire by a margin of 52 percent to 34 percent. Allaire swept all four wards,” WCAX reported Tuesday night. “Louras had beaten Allaire in two previous mayoral elections,” Seven Days Vermont reported. It was not even close on Tuesday, as Louras (pictured) was crushed in a humiliating defeat that was as much a rejection of his personal character as it was of his pro-refugee policies. Louras made headlines last year when it was reported that, beginning in 2015, he secretively attempted...

    The mayor of New York City just may be the second most powerful elected position in U.S. politics, only behind the presidency. Located inside City Hall in the heart of Manhattan's bustling and brightly lit Broadway, the Big Apple's mayoral office is arguably the most influential in the world. And it looks like Hillary Clinton has her eyes all over it. The former Democratic candidate who won the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election but lost in a shocking electoral upset to President Donald Trump has reportedly been flirting with the idea of a run for New York City...

    ALMOST 50,000 people have signed a petition to remove Sadiq Khan as London mayor over his controversial Brexit stance. They are angry at the Labour politician for wanting London to have a bespoke Brexit deal after Article 50 is triggered. Mr Khan has urged the Government to give the capital "a voice at the table" during upcoming negotiations with Brussels. And he wants to introduce special work visa for migrants coming to work in London. More than 47,000 have signed Matthew Lee's petition on Change.org calling for the Mayor to be removed. He claims Mr Khan's comments are encouraging the...

    The mayor of Cincinnati has declared his municipality to be a sanctuary city, which will now protect illegal aliens from federal immigration officers. Mayor John Cranley announced, alongside Muslim, Jewish and Christian religious leaders, that his city would “stand in solidarity with the immigrant community,” and declare itself a sanctuary city, despite the threat of losing federal funding under President Donald Trump’s administration. “This city stands with immigrants,” Cranley said during the live press conference. “This city stands with Muslims. This city stands with Syrian refugees yearning to break free.” “This city opposes executive orders to halt refugee resettlement and...

    Mayor Andy Ginther countered President Donald Trump's executive order with one of his own. The mayor said Columbus will be a welcoming place for immigrants and refugees and city resources won't be used to enforce immigration laws. The executive order comes just days after Trump banned immigrants from seven majority-Muslim nations. That ban led to large protests over the weekend at John Glenn International Airport. About 50 protesters demonstrated outside City Hall Monday evening calling on Columbus to designate itself a "sanctuary city". Ginther's executive order stops short of that but the protesters said they supported the steps he took.

    Fearing a loss of millions of dollars for defying immigration authorities, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez on Thursday ordered county jails to comply with federal immigration detention requests — effectively gutting the county’s position as a “sanctuary” for immigrants in the country illegally. Gimenez cited an executive order signed Wednesday by President Donald Trump that threatened to cut federal grants for any counties or cities that don’t cooperate fully with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Since 2013, Miami-Dade has refused to indefinitely detain inmates who are in the country illegally and wanted by ICE — not based on principle, but because the...

    Hillary Clinton is seriously considering a run for New York mayor, according to a major city political insider, who claims she’s “50-50.” Supermarket magnate John Catsimatidis said he talked to the failed Democratic presidential nominee, and came away convinced she may try to resurrect her political career by challenging Mayor Bill de Blasio this year. “I spoke to her about it, but she didn’t indicate or signal to me [whether she would run]. She didn’t say never, she didn’t say no. In my personal opinion, it’s 50-50,” the billionaire owner of Gristedes Foods told The Real Deal real estate blog...

Asked whether he'd support Catsimatidis, who hosts the station's "Cats Roundtable" on Sunday mornings, Fossella said, "In a heartbeat. John is an American success story. He loves this country and never forgot where he came from. Works like I've never seen anybody work before and truly loves people, loves this city, loves this country and deserves to be elected to whatever...
