  • Donald Trump Adds $10 Million of His Own Money for Advertising

    10/28/2016 9:07:02 AM PDT · by UKrepublican · 10 replies
    Donald Trump, seeking to boost momentum in the last days of the presidential election, wired $10 million of his own money into his presidential campaign Friday morning, two advisers said. The cash infusion will be used to buy $25 million in new TV advertising in key battleground states, the advisers said. With some polls tightening in recent days, the Republican nominee is determined to pull out a win 11 days from now, one aide said. Mr. Trump’s cash infusion brings his total contributions to his campaign to $66 million. That includes about $30,000 he gave earlier this month in in-kind...

    There aren’t many states more important this November than North Carolina, a rapidly changing state crucial to Donald J. Trump’s hopes of winning the White House and to Democrats’ hopes of winning the Senate. If Mr. Trump does not win the state, his path to the presidency – already narrow – becomes nearly impossible. There also aren’t many states with better election data than North Carolina. The state releases detailed, individual-level information on every voter in the state. It even publishes a daily account of who has voted early, either in person or by mail. To get a better sense...

    The revelations from James O’Keefe’s videos about Brad Woodhouse and his group inspired one of my associates to make a comparison to the Carolina Rising affair of 2014 and 2015. You may remember that Dallas Woodhouse headed up something called Carolina Rising during the campaign of 2014 — prior to his ascension to the top staff position at NCGOP HQ. Carolina Rising was touted as a PAC aimed at promoting Republican fortunes in the state. The PAC earned itself some unwanted attention on Election Eve 2014 thanks to a TV interview involving Dallas. Dallas boasts on camera that he and...

Jensen attributed McCrory’s turnabout in favorable job approval to his handling of Hurricane Matthew. “There's little that's better for a Governor's approval ratings than a Hurricane that...

    Barack Obama and Democrats lied for years about how Obamacare would save you money and not affect your health care choices. Obama famously told Americans, “You can keep your plan if you like your plan.” That was probably the most memorable line of his presidency – and it was a bald faced lie. Obamacare was forced into law with 100% of the votes coming from Democratic lawmakers. This week we learned premiums would increase an average of 22% this year. Here are the average increase in premiums in battleground states. -Ohio: 13.12% increase -Florida: 17.40% increase -Pennsylvania: 32.5% increase -Nevada:...

    Hillary Clinton’s campaign is touting some “eye-popping” advantages in early voting, in an apparent effort to energize Democratic voters, but preliminary figures suggest the race remains tighter than her aides acknowledge. The preliminary numbers appear to show Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, with an edge in several of the roughly 10 battleground states that will decide the 2016 White House race. “We're seeing eye-popping vote-by-mail application numbers,” Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook said on “Fox News Sunday.” In Arizona and North Carolina, for example, more registered Democrats than Republicans have indeed cast early ballots.

Clinton was “mobbed” at the early voting location at Chavis Community Center, Reuters reporter Luciana Lopez tweeted today. North Carolina AIDS Action Network Executive Director Lee Storrow posted a photo, noting Clinton was “hanging at the polling site.” Her appearance is potentially a violation of state and local election laws.

It is imperative that the vote accurately reflects the will of our citizens. Many on the left, however, are unconcerned with the protection of each individual’s vote.

Trump had bragged about sexual assault roiled the race.
