    CNN ^ | March 16, 2016 | Gregory Krieg and Jim Acosta
    (CNN)Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski will be among the Republican front-runner's delegates at the party's national convention this summer in Cleveland. A New Hampshire resident, Lewandowski confirmed to CNN Wednesday that he will maintain both roles at the convention. The New York Times first reported that he had listed himself among Trump's 11 New Hampshire delegates and alternates in a signed letter to the secretary of state. Trump enjoys a comfortable lead in the GOP delegate race, but with a complicated road to a nominating majority and the potential for a contested convention ahead, Lewandowski could find himself on...
  • Bush's Relentless Attacks Hurt Rubio In New Hampshire

    02/12/2016 5:05:48 PM PST · by Kaslin · 42 replies ^ | February 12, 2016 | Deroy Murdock
    MANCHESTER, N.H. — The mood at the Radisson Hotel here was restrained Tuesday night, to say the least. Voters and volunteers who backed Senator Marco Rubio (R - Florida) grew increasingly subdued as election returns showed him earning the No. 5 spot in the GOP presidential primary.  Rubio's disappointing 10.6 percent finish must have surprised observers as seasoned as New Hampshire Union Leader editorial-page editor (and Chris Christie supporter) Grant Bosse. Over lunch at the Thirsty Moose Taphouse on Elm Street, he said on Tuesday afternoon: "I don't think Marco will drop below third." No such luck.  Rubio himself acknowledged the problem. Despite the "Marcomentum" after he...

    Jeb Bush's stump speech started to take on a defensive, pleading tone in the days following his sixth-place finish in the Iowa caucuses last week. I know I've been written off, I know the end is near, I know all that stuff," the onetime overwhelming favorite for the Republican presidential nomination told a couple of hundred people in a school cafeteria in Concord. "You know what gives me confidence? New Hampshire. ... I trust you all. I've shown my heart. I've shown the depth of knowledge." Political reporters have been asking him about quitting the race and how his campaign...

    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...

She told CNN that she went to the rally hoping to ask Trump a question about how he would crack down on tax fraud committed by undocumented immigrants. "He truly cares about the American people," she said. She said she did not plan to yell out a vulgarity, but when Trump mentioned Cruz, she said she couldn't help herself.

He said he wanted to dispel the "fiction that Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing. He knows exactly what he's doing." Christie pushed back. And Rubio said: "This notion that Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing is just not true. He knows exactly what he's doing." "There it is," Christie said, "the memorized 25-second speech."...

"Well, I know who they're all saying underperformed on the Internet, and I know the, your coworkers are all saying... but I don't want to say," Trump replied.

    At Saturday night's debate, Republicans wanted Marco Rubio to soar and Donald Trump to stumble. The opposite happened. The Republican establishment's fondest hope before Saturday night's debate was that Marco Rubio would deliver yet another solid (if unmemorable) debate performance, and that Donald Trump would fall on his face - compounding the damage he suffered in Iowa, and surrendering more, if not all, of his lead in New Hampshire over to Rubio, who's in second place and climbing. Instead, the establishment got almost exactly the opposite. The single biggest spoiler wasn't Trump, or even Ted Cruz, but New Jersey Governor...

Murdoch was complimentary of all the candidates on the stage in his first tweet on the subject on Sunday morning, saying all lifted their game. He then said businessman Donald Trump looked more presidential than he has in past debates, and even gave Rubio a good review, though most thought the Florida senator stumbled amid criticism from Chris Christie that he has simply memorized short speeches on various subjects. Murdoch did mention that shortcoming. Murdoch liked Cruz,...

    Florida Sen. Marco Rubio on Sunday touted his debate performance, amid criticism about "scripted" responses and him needing to repeat his opposition to President Obama to defend a sustained attack by GOP presidential rival Chris Christie. Christie, the governor of New Jersey, argued during the Saturday night debate that Rubio would be like Obama if elected -- a freshman senator leading the country with essentially no experience running a government. Rubio said several times during the attack that Obama indeed "knows exactly what he's doing," which is trying to make the country "like the rest of the world." On Sunday,...

    A well-funded Republican super-PAC is intensifying its assault on GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump, preparing to hit the airwaves in New Hampshire and Iowa. By the time its anti-Trump campaign is done, Our Principles PAC will get its messages before nearly every Republican voter in both Iowa and New Hampshire, founder Katie Packer said Thursday in a telephone interview with The Hill. "This is new money," she said when asked whether this campaign should be counted within the more than $1 million of anti-Trump ads already disclosed to the Federal Election Commission by her super-PAC. A larger but undisclosed amount...

    "....The Washington Examiner's Byron York reports on the burgeoning Kaelism among Republican poobahs who were gathered at Saturday's First in the Nation Town Hall in Nashua. "Most of the politicos in Nashua didn't deny that the polls are what they are," York writes. "They just explained that they haven't personally encountered evidence that the Trump-dominated polls are accurate." As one "very well-connected state Republican" says, "I don't see it....I don't feel it. I don't hear it, and I spend part of every day with Republican voters." Former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu and his wife, after racking their brains to...

    In New Hampshire, Trump"s grab-bag of populist positions and singular persona match an ideologically promiscuous electorate, and Trump towers above the field. Speaking for less than an hour to about 1,000 attendees, a hoarse Trump cast himself as a man apart from the entire political system, painting Hillary and Ted and Jeb as beholden to their donors. I am the only one that is funding my own campaign on either side, Democrat or Republican, which makes me feel a little bit lonely, he said.

    At this point, Donald Trump is simply crushing the opposition in the Florida Republican primary, said Kevin Wagner, Ph.D., associate professor of political science at FAU and a research fellow of the Initiative.

    Conway, N.H. - Ted Cruz says the Republican presidential primary has reached a "new phase." He's acting like it, too. Less than a month ago, the Texas senator was predicting the contest would narrow, as it typically has, to a two-man race between a conservative and an establishment favorite. But it turns out 2016 may have surprises in store even for Ted Cruz. On Monday afternoon, as his campaign bus barrels down the highway here, Cruz appears to be surveying an altogether different landscape from the one he'd anticipated: Instead of a potential showdown with Marco Rubio or Jeb Bush,...

    "..."He represents us - tea party America," said Mike Walker, a police officer from nearby New Ipswich, New Hampshire. He wore a Second Amendment button to the event and said protecting gun rights was his priority issue, along with securing the nation's borders. Walker also likes that Cruz has frequently butted heads with Republicans and party leadership. And while he also likes Trump, Walker said he prefers Cruz because he's stronger on gun issues and not as big of a "wildcard" as the billionaire from New York. Cruz's trademark anti-establishment pitch, filled with quotes from scripture and support from evangelical...

    NEW HAMPSHIRE: TRUMP’S LEAD GROWS Cruz, Kasich, Rubio in second tier as Carson fades West Long Branch, NJ – Donald Trump has increased his already sizable lead in the New Hampshire Republican primary while three candidates battle for second place according to the latest Monmouth University Poll.
