    Pennsylvania Sen. Pat Toomey endorsed Marco Rubio for president Wednesday, describing the Florida senator as a "thoughtful conservative leader" he believes will appeal to voters in Pennsylvania and across the country. Just hours later, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum quit the presidential race and also endorsed Rubio, calling him a "born leader" who shares his views on the central role of the family and on the national security threats facing the country. The support from Toomey and Santorum comes as Rubio is seeking to solidify backing from the GOP establishment after his third-place finish in Iowa. Toomey, a Republican from...

    The Washington Post ^ | February 3, 2016 | Katie Zezima
    HENNIKER, N.H. - For months, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) has tried to poach libertarian-leaning voters here away from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.). Now, with Paul's exit from the race, Cruz has even more of an opening to make inroads with supporters of the Kentucky Republican. Cruz is running as a tea-party darling and evangelical Christian, constituencies that helped propel him to victory in the Iowa caucuses. But he is also attempting to expand that base, particularly with libertarian-leaning supporters. Here in New Hampshire, Cruz speaks of limited government, gun rights and privacy. "But part of the reason we're more competitive...

    On June 6, 2012—the 68th anniversary of D-Day—a statue of Maj. Dick Winters was unveiled in the Normandy village of Sainte-Marie-du-Mont. Winters was the commander of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division after they parachuted into Normandy on June 6, 1944. His heroism and leadership was documented in the Stephen Ambrose book and mini-series "Band of Brothers". A young student named Jordan Brown—who lives just a few miles from Winters' Pennsylvania home—raised $99,000 selling armbands stamped with a phrase Winters used: "Hang Tough." The money was used to help pay for the statue of the late Mr....

After joking that Rick Santorum was desperately trying to not stand directly behind the Trump campaign podium at the so-called event for veterans, Todd mentioned that he was there for awhile before coming back to the debate site and noticed that...

    Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) -- Gov. Matt Bevin (R) claimed Thursday that Planned Parenthood is performing illegal and unlicensed abortions in Kentucky. He spoke to reporters and photographers during an unrelated event in Louisville. "I've always been a very strongly unapologetic pro-life individual," Bevin said. "To that end, that has not changed. What I tell you is interesting, and this is just breaking news even today, is that Planned Parenthood is illegally performing abortions in Kentucky." He went on to say, "It's that brazen disregard for the law that is going to be hammered down. There is no tolerance whatsoever for...

    Moderator Martha MacCallum twisted facts during the GOP undercard debate in Iowa when she turned to pro-life former Sen. Rick Santorum and asked, "Carly Fiorina was the only one of the GOP candidates to attend the March for Life in Washington last week. Where were you?" The premise of MacCallum's question was deceptive, at best. As Breitbart News reported, Fiorina was the only GOP presidential candidate invited to speak at the March for Life on January 22. The committee that organizes the march set the theme of "Pro-Life, Pro-Woman Go Hand-in-Hand" as a way to counter the "war on women"...

    Rick Santorum said he will reconsider his presidential campaign if he fails to finish "ahead of the pack that's sitting in single digits right now" in the Iowa caucuses next week. "If the people of Iowa put their faith in me, we're going to continue on," Santorum told the Des Moines Register Sunday. The former Pennsylvania senator surprised pollsters with his narrow victory in Iowa in 2012. But eight days ahead of the Iowa caucuses, Santorum sits at just 1.2 percent in the Hawkeye State, according to the RealClear average of Republican polls.

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) -- Long optimistic about U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey winning a second term in Pennsylvania, Republicans now have something to worry about -- and it is not necessarily a strong Democratic Party challenger. Rather, a number of top Pennsylvania Republicans are fretting about a divisive Republican presidential nominee souring the state's moderate, swing voters against Toomey -- not to mention other Republican candidates on the ballot -- and dooming his re-election bid in November. The stakes are tremendous, with Democrats hoping to retake control of the U.S. Senate....

While Democrats Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton continue to defend the horrors of abortion, Republicans Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina, and Ben Carson took to social media. Recognizing the tragedy of over 58 million lives lost, these candidates explained why they stand for life. Donald Trump, however, has been silent on abortion, the March for Life, and Roe v. Wade all day. He is the only GOP front runner to avoid making a statement. Issues concerning Trump’s pro-abortion past continue...

The storm is expected to deliver heavy snowfall to at least 15 states, and heavy ice accumulations, strong winds and coastal flooding will add to the storm's impact as it carves a path from the nation's heartland through the South and onward to the East Coast now through Sunday.

The National Weather Service issued the blizzard watch late Wednesday morning for Washington, D.C., and nearby Baltimore. The watch...

    On January 13, Kathie Lee Gifford and Today Show co-host Hoda Kotb interviewed actor Dean Cain on his current television show as well as his upcoming role in a movie due out this year which depicts the horrific crimes on women and their babies by abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Gosnell ran a filthy, un-inspected abortion clinic in West Philadelphia for decades. During that time he killed women, delivered viable babies alive and killed them by severing their spinal cords with scissors, and seriously injured women, leaving them unable to have children. In 2013, Gosnell was convicted of first-degree murder in the...

    Symbolism doesn't get much more chilling than this. Serious efforts are underway to abrogate the First and Second Amendments, in the name of "campaign finance reform" and "commonsense gun safety" - both euphemisms masking the tyrannical impulses of the left. At such a time, to demolish the site where the Bill of Rights were first proposed is unnerving, to say the least. But government incompetence, rather than some sinister plot, seems to be at the root of it. Phyllis Zimmerman of The Sentinel of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania reports: On Jan. 6, workers began demolishing a two-story stone house at 7086...

    Donald Trump is saying he can win a number of states not easily won by a Republican. So, is this just a boast or something to keep Hillary Clinton and Fox News awake at night? The big prizes among these states are Florida and New York with their 29 Electoral votes. Trump can take New York because: A) he gets 25% of the Black vote, a fact which is not even challenged anymore, B) he is getting 45% of Hispanics, C) the conviction of Sheldon Silver, the most powerful Democrat in the state and the likely indictment of Democrat Governor...

    As easily as he slid into office with no qualifications for the post, Obama is falling from grace with fate and the voters. His dishonesty and incompetence are too patent. This week, no sooner had his relatively sparsely viewed presser ended and his clearly manufactured tears about gun violence dried, than his central argument -- that gun control, not fighting Islamic terrorism, should be our priority -- was exposed as nonsense. A thug, who had stolen a gun from a cop, used it in Philadelphia to try to assassinate a law enforcement officer. Echoing Obama Philadelphia's Democratic Mayor declared Jim...

    Philadelphia high school senior Michael Moroz knew he was courting controversy when he wrote about race in the school newspaper, but he never expected death threats from classmates and strangers. Just before Christmas break, the 17-year-old wrote an opinion piece for the Central High school paper, the Centralizer. In it, he criticized the racially charged University of Missouri protests and opined that Michael Brown, the black teenager killed in 2014 by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo., was "a delinquent" who was "at worst, justifiably killed, and at best, [was] a thug." The story hit the paper’s Facebook page...
