    ....“I don’t know how you get around that this wasn’t a referendum on the administration, I just don’t," Taylor told reporters at Gillespie's election night party. "Some of the very divisive rhetoric really prompted and helped usher in a really high Democratic turnout... "I’m telling you that from someone who is from Virginia, who watched these races, who watched people lose tonight against opponents who are completely no name.” ....Taylor admitted that Trump could threaten the GOP's House majority. When asked whether Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) would retain his speakership if Trump doesn't moderate, Taylor said it was an "interesting...

    In an interview with Vice’s Shawna Thomas, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), the former chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, hit back at critics suggesting she tilted her party’s primary process in favor of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT). “I will be frank with you,” she said. “If I was trying to rig the outcome of the primary, trust me, I could have — there are so many things that we, not I, we could have done to enhance the campaign of one candidate over another.”

  • Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo Introduces Gun Control Bill for Bump Stocks (Goes beyond bump stocks)

    Breitbart ^ | Oct 10, 2017 | AWR Hawkin
    Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) put forward a gun control bill Tuesday designed to ban the manufacture, sale, or possession of bump stock accessories in the United States. Breitbart News reported that Barack Obama’s ATF approved bump stocks for sale because they are accessories, not conversion devices. In other words, they do not convert a semiautomatic into an automatic. Curbelo gets around this with legislation that bans accessories that “increase the rate of fire of a semiautomatic 16 rifle but [do] not convert” it into an automatic. ... Curbelo’s bill, which is yet to be titled, focuses on accessories that speed...
  • Vanity - Democrats disappear in Alabama Primary.

    08/15/2017 8:01:59 PM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 16 replies
    There are, according to the SOS of Alabama, 3,281,781 registered voters within the state. When the final tallies of the total votes cast in the primary election tonight are revealed, roughly 12-20 percent of eligible voters voted, about 400,000 for Republicans and a paltry 150,000 for Democrats. I suspect a good number of illegal and fraud Democrat voters refrained from voting for obvious reasons, but, no will ever know what that number was or is. I just think many Democrats just sat on their hands and did not turn out to vote. Good news for Trump & Company. Devastating news...
  • Alabama Senate Primary tonight. Polls close 8PM. Brooks, Strange, Moore (LIVE THREAD)

    Decision Desk HQ ^ | August 15, 2017
    Race Preview After weeks of ads, mostly on behalf of incumbent Senator Luther Strange, the votes start rolling in tonight after 8pm EDT. Strange faces strong competition from former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who has led him in the polling average by about 5-6 points, and from Huntsville Congressman Mo Brooks, who has trailed Strange in the average by a little over the same margin. If polling is correct, Strange and Moore will advance to the September 26th runoff. We anticipate the first results will roll in within thirty minutes of polls closing. We’ll have comparison charts...

    Voters in Alabama head to the polls on Tuesday to choose Republican and Democratic nominees for a U.S. Senate seat, in a race that has been dominated by debate over President Donald Trump. Nine Republicans and seven Democrats are competing in the respective primaries, with little expectation that any candidate will reach the 50 percent threshold needed to avoid a runoff election next month between the top two vote-getters in each contest. The outcome in the Republican primary could give an indication whether Trump remains popular nine months after he easily won Alabama in the presidential election. Luther Strange is...

Voters will go to the polls today in the first step towards deciding Alabama's next U.S. Senator.

    Will Paul Ryan be “Cantored” by a bike rider with arm tattoos in his 2018 primary challenge or be taken out in the general by a Democrat whose twitter bona fides cover important coalition pools such as Father, Army veteran, Ironworker, cancer survivor? Paul Nehlen, who lost to Ryan in their primary race, called the Speaker "a soulless globalist from the Democrat Wing of the Uni-Party!" The Everyman businessman from Delaven with a very impressive business profile drove a big yellow dump truck all around their southeastern WI district emblazoned with "Get the DIRT on Ryan at DumpPaulRyan.com."

    The Washington Times ^ | June 17, 2017 | Stephen Dinan and Seth McLaughlin
    Pollsters had major trouble spotting the surge of support for Corey Stewart in Virginia’s Republican governor’s primary this week, suggesting they still can’t figure out how to successfully survey Trump supporters. Mr. Stewart, chairman of the Prince William Board of County Supervisors and onetime Trump campaign chairman in Virginia, ran as the Trump figure in the race, pursuing an anti-establishment message that centered around a tough approach to illegal immigration. Polling — which was strikingly infrequent — showed Mr. Stewart failing to crack 20 percent support, trailing Ed Gillespie, the putative front-runner, by as much as 27 percent. In the...

    Conservative Ralph Norman has beaten the more centrist, establishment candidate for the Republican nomination for an open U.S. House seat in South Carolina and now faces the task of keeping the seat in GOP hands. The State Election Commission certified the results of this week’s runoff election after a recount Friday. Not a single vote changed from Tuesday’s count. Norman finished with a 221-vote win out of more than 35,000 ballots cast. Norman defeated Tommy Pope, the second-ranking Republican in the state House and a prosecutor who received national fame for prosecuting child killer Susan Smith nearly 23 years ago....

    State Sen. Frank Wagner, a Republican candidate for governor, said Monday he'd like to turn much of U.S. 58 into an interstate as part of his plan to juice transportation construction in Virginia with an increase in the gas tax. The increase, part of a tiered plan that would charge more per gallon when prices are low, then roll back the rate when prices rise, wouldn't just affect rates in Hampton Roads or Northern Virginia, which have regional taxes. It would be statewide in implementation and effect, Wagner said. Wagner is charting an unusual course in this GOP primary: running...
  • South Carolina U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford: Trump threatened to back primary challenger against me

    WASHINGTON — Against the backdrop of crumbling negotiations over the GOP bill to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, President Donald Trump said last week he wanted to oust incumbent U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford in 2018. The South Carolina Republican told The Post and Courier that Trump chose to convey this message through an intermediary: White House budget chief Mick Mulvaney, a former member of the S.C. congressional delegation, co-founder of the House Freedom Caucus and a friend. "'The president asked me to look you square in the eyes and to say that he hoped that you voted ‘no’...

Those will be fleshed out in next year’s legislature session.

    Former presidential candidate Carly Fiorina and national radio host Laura Ingraham are polling dead even in the Virginia Senate race, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Friday. The two would face off in a Republican Primary before challenging Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine, who recently concluded his bid for vice president under Hillary Clinton. Both Fiorina and Ingraham are polling at 36 percent in a head-to-head against Kaine. Kaine fared better over Fiorina, earning 57 percent compared to her 36 percent, one percent better than he fared against Ingraham. Kaine earned 56 percent against the conservative radio host. Neither woman was...

    Beyond the melodrama of Sen. Hillary Clinton's tears-on-her-pillow triumph in New Hampshire and her gaming victory in Nevada lies the profoundly disturbing question of the Clintons' hidden record of suspected crimes. It's that very record which likely prompted Sen. John Kerry's sudden endorsement of Sen. Barack Obama just two days after Mrs. Clinton's first primary win, followed by two more supportive votes from ranking congressional Democrats. Their swift response was a clear sign that ranking Democratic colleagues are determined to derail Mrs. Clinton. Why? Because there exists a vault of information American voters are not aware of concerning the Clintons...
