    Call me a snowflake, but I need my safe space from David Hogg news. Everywhere I turn this little puke is there. Every time I see some creepy picture of him, my blood pressure rises. We know he is a fraud enjoying his expansive free media coverage. Can stop giving him that coverage here. Hopefully he will be gone in a month and we can move on.

    The Democratic Party is carrying more than $6 million in debt, according to year-end filings and has just $6.5 million in the bank. Do the math, and the party is working with just over $400,000 overall. Meanwhile, the Republicans are swimming in pools of money. The Republican National Committee had raised $132 million by the end of 2017 about twice as much as the DNC and entered 2018 with almost $40 million to spare, with

    The DNC Unity Commission is going about as well as last year's unity tour. Tom Perez took over as Democratic National Committee chair in February and hoped to bring the wings of the party together, hoping to prove that Hillary Clinton supporters and Bernie Sanders supporters can get along. Instead, he was met with boos and heckles by frustrated liberals who believe the DNC rigged the primary for Hillary. That theory got plenty of traction from Donna Brazile's bombshell of a book. Failing to hold a fair election is bad enough, but according to one outspoken Democrat at the DNC...

    The Republican National Committee is reinstating its support of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore after initially cutting ties over allegations of sexual misconduct, The Hill confirmed on Monday. Breitbart News first reported that the RNC had decided to step back into the race just hours after President Trump fully endorsed the candidate. Two sources confirmed RNC's renewed support. "We can confirm our involvement in the Alabama Senate race," an RNC official told The Hill. A second source close to the RNC told The Hill that "the Breitbart story is real." Trump endorsed Moore in a tweet that blasted out to...

    The Republican National Committee (RNC) is now again backing Judge Roy Moore, the GOP nominee for the U.S. Senate in Alabama. The RNCs decision to now publicly support Moore again comes in the wake of President Donald Trumps wholehearted endorsement of Moore on Monday morning. We stand with the president, a senior RNC official told Breitbart News. The RNC notified the RNC members from Alabama on Monday afternoon that the national party would resume financial support to back the state party in its efforts to elect Moore to the U.S. Senate. At this time, since this development is fresh, it...

    The national party pulls out of a fundraising pact with the Alabama candidate, further isolating him. The Republican National Committee is withdrawing its support for besieged Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, leaving him increasingly isolated as he confronts charges of sexual misconduct with teenagers. The RNC is pulling out of a joint fundraising agreement it had with Moore, according to a senior party official briefed on the decision. It is also canceling a field program it had set up ahead of the states Dec. 12 special election. The committee had about a dozen paid canvassers in Alabama working for Moore....

    A day after explosive allegations of sexual assault surfaced against Alabama senate candidate Roy Moore, the Republican Partys senate campaign arm has severed financial ties with the embattled former state supreme court justice. A joint fundraising committee benefitting Moore and a handful of Republican Party organs filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission on Friday removing the National Republican Senatorial Committee as one of its beneficiaries. Going forward, the committees fundraising will benefit Moores Senate campaign, the Alabama Republican Party, and the Republican National Committee but not the NRSC.

    I just received a call from the RNC in DC asking for a donation. Normally I don't pick up on these calls but this morning, after reading the Breitbart article on Session, I answered the call. Before the woman could continue her sales pitch, I said, "I'm not sending the Republican Party another dime until Sessions is replaced and the DOJ prosecutes the Clintons". The woman's started speaking, "Well, you know sir..." My response. "Click". Maybe if they get enough responses like this, they'll get the message. What can I say, I'm an optimist.

    The national GOPs director of evangelical outreach is quitting, and lodging complaints about what he calls the partys tone deaf attitude toward a crucial Republican voting bloc. Chad Connelly, who served as the Republican National Committees director of faith engagement for the last four years, announced his resignation in an email circulated to close friends late Thursday. He complained that religious outreach has not been prioritized at the RNC under the leadership structure implemented by President Donald Trumps White House. The treatment I received from the new political department has been disrespectful, antagonistic and unacceptable, Connelly wrote in an email...

    Thursday on Bloomberg Markets, Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said she shared the same mission of getting a better majority for the president going into 2018 with the former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon. Bannon has announced publicly he was targeting some Republican senators who support Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). McDaniel said, The great thing about the RNC is we stayed neutral and primaries for this very reason. When you have divisive primaries, and it is competitive, and tempers or emotions flare, we need to bring people together after the primary and let our purpose unite us...

    Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh said this week that Breitbart News Executive Chairman and former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon is taking over the role of the Republican Party as he looks to support conservative challengers to establishment lawmakers in 2018. I think what Bannon is doing is slowly but surely taking over the role of the Republican Party, and people joining Bannon are [doing the same], he said Wednesday. The Republican Party is obviously not with [President] Trump on balance you have some in the House who are but the Republican Party on balance is not...

    Fueled by a string of fundraising appeals from President Trump to his supporters, the Republican Party is on track to raise more money from small-dollar contributions than it has collected in more than a decade. The influx of cash from Trumps base is helping the GOP amass a major advantage as the parties prepare to battle for control of Congress in the 2018 elections, with the Republican National Committee pulling in nearly twice as much money overall as its Democratic counterpart this year. The RNCs success with small donors illustrates how the Republican Party, long a center of the political...

    And now we face the final test: the debt ceiling. Will we or wont we stop the spending madness? Will the Republicans enact the cuts theyve promised, or will they now be the ones to kick the can, piling evermore trillions of dollars of debt on their own grandchildren? By every indication thats precisely what they plan to do. The signal has come from President Trump, from Speaker Ryan, and from Majority Leader McConnell. The debt ceiling will be raised and no fiscal sanity will be restored. There is no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Put them together. They are...

    The Republican National Committee paid the Trump International Hotel in Washington $122,000 last month after the party held a lavish fundraiser at the venue in June, the latest example of how GOP political committees are generating a steady income stream for President Trump's private business, new Federal Election Commission records show. At least 25 congressional campaigns, state parties and the Republican Governors Association have together spent more than $473,000 at Trump hotels or golf resorts this year, according to a Washington Post analysis of campaign finance filings. Trump's companies collected an additional $793,000 from the RNC and the president's campaign...
