    The wife of Orlando nightclub gunman Omar Mateen was arrested by the FBI on Monday in connection with the mass shooting, officials said. Noor Salman was taken into custody in California, where her family lives, but the case is filed in Florida, where her husband massacred 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in June. "I can confirm the arrest did occur," Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on MSNBC. This is a matter that we continue to take very seriously," she said. "We said from the beginning we were going to look at every aspect of this case, every aspect of...

    Marco Rubio is back in the thick of it. The Florida Republican, who reversed his decision to quit the Senate after his losing the GOP presidential nomination, suddenly finds himself at the center of the political intrigue swirling around Donald Trump's nascent administration. Rubio's tough questioning Wednesday of Rex Tillerson, Trump's pick for secretary of state, and unresolved doubts about the former ExxonMobil chief's nomination, present him with a set of provocative political choices.

    Gotta say, although I think Rubio will cave and end up voting for Tillerson reluctantly, the palpable disdain he evinces here for the nominee really has me wondering. You don’t expect resolve from a guy who said in the primaries that Trump was unfit to command the nuclear arsenal and then endorsed him for president a few months later, but it’s hard logically to get from the point A of this clip to the point B of Rubio voting to confirm. And remember, his vote counts more than most: He’s a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which will...

"It is well past time to put an end to the cronyism and deceit that has transformed Washington into a graveyard of good intentions.” Under an amendment the two GOP lawmakers filed on Tuesday, House members would be allowed...

    When word leaked that Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson, a holder of the Order of Friendship award in Putin’s Russia, was Donald Trump’s choice for secretary of state, John McCain had this thoughtful response: “Vladimir Putin is a thug, a bully, and a murderer and anybody else who describes him as anything else is lying.” Yet, Putin is something else, the leader of the largest nation on earth, a great power with enough nuclear weapons to wipe the United States off the face of the earth.

    I don't know how else to describe the joint efforts of the media, the Democrats, and some Republicans to overturn the results of the recent election than to call it a coup attempt. A few thoughts come to mind. First, many here have raised the idea that something like this could trigger a civil war. I agree. But second, it's clear that it's very risky to discuss here or anywhere in public how such a thing could happen in terms of actual strategies or tactics. One thing that can be done, since we haven't yet entirely lost freedom of speech...

    McCain’s attitude doesn’t surprise me. He’s the Senate’s most ardent Russia hawk, he’s 80 years old, and he was just reelected. He’s got nothing to lose in standing up to Trump. Rubio’s attitude does surprise me a little. He’s hawkish and freshly reelected too, but he’s all of 45 years old and is surely planning another presidential run eventually. He backed off his apocalyptic criticism of Trump after the primaries this year, even before he’d decided to run for Senate again, seemingly fearing that any further anti-Trumpism on his part might jeopardize his national prospects down the line.

Trudeau caught flak on social media after expressing "deep sorrow" for Castro, whom he called a "remarkable leader." Cruz and Rubio, who are of Cuban descent, released their own statements ripping the deceased leader. “Is this a real statement or a parody? Because if this is a real statement from the PM of Canada it is shameful & embarrassing,” Rubio tweeted, linking to Trudeau's statement on Castro's death. “Disgraceful," Cruz tweeted of Trudeau's remarks.

    As someone who started in political communications by fighting the Clintons way back in 1992, I'll be forever grateful for every single person who voted for Donald Trump in 2016. It matters not to me whether they were early adapting, pedal to the metal Trumpers -- or lukewarm reluctant Trumpers -- or even late-converting Never Trumpers. Each vote counted as one, and Trump needed almost all of them to once and for all rid us of the Clinton machine. Amen and pass the plate! Moreover, the future of the Supreme Court, not to mention the nation, is radically more optimistic...

    Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., on Friday blasted the Obama administration’s latest Cuba policy shift as one that makes “no sense,” because it foresees some intelligence sharing between the two countries. President Obama last week announced a wide array of changes related to Cuba, including changes further easing trade and travel restrictions Americans face related to Cuba. One set of changes to be implemented by the Treasury Department lifted the limits on the amount of tobacco and alcohol products people can buy in Cuba. But the White House outlined several other changes, including one that said the Director of National Intelligence...

This week, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC) canceled its remaining ad reservations in support of Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-Fla.), a DSCC official confirmed. The move was first reported by the Miami Herald. Earlier this year, the DSCC reserved $10 million to help Murphy, who faces an uphill battle against Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). The committee has previously shifted money out of the state to invest more heavily in late-breaking Senate races, such as in...

Rubio during his failed bid for the Republican nomination, Mr. Levin now says “Rubio has a solid record” and echoed the praises from Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, a former presidential rival who also endorsed Rubio’s bid for reelection. “I support Senator Marco Rubio for reelection to the U.S. Senate as well,” he wrote. “The Senator has reversed his position on whether or not to run again, and I see his change...

    I have already posted on here about Paul Nehlen who is a terrific candidate attempting to Cantor Paul Ryan. Nehlen is gaining some traction, but someone who people have been less focused on primarying (probably because he just announced he is running) is Marco Rubio. As we know, Marco Rubio has "endorsed" Trump while continuing to waver and make negative comments about him to the media. This is no way to get the party behind your nominee. Here is some info about Carlos Berulo: A father, husband and Florida businessman, Carlos Beruff is a proud representation of the American Dream....

    It took less than 48 hours for Marco Rubio to nearly clear the field in what had been a crowded GOP U.S. Senate primary. One after another, Republican candidates — some who had campaigned for more than a year — dropped out last week rather than face Rubio, one of the GOP’s leading figures nationwide. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio reversed course this week, and is seeking re-election. The last Republican standing in the way of Rubio claiming the nomination is a brash Manatee County homebuilder who has drawn comparisons to Donald Trump. Carlos Beruff seems determined to fight on regardless...

    WASHINGTON - Just last week Florida Sen. Marco Rubio announced that he would seek re-election after a long presidential primary battle that saw him finish third to Donald Trump. Now it seems with the August GOP primary coming fast it seems that his biggest challenge on paper, could be someone who looks lot like Donald Trump. We know that there is no love lost between Rubio and the presumptive Republican 2016 presidential nominee. Now enter billionaire Carlos Beruff, who has endorsed Trump, he's espoused some of the same controversial beliefs, and may even have the backing of Florida Gov. Rick...

    Only one person stands in the way of Marco Rubio merging from August's Senate primary victorious--and on paper, he looks a lot like Donald Trump Millionaire Carlos Beruff has endorsed Trump, he's espoused some of the same controversial beliefs, they both have allies in Florida Gov. Rick Scott, and hasn’t been afraid to pour their millions into their bids. And while Rubio's decision to reverse course and run for reelection this week all-but cleared the field and has made him the heavy favorite, Beruff has refused to go quietly. “The voters of Florida can reelect Washington’s candidate, who has consistently...
