    Kevin Nicholson, a former Marine Corps combat veteran who is running for Senate in Wisconsin, announced a strong start in his fundraising since he threw his hat into the race to take on Democratic junior Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) two months ago. Nicholson’s campaign announced Tuesday that he has raised over $400,000 in the third quarter from over 1,850 donations at under $220 each on average. According to his campaign, more than 1,500 donations were $100 or less. “The fundraising total was accomplished in a little more than two months since Kevin launched his campaign at the end of July,...

    West Virginia Attorney General and U.S. Senate candidate Patrick Morrisey spoke with Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Friday regarding his campaign, including his recent endorsement by pro-President Trump Super PAC Great America Alliance. Morrisey also discussed his tenure as attorney general, saying, “The reason I want to run for Senate is Washington is utterly broken.” He also talked about his record of going after the Obama administration for what he called “stupid regulations.” “We can start to clean up these terribly burdensome regulations. We can make the tax code much simpler, much flatter, so that it works...
  • Hardball: McConnell Changes Rule to Overcome Obstruction of Trump's Judicial Picks, Dems Fume

    This may seem like an abstruse parliamentary maneuver -- and it is -- but Mitch McConnell just escalated the judicial wars in a minor but meaningful way. If frustrated conservatives want the GOP Senate majority to " start acting like one ," McConnell's decision eliminates a lever Democrats have been using to stymie some of President Trump's judicial picks. In that sense, he's very much acting like a majority leader; a Democratic one. Try not to let your eyes glaze over as you read the details of this move, which involves dramatically reducing the power of so-called "blue slips"...

    Miller suggested that given Corker’s newfound willingness to criticize the Trump and his reluctance to support his agenda, Corker should step aside and allow Gov. Bill Haslam (R-TN) to appoint Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), who announced she would seek that seat in the U.S. Senate last week.
  • Jeff Flake is the Latest Anti-Trump Republican to Suffer in the Polls

    Townhall.com ^ | October 7, 2017 | Timothy Meads - AP
    The Associated Press published a piece today highlighting Senator Jeff Flake's free fall in the polls in Arizona's tense Republican primary contest. Flake has seen dwindling support ever since he published his anti-Trump book, Conscience of a Conservative. That book criticized the Republican party for not standing up to then candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 GOP presidential primary. In the book, he says Trump does not have the conservative accolades nor character needed to run the Republican party. In essence, Flake argued that the Republican party "lost its way" by electing Trump. The conservative voters of Arizona, however,...

    *** Following an exclusive interview with Bossie on Thursday, Breitbart News reported: “We support Patrick Morrisey for Senate because he has a proven record of results fighting for conservative West Virginia values and against the harmful liberal agenda of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton,” Bossie added. “Attorney General Morrisey was there to take on executive overreach at the Obama Environmental Protection Agency for the coal miners and he’s been there to support President Trump’s agenda taking on sanctuary cities and pushing for much needed tax reform. I look forward to working with Patrick Morrisey to enact President Trump’s conservative agenda...

    Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) congratulates U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Nicholson for signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, which is a written commitment to the people of Wisconsin to oppose higher taxes. Marine Corp Veteran and businessman Nicholson is the first Republican candidate to officially enter the Wisconsin senate race and looks to unseat liberal Sen. Tammy Baldwin next fall. “The American people are tired of the tax-and-spend policies coming from Washington and they are looking for solutions that create jobs, cut government spending, and get the economy going again. Signing the Taxpayer Protection Pledge and holding the line on taxes...

    The Hill ^ | Sept 25, 2017 | Ben Kamisar
    The vast majority of people polled in New Jersey want Sen. Robert Menendez (D) to step down if he's found guilty on charges of bribery, according to a new poll that shows the embattled senator's favorability rating plummeting. Eighty-four percent of likely voters call for him to resign in a new Suffolk University poll commissioned by USA Today , while just 10 percent believe he should stay in office if convicted. Those high marks are even reflected among Democrats, as more than three quarters agree he should not remain in office if convicted. His favorable rating is upside down in...

    Jewish Press ^ | 9/12/2017
    The Senate on Monday night unanimously passed a resolution condemning white nationalists, white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, and neo-Nazis, calling on the Trump administration—namely Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Department of Homeland Security—to investigate “all acts of violence, intimidation, and domestic terrorism by White supremacists, White nationalists, neo-Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan, and associated groups.” The resolution is seen as backlash from President Trump’s ambiguous response to the violence in Charlottesville last August, in which a 32-year-old woman who was killed by a neo-Nazi who drove into a crowd of demonstrators. Trump blamed “both sides” for the violence,...

    Legal Insurrection ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has declined to make a Shermanesque statement that would flatly rule out the possibility that he would appoint himself to fill the Senate seat of Democrat Senator Bob Menendez. Sen. Menendez is currently under federal trial, facing bribery and corruption charges. Should Menendez be removed from office or resign before Christie’s term ends on January 18, 2018, Christie would have the power to appoint his replacement. In a recorded interview aired on this today’s Morning Joe, New York Times reporter Nick Confessore said to Christie, “I’m looking for a Shermanesque statement here.” View the video...

    A new poll shows former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore with a commanding lead over Luther Strange, the Washington establishment backed candidate, heading into the GOP primary runoff for the Alabama U.S. Senate seat left open this year. The poll from JMC Analytics provided to Breitbart News ahead of its public release shows Moore with 51 percent, a majority, supporting him, while Strange trails nearly 20 points behind with just 32 percent—and 17 percent are undecided. Moore’s commanding lead comes after he outperformed polls to finish around 39 percent in a multi-way primary this past Tuesday. Strange finished...
  • At Senator Menendez’s Trial, Stakes Are High for Democrats

    NY Times ^ | 8-17-17 | Shane Goldmacher
    When Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey goes on trial on federal corruption charges in less than three weeks, far more than his own fate hinges on the outcome. If Mr. Menendez, a Democrat, is convicted and then expelled from the United States Senate by early January, his replacement would be picked by Gov. Chris Christie, the Republican governor of New Jersey and an ally of President Trump. That scenario — where Mr. Menendez’s interim replacement would more than likely be a Republican — would have immediate and far-reaching implications: The Republicans would be gifted a crucial extra vote just...

    The Coach's Team ^ | 8/16/17 | Jean Tierney
    ‘Repeal and Replace Obamacare’ never stood a chance of getting past Mitch "The Blocker" McConnell and is probably doomed this fall in spite of any further praiseworthy Trumpian efforts to help America's middle class escape a law which destroys our health and drains our bank accounts. After all, the Senate Majority Leader has some very close ties to special interest healthcare dollars. Add to that the fact that his wife, new US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao McConnell, “…received $50,000 in 2015 for a five-minute speech to the political wing of the Mujahedeen-e-Khalq, previously called a cult-like terrorist group" by the...

    Wake up everyone, the 2018 off year election cycle begins Tuesday in Alabama, and unless you are clueless as to what is going on, the swamp is attempting to steal the first Senate seat up for grabs. Now is not the time to sit back and just watch what will happen next Tuesday. It's time to get as involved as you can to make sure the right man heads to Washington. We don't want anyone who will feel comfortable getting along with those living in the swamp. We want a man who will make the swamp dwellers feel so...

    Alaskans - are you upset that your Republican senator pulled the rug out from under the repeal of ObamaCare? There's something you can do about it. A certain popular ex-governor is available and what she might lack in skills as an individual candidate, she certain has an eye for representing Alaskans first and foremost rather than the DC elites.
  • The real reason the Republican Senate isn't repealing Obamacare.

    07/10/2017 6:01:41 AM PDT · by afraidfortherepublic · 98 replies
    Republicans pretend that they are powerless to do more about the great ship Obamacare than to change the fuel on which it runs and rearrange its deck chairs — never mind to sink it. Because they lack 60 votes to stop “unlimited debate,” they claim to be unable to vote even on whether to allow health insurance to be sold across state lines. They pretend to believe that fidelity to unlimited debate in the Senate trumps the importance of our health care system. But the reason why they prop up Obamacare rather than tearing it down is that they are...

    National Review ^ | February 14, 2017 | Jim Geraghty
    After years of fights with the Obama administration and the EPA, Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is well positioned to take down Senator Joe Manchin in 2018. About a year ago, the U.S. Supreme Court temporarily halted implementation of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan, and though the court didn’t know it at the time, this probably killed off the plan for good. [snip] If and when the Clean Power Plan is cast aside, it will be a major victory for Patrick Morrisey, currently the attorney general of West Virginia, chairman of the Republican Attorney Generals Association, and a strong...

    Senate Democrats are planning an all-night talkathon Thursday over President Trump's pick to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Asked whether Democrats are planning to hold the floor all night, a spokeswoman for Sen. Tom Carper (Del.) — the top Democrat on the Environment and Public Works Committee — confirmed that "that's the plan." A spokesman for Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) directed questions to Carper's office but noted that Democrats aren't planning to yield back debate time. The late-night floor drama comes after senators voted to move forward with Scott Pruitt's nomination earlier Thursday in a 54-46 vote....
