    Well before classified documents were found in President Biden’s Delaware home, its garage, and the Penn Biden Center, it’s fair to say a certain number of Democrats were uncomfortable with the idea of our octogenarian president seeking reelection. Now a narrative is building that if the classified documents found at these locations aren’t the leverage needed to convince him not to run — or even to resign at some point — his age and health very well could be a reason for him to do just that by the time campaigning begins in earnest next year. So, on the admittedly...

    Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said during an exhaustive interview with the New York Times that she believes there are “other great candidates” outside of President Joe Biden who could challenge and defeat former President Donald Trump in 2024. When asked about President Biden, Pelosi spoke highly of him, asserting that he has “done a great job” in office. However, she said it will ultimately be up to him to choose to run again in 2024, which could very well pit him against Trump yet again. “Is age a positive thing for him? No,” the 82-year-old congresswoman said of...

    Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) on Wednesday defended the GOP’s crop of midterm Senate nominees and pushed back on accusations that candidate quality was the reason for their downfall. Scott, who led the Senate GOP’s campaign arm, lamented the party’s losses following Sen. Raphael Warnock’s (D-Ga.) victory over Republican Herschel Walker in the Georgia runoff on Tuesday. The race handed Democrats a 51-49 majority, marking a net gain for the party in power.

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Sunday said Republicans “nominated some bad candidates” in the midterm elections after the GOP underperformed on projections of a red wave.

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is calling out former President Donald Trump for not spending more of his $100 million war chest to boost Republican Senate candidates ahead of next week’s midterm elections. In an episode of his podcast, “Verdict with Ted Cruz,” that aired on Monday, Cruz lamented that Trump had spent “almost none” of his massive cash reserves in key Senate races, arguing that it should be up to the former president to provide crucial air cover for candidates whom he has endorsed.

    Lee Zeldin is not the only Republican giving Democrats agita in governor’s races this election season. The Long Island congressman — who has narrowed what was once a 20-point gap with Democratic Gov. Hochul to a virtual tie in polls — is one of many GOP gubernatorial candidates across the country surging in the polls ahead of Nov. 8. “When the not-super-engaged voters start to pay attention, that’s usually when you see things break,” said Sean Noble, a GOP consultant based in Arizona. “Unfortunately for Democrats, this year things are breaking for the Republicans.” Twelve of this year’s 33 governor’s...

    Rep. Liz Cheney’s (R-Wyo.) leadership PAC on Friday released a new ad in Arizona targeting two election deniers who are running for high-profile statewide offices, saying “we cannot give people power who will not honor elections.” “I don’t know that I have ever voted for a Democrat. But if I lived in Arizona, I absolutely would. You have a candidate for governor, Kari Lake, you have a candidate for secretary of State, Mark Finchem, both of whom have said that they will only honor the results of an election if they agree with it,” Cheney can be heard saying in...

    Led by an angry old man, the democrat party is scraping the bottom of the barrel for candidates this fall. Sure, they try to sound intelligent and moderate but they’re pretty much, as Biden might say, the dregs of society. Here’s a nice cross section of these sad choices. Mandela Barnes is the Lt. Governor of Wisconsin and he is running for the Senate against Ron Johnson. Let’s see what he would bring to the Senate. Firstly, he’s a defundocrat. It pains him to see the police funded. Mandela Barnes, Democrat nominee for Senate in Wisconsin: "It pains me" to...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) on Tuesday lied about supporting Republican primary candidate Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY). Claiming that he will likely not support fellow Utah Sen Mike Lee’s (R-UT) reelection bid because he does not “get involved in primaries” or make endorsements, Romney once again said one thing but did another behind closed doors, Politico reported.

    CNN suggested Monday 11 candidates who could replace President Joe Biden on the Democrat primary ticket in 2024. The establishment news network, which the White House has courted to tamp down coverage of Biden’s poor economic record, admitted the president’s “age” and “ongoing political struggles” are a factor in 2024 considerations. Biden’s approval ratings have dipped into the high 30s amid 40 year-high inflation, the southern border crisis, and the deadly Afghan withdrawal that left hundreds of Americans stranded in the country. He will turn 82 years old two weeks after the 2024 election.

    In cities like Baltimore, MD, it’s not easy for a black Republican to run for office. It may sound like a cliche, but stories like this show that in these cities, the opposition will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo. This reality became even more evident during a Zoom debate between candidates seeking to become the next mayor of the city. Pastor Shannon Wright is a black Republican candidate who is attempting to end the streak of Democratic domination of the office of mayor. But, as a conservative running in a heavily blue city, she has run into...

    President Donald Trump's announced Saturday night that the Supreme Court nominee he plans to announce next week to fill the vacancy left by Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be a woman, spotlighting two conservative women as his potential pick. During a campaign rally in North Carolina, Trump declared 'I will be putting forth a nominee this week, it will be a woman', later adding his pick would be a 'very talented, very brilliant woman' because 'I like women more than I like men'. As he left the White House for the rally, the president identified two women as front runners: Amy...
