  • 5-Term Idaho Attorney General in Tough GOP Primary Battle (time to go!)

    BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho’s five-term Republican attorney general has handled his duties in the deeply conservative state for 20 years with a strategy he describes as calling legal “balls and strikes.” He's facing two challengers who see a more activist role for the office. Lawrence Wasden, a former prosecutor backed by establishment Republicans, is likely in the toughest primary race of his career against former U.S. Rep. Raul Labrador and Art Macomber, a political newcomer who has never held public office. Labrador, a favorite of the Tea Party during his eight years in the U.S. House, lost to now-Gov....

    A standing room-only crowd made up mostly of organized, left-leaning, political activists shouted, “Shame! Shame!” when commissioners in Pennsylvania’s Lancaster County voted to remove a ballot drop box placed at the county building on Monday, the day before the primary election.Now, instead of placing absentee ballots in the drop box located just three steps inside the door of the county building, voters will have to walk about 30 steps into the building, from the same door, to get to the Board of Elections office where they will hand their ballot directly to one of the workers.Anyone entering the building beyond...

    Pact between Marcos, Duterte families shaped the vote Bongbong' Marcos didn't just win the presidential election in the Philippines this week. He won it by a two-to-one landslide, despite the fact that he is the extremely entitled son of a former president who stole at least ten billion dollars and a mother who spent the loot partly on the world's most extensive collection of designer shoes (3,000 pairs). Moreover, Ferdinand Marcos Jr, to give him his real name, has virtually no accomplishments other than that name. Yet his name and his inherited wealth, originally stolen from the parents of the...

    As the May 17 Pennsylvania party primaries approach, it’s clear that Trumpism has reduced what was once a powerful and moderate state Republican Party to a rotten receptacle filled with candidates fashioning themselves in his image. Many of them lack much if any previous political ties to the state, or to politics at all. snip So, and not surprisingly, most of the Trump-adoring candidates in the current GOP Senate primary have few or no real political roots in the state they claim to want to represent. Dr. Mehmet Oz got his medical degree at Penn, but is really from Turkey,...
  • In early primaries, voters favor polling places over mail

    ATLANTA (AP) — The great vote-by-mail wave appears to be receding just as quickly as it arrived. After tens of millions of people in the United States opted for mail ballots during the pandemic election of 2020, voters in early primary states are returning in droves to in-person voting this year. In Georgia, one of the mostly hotly contested states, about 85,000 voters had requested mail ballots for the May 24 primary, as of Thursday. That is a dramatic decrease from the nearly 1 million who cast mail ballots in the state’s 2020 primary at the height of the coronavirus...
  • Fights over school boards share ballot with North Carolina’s Senate primary (Tuesday!)

    North Carolina’s Senate race is among the most competitive in the nation this year. But voters across the state are also weighing in on highly contested school board races fueled by parents who felt voiceless throughout the pandemic and a conservative focus on how topics like race and sex are taught in public schools. In many North Carolina counties, the May 17 primary offers voters a long list of candidates to choose from for their local school board. In Forsyth County, 28 candidates are vying for nine school board slots, and in Johnston County, 13 people are on the ballot...
  • Philadelphia Inquirer finally comes clean. Will endorse no Republicans

    With the primary season getting underway, it’s also time for the traditional round of newspaper endorsements. Few people seem to believe that those endorsements hold anywhere near the influence they did fifty years ago, but some traditions have to be maintained, I suppose. That’s not the case at the Philadelphia Inquirer, however. They are publishing their picks for the Democratic races as they normally do. But instead of listing endorsements for candidates in Republican primary races in Pennsylvania this week, the editorial board of the Inquirer decided to publish a long-winded explanation of why they refused to endorse a single...
  • A turning point for Idaho Senate? Idaho’s ‘moderate’ Republicans targeted in primary (Tuesday!)

    Last fall, Matt Edwards, a conservative activist from Hayden, sent all 105 Idaho legislators a pledge. By signing the statement, lawmakers would promise to support what he termed medical freedom and privacy, election integrity and education freedom. They would also vow not to raise taxes, suppress free speech or support government lockdowns. “Only four Idaho senators signed the pledge. Since then, Edwards’ political action committee, Citizens Alliance of Idaho, with help from other deep-pocketed right-wing reformers, has spent nearly $200,000 to promote incumbent senators’ primary election opponents. The pledge is emblematic of a larger rift in the Idaho GOP over...

    Former President Donald Trump scored another victory as a Republican kingmaker on Tuesday, after his pick in West Virginia’s GOP primary, Rep. Alex Mooney, beat Rep. David McKinley in the race for the state’s 2nd Congressional District seat. As always, the display of Trump’s continued grip on the party is concerning. But there’s a specific detail about the race that’s particularly grim: McKinley was punished for the sin of indulging in an anodyne act of bipartisanship. According to Roll Call, McKinley’s support for last year's bipartisan infrastructure law — you know, the law that received support from both parties in...

    “They are claiming irreparable harm because we have used our free speech right (to endorse candidates), as the rules allow,” Fuller said. “I am frankly dumbfounded that our own Republican Party would sue us.” The party has appointed Bryan Zollinger to represent them in the suit, and they plan to fight the complaint. “I’m not going to apologize because I don’t believe we’ve done anything wrong. I’m prepared to defend us,” Fuller said. The complaint comes after the state party has chastised the BCRCC twice in recent weeks. In a letter dated May 10, Luna criticized the BCRCC for distributing...

    Republicans are watching conservative candidate Kathy Barnette's sudden rise in their party's upcoming Pennsylvania US Senate primary with a mix of unease, wonder and dread. Barnette's late surge in the closely watched contest has turned what was broadly seen as a two-person race between celebrity doctor Mehmet Oz and former hedge fund manager Dave McCormick into a chaotic three-person affair, with Barnette seen as a wild card who has grassroots momentum mere days before the Tuesday contest. The unexpected development has caused even the most influential Republicans to panic, including former President Donald Trump himself, who attempted to quash Barnette's...

    When Donald Trump won the presidency in 2016, it sent shockwaves through Washington. For the first time in modern U.S. history, an individual had won the highest office purely on grassroots support and by challenging the Washington Democrat-led establishment. Trump was a threat to the status quo in Washington. The establishment knew they not only had to personally denigrate him, but also delegitimize his victory to prolong their relevance. They first concocted the Trump-Russian Collusion hoax. The mainstream media amplified the lie with their breathless coverage. The proponents of this hoax couldn't tell how Russia meddled with the ballots or...

    South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) has endorsed Kelly Tshibaka for the U.S. Senate in Alaska, Breitbart News learned exclusively on Thursday. “Kelly Tshibaka will be an America First senator who knows that what’s good for Alaska is also good for America. She will fight for the constitutional rights of all citizens and work to revive the Alaskan economy, which has been devastated by the horrendous policies of the Biden administration,” Noem said in a statement. “I am proud to endorse Kelly and look forward to working with her on issues we have in common for years to come.” Tshibaka...
