  • If Mitch McConnell Believes He Will Remain Senate Majority Leader, He is Sadly Mistaken

    The Republican establishment is sitting back, resting on their laurels. They are entirely convinced that Joe Biden will be the next president and they will control the Senate. These Republican quislings are sadly mistaken. If Republicans don’t act now to make the case before the American people and the Federal court system that the election has been improperly stolen, the Democrats will easily steal three more Senate seats. First, they will find the ballots necessary to defeat Thom Tillis in North Carolina. Then, they will move to steal two more Senate seats in the upcoming Georgia runoffs using the same...

    Former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton blamed voter suppression for her 2016 loss, and threw her support behind claims made by former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams regarding the 2018 Georgia governor race. "You can run the best campaign, you can have the best plans, you can get the nomination, you can win the popular vote. And you can lose the Electoral College and therefore the election for these four reasons. Number one, voter suppression," Clinton said Tuesday an "In Defense of Democracy" event at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. "We saw what happened in Georgia where Stacey Abrams should...

    The Bernie Sanders 2020 presidential campaign has announced 15 new hires in key positions, 10 of whom are women. This comes on the heels of the campaign hiring four key Iowa staffers and three 2016 veterans in New Hampshire last week. The campaign says that now, every single one of its teams — management, political, policy, organizing, communications, advance, digital, and fundraising — has women, and predominantly women of color, in leadership positions. Overall, the national leadership team is around 70% women. The women coming on board include: René Spellman, deputy campaign manager, a Bernie 2016 alumna who has worked...
  • EXCLUSIVE: Trump on Stacey Abrams running for U.S. Senate: ‘I don’t think she can win’

    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution ^ | February 6, 2019 | Tamar Hallerman
    President Donald Trump was dismissive about the future political prospects of former gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams, saying in an Oval Office interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Wednesday that the Democrat could not defeat incumbent U.S. Sen. David Perdue in a statewide battle. Hours after Abrams delivered a well-received rebuttal to Trump’s State of the Union address on behalf of the Democratic Party, Trump said it would be a “mistake” for Abrams to run against Perdue, one of his top Georgia allies, in 2020. “I think it’s a mistake for her to run against him because I don’t think she...

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Various reports indicate President Donald Trump will return to West Virginia before the Nov. 6 General Election to stump for state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey in his run for U.S. Senate. According to a Reuters report, Trump will go on an 8-state blitz beginning next Wednesday including campaign stops in West Virginia, Florida, Missouri, Indiana, Montana, Ohio, Georgia and Tennessee. Morrisey, who has trailed U.S. Senator Joe Manchin in most of the major polls, predicted during an appearance on MetroNews “Talkline” earlier this week that Trump would return. Trump visited Wheeling Sept. 29. “A vote for Patrick...

    Former President Jimmy Carter isn’t holding back in his assessment of Donald Trump, saying this week that if he could somehow become president again he would reverse all the policies Trump has put in place since taking office. Carter made the remark at Emory University, where he speaks each year to incoming students. The 93-year-old former president said he prays for Donald Trump regularly, though it didn’t appear to be working as Trump would “have to change a lot of things” if his prayers were answered. If he had the chance, Carter said he would make the changes himself. “If...

    Carter also said an additional statement Trump issued under fire is “still not as enthusiastic as it should be.” Jimmy Carter remains unimpressed with President Donald Trump’s belated effort to take note of and honor the late Sen. John McCain’s service to the U.S. In fact, the 93-year-old former president characterized it as “at best adequate.” Carter spoke with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Tuesday about Trump’s responses after McCain ― who endured torture as a POW during the Vietnam war, served more than 45 years in Congress and was the 2008 GOP presidential nominee ― died at his home in...
  • Georgia Democrats aren't putting Trump at center of November hopes

    Georgia Democrats hope that President Donald Trump helps fuel a blue wave that will surge over Republicans on the November ballot. But that doesn't mean they're putting him at the center of their election plans. For as much as state Democrats despise Trump -- and opinion polls consistently confirm they do -- he's been largely missing from campaign trail attacks. Stacey Abrams, the party's nominee for governor, studiously avoids mentioning the president as she stumps across the state. And many of the down-ticket candidates have followed her lead, instead focusing on their policies -- or their GOP opponents' stances. At...

    The retired peanut farmer, 93, has been less vocal than other former commanders in chief about the goings-on in the White House, but in a recent interview with The Washington Post, Carter seared Trump’s policies and character. “I think he’s a disaster … In human rights and in treating people equal,” the 39th president said before his wife, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, 91, jumped in. “The worst is that he is not telling the truth, and that just hurts everything,” she added. Cohen implicated Trump in a federal crime when the lawyer admitted to a federal judge that, at...

    Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp (R) completed his surprise comeback on Tuesday, claiming the Republican nomination for governor after winning late endorsements from President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Kemp, serving his second term as secretary of State, bested Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle (R) in a low-turnout runoff two months after Cagle finished first in the primary, the Associated Press reported. Cagle called Kemp to concede the race about an hour-and-a-half after polls closed, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. In the end, the contest wasn't even close. With 36 percent of the vote reporting, Kemp had taken 69 percent....

    Democratic Rep. John Lewis said Thursday he sometimes feels like “taking a bullwhip” to people in order to make them care about civil rights. “It doesn’t matter whether they’re black, or white, Latino, Asian-American or Native American. When you see something that’s not right, not fair, not just, you have an obligation to do something, to say something. They’re just too darn quiet. I really wanna use some other words sometimes,” Lewis told the audience of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Town Hall on Civil Rights in Washington, D.C.

    ATLANTA (AP) - A new lawsuit claims Georgia's electronic touchscreen voting system is so riddled with problems that the results of the most expensive House race in U.S. history should be tossed out and a new election held. The lawsuit by the Colorado-based Coalition for Good Governance and six Georgia voters was filed Monday in Fulton County Superior Court. It seeks to overturn the results of the June 20 runoff election between Republican Karen Handel and Democrat Jon Ossoff in Georgia's 6th Congressional District. Handel was declared the winner....

    Despite the opposition Trump has galvanized, the Democrats still haven’t figured out how to win in the places where they’re trying to stage a comeback. ATLANTA—Around midnight, hours after their candidate conceded he had lost the Most Important Special Election in History, the last remaining supporters of Jon Ossoff took over the stage where he had recently stood. One of them waved a bottle of vodka in the air. Together, they took up the time-honored leftist chant: “This is what democracy looks like!” Sometimes, this is indeed what democracy looks like: you get outvoted. Democrats were counting on Ossoff, the...

    Well, you know folks, Ms. Karen Handel, now, Republican Congresswoman, Karen Handel, is a bit on the frumpy side and certainly not among the great orators of all time, but Ms. Handel is supreme in her dedication and devotion in never giving up on her dreams. Her life was not star studded...she and, only she, made it that way with great support from her husband, and those around her that discovered her talent and drive to become something that she was not handed by birth. Do you know who Karen Handel really is.....she is simply the true embodiment of the...
  • If GA-06 Was a Referendum on Trump, Democrats Had Better Be Worried

    Red State ^ | June 21, 2017
    Last night’s election in GA-06 has been widely portrayed as a referendum on President Trump. If you do a Google search for GA-06 and “referendum on Trump” you will get over 1.1 million hits. For instance, there is this from the New York Times: High-Stakes Referendum on Trump Takes Shape in a Georgia Special Election. Sadly, but unsurprisingly, it was dutifully and gleefully parroted by many self-described conservatives who have made #NeverTrump a lifestyle choice. The votes have been cast and if the GA-06 was a referendum on Trump and not simply a congressional race in which the winner was...

    Democrats need to outperform Hillary Clinton to take back the House. Ossoff did worse than her. Democrats faced yet another disappointment in Tuesday’s special elections, as Jon Ossoff, their candidate in the runoff for Georgia’s 6th congressional district, fell short and Republican Karen Handel came out on top. Meanwhile, in the much lower-profile race for another open House seat in South Carolina’s 5th district, Democrat Archie Parnell came far closer to winning than expected in a heavily Republican territory. In the end, he lost to GOP nominee Ralph Norman. The results make Democrats 0-for-4 in the House districts vacated by...
