    Republican 2024 presidential candidate Nikki Haley raised $11 million in the first six weeks of her campaign, according to a report on Wednesday — only slightly more than former President Donald Trump took in over five days since his indictment. Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations during the Trump administration, ​told Fox News that the contributions reflected the strength of her grassroots support, as she received 70,000 separate donations from all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Her campaign noted that 67,000 of those donations were under $200. ​Haley, who launched her presidential run on Feb. 14​,...

    Ron DeSantis may be missing his moment. A number of the Florida governor’s donors and allies are worried his recent stumbles suggest he may not be ready for a brutal fight against Donald Trump. Some feel DeSantis needs to accelerate his timeline to run for the GOP presidential nomination and begin directly confronting Trump if he's to have any chance of thwarting the former president’s momentum. Others believe DeSantis should sidestep Trump altogether and wait until 2028 to run. “They liked him — many of them might even support him,” the person who was at the event said of DeSantis....

    A new Yahoo News/YouGov poll finds that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis now leads former President Donald Trump by 5 percentage points in the race for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination. Trump previously led DeSantis by double-digit margins among registered voters who describe themselves as Republicans or Republican-leaning independents. Meanwhile, DeSantis is ahead by even more — a whopping 11 points — among Americans who say they voted in a 2016 Republican primary or caucus in their state. The poll of 1,635 U.S. adults, which was conducted from Dec. 1 to 5, is one of the first to confirm how far...

    Fresh off his huddling with donors last week, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) is teeing up a jammed-pack week as he seemingly lays down the groundwork for a 2024 bid. DeSantis will deliver his hotly anticipated State of the State address to the Florida legislature, which is set to convene Tuesday, and start his mad dash to wrangle through a bevy of big-ticket items. Then, DeSantis will close off the week with a trip to the early primary state of Iowa to promote his new book. "Gov. DeSantis has said he is going to have the most productive and successful legislative...

    Paul Ryan, a member of the Fox Corporation Board of Directors, said this weekend he will skip the 2024 Republican National Convention if former President Donald Trump wins the Republican Party primary. In an interview on WISN ABC, Ryan was asked where he would be during the 2024 convention held in Milwaukee. “Where will you be?” the host asked. “It depends on who the nominee is,” Ryan replied. “I’ll be here if it’s not named somebody Trump.”

    Liz Cheney is no longer a member of Congress, but that didn’t stop her from trying to pick a fight with Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-GA. Cheney tweeted from the unemployment line on Monday, lecturing Greene on the “governing principles of America” after the Georgia congresswoman proposed a national divorce. Greene had tweeted earlier, “We need a national divorce. We need to separate by red states and blue states and shrink the federal government. Everyone I talk to says this. From the sick and disgusting woke culture issues shoved down our throats to the Democrat’s traitorous America Last policies, we are...

    South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott is taking steps to run for president, people familiar with his plans said, adding to the stable of Republicans looking to wrest the party mantle from former President Donald Trump. Mr. Scott, the only Black Republican in the Senate, is testing a message with GOP voters in key early states focused on unity and optimism as some Republicans say it is time to move on from the Trump era. Mr. Trump has announced a bid for president in the 2024 election. Jennifer DeCasper, a Scott senior adviser, said he was “excited to share his vision...

    An odd thing happened at this week’s State of the Union: President Biden and congressional Republicans got into a skirmish about an issue over which, apparently, they completely agree. Neither party, it seems, wants to make changes to Social Security or Medicare during upcoming negotiations to raise the debt ceiling.

    Former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that “boring” President Joe Biden only won the 2020 election because former President Donald Trump lost. Anchor Jon Karl said, “You know, Governor, it’s hard to say stay the course when the answer for are you better off now for so many Americans is no.” Christie said, “If you listened to Secretary Buttigieg, you would have thought we were in the Eisenhower economy, for God’s sake. Here’s the problem. Politicians when they run for office, you don’t always win. Sometimes the other guy loses. Joe Biden’s president because Donald...

    Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel won her bid Friday to lead the GOP for two more years, prevailing in an election that highlighted fierce internal divisions that threaten to plague the party into the next presidential season. McDaniel, whom Donald Trump tapped as RNC chair in 2016, won the the secret ballot vote 111 to 51. The high-profile election played out inside a luxury resort on the Southern California coast as the RNC’s 168 voting members – activists and elected officials from all 50 states – gathered for the committee’s annual winter meeting. With the victory, McDaniel becomes the...

    Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel is arguing she should remain in her position because she can best convince Donald Trump not to run third party in 2024, according to a new report. The Washington Post’s Michael Scherer reported this week that McDaniel is trying to fend off challengers to her leadership by claiming Trump could form his own third party. Harmeet Dhillon and MyPillow’s Mike Lindell have both been floated as potential replacements to head the RNC.

    South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem appears to be showing off her bona fides ahead of what's expected to be a competitive 2024 Republican presidential primary as she gave her second inaugural speech Saturday. Noem, who won re-election by 26 points, spoke ahead of the speech, which included a reference to David Letterman's famous 'Top 10' lists and discussed how her leadership can offer lessons for the rest of the country. She was asked Saturday if she wasn't ruling out a 2024 run and responded that 'that's fair to say. But there are a lot of people out there talking about...

    The Hill ^ | 01/05/2023 | Myra Adams
    The calendar says 2023, but politically, it’s 2024. Therefore, at the beginning of this volatile two-year presidential campaign cycle, expect at least half of the predictions and prognostications to be inoperative by January 2024. (But we don’t know which half!)My speculation about a small fraction of the half likely to be valid a year from now concerns two names on The Hill’s recent report, “GOP Rankings: The Republicans most likely to be the party’s 2024 presidential nominee.” Ranked fifth was former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who leads former Vice President Mike Pence, in seventh place.These distinguished “formers” from President...

    Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis vowed Tuesday in his second inaugural address to fight to defend freedom and stand up against the “woke ideology” that has taken hold in cities and states across the country. “We seek normalcy, not philosophical lunacy,” Mr. DeSantis said. “We will not allow reality, facts and truth to become optional. We will never surrender to the woke mob. “Florida is where woke goes to die,” he said. Mr. DeSantis cruised to victory in the November election, winning by 19 points and leading a GOP lineup that won races up and down the ticket. The 44-year-old is...

    Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is quickly becoming the favorite of the globalist RINO mega donors who want to “move on” from Donald Trump.Ken Griffin, a globalist RINO mega donor, talked to Politico about why he is backing DeSantis because he sees him as the vehicle to move on from Trump and his brand of populism that has made the GOP less hospitable for soulless corporations that have sold America down the river.“He did a lot of things really well and missed the mark on some important areas,” Griffin said. “And for a litany of reasons, I think it’s time to...

You’ve got a Democratic president, a Democratic Senate, and a Republican House.
