    Maryland Governor Wes Moore (D) on Wednesday called for “full accountability” following the collapse of the Francis Key Scott Bridge in Baltimore that left six people presumed dead. Moore said on CNN there “needs to be a full and thorough investigation.” “What led up to this? What made the ship lose power? What made them lose the ability to be ability to steer the ship? Do we have the right infrastructure that’s in place to be able to protect the people of our state,” he said. “So I think there needs to be a full reckoning, a full accountability, and...

    A bill that would allow concealed carry of firearms in schools and government meetings is headed to Wyoming's governor after clearing the state Legislature by a wide margin Thursday. What happens next is somewhat uncertain because Wyoming governors traditionally don’t say if they plan to sign or veto bills. Gov. Mark Gordon has not spoken publicly about the bill, but he is a Republican gun rights supporter. Wyoming is among the gun-friendliest states and the bill passed the state Senate 22-8 after supporters dismissed fears about allowing guns where they're currently banned. People carry concealed guns in Wyoming all the...

    Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson of North Carolina is one step closer to winning it all after clinching the state’s Republican gubernatorial primary on Tuesday. Not only is he the first Black man to hold his office, but he has also taken some staunchly conservative positions on several issues including the gender debate. “Here’s something else I’m not supposed to say: Ain’t but two genders,” he said to roaring applause. “Two genders. Ain’t nothing but men and women.” “You can go to the doctor and get cut up, you can go down to the dress shop and get made up, you...

    The Republican congressman representing the Florida Panhandle leads the pack of potential GOP 2026 gubernatorial primary rivals, according to a newly released Kaplan Strategies poll of 1,151 likely Florida Republican voters. Advertisement “Matt Gaetz is in the early lead with the support of 16 percent of Republicans going into 2026,” said Doug Kaplan, the Florida-based pollster, who famously nailed the 2016 percentages between former first lady Hillary R. Clinton and New York City developer Donald J. Trump, when Kaplan was running polls for Gravis Marketing. Following Gaetz in the top three were Rep. Byron Donalds at 13 percent, and state...

    Anti-Trump Republicans New Jersey state Sen. Jon Bramnick and radio host Bill Spadea are vying to become the first Republican to win the Garden State governor’s mansion since Chris Christie in 2009. Bramnick and Spadea hope to replace outgoing Gov. Phil Murphy (D), who is term limited. Bramnick is an avowed moderate Republican and hopes to flip the governor’s mansion red, albeit with his anti-Trump flare. He hopes to buck the trend as Republicans have increasingly embraced former President Donald Trump as the leader of the GOP.

    Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont (D) unveiled a plan on Friday to cancel medical debt for residents of the Constitution State, in what would be a first-of-its-kind initiative. The plan was first unveiled on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” According to ABC, the plan includes using $6.5 million in funds from the American Rescue Plan Act to cancel $1 billion of medical debt in collaboration with a nonprofit that buys and eliminates debt. Those who are eligible for the cancellation include families that have debt equivalent to 5 percent or higher of annual income. “This is not something they did because they...

    “This is not over,” Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted on Monday evening after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Border Patrol agents can cut the razor-wire border barriers along the Rio Grande. The court granted an emergency appeal from the Biden administration allowing federal agents to access the Texas border with Mexico being fenced off by the Texas Military Department.

    Two Republican state lawmakers in New Mexico filed a resolution Wednesday to impeach Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, accusing her of breaking her oath to the U.S. Constitution over her use of emergency public health orders to restrict the right to carry firearms in some public places. Reps. Stefani Lord and John Block claim that with the restriction, Lujan Grisham infringed upon the rights of New Mexicans. "The rights of New Mexicans are not up for debate, and no matter how hard Lujan Grisham tries to violate the Constitution, she will never succeed," Lord said in a statement. "I stood...

    Governor Phil Murphy’s wife Tammy Murphy has announced she is running for U.S. Senate. She and her husband are rabidly pro-abortion. Since she has become a candidate for U.S. Senate, she said she plans to make abortion the # 1 priority if she gets elected. On a recent podcast when asked about her major policy goals, her first reply was, “abortion, abortion, abortion.” New Jersey deserves better than a person of privilege who promotes the killing of innocent children as an answer to helping poor women. Here’s an excerpt from another article for background: “From gun violence and mass shootings...

    Rep. Abigail Spanberger (D-Va.) launched her bid for Virginia governor on Monday, announcing she will not seek reelection to the U.S. House next year. Making the announcement in a campaign video titled “What Matters Most,” the Virginia representative said she knows “how to bring people together” at a time when the nation is at “a crossroads.” “Our country and our Commonwealth are facing fundamental threats to our rights, our freedoms, and to our democracy. While some politicians in Richmond focus on banning abortion and books, what they’re not doing is helping people,” Spanberger said in the video.

    We wish to extend our best wishes for a “Happy Birthday” to former Massachusetts Governor Michael Dukakis, who turned 90 last week. Mike Dukakis served as governor of our state from 1975-79 and then again for two terms from 1983-91. He was the Democratic nominee for President in 1988, losing to Republican George H.W. Bush in a contentious election that was marked by immense distortions of Dukakis’s record, including the infamous Willie Horton ad that invoked racial stereotypes and played to the worst instincts of white voters. For those too young to know about Mike Dukakis, we will mention three...

    A Democrat poll released on the eve of Election Day shows what could be a very tight gubernatorial race in Kentucky as voters head to the polls on Tuesday. The Data For Progress survey, released Monday, November 6, showed an extremely close race between Democrat incumbent Gov. Andy Beshear and Donald Trump-backed Republican Attorney General Daniel Cameron. When asked who they would support between the two, 50 percent of likely Kentucky voters chose Beshear, while 48 percent chose Cameron. Just two points separate the candidates, which is well within the survey’s ± four percent margin of error. 📊 2023 Kentucky...

    Republican Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon is facing criticism for his recent comments pledging to reduce his state's carbon emissions and saying there was urgency to addressing the "warming climate." Gordon made the comments during a talk at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Institute of Politics in Massachusetts Monday, promoting the "Decarbonizing the West" initiative he established in his role as chairman of the Western Governors’ Association. In 2018, Gordon ran for governor on an all-of-the-above-energy platform and has since promoted green energy development. "It is clear that we have a warming climate," Gordon remarked Monday, according to The Harvard Crimson. "It...

    Republican Jeff Landry won a landslide election on Saturday to flip the Louisiana governor’s mansion red in one of three main gubernatorial elections this year, shocking political observers with a victory that saves him the trouble of having to face a Democrat in a November runoff. Landry defeated Democrat Shawn Wilson and the rest of the field in Louisiana’s gubernatorial election, winning about 52 percent of the vote. In Louisiana, governor elections are first open to a full field of all candidates from either party in what is known as a jungle primary—and then the two top vote-getters generally advance...

    More than 100 dolphins died in Brazil last week, and a local governor has declared a state of emergency as experts say additional deaths could be expected. The Brazilian Amazon continues to grapple with a severe drought. Experts say the most likely cause of the deaths in the lakes were high water temperatures, as temperatures have exceeded 102 degrees Fahrenheit in the Tefe Lake region. The Mamiraua Institute, a research group of Brazil’s Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, said additional dolphins were found Monday. Local media has reported thousands of fish have also died at Tefe Lake, which is...

The Republican state treasurer noted that during her less than 24-hours as acting governor she would refrain from confirming the thirteen agencies that still hold vacancies and wait for the Democratic governor to fill them upon her return.
