    Texas land commissioner and member of the Bush political dynasty, George P. Bush, told Dallas radio host Mark Davis today that he is considering a primary challenge against incumbent Attorney General Ken Paxton. This isn’t the first time Bush has indicated contemplation of such a run. Last year, after improper use of office allegations were levied at Paxton by members of his executive team, a spokesman for Bush said the land commissioner was “keep[ing] all options open.” But Thursday’s radio spot was the first time the land commissioner himself acknowledged the possibility. “There have been some serious allegations levied against...

    Former Republican Gov. Pat McCrory on Wednesday announced he'll run for the U.S. Senate in North Carolina, shaking up the calculus in the expanding field to succeed retiring Sen. Richard Burr with the entrance of a veteran of statewide politics. McCrory, who served as governor for four years through 2016, revealed his plans on his morning radio show in Charlotte, where he also served a record 14 years as mayor. McCrory had said in late 2019 that he would strongly consider a Senate bid in 2022. He has quietly built a team of experienced consultants and fundraisers. “I'm in,” he...

    Karl Rove will hold a bigtime virtual fundraiser on March 31 for vocal Trump-hater Adam Kinzinger. Top GOP donors from Illinois are expected to attend this fundraiser.

    A fundraiser for Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., will be headlined by Karl Rove and co-hosted by a who’s who of Illinois Republicans, a show of political strength coming as ex-President Donald Trump vows revenge against GOP House members who voted to impeach him. The co-hosts — there are more than 150 on the invitation obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times — include two high-ranking Trump appointees from Illinois: Ron Gidwitz, Trump’s former ambassador to Belgium and acting ambassador to the European Union, and Barbara Stewart, the ex-chief executive officer of AmeriCorps. Kinzinger is one of 10 Republicans to vote with House...
  • McConnell quietly courts Senate primary candidates ‘who can win’ regardless of Trump ties

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is quietly maneuvering to field a slate of GOP Senate candidates in critical battleground states, attempting to avoid a repeat of election cycles a decade ago when candidates emerged from primaries only to implode and deny his party the chance to take back the majority. This time around, the wily Kentucky Republican has a high-spending super PAC and he’s prepared to use it. With 20 GOP seats to defend — including five open seats where Republican senators are retiring — compared with 14 seats that Democrats have to defend, McConnell is making clear he’s not...

    American Thinker ^ | 03/05/2021 | Peter Barry Chowka
    It was a tough couple of months for Fox News after the November 3rd election. Clips of questionable moments on the channel fueled the meme that the conservative house that Roger Ailes built was “going left.” For the first time in two decades, Fake News oracles CNN and MSNBC actually pulled ahead of FNC in the ratings. The main reason behind that blip, in my opinion, was the fact that progressives were flocking to their two main electronic echo chambers to celebrate the end of President Trump’s first term. Now that the Biden Administration has set its course – a...

    Karl Rove has been losing for years, except for himself. He’s a RINO of the highest order, who came to the Oval Office lobbying for 5G for him and a group. After a lengthy discussion with Rove and Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, I said no, they’re not qualified. Our Nation can do much better! On Election Evening, Nov. 3rd, at 10:30pm, Rove called to congratulate me on “a great win.” I said thank you Karl, only to watch the rigged election take its final form. Karl Rove’s voice on Fox is always negative for those who know how to...
