    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...

  • Pro union, still for Trump

    PRO-UNION, STILL FOR TRUMP: As as many as half of Republicans who voted in the Missouri primary last week sided with unions and against the state’s right-to-work law in a ballot measure that overturned it, according to Jack Cardetti, a Democratic strategist and spokesman for the state’s anti-right-to-work campaign. Cardetti is no disinterested party, so that estimate may be high (though the returns show it’s certain plausible). But it’s remarkable any pro-union voters still favor Trump, given Trump’s staunchly anti-union policies. (POLITICO’s Timothy Noah reviewed them in November.) “Pro-union, pro-Trump voters say that even if they consider unions crucial, they...

    President Donald Trump is making his first visit to Illinois since becoming president, making a stop in Granite City on Thursday where he is expected to tout the reopening of a U.S. Steel Corp. mill. The White House announced Sunday night Trump will swing through Granite City, in southern Illinois near St. Louis and Dubuque, Iowa, on Thursday. The Trump administration has been highlighting U.S. Steel’s Granite City mill as a trade war success story even as the tariffs have sparked concerns in other sectors, with alarms sounded by Illinois farmers whose main crop is soybeans. The visit will have...

    .Two polls - one internal and another independent - released on Monday show a tight race in the marquee match-up between Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and her likely GOP opponent Josh Hawley. Hawley's campaign is touting a memo with an internal poll showing Missouri's Senate race in a dead heat. The poll finds the state's attorney general ahead of McCaskill by a razor-thin margin, 47 percent to 46 percent. Seven percent of voters are undecided.

    The Democratic Missouri lawmaker who said on social media she hoped President Trump would be assassinated was publicly censured by the state's Republican-led Senate Wednesday. "Again, I apologize for the Facebook posting," Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal said in a statement released to local media after the reprimand measure passed the Missouri Senate 28-2. "However, I have made it clear that I will not resign. The voters of my district elected me to represent them. I will work tirelessly for the remainder of my elected term to bring about positive change for my constituents and all Missourians." The same legislative body failed...

    Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says in her new book that Donald Trump made her skin crawl by stalking her around the stage in a campaign debate and she wonders if she should have told him to "back up, you creep". In audio excerpts of the book What Happened aired on MSNBC, Mrs Clinton described her 2016 campaign as "joyful, humbling, infuriating and just plain baffling" and acknowledged she failed her millions of supporters by losing to Trump in the November election. In the excerpts, Mrs Clinton described the 9 October debate in St Louis in which Mr Trump...

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — The Missouri senator who posted on social media that she hoped the president was assassinated was stripped of some of her legislative duties Tuesday. According to the Associated Press, Republican and Democratic state Senate leaders rescinded all committee assignments of Democratic Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal.

But she's refusing to resign her position....

Gov. Eric Greitens and Lt. Gov. Mike Parson, both Republicans, said on Friday that state senators should oust Democratic Sen. Maria Chapelle-Nadal, who has continued to reject calls for her resignation. "If she will not resign, the Senate can vote to remove her.

Maria Chappelle-Nadal was responding to a comment, saying she hopes President Trump gets assassinated. She has since deleted her Facebook comment. (TWEETS-AT-LINK) Chappelle-Nadal told the Kansas City Star she made the comments “out of frustration with the 'trauma and despair'” caused by Trump's remarks after the violent clashes in Charlottesville. “The way I responded this morning was wrong,” she added. “I’m frustrated. Did I mean the statement? No. Am I frustrated? Absolutely. The president is causing damage. He’s causing hate."...

    The St. Louis County Police Association is calling a painting placed in the U.S. Capitol complex by Rep. William Lacy Clay a “punch in the mouth” for depicting police officers as animals. Clay, D-St. Louis, said he would not take it down, despite criticism from conservative bloggers and a call from a Fox News commentator for it to be taken down. The painting, which has hung for months in a tunnel that connects House office buildings with the U.S. Capitol, was chosen the winner of Clay’s annual art competition for St. Louis students last spring. It was done by then-Cardinal...

    Red-state Democrats and party strategists are already nervously looking past 2016, when they are angling to recapture the Senate, to the 2018 elections, hoping against hope that their party isn’t setting itself up for a titanic midterm backlash that could flip control of the Senate for a third time in three elections. As difficult as the 2016 Senate map has been for Republicans, who had to defend numerous blue- and purple-state seats and could lose their majority, Democrats’ 2018 map looks practically unnavigable. The party starts with five ruby-red seats to defend: Indiana, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota and West Virginia....

    While police officers are getting murdered in Dallas and Baton Rouge, while others are under assault in Missouri, Georgia and Tennessee, while supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement attempt to justify the murders of police officers, the Democratic National Convention, AKA Hillary’s Coronation, will feature the mothers of black men who died in confrontations with police, thereby perpetuating the myth that there is systemic racism in police departments across the nation. One mother who will speak will be Lezley McSpadden, the mother of Michael Brown, the “Gentle Giant” who burgled a convenience store, then attempted to grab the gun...

    The Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders presidential campaigns are weighing whether to ask for a recount in Missouri following results that found them just two-tenths of 1 percent behind Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, respectively. Media outlets have yet to call the race due to the extremely close margins. The Missouri Secretary of State's office said that all results are unofficial until they're certified, which could take up to four weeks. With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Trump leads Cruz by 0.2 percent, and the two are separated by about 1,700 votes. On the Democratic side, Clinton also leads Sanders...
