In a letter dated Thursday, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel outlines many objections and accuses the CPD of stonewalling the RNC's requested changes to the process and of being biased. Her letter includes a number of suggestions for fixes. "The RNC has shared our concerns with...

    President George H-W Bush's longtime chief of staff has now documented Bush's life after his term in the White House. She'll be in Tallahassee to discuss the process Tuesday, Nov. 16.

Seven years later, she would become President Bush's chief of staff. She would keep that title until his death in late 2018.

Millions of Americans strongly feel that vote counts ought to have been adjusted to offset election fraud and...
