  • Put down your drink--Liz Cheney refuses to rule out run for president in bid to thwart Trump-seriesly

    Liz Cheney has refused to rule out running for US president if it would prevent Donald Trump from ever taking charge of the White House again, saying she will do “whatever it takes” to stop her fellow Republican. Cheney, who on Wednesday was ousted as House Republican conference chair by her colleagues, in a voice vote behind closed doors, was asked three times on NBC’s Today show in an interview aired on Thursday whether she would run to stymie a comeback by the former president. While not saying directly that she would, she declined to dismiss the suggestion each time....
  • Democrats Lobby to Axe New Hampshire, Iowa for First Primaries: Population Too White

    Democrats have taken note of Republicans testing the waters in New Hampshire ahead of the 2024 election — including Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR), former South Carolina governor and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo— and are lobbying that state and Iowa not hold the first primaries because the populations are too white.
  • 9 Of The 10 House Republicans Who Voted For Impeachment Already Have Primary Challengers

    FiveThirtyEight ^ | MAR. 17, 2021 | eoffrey Skelley
    “She gave the state of Wyoming the middle finger.” “He’s a traitor.” “We want a real Republican in there.” These are just some of the criticisms that Republicans have lobbed at the 10 House Republicans who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump after his supporters stormed the Capitol on Jan. 6. The criticisms haven’t stopped there, either. Trump told attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference last month to “get rid of them all.” And all but one of these 10 representatives have been publicly rebuked by state or local GOP officials. In total, nine already face a primary...
  • Mitch McConnell says Georgia Senate runoff was a 'fiasco' and warns he will get 'fully involved' in primaries because he 'actually wants to win'

    UK Daily Mail ^ | February 16 2021 | JACK NEWMAN
    Mitch McConnell made a subtle dig at Donald Trump as he branded Republicans' losses in the Georgia Senate runoff election a 'fiasco'. The Republican alluded to the former president's baseless claims of voter fraud which tainted much of the lead-up to the crucial votes and is thought to have helped suppress GOP votes. Trump's refusal to concede split the party ahead of the runoff which resulted in the Republicans losing their Senate majority.

    Wyoming Congresswoman Liz Cheney, the third highest-ranked Republican in the House, has drawn a primary challenge just one week after she voted to impeach former President Trump over the insurrection at the Capitol on January 6. State Senator Anthony Bouchard announced his campaign against Cheney on Wednesday, noting Mr. Trump's large victory margins in the state and suggesting Cheney's "long-time opposition" to Mr. Trump and her impeachment vote show "just how out-of-touch she is with Wyoming."
  • EXCLUSIVE: Black Republican Mayoral Candidate Interrupted By Racist Attack During Debate

    RedState ^ | September 21, 2020 | Jeff Charles
    In cities like Baltimore, MD, it’s not easy for a black Republican to run for office. It may sound like a cliche, but stories like this show that in these cities, the opposition will stop at nothing to maintain the status quo. This reality became even more evident during a Zoom debate between candidates seeking to become the next mayor of the city. Pastor Shannon Wright is a black Republican candidate who is attempting to end the streak of Democratic domination of the office of mayor. But, as a conservative running in a heavily blue city, she has run into...

    An endorsement from President Trump – it’s the most coveted prize nowadays in Republican primary politics. And on Tuesday, the potency of a Trump endorsement in a contested GOP race was on display once again as two candidates backed by the president won their primary battles in New Hampshire, which was holding federal and state primary contests. Republican Senate candidate Bryant ‘Corky’ Messner edged out retired Army Brig. Gen. Don Bolduc in the GOP Senate primary, thanks in part to support from the president. And Matt Mowers, another Trump backed candidate, crushed his rivals in the Republican House primary in...

    American Thinker ^ | 2019 | Monica Showalter
    Kamala Harris's weak spot has always been her harsh, sleazy, Vishinsky-like record as prosecutor. She locked them up and threw away the key. She threw them in for smalltime pot offenses and then laughed about smoking pot herself, as Rep. Tulsi Gabbard pointed out in the last debate. Heck, she left them to rot there longer than their actual sentences in order to use them as cheap prison labor. She stood by phony testimony from verifiably dishonest prosecutors to keep the wrongly convicted in jail. Such a wonder woman. She packages her record as "Smart on Crime." Now that the...

    The Massachusetts primary is coming up on September 1st (yes, there are still primaries taking place) and the Democratic-run state has decided to go whole hog on mail-in ballots. To say that the process hasn’t gone entirely smoothly thus far would be a bit of an understatement. The local CBS station tries to paint some lipstick on this pig by saying that “a handful of Massachusetts cities and towns” are dealing with some “issues” as they prepare for the vote, but the details suggest that there are probably quite a few snags awaiting them in the road ahead. For...

    The key races include two Anchorage Republicans who are caucusing with the mostly Democratic majority, instead of the all-Republican minority. They are Rep. Chuck Kopp — challenged by retired petroleum engineer Tom McKay — and Rep. Jennifer Johnston, challenged by retired oil industry worker James Kaufman. Another key House race involves another Anchorage Republican who doesn’t caucus with the minority: Rep. Gabrielle LeDoux, who’s facing military contractor David Nelson. LeDoux is also preparing for a trial on felony charges related to alleged misconduct in previous elections. LeDoux’s next court hearing is Thursday

    State Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Naples, won the crowded Republican primary to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Francis Rooney, R-Fla., on Tuesday. With all votes in, Donalds had 22.6 percent of the Republican primary vote, giving him a narrow win over state House Majority Leader Dane Eagle, R-Cape Coral, who took 21.9 percent of the vote. Businessman Casey Askar garnered 20 percent followed by urologist Dr. William Figlesthaler with 18.4 percent of the vote. The rest of the field pulled in the single digits. Fort Myers Mayor Randy Henderson took 7.6 percent followed by activist Christy McLaughlin at 4.1 percent, former Minnesota...

    As I wrote last week, forget about the arguments on potential fraud. Instead, think of just how badly the New York vote-by-mail primary has been handled from just a logistics point of view, and extrapolate that into fifty states in a general election. The New York Times reports today that the vote count for the June 23 primary has still not been completed, and disqualified ballots are still piling up by the thousands: Election officials in New York City widely distributed mail-in ballots for the primary on June 23, which featured dozens of hard-fought races. The officials had hoped...
