    Washington Examiner ^ | May 27, 2024 | Cami Mondeaux
    Rep. Tony Gonzales (R-TX) is warning of possible retribution against some of his GOP colleagues in the House who are actively campaigning against the Texas Republican’s reelection bid. As Gonzales seeks a third term to his seat on Tuesday representing Texas’s 23rd Congressional District, the incumbent is facing a challenge from his right over his voting record to protect same-sex marriage and to implement stricter gun safety measures. Those votes attracted a crowded field of candidates looking to oust the incumbent during the March primary, forcing Gonzales into a runoff with challenger Brandon Herrera after neither candidate secured more than...

    OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — In one of the most closely watched congressional races this year, U.S. Rep. Don Bacon of Nebraska is looking to defeat a fellow Republican in Tuesday's primary election in his quest for reelection. He'll have to do it without the support of the state Republican Party, which has endorsed his primary challenger. Bacon, whose district includes the state's largest city of Omaha, isn't the only one being snubbed. The Nebraska GOP, which was taken over by those loyal to former President Donald Trump during a contentious state convention in 2022, has refused to endorse any of...

    HARRISBURG — Location, reputation, demographics, and pure luck may have mattered more than policy differences in Pennsylvania’s row office primary elections this week. Tuesday saw a major upset in the Democratic race for state treasurer and a decisive win in a crowded Democratic attorney general field by a candidate who brought statewide name recognition — but not much cash — to the race. With the fields settled for November’s marquee presidential and U.S. Senate races, turnout for the Democratic and Republican primaries was low, according to election administrators. The voters who did show up often said they felt unprepared and...

    CNN’s Manu Raju reported over the weekend from Appomattox, Virginia on the effort inside the House GOP to oust one of its own, Rep. Bob Good (R-VA), who is the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus. Raju both aired his report on CNN’s Inside Politics Sunday and published an article on CNN.com detailing the various House Republicans openly campaigning in support of Good’s GOP primary opponent, state Sen. John McGuire. Raju noted that campaigning openly against a House colleague is “a tactic long viewed as a serious breach of protocol but one that underscores the bad blood within the House...

    (New York Jewish Week) — The Jewish Democratic Council of America, the leading Jewish organization affiliated with the Democratic Party, endorsed George Latimer in his bid to unseat New York Rep. Jamaal Bowman in the upcoming primary. It also endorsed Wesley Bell in his campaign to unseat Rep. Cori Bush in Missouri, marking the first time that the Jewish Democrats have endorsed primary challengers to Democratic incumbents. Both incumbents have been vocal critics of Israel. In New York’s 16th district, which covers southern Westchester County and a sliver of the northern Bronx and is home to a sizable Jewish community,...
  • Robert Kennedy Jr. Campaign Fires Back at Nevada SOS, DNC After 15,000 Signatures Invalidated, Threatens Lawsuit

    Red State ^ | 03/25/2024 | Brittany Sheehan
    As previously reported, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an Independent presidential candidate, faces a setback in Nevada despite collecting over 15,000 signatures, thus surpassing the required amount for ballot access. The issue arises from the failure to list a running mate on the petition, as mandated by law and indicated in Nevada's guidelines for presidential candidates. This oversight necessitates restarting the signature-gathering process after Kennedy announces his pick for vice president, scheduled to be revealed on Tuesday. On Monday, the Kennedy campaign fired back alleging the Nevada Secretary of State was conspiring with the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to prevent his...

    California's primary was held a week ago today. In the Senate race only 77% of the votes have been counted as of 6:00 p.m. EST.

Wyatt Gable, 21, joined “FOX & Friends” on Thursday after beating 81-year-old incumbent state Rep. George Cleveland in North Carolina’s Super Tuesday election by 95 votes. Cleveland has represented the district for two decades.

    Katie Porter has claimed that California's Senate primary race was "rigged" after she lost a vote on Wednesday. Porter, a progressive Democrat, came third in the non-partisan primary, losing out to Adam Schiff, a centrist Democrat who has been vocal in his support for Israel. In response to the results, she blamed billionaires for spending money on attack adverts against her. Newsweek contacted representatives for Porter by X to comment on this story. The Senate seat has become available after Dianne Feinstein, the longest-serving woman in the U.S. Senate, died in September 2023. Porter, who has represented Orange County, California,...

    Mark Cuban said Monday he recently cast his ballot in the Texas Republican primary for former President Donald Trump’s last remaining opponent, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. Cuban told Bloomberg News of his choice during a visit to the White House, as Breitbart News reported, making plain his antipathy towards the man shaping as the Republican presidential nominee for 2024. The 65-year-old minority Dallas Mavericks owner said he voted for Nikki Haley in the Texas Republican primary and will be backing Biden in the general election if he faces off against Trump, having once admitted he too harbored ambitions...
