He ran for U.S. Senate in 2012 but lost to Ted Cruz. In...

    Former President Donald Trump told Fox News to dump Republican strategist Karl Rove in a statement from his political action committee Thursday. Rove wrote in The Wall Street Journal on Wednesday when he noted a so-called "muted enthusiasm" for Trump following a straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference showed 68% said the former president should run again in 2024. "Never had much of a feeling for Karl, in that I disagreed with so many of the things he says. He's a pompous fool with bad advice and always has an agenda," Trump wrote in a statement from his...

    President Joe Biden’s inauguration marks not only a new administration’s beginning but also a new chapter for the loyal opposition. The Grand Old Party lost the White House while picking up U.S. House seats, holding half the Senate, and adding to its numbers in state legislative chambers. These conflicting outcomes leave Republicans facing the difficult task of cementing blue-collar Trump voters into their ranks while regaining strength in the suburbs and making inroads with an increasingly diverse electorate. To rebuild, Republicans must decide what their party stands for. The way forward begins with clarifying what the GOP’s answers should be...

    Republican Party establishment strategist Karl Rove is informing President Donald Trump that he will likely be impeached unless he stops talking about electoral fraud. Rove is trying to use the president’s precarious position following the Jan. 6 storming of the U.S. Capitol to pressure him into folding. He appeared on “Fox News Sunday” with Chris Wallace to deliver the threat. Wallace asked: “Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell says that he is keeping an open mind about the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, a big difference, sharp difference, from his clear opposition from the very start of the first impeachment...

    Republican strategist Karl Rove said on this week’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday” that President Donald Trump will be convinced in the Senate with Republicans voting for impeachment if his defense is there was widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Anchor Chris Wallace asked, “Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell says that he is keeping an open mind about the second impeachment trial of Donald Trump, a big difference, sharp difference, from his clear opposition from the very start of the first impeachment trial just a year ago. What do you think, Karl, are the chances that 17 Senate...
  • 2020 Autopsies for Both Parties. One lesson is that hostility motivates voters as much as enthusiasm does.

    Parties often conduct autopsies after losing elections. Since Democrats and Republicans alike gained and lost so much this difficult and bizarre year, both need sober after-action reviews. Democrats won the White House but not the Senate. They also suffered surprising and significant losses in the House. Republicans have the upper hand in keeping the Senate, gained impressively in the House, kept their redistricting edge by turning back a well-funded Democratic effort to flip state legislatures. But they forfeited the presidency. So what lessons can each party take from 2020? One is that money can’t buy victory. Democrats outspent Republicans in...

    Fox News contributor Karl Rove on Tuesday criticized former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and lawyer Sidney Powell for the “idiotic” ideas they are pushing to President Donald Trump on overturning the results of the 2020 election. Anchor John Roberts said, “I want to ask you about these meetings that the president has been having a close group of allies about what to do regarding what happens on January 6… that some members of the House may oppose the seating of electors from their states. And then there’s other things that have been kicked around, too, which the president denies,...

    It’s official: Longtime Republican strategist Steve Schmidt is a Democrat. He told “Battleground” podcast co-host David Plouffe Monday night that he’ll change his party affiliation. ... Schmidt has enjoyed a long career in Republican electoral politics. He ran day-to-day operations for John McCain’s failed presidential effort in 2008, served as communications director for Lamar Alexander’s failed presidential primary bid in 1999, directed communications for Matt Fong’s failed California Senate race in 1998, and that same year headed up Tim Leslie’s failed attempt to become Lt. Governor of California. In 1995, Schmidt managed the failed campaign of Will Scott for Kentucky...

    Republican strategist Karl Rove said on this week’s broadcast “Fox News Sunday” that President Donald Trump should be aware Americans do not like “sore losers.” Anchor Chris Wallace asked, “The Electoral College votes tomorrow, and then on January 6, the Congress actually counts the votes and formally declares a winner. Do you expect President Trump to continue to contest the election past tomorrow, maybe even past January 6, and do you think he’s either helping or hurting both himself and the country?” < snip > He added, “As to your second question, it depends on — the answer to that...

    With less than two weeks left before the 2020 presidential election, former White House deputy chief of staff Karl Rove said it would be more “effective” for the Trump campaign to focus on the economy as opposed to the Hunter Biden “scandal.” Rove made the statement on “America’s Newsroom” on Wednesday shortly after Trump 2020 Campaign National Press Secretary Hogan Gidley appeared on the program and explained the campaign strategy to focus on Hunter Biden and his international business dealings to attack Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

    Last week’s Democratic convention sought to make four points: Joe Biden is a decent man, Donald Trump is horrible, the president bungled the pandemic and Mr. Biden would have handled it better because he grasped the threat from the start. Whatever you think of the first three, the last is a fabrication. But the former vice president likes to say it anyway. In June he claimed President Trump “did not listen to guys like me back in January saying we have a problem, a pandemic is on the way.” In May Mr. Biden said, “If he had listened to me...

    RUSH: One of the things that he did during the speech, he launched into a narrative on COVID that, again, it was narrative. Just literally made it up, and it was an attempt at indicting Trump, criticizing Trump on not doing enough, not caring enough. And last night on the Laura Ingraham show on Fox, Karl Rove just destroyed Biden on this narrative. It’s sound bite number 6. And here it comes in three, two, one. ROVE: Late January, remember, he had said the China travel ban was hysteria and xenophobia. Early February he sent out his campaign to say...

    ... Joe Biden and other Democratic luminaries like to pretend all that’s happening in Portland is “peaceful protests.” That’s hardly the whole story. What’s also happening in the Rose City are violent late-night assaults on the country’s governing institutions in an attempt to undermine the rule of law. Russia and China could only hope to be as effective in damaging the U.S. and its global image as the thugs whose work we’ve seen for almost nine weeks. Nor is this the handiwork of both far-right and left provocateurs, as former Democratic National Chairman Donna Brazile claimed Monday. If there were...

    As the mainstream media all but declares the 2020 election for Joe Biden, Democrats are making mistakes. They’re saying and doing things that could cause problems—if Republicans step up their game. Consider the congressional logjam over police reform. After George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis, the nation was angry and aghast. Then Rayshard Brooks was killed in Atlanta, and the demand for change grew even stronger. Yet when the Senate moved to take up the comprehensive police reform bill introduced by Tim Scott (R., S.C.), Democrats blocked its consideration, despite the bill’s many similarities with the Democratic House’s measure. Sen. Scott...
