    Georgia Democrat Stacey Abrams called the Electoral College "racist" during remarks Friday at the National Press Club. . . . Abrams has become a Democratic star since her narrow loss in the Georgia governor's race in 2018. She never conceded defeat, claiming Republicans and her opponent Brian Kemp engaged in systematic voter suppression.
  • Democrats Abrams, Gillum question outcomes of 2018 gubernatorial races

    Former Democratic gubernatorial candidates Stacey Abrams and Andrew Gillum this week questioned the outcomes of their 2018 gubernatorial races -- suggesting that they, rather than their Republican opponents, should be in the governor seats. Gillum, the former mayor of Tallahassee who lost to now-Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the state’s gubernatorial race in November, hinted on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” that both he and Abrams got enough votes to win their races, and that Abrams' may have been influenced by her opponent already being in office. “Stacey juiced as many Dems as she could out of the state...

    The 2018 midterms were a disaster for House Republicans. Democrats gained 40 seats, retook the majority, and, to our horror, Nancy Pelosi is speaker again. They were elected to stop Trump, to block him at every turn, and lead the effort for his impeachment and removal from office. Any Democrat who says otherwise is lying. The base demands Trump go at all costs. The younger, feistier Democrats say that openly. The older crew tries to downplay it, but ultimately that’s their goal. They’re banking heavily that the report by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the DOJ’s Russia probe,...
  • 2018, the Year of the Worker

    If 2017 was the year of the investor -- with stock market gains of more than 25 percent during President Donald Trump's first year in office -- then 2018 was undoubtedly the year of the American worker. These past 12 months have slammed Wall Street hard, with half of 2017's stock blockbuster gains surrendered. But for now, prosperity has rotated to Main Street USA, where things have rarely been better than in 2018. The bears on Wall Street of the last few weeks have dominated the headlines, but those losses have obscured the steady bullish gains for workers. Not in...

     Democrats have short memories. That can be the only explanation for their shoddy, immature, and ultimately laughable assertion that the Georgia gubernatorial election was stolen from them. Democrat Stacey Abrams acknowledged her defeat after a prolonged legal battle showed that she would be unable to trigger a recount or a runoff, as Republican Brian Kemp maintained his two-point lead (50/48). Granted, she admitted defeat, she did not technically concede. She feels that the election was illegitimate, and refuses to call Kemp a legitimate governor. Here’s what she said last Sunday (via WaPo): As the Associated Press called the Georgia governor’s...

    Broward County once again proves that incompetence and ineptitude are the heart of their election process. Throughout this whole process, the county, a Democratic bastion, and it’s equally disastrous and liberal neighbor, Palm Beach County, have made a mockery of the 2018 election with their inability to count the friggin’ ballots. Republican Gov. Rick Scott had to file lawsuits in order to shed some light into their ballot counting processes, which a judge later found to be in violation of public records laws. They wouldn’t disclose how many outstanding ballots were left. Scott had declared victory over incumbent Sen. Bill...

    It's been more than one week since polls closed on Election Night in Florida, with tight national races and recount efforts again spotlighting the Sunshine State. In Broward and Palm Beach Counties, there have been a slew of ballot issues. Election officials in both counties have a history of incompetence and corruption. Broward County Election Supervisor Brenda Snipes was convicted for illegally destroying ballots in 2016 and has a long record of questionable practices.

    Joe Scarborough: Nancy Pelosi fanboy. On today's Morning Joe, Scarborough scolded Democrats seeking to prevent Pelosi from becoming Speaker. Joe repeatedly praised Pelosi as highly "competent," and analogized her to Alex Cora, manager of the World Series-winning Red Sox. Scarborough said that dumping Pelosi: "would really be like the Red Sox asking if they were going to keep Alex Cora or not . . . Why get rid of your Alex Cora after a championship season?"Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

He’s even publicly outlined Trump investigations he wants to see other committees run, so we expect they’ll have very little on their agenda beyond that sort of political messaging,” a Republican HPSCI aide told The Daily Caller News Foundation Tuesday.

    Two former aides to the late senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) are publicly criticizing the Republican Party for seeking to cast doubt on the results of the Senate race in Arizona, where Democrat Kyrsten Sinema is narrowly edging out Republican Martha McSally. The tweets by Mark Salter on Saturday and John Weaver on Sunday come amid ramped-up scrutiny of the race, in which Sinema leads by a little more than one percentage point.

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., NY) said Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation helped more than hurt the Democratic Party in last week's midterm elections. . . . "I think the president lost more votes because of the Kavanaugh issue than gained throughout the country," Schumer added. Schumer was responding to a question from "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper about whether the Democrats got "outplayed when it came to the Kavanaugh nomination."

    “Recognize one point,” Pelosi told me during an interview in the conference room of her minority-leader suite in the Capitol late Friday: “What Mueller might not think is indictable could be impeachable.” Pelosi said people should pray for the country as long as Trump is in charge. She’s not sure of his mental condition. She thinks he’s degraded the Constitution and American values.

    Republican Brian Kemp is pressing Democrat Stacey Abrams to concede Georgia’s tight gubernatorial race as civil rights groups urge her to stay and fight. Kemp’s campaign issued a statement Saturday that said it was mathematically impossible for Abrams to even force a runoff, much less win outright. It called Abrams’ refusals to concede “a disgrace to democracy” that “completely ignore the will of the people.” . . On Saturday, she released a statement that she had met with voters who experienced difficulties casting ballots. She said her campaign had heard stories of voters turned away from the polls, students and...

    The Democratic Party of Georgia tweeted Saturday evening that a "handful" of Georgia counties reported thousands of "new" absentee, early, and Election Day votes not accounted for by Republican candidate Brian Kemp. Kemp, who resigned as secretary of state on Thursday, maintains a lead and has asserted victory, even though Abrams has yet to concede.
