    Rep. Kevin Cramer, a North Dakota Republican, announced Thursday he will not challenge sitting Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in the Senate race this fall. During an interview with KFYR radio, Cramer said he and his family decided the best decision was for him to just run again for his House seat. The move is seen as a blow to Republicans who hope to pick up the seat in the traditionally deep red state. 10 Senate seats most likely to flip in 2018 Senate candidate: Obama's birth certificate is a 'phony document' Joe Arpaio, controversial sheriff pardoned by Trump, enters Arizona...

    Washington (CNN)The most interesting Senate race in 2018 might have nothing to do with whether Republicans or Democrats control the chamber after this year's midterm elections. The decision Tuesday by Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah to retire teed up Mitt Romney -- the 2012 Republican presidential nominee turned leading intra-party critic of President Donald Trump -- to run for a job that would give him major influence over the remainder of Trump's presidency. But Hatch is a Republican. Romney is a Republican. And if Romney is stopped, it'll be because another Republican won the nomination in Utah. It'll be a...

    <p>OKLAHOMA CITY — Democrats have swept special elections for a state House vacancy from the Tulsa area and a state Senate vacancy from Oklahoma City, both vacated by Republicans who resigned.</p> <p>In House District 75, which includes portions of east Tulsa and north Broken Arrow, unofficial results show voters picked Democrat Karen Gaddis over Republican Tressa Nunley on Tuesday. Both were vying to replace former Republican state Rep. Dan Kirby, who resigned this year after two former legislative assistants accused him of sexual harassment. Kirby has admitted he used poor judgment but denied harassing legislative aides.</p>
  • Sanders calls on Trump to come to Congress over Syria strikes

    THE HILL ^ | APRIL 9, 2017 | BY MALLORY SHELBOURNE -
    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday said President Trump did not have the authority to launch missile strikes on the Syrian regime and called on the president to seek approval from Congress before any other actions. “I think he has got to come to the United States Congress. I think he has got to explain to us what his long-term goals are,” Sanders told NBC’s “Meet the Press.” Trump last week ordered the U.S. military to conduct missile strikes on a Syrian airfield believed to be the launching point of a chemical weapons attack that killed at least 70 civilians....

    WDEL ^ | 25 February 2017 | DJ McAneny & Joe Irizarry
    As of Saturday night, the unofficial elections results being reported by the State of Delaware Department of Elections indicated Stephanie Hansen has won the special election for the District 10 seat vacated by now-Lt. Governor Bethany Hall-Long. With the win, Hansen, a Democrat, retains the party's majority control of the chamber and, in fact, the state. Delaware remains one of about five states where Democrats hold the legislature and the governor's seat. Hansen declared shortly before 9 p.m. that she'd defeated Republican John Marino and Libertarian Joe Lanzendorfer on Twitter. Unofficial totals from the Department of Elections said she won...

    I had the best time today. I decided to take my family to the Trump Rally. It was so much fun. I left for the Rally around 2 o'clock and got there about 3:45. I parked in the Dollar General which I THOUGHT was close....Haha. Nope had to walk a mile to the end of the line. Once we were in line, it was so much fun being among patriots. It really brought home that we are going to be ok. We were immediately behind 3 Law School young guys from University of Florida and a young Lady who was...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6UHZOnuHRw8 This is why you will see all over the web, the conspiracy that Melania is abused. I have seen it on Twitter, CNN, and all sorts of media places. I cannot begin to say how liberals are bigots. I will say it everyday until it is on everyones minds and becomes mainstream. I am trying because it is so true.

    I went to see Patriot's Day today. Wow is all I can say. It made me so proud to be an American and even moreso the day before the greatest day for our country. I recommend this movie so much. Mark Walburg is a treasure with the movies he is putting out. Let me just say, if this guy is not a Republican then I don't know what to say. The dude goes to Mass everyday and then twice on Sunday because he enjoys the early morning Mass and takes the family to the later Mass. Come on he has...
  • Zika Funding Fails Again in Congress

    NBC News ^ | September 6, 2016 | Maggie Fox
    Congress came back from a seven-week break Tuesday and once again failed to move forward a bill that would pay for a federal Zika response. As senators traded barbs about whose fault it was, Florida health officials said they'd found seven more home-grown cases of Zika, six of them part of an outbreak in Miami Beach. Florida now has documented 56 locally transmitted cases of Zika infection, presumably passed by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes that are active nearly year round in south Florida.
  • The interesting thing that happened when Kansas cut taxes and California hiked them

    The Washington Post ^ | June 17, 2016 | By Jim Tankersley and Max Ehrenfreund
    In 2012, voters in California approved a measure to raise taxes on millionaires, bringing their top state income tax rate to 13.3 percent, the highest in the nation. Conservative economists predicted calamity, or at least a big slowdown in growth. Also that year, the governor of Kansas signed a series of changes to the state's tax code, including reducing income and sales tax rates. Conservative economists predicted a boom. Neither of those predictions came true. Not right away -- California grew just fine in the year the tax hikes took effect -- and especially not in the medium term, as...

    Politics PA ^ | 15 June 2016 | Nick Fields
    Earlier today, Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy started a filibuster on the Senate floor on the subject of gun violence. Murphy has been perhaps the most passionate gun safety advocate since the Sandy Hook shooting occurred in his home state in 2012. Over the past few hours, Sen. Murphy has been joined by a number of his colleagues including Pat Toomey. Pennsylvania’s junior Senator has been one of the few Republican members to advocate in favor of gun safety measures. “I’m of the view that it’s time to get something done here,” Toomey began. “We’ve done a lot of talking.” Sen....

    “This skit was outright sacrilege. They know if they did this to Muslims they’d have to be put into the witness protection program,” the singer-actor said. Pat Boone is calling out NBC and Saturday Night Live for allegedly being anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, cowardly, “diabolical” and even demonic for a skit over the weekend that parodied God’s Not Dead 2, the actor-singer’s latest movie. In God’s Not Dead 2, Melissa Joan Hart plays a public school teacher who is persecuted for answering a student’s question about Jesus. In the SNL skit, a trailer for a movie called God is a Boob Man...

    The militant group Al-Shabaab -- Al Qaeda's affiliate in Somalia -- has released a recruitment video featuring GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump. The more-than 51-minute propaganda video comes on the heels of a war of words between Trump and Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton over her suggestion that the real estate mogul's controversial remarks about Muslims would be used to recruit jihadis. The video includes a clip of Trump calling for a "shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States. "Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can...

    To keep up with the adventures of the Keswani family, visit PEOPLE.com/keswanis. It's been a big year for the transgender community, thanks in large part to Caitlyn Jenner. But not every member of the community is 66: Devina Keswani, the youngest of three children in PEOPLE's new web series, The Keswanis: A Most Modern Family, and a proud Girl Scout, is just 6. "One [of my classmates] hates transgender, and he hates me because I'm transgender," Devina says, adding, "Before that he liked me, but now he hates me. He spits at me and pushes me."

    Fox News ^ | 30 October 2015 | Senate passes budget and debt deal, sends measure to Obama
    In a rare late-night session, the Senate gave final approval to an ambitious budget and debt deal early Friday, sending it to President Barack Obama to sign. The final vote on passage was 64-35, as Democrats joined forces with Republican defense hawks over the objections of GOP presidential candidates Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio, all of whom voted against the deal. The bill is aimed at averting a debt default, avoiding a partial government shutdown and setting spending priorities for the next two years. Earlier in Friday's session, the Senate voted 63-35 to end debate on the measure....

    Gravity Payments, that Seattle credit-card-payments processing company that said all its employees would earn at least $70,000 in three years, is defying the doomsayers. Revenue is growing at twice the rate it was before Chief Executive Dan Price made his announcement this spring, according to a report on Inc.com. Profits have doubled. Customer retention is up, despite some who left because they disagreed with the decision or feared service would suffer. (Price said he’d make up the extra cost by cutting his own $1.1 million pay.) Barely any employees have left — although some outsiders, including some commenting on a...

    NASHVILLE -- Police were seeking three suspects early Wednesday after three college students were shot across the street from the Tennessee State University campus. Authorities told CBS Nashville affiliate WTVF-TV gunfire rang out shortly after the suspects weren't allowed into a massive house party. The victims were taken to area hospitals. Police said one was in very critical condition after being shot in the head. The wounds to the others were described as non-life threatening. As many as 200 people were at the party at the time of the shooting. The victims attend TSU, Nashville State and Middle Tennessee State...

    Lawyers for Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis say the marriage licenses issued by her office are binding — and no further action is required by a federal judge to change them. "Marriage licenses are being issued in Rowan County, which [Kentucky Gov. Steven Beshear] and Kentucky attorney general have approved as valid, which are recognized by the Commonwealth of Kentucky, and which are deemed acceptable by the couples who received them," her lawyers said in court filings Tuesday.
