    A third Senate Democrat has announced his intention to vote for Judge Neil Gorsuch, President Trump's Supreme Court nominee. "After meeting with Judge Gorsuch, conducting a thorough review of his record, and closely following his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, I believe that he is a qualified jurist who will base his decisions on his understanding of the law and is well-respected among his peers," Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly said in a statement. Donnelly joins Democratic colleagues Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, who both pledged last month to vote to confirm Gorsuch,...
  • DONNELLY: Jerry Brown’s California Legacy is a Dam Failure

    The Oroville Dam — at 770 feet, America’s tallest — is on the verge of failing. And Sacramento, which has been fiddling for decades while Rome burns, is running for cover. This isn’t just any dam; it’s the primary storage facility located on the Feather River for the State Water Project, the state-owned conveyance system that provides drinking water to more than two-thirds of California’s population. If the dam were to fail, it could inundate not only the city of Oroville but numerous other communities downstream, including Yuba City, Marysville and even West Sacramento. At the moment, the emergency spillway...

  • Karl Rove warns Tim Donnelly will hurt GOP candidates nationwide

    Karl Rove, the prominent Republican strategist, said Friday that Tim Donnelly will be a liability for Republicans nationwide if the tea party favorite finishes second in the gubernatorial primary election and advances to a November runoff against Gov. Jerry Brown. "If the California Republican Party has as the leading candidate, the leading statewide candidate on the ballot this year somebody who has said the outrageous things that he's said and prone to the outrageous behavior that he routinely engages in, it will be used to tarnish not only the California Republican Party, but they'll throw it at everybody else on...
  • Live California GOP debate: Heated moments between Donnelly, Kashkari

    LA Times ^ | Melanie Mason
    In their first, and probably only, debate, GOP gubernatorial hopefuls Tim Donnelly and Neel Kashkari sparred Thursday over who would be most likely to beat incumbent Gov. Jerry Brown, in the process exposing deep divisions over the direction of the state’s Republican Party. The approximately 90-minute event, moderated by the hosts of KFI AM 640’s conservative radio program “The John and Ken Show,” hit on a wide range of topics, from gun rights to Kasharki’s tenure at the U.S. Treasury Department. A fake skeleton played the role of Brown, underscoring the governor’s absence.

    Republican Neel Kashkari is dropping another $500,000 into his run for governor, his campaign said Friday, as Kashkari tries to overtake GOP rival Tim Donnelly in the final weeks of the campaign. The donation increases Kashkari's total personal contribution to the effort to $1 million. He announced the first $500,000 on Monday. Kashkari, a former U.S. Treasury Department official, lags behind Donnelly, a Twin Peaks assemblyman and tea party favorite, in early polls.

    LA Times ^ | Michael Finnegan
    Hours after former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney called for an increase in the minimum wage, Neel Kashkari, one of the party’s top candidates for governor of California, said such a move would be devastating to workers. The timing of the clash was awkward for Kashkari, a former investment banker from Laguna Beach. Romney is one of the Republican luminaries – including former Govs. Pete Wilson of California and Jeb Bush of Florida – whose support Kashkari has featured in campaign mail and TV advertising.

    BURLINGAME -- Booze-fueled parties Neel Kashkari and Tim Donnelly hosted at the California Republican Party’s biannual convention stretched into the early morning hours Sunday, their supporters dancing in ballrooms within steps of each other at the conference hotel. Yet the gulf between the two candidates for governor could hardly be wider, and a weekend of campaigning laid bare not only the differences between them, but persistent fissures within the GOP. A vocal, conservative base rallied for Donnelly, the tea party favorite, while Kashkari lobbied a more moderate segment of the electorate, including young Republicans, minorities and the party’s donor and...

    California Republican gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly took to CNN's Spanish-language airwaves recently to deny accusations that a campaign ad he shot with Cuban-Venezuelan actress Maria Conchita Alonso is racist. The candidate, who is also a state assemblyman, touted his Filipina wife as evidence that he's not prejudiced. "If I am a racist, I'm not a very good one," Donnelly said Thursday on CNN en Español's "Directo USA" show. "I must have gone to the wrong school where you learn how to be a racist because I married a woman with dark skin. As a matter of fact, her skin's darker...

    Little more than a week after millions of consumers received health care cancellation notices, lawmakers in both parties are pushing legislation to redeem President Barack Obama's long-ago pledge that anyone liking their coverage will be allowed to keep it under the nation's controversial new law. The result is a stern new challenge for the White House as it struggles to fix website woes for the signup portal for those seeking to enroll under the law, and simultaneously copes with angry consumers who rightly or wrongly blame "Obamacare" for cancellation letters mailed by insurers. Democratic officials said top administration aides got...
  • How Obamacare Will Subsidize Abortion

    National Review Online ^ | Sept 25, 2013 | Chuck Donovan
    With all the attention focused on Ted Cruz’s attempt to defund Obamacare in the continuing resolution, some of the law’s parade of horribles are momentarily out of view. Come October 1, those horribles will resume their onward march as the law’s impact on subsidizing elective abortion will begin to become clearer. One area that deserves special scrutiny is the feature known as Multi-State Plans (MSPs). This provision of Obamacare represented a partial victory for progressive forces who favored a national, single-payer system. In its place they accepted a category of health-insurance plans managed by the Office of Personnel Management under...

    In response to repeated queries from conservatives as to whether Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) is supporting the conservative Republican who defeated the 36-year incumbent for renomination this year, Human Events called Lugar’s office and asked whether the lameduck incumbent is backing State Treasurer Richard Mourdock, now locked in a tight contest with Democratic Rep. Joe Donnelly. “Yes, the senator is supporting Treasurer Mourdock,” Lugar press secretary Andy Fisher told us Friday. “On the night of the Friday election (when Mourdock defeated Lugar by a margin of 3-to-2), he said he would vote for him in November.” Fisher also pointed out...

    ABC ^ | 5/9/12 | Chris Good
    In a tough year for Senate campaigns, Democrats will take everything they can get. This year's map of Senate races heavily favors the GOP, which will defend only 10 seats to Democrats' 23. Six Democratic incumbents have declined to run, and Democrats will have to defend seats in 11 competitive races, while Republicans will only defend in five. All of which makes Sen. Dick Lugar's loss welcome news for Democrats, who seem to have figured all along that their candidate, Blue Dog Rep. Joe Donnelly, would fare better against Tea Party-backed, Saran Palin-endorsed state Treasurer Richard Mourdock in November. Now...

    The Hill ^ | May 9, 2011 | Shane D'Aprile
    Sen. Dick Lugar's (R-Ind.) campaign said Monday that State Treasurer Richard Mourdock (R) would meet the same electoral fate in 2012 that Republicans Sharron Angle and Christie O'Donnell did last November should he win the Senate nomination. Lugar is facing a tough primary challenge from the right in the form of Mourdock and has generated significant opposition from Tea Party groups, but his campaign is betting that Rep. Joe Donnelly's (D-Ind.) entry into the race will wake primary voters up to the electability argument. In a letter to Indiana Republicans on Monday, Lugar's political director warned them not to be...

    A state Assembly committee dominated by Democrats this morning killed two bills that sought to require public officials to report suspected illegal immigrants and prohibit employers from knowingly hiring the immigrants. Freshman Assemblyman Tim Donnelly, R-Twin Peaks, an activist with the Minuteman movement, proposed an Arizona-style crackdown on illegal immigrants because he said the federal government is doing an inadequate job protecting the borders.

    The left-Wing Whacko loons at Daily Kos, fresh off of their White House/Robert Gibbs mandated Drug testing, have a new outrage to be outraged about. Indiana's Joe Donnelly, the Democrat Congressman from North Central Indiana, can see the writing on the wall, and desperate to separate himself from "The Washington Crowd", is running an ad critical of what he calls "Obama/Pelosi Immigration Policies". The ad begins with Donnelly saying "I went down to the border to see for myself just how bad the situation really is..." And he ends with this, after telling about him voting for more border agents,...

    Sacramento, Calif. (AP) -- Just a few years ago, as head of California's largest Minuteman group, Tim Donnelly worked to fend off outsiders seeking to cross the state's borders. He now finds himself the outsider as he attempts to step into the political arena and take a seat in the state Legislature. Donnelly, 43, stands a strong chance of becoming the first tea party member to win high office in California. On Friday, the Secretary of State's office is expected to certify his 631-vote margin of victory for the Republican primary in the 59th Assembly District, which is split evenly...
