  • Tea party pulls out a modest victory in Nebraska Senate primary (27 points!)

    The victory notched by tea party Republicans in the Nebraska Senate race was modest, but they'll take it in a season that has yielded few bright spots so far. Ben Sasse won the GOP nomination for the seat being vacated by Sen. Mike Johanns, R-Neb. Sasse was the closest thing to a tea party candidate in the three-man race, largely because he feuded last fall with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the epitome of establishment Republicanism. But Sasse is hardly the out-of-right-field firebrand that some tea partyers cherish. A college president with degrees from Harvard and Yale, he worked for...

    Glenn Beck worked the crowd like a preacher at a rally this month in Louisville, Ky., declaring that God had responded to conservatives’ prayers by sending a slate of tea party candidates to wrest control of the Republican Party from Mitch McConnell. But there was a more earthly benefit to the arrangement that brought Beck to the rally. It was organized by the tea party nonprofit group FreedomWorks, which had endorsed the candidates — and which has paid more than $6 million in recent years to have Beck promote the group, its initiatives and events. ..............

    GOP Senate candidate Ben Sasse announced Thursday he raised more than $850,000 in the first quarter of the year, significantly more than his main challenger in the race. Sasse made the announcement on Twitter. Another Republican candidate, Shane Osborn, announced earlier this week he raised more than $550,000 in the first quarter of this year. Osborn is a former state Treasurer and Navy pilot and his main rival is Sasse, who serves as president of Midland University. Last week, conservative group FreedomWorks withdrew its endorsement of Osborn and said it would support Sasse instead. They are among four GOP contenders...

    In a major blow to former Republican state Treasurer Shane Osborn’s candidacy for Nebraska Senate, national conservative group FreedomWorks is withdrawing its endorsement and backing his main primary rival, Midland University President Ben Sasse, instead. At issue, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe said in a statement, is the unspoken support Osborn is believed to have from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.). “Both Osborn and Sasse are great people, and this was not a decision taken lightly. The question at the heart of this decision is, who would caucus with the Freedom Caucus, and who would fall in line with the...

    WASHINGTON, D. C. - A controversial Super PAC headed by former GOP congressman Steve LaTourette has spent $44,000 on mailings against the Tea Party Republican who is challenging his handpicked successor in Congress, Russell Township GOP congressman Dave Joyce. Federal Election Commission records show the Defending Main Street SuperPAC that LaTourette launched to support centrist Republicans against Tea Party challengers bought mailers against Bainbridge Township state legislator Matt Lynch on March 18. FEC records show the group also spent $200,000 in March on door hangers to support the re-election of Idaho Republican Rep. Mike Simpson, who chairs House Energy and...

In a wide-ranging interview Wednesday with The Hill, the conservative group’s president, Matt Kibbe said he believes one of the biggest to fall will be former National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (Texas). The group has already endorsed his primary challenger, Katrina Pierson. The grassroots group could also have its eye on the Senate’s top GOP leader.

    It took a tea party insurrection that disabled the federal government and wrecked the Republican brand, but after months of handwringing, establishment Republicans are preparing to attack ultra-conservative ideologues across red America. From Alabama to Alaska, the center-right, business-oriented wing of the Republican Party is gearing up for a series of skirmishes that it hopes can prevent the 2014 mid-term election from turning into another missed opportunity. But this will not be a coordinated operation. It will be messy, ugly, and prone to backfiring. And if the comeback succeeds, it will be in fits and starts, most likely culminating in...

    The only thing missing from the anti-Lindsey Graham rally was the senator himself. But there was a Graham cardboard cutout for people to get their picture taken with — and to direct their political anger. More than 14 months before the election, some Republicans are making it clear they are not happy with the state’s senior senator, calling him too easy to compromise with the Obama White House. And though their numbers might be small and their event Tuesday night high on theatrics, the dislike for Graham among the 100-plus people at the FreedomWorks town hall rally in North Charleston...

The Facebook spots link to a letter that notes “a number of Senators have joined Mike Lee’s efforts to defund ObamaCare.” The Utah Republican’s efforts are essentially a defacto threat to shut down the government if funding for the 2010 health care law is not eliminated. “Now some are getting cold feet,” FreedomWorks continued. “Senator John Cornyn – one of the original supporters – has bowed to the Republican...

    In South Carolina, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham has been attacked in television ads for his support of immigration reform. In Tennessee, GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander is ducking criticism from Tea Party groups that his overall voting record is too moderate. Kentucky’s Mitch McConnell, the Senate Republican leader, faces angry conservatives in his state for not joining an effort by some in his party to block the federal budget unless it defunds Obamacare. For these Republicans, the only uniting factor is that the criticism is coming from their own party. The reasons they are under attack vary from one group to...

Pickering, President Bush exercised his prerogative to put him on the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals while the Senate was in recess. Senate Democrats stymied Pickering's nomination through procedural obstacles when they were in the majority and finally resorted to a filibuster when faced with the certainty of confirmation if a floor vote were taken. In a statement Friday, Bush said that he was using his constitutional authority to appoint Pickering because "a minority of Democratic Senators has been using unprecedented obstructionist...
