  • Sessions weighing bid to win back former Senate seat

    NYPost ^ | November 8, 2018
    Dumped Attorney General Jeff Sessions is weighing a bid to win back his old Senate seat in Alabama, a report said. Sessions, fired by President Trump a day after Republicans lost control of the House in the midterm elections, left the seat in 2017 when he was nominated to head up the Justice Department. But Sessions could run against Democrat Doug Jones, who won a special election in December 2017 to fill the seat and is up for re-election in 2020, Politico reported late Wednesday.

    Two key players in the battle over Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh — moderate Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) — face primary concerns in the next election cycle that could hinge on the outcome of this month’s confirmation fight. Collins is likely to face a primary challenge in 2020 if she votes against Kavanaugh and runs for reelection, predicted one veteran Maine Republican on Tuesday, though it’s not yet certain whether she intends to seek another six-year term.

    Conservative commentator and outspoken "Never Trump" critic Bill Kristol says he is building a "war machine" within the Republican party to challenge President Trump's 2020 reelection campaign, according to CNBC. Kristol told the network that he's preparing "for a primary run against Trump," adding that Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) is on his shortlist of possible candidates. Kasich was unsuccessful in his 2016 bid for the Republican presidential nomination, only managing to beat Trump in his home state. Kristol also said Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.) and outgoing Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) are also being considered. “We are thinking of and...

    A candidate endorsed by the Trump administration has won the Republican nomination for a U.S. House seat in New Hampshire, and he’d be the state’s first black congressman if elected in November. Eddie Edwards, of Dover, won a six-way race in Tuesday’s GOP primary for the 1st Congressional District. Edwards is a Navy veteran who also served as a police chief and as chief enforcement officer for the state liquor commission.
  • Trump wins again....McSally & Ducey win primary election in Arizona.

    POTUS Trump endorsed candidates win in Arizona this evening. Republican, Martha McSally (Senate) & Republican, Doug Ducey (Governor) have easily won their primary races tonight. McSally will go on to be elected Senator from Arizona and, Ducey will be easily re-elected and maintain his Governor position. No Democrat "Blue Wave" in Arizona!!! Ducey will soon declare who he is appointing to serve the remainder of the Senate term of passed on, Senator John McCain. Hopefully he will appoint Ms. Kelli Ward to that assignment, rather then a McCain family member.

    Two Republicans cast themselves as potential successors to embattled Rep. Chris Collins (R-N.Y.) after he announced he would suspend his reelection campaign Saturday while he faces insider trading charges. New York businessman and former gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino and Erie County Comptroller Stefan Mychajliw both tweeted out their candidacies that same day. Paladino tweeted, “I’m all in! #NY27,” referring to the state's deeply red 27th Congressional District. Mychajliw tweeted that he too is “all in.”

    Here's an amazing stat: In the last 14 contested Republican primaries where President Donald Trump has endorsed a candidate, his pick has won -- or is leading -- all 14 times. That's remarkable. (Hat tip to WaPo's James Hohmann for doing the math!) And it speaks to the fact that despite Trump's weak numbers among the general populace, he remains a massively powerful force within the GOP -- someone who can make and break candidacies with a single tweet. Take Tuesday night. Trump endorsed John James in Michigan's Republican Senate primary, Bill Schuette in the Michigan governor's race and Kris...

    President Donald Trump doubled down on his support for U.S. Army combat veteran John James in Michigan’s Republican primary for U.S. Senate just over one week after fully endorsing him. Trump called James “a potential Republican Star” and hinted he would be the best candidate to take on Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow in the Nov. 6 general election. The tweet comes after Trump gave James his full endorsement in late July, telling voters to get out and vote Aug. 7. Donald J.

    President Donald Trump has weighed in on the Kansas gubernatorial race. Just a day before Republican voters head to polls to pick their nominee for governor, Trump tweeted his support for Secretary of State Kris Kobach. Noting that Kobach was an early supporter of his, Trump called the GOP candidate “a fantastic guy who loves his State and our Country.” “(H)e will be a GREAT Governor and has my full & total Endorsement! Strong on Crime, Border & Military,” Trump continued.

The Republicans, across the board, are amassing hundreds of thousands of votes more then Democrats. The Democrat vote turn out was dismal to say the least. Marsha Blackburn will be elected the next Senator of Tennessee Texas, Florida, Georgia & now Tennessee will be "bright red" come election day in November, 2018.

    Rep. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) is the front-runner in Arizona’s heavily contested GOP Senate primary, but she still trails Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.) in a hypothetical general election match-up, according to a new poll. A poll conducted by Phoenix-based OH Predictive Insights (OHPI) has McSally ahead by 8 points over her toughest primary opponent, former state Sen. Kelli Ward (R), 35 percent to 27 percent. Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is far behind in third, with 15 percent. Twenty-three percent of voters remain undecided going into Arizona’s primary on Aug. 28.

    There is no love lost between state Sen. Kelli Ward and Rep. Martha McSally, the two top Arizona Republicans vying to represent the party in November's Senate election. But their race has grown so contentious roughly a month before Republican voters pick their nominee that Ward, who's challenging McSally from the right, is making the case that it would be "disingenuous" for her to support McSally should the sitting congresswoman win the nomination. Arizona is one of the few states where Democrats believe they are in a position to flip a Senate seat this fall. Arizona narrowly backed President Donald...

    Georgia Secretary of State Brian Kemp (R) completed his surprise comeback on Tuesday, claiming the Republican nomination for governor after winning late endorsements from President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. Kemp, serving his second term as secretary of State, bested Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle (R) in a low-turnout runoff two months after Cagle finished first in the primary, the Associated Press reported. Cagle called Kemp to concede the race about an hour-and-a-half after polls closed, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. In the end, the contest wasn't even close. With 36 percent of the vote reporting, Kemp had taken 69 percent....

    Marian Johnson says if DeSantis is the GOP's nominee, it could be curtains for party in November. Marian Johnson has tracked political trends in Florida for a long time. The senior vice president for political strategy at the Florida Chamber of Commerce says the Republican race for governor between Adam Putnam and Ron DeSantis is so volatile it could go either way, and could wreck the GOP come November. "The tide is going right now in Mr. DeSantis' way," Johnson told leaders of Floridians for Better Transportation in St. Petersburg Monday. She said the latest polling data she has seen...
