    Democratic candidates won governorships in seven Republican-held states on Tuesday as voters rebuked both President Trump and unpopular GOP governors in some of the deepest red territories in the country. Democratic candidates picked up open seats in Maine, Nevada, Michigan and New Mexico where Republican incumbents faced term limits. State Sen. Laura Kelly (D) beat out controversial Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R), who ousted Gov. Jeff Colyer (R) in this year’s Republican primary. Billionaire hotel magnate J.B. Pritzker (D) easily outpaced Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) in a race that cost both men tens of millions of dollars....

    The ranks of Republican governors are poised to thin after this year’s midterm elections, and some party strategists are bracing for major Democratic gains even in some of the most conservative states in the country. Voters in 36 states will elect governors on Tuesday, including 26 states where Republicans currently hold the top job. Democrats are defending nine seats, and both sides are fighting over Alaska, where independent Gov. Bill Walker dropped his reelection bid late last month. Virtually all of the most contested races are being fought on Republican turf. Democrats are overwhelmingly likely to pick up governorships in...
  • A New Report Details How Nonprofits Are Funneling Millions To Democratic Governors (climate chg)

    A new report lays out how liberal nonprofits are funneling millions to Democratic governors to further their agenda. This not only brings up legal concerns, but also raises questions whether this represents “government for hire.” Democratic governors want to mobilize $50 million a year by 2020 for their climate policy agenda. Democratic California Gov. Jerry Brown’s upcoming global warming activist summit is part of an effort to funnels millions of dollars from nonprofits to state politicians to advance a liberal climate agenda, according to a new report. Brown’s so-called “Global Climate Action Summit” begins Wednesday and is sure to garner...

    As Donald Trump abdicates U.S. leadership and dismantles the democratic international order, prospects for global cooperation look bleak. Fortunately, America is more than Washington and the United States is more than the federal government. Around the nation, governors are going global. In states both red and blue, they are engaging governments abroad, partnering with foreign provinces, and promoting cross-border trade and action on climate change. The White House may be in retreat, but statehouses are not about to turn their back on globalization. At the forefront of this activism is the National Governors Association (NGA), which begins its annual summer...

    Melania Trump turned every head in the room when she walked in to the State Dinning Room at the White House Sunday in a black floor-length gown at the annual Governor’s Ball. The first lady looked absolutely stunning in the long-sleeve floral pattern lace gown that went down to the floor and was covered in sequins as she walked alongside President Donald Trump to greet the U.S. governors. Trump addressed the nation’s governors, who were in town for their annual winter meetings and praised his wife for making the room look more “beautiful” than he’s ever seen it. “Well, I...

    Jerry Brown, the governor of California, huddled on Sunday night with European, Brazilian and small-island leaders — gathered here for the 72nd session of the United Nations General Assembly, which formally begins on Tuesday — and pledged to work with them on climate change. On Monday he met with António Guterres, the United Nations secretary general, to discuss the future of the Paris agreement. In another era, meetings like these might have been the exclusive domain of the State Department. But with the Trump administration vowing to leave the Paris agreement on climate change — affirmed on Monday by Gary...

    Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has told governors from across the US to ditch the "America First" motto. His National Governors' Association speech in Rhode Island on Friday was a first for a Canadian prime minister. In his speech, Mr Trudeau urged US governors to embrace their neighbour to the north and avoid protectionism. It is all a part of his aggressive strategy to promote a "thinner border" ahead of vital trade talks with the US renegotiating the Nafta treaty. President Donald Trump has made "America First" his mantra, shaping his policies on trade and immigration. But Mr Trudeau, who is...

    Now that we're speaking of treason, here's the ongoing treason problem caused by the Dem refusal to respect the results of a legal election. And their willingness to collaborate with other countries against the United States. We've seen examples of this with unilateral declarations by states for the Paris Agreement. And now the foxes are headed to the henhouse. The annual summer meeting of the National Governors Association (NGA) is often a low-key and sometimes sleepy event...but what also has heightened focus on the meeting is the appearance of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, along with other officials from...

    Gov. Matt Bevin of Kentucky was unrestrained in his praise for President Trump: Opening for him at a rally on Monday, Mr. Bevin, a conservative Republican, echoed Mr. Trump’s “America First” slogan and only gently noted the nagging divisions in their party. “We now have a president and a Congress that are united in party, and yet we still have disagreements among us,” Mr. Bevin said, insisting, “This is healthy and good.” In private, Mr. Bevin has been blunter about the party’s disagreements. Just days before appearing with Mr. Trump in Louisville, he joined a conference call with the president’s...

    Promising to focus the federal government on the security of Americans, the economy and infrastructure, President Trump told the nation’s governor’s Monday at the White House they will have more authority under his administration. Trump said the federal government will do “whatever we can to restore authority to the states, when that is the appropriate thing to do,” aiming to “give you back a lot of the powers that have been taken away.” “We have to let the states compete and see who has the best solutions,” Trump said. “States are different. People are different.” But he said that, going...

    President Obama said in an interview released Monday that he could have beaten Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump “if I had run again.” In his most pointed critique yet, Obama said Hillary Clinton's campaign acted too cautiously out of a mistaken belief that victory was all but certain. “If you think you're winning, then you have a tendency, just like in sports, maybe to play it safer,” Obama said in the interview with former adviser and longtime friend David Axelrod, a CNN analyst, for his “The Axe Files” podcast. The president said Clinton “understandably . . . looked and said, well, given...

    December 27, 2016 President Obama claims he could have won a third term if he had been allowed to run – but even if he's right, his coattails haven’t done much for the rest of his party. While Obama’s tireless campaigning, broad demographic appeal and message of “hope” and “change” helped propel him to two terms in the White House, his skills on the stump haven’t translated down the ballot. The Democratic Party suffered huge losses at every level during Obama’s West Wing tenure. The grand total: a net loss of 1,042 state and federal Democratic posts, including congressional and...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A lawyer for former media baron Conrad Black urged the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday to overturn his fraud conviction, and several justices asked whether the federal law at issue was too vague. The Canadian-born Black, a member of Britain's House of Lords, has been in prison since March 2008, when he began serving a 6 1/2-year sentence for fraud and obstruction of justice. Attorney Miguel Estrada, representing Black and two ex-colleagues who were found guilty of defrauding shareholders of one-time newspaper publishing giant Hollinger International Inc, argued before the Supreme Court that all convictions in the...

    Top Republicans — including governors who convened an emergency conference call on Monday on which Trump was Topic A — expect the real estate mogul to carry as many as 10 states on Tuesday night, an outcome that would deal a body blow to Sen. Ted Cruz, who has staked his campaign heavily on the Southern states holding nominating contests, and to Sen. Marco Rubio, who has yet to win a primary and isn’t expected to do so on Tuesday.” “Trump’s march to the nomination has set off a wave of anxiety across the Republican Party establishment as top officials...
