    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/4/15 | David M. Drucker
    During a brief, little-noticed speech in May, Rep. Mick Mulvaney implored Republican presidential contenders and their supporters to stop tailoring their rhetoric to satisfy true believers and instead prioritize expanding the conservative tent. (SNIP) This concern was clearly influential in his decision to endorse Paul. Comparing the Kentucky senator with rival Republican contender Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Mulvaney had this to say in an interview with the Associated Press: "Ted is not bringing anybody new into the party. Rand is."
  • Mulvaney: Boehner Lacks Enough GOP Votes for Re-Election, His Future Depends on Dems Bail Him Out

    Breitbart News Network ^ | 8 Sep 2015 | Matthew Boyle
    Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) , one of the 28 Republicans who publicly supports replacing House Speaker Rep. John Boehner with a Republican alternative, told Breitbart News on Tuesday that Boehner does not have enough support within the Republican conference to win re-election with just Republican votes. Therefore, Mulvaney said, should there be a vote on a privileged resolution on a motion to vacate the chair of the House of Representatives — a fancy term for a vote to remove Boehner from the speakership — the only way Boehner can keep his job is if Democrats vote for him to bail...

    The last time there was a speaker vote, Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) didn't vote for John A. Boehner, protesting against the Ohio Republican by voting for no one. On Tuesday, he did vote for Boehner. And he had some not-so-nice things to say about the movement to try to defeat the top Republican. Below is his full statement, which is remarkably blunt and the kind of thing that is rarely seen from a member of Congress. (Seriously, it's worth reading the whole thing.)

  • Texas Gov. Perry shares economic strategy during Rock Hill visit with Mulvaney

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry's economic development strategy is simple: Have the federal government do what is constitutionally mandated and then get out of the way of the states. Let them compete, he says. The companies will go to the states that are the most nimble, with the right mix of regulations and taxes, the ability to educate workers and incentives that lessen risk, he said. "Competition is uncomfortable," he said Wednesday in Rock Hill. "But it's what has allowed America to maintain its edge." Perry stressed his philosophy with several different examples Wednesday before business leaders from York, Chester and...

    To say that Sheldon Adelson is a major political player would be like calling the Grand Canyon a big hole in the ground. Mr. Adelson certainly puts his money where his mind is or, perhaps one could say, where his interests lie. In 2012 alone, he donated around $100 million to Republican candidates and causes. So it’s little wonder that he is quite popular among many Republican politicians eager to gain his attention and his favor. Over the past year, Adelson has aggressively sought policy returns on his political investments, and he is leading some in the GOP down dangerously...

  • Mick Mulvaney's Summer Of Apostasy

    There's only a few weeks left until the summer recess swallows Congress' legislative agenda for 2014, but a group of key Republicans haven't given up immigration quite yet. Helping guide a secretive effort to informally gauge support for legislative action on the issue before August are two expected names: Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) and Paul Ryan (R-WI). But joining them is a young conservative lawmaker whose efforts on the issue have shocked conservative power brokers and prompted a behind-the-scenes backlash. “Absolutely,” Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) told Breitbart News, “I have been talking about immigration with my colleagues for months. Talking...

    RedState ^ | June 6th, 2014 | Daniel Horowitz
    Throughout America’s history, there has always been a bipartisan consensus that newly admitted immigrants should not become a public charge. With dependency soaring among native-born Americans and current immigrants, it makes no sense to allow in new people who will only swell the ranks of the welfare state. This objective rings true even from a liberal standpoint. After all, liberals desire to preserve the welfare state for Americans, and expanding the system to the entire western Hemisphere will facilitate the collapse of the system. Take a look at Section 212(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), and this sentiment...

    Reuters ^ | Thursday, July 28, 2011 | Dave Clarke and Richard Cowan
    A Republican plan to cut the budget deficit stumbled toward a vote in Congress on Thursday and its expected demise could force a compromise to avert an imminent and unprecedented debt default by the world's largest economy. With the measure short of as many as four votes, according to aides, the Republican-led House of Representatives abruptly delayed a vote as Speaker John Boehner struggled to overcome objections from conservative rebels in his own party. Republican Representative Mick Mulvaney, a supporter of the Tea Party movement that demands even deeper spending cuts, said he still would vote against the bill as...

    Rep. John Spratt (D-S.C.) trails Republican Mick Mulvaney by 10 points, 39 percent to 49 percent, with 10 percent of likely voters undecided, according to The Hill 2010 Midterm Election Poll. Mulvaney is winning independents by 23 points and leads among male, female, middle-aged and older voters. The only group Spratt leads is younger voters, but he’s winning that unpredictable voting group by a mere two points. Spratt’s favorability rating is 41 percent, with 47 percent rating him unfavorably. And 43 percent said Spratt’s 14 terms in Congress were a reason to vote against him. Spratt is the chairman of...

The ad reservations, confirmed by multiple sources tracking ad buys, show that the DCCC is continuing to reevaluate where to spend its resources in the final weeks of the campaign. In addition to Shuler, the DCCC has also increased its ad reservations for House Budget Committee Chair John Spratt (D-S.C.) and Rep.

On Wednesday, Columbia's Free Times published a story quoting Spratt Communications Director Wayne Wingate as saying, "If Osama bin Laden ran in this district as a Republican, he would get 38 to 40 percent of the vote in any election year." State Sen. Mick Mulvaney, R-Indian Land, is running against Spratt to represent South Carolina's 5th Congressional District in Washington. A day after the comment was published, Wingate said he was standing by...

    State Sen. Mick Mulvaney (R), who is challenging House Budget Chairman John Spratt (D), will be promoted today to the second-highest level of the National Republican Congressional Committee's "Young Guns" fundraising and campaign infrastructure program. The move to name Mulvaney as one of 22 "Contender" candidates comes ahead of what committee officials expect to be a strong first-quarter fundraising report. When he entered the race in October, Mulvaney's deep pockets were viewed as an attractive campaign asset. In the fourth quarter, he loaned himself $75,000, which helped him show more campaign receipts than Spratt for the three-month period. Spratt, a...

Currently Mulvaney is a state senator, but he now seeks national office, and, more specifically, the seat of Rep. John Spratt (D). Unseating Rep. Spratt will be no easy task. He’s a 14-term incumbent and Chairman of the Budget Finance Committee. In spite of this, Time Magazine named Sen. Mulvaney’s campaign to be of the...

He says the new numbers are better than expected. “We just only started the campaign and are already hard on his heels,” Mulvaney said. “That is particularly striking when you consider that he has been in Congress almost 30 years.” Speaking...

They almost succeeded in 1994 amidst the tsunami that swept Democrats from office all over the country. But that close call -- Spratt won with a mere 52% -- was not repeated in ’96 nor in subsequent years when a combination of the GOP’s national money and its local muscle never got that close again. By 2008, Spratt had nominal Republican opposition and won with 62% at the same time John...

Mulvaney's attorney collected 19 statements from Orlando residents, including some who said Dyer's paid campaign worker, Ezzie Thomas, either filled out their absentee ballots for them, took completed ballots in unsealed envelopes or urged them to mark their ballots for Dyer.

    The state's top law-enforcement agency on Tuesday intensified its investigation into Orlando's March elections, saying the probe into potential voting irregularities and fraud could result in racketeering charges. The decision to move forward with the investigation was made after Florida Department of Law Enforcement representatives reviewed its evidence, including seized absentee-ballot envelopes, with the State Attorney's Office. The FDLE would not confirm the focus of its investigation, but said it included Mayor Buddy Dyer's race for re-election. Dyer avoided a runoff with his closest opponent, political newcomer Ken Mulvaney, with just 234 votes to spare.
