    U.S. Senator Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign on Wednesday announced that it has named a chairman in all 171 counties that comprise the first four early states – 99 Iowa counties, 10 New Hampshire counties, 46 South Carolina counties, and 16 Nevada counties. “The only way we will turn our country around is through a grassroots uprising of the American people, and I’m grateful for the many courageous conservatives in the early states who have stepped forward to lead that grassroots movement,” Cruz said. “I’ve always known we would have a great organization, but having a leader the 171 counties that...

    Senator Ted Cruz of Texas got an early start to the 2016 presidential campaign in March by being the first of what would become a vast field to announce his candidacy. Now, he has turned that starting advantage into a sprawling ground game. For every county in the first four voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada, the Cruz campaign has locked down county chairs in charge of not just lending their names to the campaign, but of spearheading outreach and organizing efforts. “The only way we will turn our country around is through a grass-roots uprising...

    Wednesday night I wasn’t surprised as candidate Donald Trump, in keeping within his narcissistic, xenophobic character, told an overflow crowd at Keene High School that if he became president he would send all Syrian refugees who had been given sanctuary in the United States, home: “I’m putting (refugees) on notice that are coming here from Syria as part of this mass migration that if I win, they’re going back,” he said. However, what both surprised and disappointed me was the boisterous affirmative response to Trump — cheers and hurrahs from the crowd, presumably mostly New Hampshirites, in support of Trump’s...

Last Wednesday, the day the front-runner for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination was in New Hampshire alleging that Syrian refugees fleeing for their lives may actually be clandestine terrorists, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee was in Washington, talking sense. "Donald Trump will not be the nominee," Romney told a group of business-school students at Georgetown University. And why won't Trump, who when he isn't besmirching Syrian refugees as terrorists is maligning Mexican immigrants as rapists, get the nod? Because, Romney said, "when all is said and done, the...

    Sanders closing in on Hillary About a month ago, we learned that Donald Trump and Ben Carson were in a virtual dead heat in Iowa. People naturally wondered if the polling would be borne out nationwide, or if it was a local anomaly. A couple of weeks later we started to receive word that Trump’s lead was shrinking and Ben Carson was closing in - fast. Still, Trump supporters were sure those polls were outliers since there was no way “the Donald” could be losing ground to an “OK doctor who hasn’t created enough jobs.” Now, however, they’re being forced...

    Ohio Gov. John Kasich said Friday the United States should establish no-fly zones and sanctuaries along Syria's border with Jordan and Turkey, and warn aggressors, specifically Russian President Vladimir Putin, that they violate those buffers at their own risk. Campaigning in New Hampshire, the Republican presidential hopeful said the U.S. must send a message that military retaliation is a guarantee, not an idle threat, if conditions are not met. "You enter that no-fly zone, you enter at your own peril," Kasich said. "No more red lines, no more looking the other way. If any hostile aircraft should enter that, there...

Less than two years later, Paul’s luck, it seems, is running out. Campaigning on Friday in New Hampshire, Paul continues to charge ahead with his struggling presidential campaign, but speculation is growing that he might be the next Republican candidate to drop out of the race.

Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, however, lead Trump by 20 points, 57-37 percent... This poll, it should be said, should be taken with a certain grain of salt. The poll’s sample is split 46 percent Democrat, 38 percent Republican and only 17 percent Independent. That composition is completely different than the 2012 electorate, according to exit polls.

In the past six years, those limits have been tested in various ways. But in the current presidential campaign, the lines are being blurred even more and no candidate is testing the legal limits more visibly or blatantly than Carly Fiorina, whose performance in Wednesday night's Republican debate has thrust her candidacy into the spotlight. -snip-...

    Autographing photos of himself on the campaign trail, U.S. Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush held up one that showed him heavier by 40 pounds (18 kilograms) and another of the slimmed-down campaign model. "That's a low-energy picture," Bush, 62, chuckled after the portly version was thrust into his hands in Salem, New Hampshire, site of a town hall event. "This is a high-energy picture," he said of the skinnier Jeb photo. The anecdote encapsulates Bush's challenge as he prepares for Wednesday's second debate of Republicans seeking their party's presidential nomination: How to show more energy without losing his calm, steady-at-the-helm...

    In advance of Wednesday's Republican presidential debate, conservatives are mounting a campaign to get the candidates to pledge that if elected they won't nominate moderate Supreme Court judges like Chief Justice John Roberts, and Justices David Souter and Anthony Kennedy. "No More Roberts, Souters or Kennedys" is the rallying cry of the effort from the Judicial Crisis Network, led by Carrie Severino, a former clerk to Republican Justice Clarence Thomas. Souter retired in 2009. The group on Monday is launching the first part of a campaign to get the GOP candidates to pledge they will name strictly Constitutional conservatives. The...

    Showing no signs of a slowdown heading into the fall, Donald Trump leads the Republican Presidential field in each of the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. Trump's lead in New Hampshire is especially large and he's up double-digits in South Carolina. In Iowa, it's become a two-man field for the moment, as Dr. Ben Carson is closer to Trump than anyone in any state, and together the two political newcomers have distanced themselves from the rest of the pack.
  • Washington Post: It might be time for Hillary Clinton to start panicking

    The latest piece of bad news for Hillary Rodham Clinton came in the form of a Quinnipiac poll out of Iowa on Thursday morning: Bernie Sanders, 41 percent and Clinton, 40 percent. Clinton, a presidential candidate, has dropped 11 points in two months in the state and now one in three self-identified Democrats say she is not honest or trustworthy. The poll numbers come just days after NBC and Marist College released twin surveys in Iowa and New Hampshire that also spelled trouble for Clinton. She led Sanders in Iowa 38 percent to 27 percent — less than half her...

    Politico ^ | 9/10/15 | Burgess Everitt
    Ted Cruz says his hard-line strategy to defund Planned Parenthood and risk a government shutdown is about doing the “right thing” and following through on Republicans' vows to conservative voters. But many of his Republican colleagues say it’s really all about Cruz. Even some of his closest allies from past battles— fellow tried and true tea party Republicans like Sen. Mike Lee of Utah — aren’t exactly jumping to join Cruz’s latest crusade. Same goes for Cruz’s onetime allies-turned-presidential rivals, Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida and Rand Paul of Kentucky. As the Texas Republican prepares for a potentially decisive month...
