    A fine new report from the Public Policy Institute of California updates what we know about the state's political geography. For decades, the political divide in California was between the Democratic north and the Republican south. But in recent times, analysts have talked about a blue Democratic coast vs. the red Republican inland. PPIC's new report concludes that the coast vs. inland explanation isn't exactly right. When you dig deeply into the numbers, the state's real political divide puts the two former rivals -- Los Angeles County and the Bay Area -- on one side of the partisan divide, and...

    Rick Santorum won the North Dakota caucuses on Super Tuesday. CNN projected Santorum as the winner shortly after 10 p.m. ET, an hour after the caucuses ended. North Dakota didn't receive as much attention as other nine Super Tuesday states. Mitt Romney and Santorum visited the state once, according to the Associated Press. Ron Paul, on the other hand, visited multiple time and seemed like a good fit for the libertarian Republican: the state leans heavily toward independents. Paul, who drew large crowds of Tea Partiers there, decided to spend the evening of Super Tuesday in North Dakota. The state...

    Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) -- Newt Gingrich will become the third Republican presidential candidate to receive Secret Service protection. Service protection begins as early as Wednesday, according to a source from the Gingrich campaign. A spokesperson with the U.S. Secret Service would not confirm or comment on any details, deliberations or assessments related to providing service protection for Gingrich or any presidential candidate. The Gingrich campaign submitted paperwork requesting Secret Service protection in late February. Until now the former House speaker was paying a private security firm to protect Gingrich and his wife at public events....

    One of the many problems with ObamaCare is discovering that a self-bought policy is government run. What is the problem with a government policy? Well...it's government run. They get you coming and going. There's a pretend choice that is no choice, and even that non-choice is eventually forced out of business so that all is subsumed under the reality of a bureaucrat deciding if you get a heart bypass or a quick sendoff to the great beyond. Fake choices abound when dealing with politicians. That's why one simply must wonder about the Gingrich/Santorum splitting of the conservative vote. Who benefits?...

    OKLAHOMA CITY -- About 20 liberal demonstrators tried to shout down Rick Santorum while he delivered his stump speech on the steps of the state capitol building here Sunday, yelling "racist" and "fascist" at the Republican presidential candidate. The anti-Santorum faction began chanting "Get your hate out of our state" when the candidate started his address. Standing before a microphone at the top of the steps, Santorum ignored them and continued speaking. The demonstration lasted about 15 minutes.

"It's always harder when you've got to conservative running in the race as we have seen in Washington and we've seen in other states," Santorum said on Fox News Sunday. "We have the anti-Romney vote, if you will. Both Gingrich and I are slugging away." Santorum stopped short of calling for Gingrich to exit the...

We produced, in fact, four straight record budget surpluses, totaling $560 billion over those 4 years. You can check the historical record yourself at omb.gov. We achieved that not by raising taxes in return for supposed spending cuts, but by cutting tax rates to create booming growth, and cutting spending. The growth then...

    Rick Santorum was already known as starting from a deficit, delegate-wise, in Ohio.

According to the Ohio Republican Party tonight, the former Pennsylvania U.S. senator filed incomplete delegate slates in six additional Ohio districts. Altogether, this means Santorum, who until this week had a fair lead in polls in the Republican nominating race, could be ineligible for 18 Ohio district delegates. Ohio has 66 delegates total, 63 at stake next Tuesday. The candidate...
