  • John Kasich is getting the band back together in New Hampshire, perhaps with an eye on 2020

    08/16/2016 11:31:23 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 46 replies
    CLEVELAND, Ohio – John Kasich will return this month to New Hampshire, site of one of his brightest moments as a Republican presidential candidate earlier this year. The Ohio governor will be in the state Aug. 28-29 for a reunion with his supporters there and to campaign and raise money for GOP gubernatorial hopeful Chris Sununu. Sununu is competing in a September primary. His brother, former U.S. Sen. John E. Sununu, was one of the highest-profile surrogates for Kasich's unsuccessful White House bid.

    Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) is trailing her Democratic rival, Gov. Maggie Hassan, by 10 points in what has been one of the tightest Senate races in the country, according to a new poll from WBUR Radio. The poll, which was conducted between July 19 and Aug. 1, shows 50 percent of respondents saying they would vote for Hassan if the election were held today, compared with 40 percent for Ayotte. Ayotte is one of the most vulnerable GOP senators up for reelection in a year in which Republicans can afford to lose only three seats if they hope to maintain...

    Hillary Clinton has received a small convention bounce, lifting the Democratic nominee back into a narrow lead over Donald Trump across 11 swing states, according to the latest wave of the YouGov/CBS News 2016 Battleground Tracker.

    our political class is still violating our sovereignty and security with endless migrants from the Middle East. We have so many emergencies within our national security apparatus and military that can and should be addressed within the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), yet the GOP-Senate chose to focus on more immigration as their final act before recess. The Senate passed the Shaheen, D-N.H.

The Republicans reserved space on the campus bulletin board and followed all school regulations. But the BLM radicals removed the display without permission, saying that it was "offensive" to blacks and "white supremacist."

Those senators–hailing from Illinois, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and North Carolina—are being buffeted by big forces largely out of their control as they try to hang onto their seats. Their fate will determine whether Republicans keep control of the Senate, where they currently have a 54-46 advantage. The predicament of these GOP senators comes into clearer focus in the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, completed just last week, which helps crystallize three big complications they...

    It’s not that last night’s contests in Idaho, Hawaii, Michigan and Mississsippi doomed Marco Rubio’s campaign; it’s that the four bad performances atop Rubio’s previous disappointments — New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada, and just about everywhere else not called Minnesota and Puerto Rico – have now created what feels like an insurmountable perception of defeat.

In interviews, even lifelong Republicans who cast a ballot for Mr....
