    NBC News ^ | JUL 12 2016, 5:15 PM ET
    Donald Trump will showcase his vice presidential pick at a public event on Friday, multiple sources tell NBC News. Trump's possible picks are thought to be narrowed to three candidates: Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. While the joint appearance is expected on Friday, it's not clear whether or not the identity of the pick could be released or could leak earlier in the week. Trump is scheduled to attend a fundraiser and rally in Indiana Tuesday night with Pence; he campaigned with Christie on Monday and with Newt Gingrich last...

    Aparently, the disapproval ratings of both presumptive presidential nominees is driving people crazy. And according to an obituary posted in the Richmond Times-Dispatch Tuesday, the choice was just too much to bear for one woman. Mary Anne Noland’s obituary stated that instead of choosing between Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton and GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump, the 68-year-old opted instead to "pass into the eternal love of God." “Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God on Sunday, May 15, 2016,...

    Ask a hundred U.S. citizens what the country needs more than anything and you’re likely to get a hundred answers. An end to poverty, an end to racism, an end to terrorism, free college, an end to liberals, an end to conservatives, an end to climate change, a balanced budget, and on and on. Most responses would be likely be well-meaning, pie-in-the-sky fantasies with little forethought as nearly all of us are inclined to do now and again. Including me. I know it’s hard to believe that the Artful Dilettante himself engages in such flights of fancy, with outcomes devoid...

    One word, my friends: RINOgeddon. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that Christie earns 21% support when Republican voters are asked whom they would vote for if the party’s primary in their state were held today. Florida Senator Marco Rubio runs a close second with 18% of the GOP vote, followed by former Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 16% and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul with 15% of the vote. Congressman Paul Ryan, the unsuccessful Republican vice presidential candidate in 2012, picks up 13% of the Republican vote, with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker dead last at six percent (6%)....

    'Are you a Mitt Romney guy or a Rick Perry guy?' By: Marin Cogan September 26, 2011 11:29 PM EDT Fewer lawmakers are endorsing a presidential candidate this year, but that hasn’t stanched the whisper primary on Capitol Hill: “Are you a Rick Perry guy or a Mitt Romney guy?” On the House floor, in the cloakrooms and in private conversations, House Republicans are just as gossipy about the presidential contest as any dedicated primary voter, and how lawmakers are choosing sides tells the larger story of the party’s philosophical divide. “I gravitate more toward folks who support Mitt, and...

    Why do so many Republicans pound the table and shout, "I'd rather vote for a Democrat than the 'insufficiently conservative' John McCain!"? Are these the same Republicans who cheerfully voted for then-Gov. George W. Bush in 2000? Ronald Reagan, in 1980, campaigned to shut down the Department of Education. Bush, however, promised to be "the education president" — and then delivered by expanding the federal government's role in education with No Child Left Behind. Bush promised a prescription-benefits bill for seniors — and then delivered the largest expansion of Medicare since the program began. Bush promised — and delivered —...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) — Senator John McCain has won the Republican party's caucuses in Louisiana while longshot candidate Ron Paul took second place, the state party said Wednesday, citing preliminary results. Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, a leading candidate for the Republican nomination, came in third, Louisiana Republican party Chairman Roger Villere said in a statement. "I offer my congratulations Senator John McCain on his success in the Louisiana caucuses," Villere said in a statement. "Senator McCain is an American hero and this is further evidence that he enjoys strong support in Louisiana and throughout the South," he said. Villere did...

    Patrick Ruffini is polling Fred Thompson supporters, asking who we’ll support if Fred drops out. It’s an awful prospect. Each of the other four is deeply flawed (although none quite so badly as Ron Paul). Blogger William Sjostrom recently took me to task for having a “take my ball and go home approach”: I am tired of the approach that says some candidates just upset me and so I would rather stay home and be virtuous than face up to real choices. Fair enough. Mason Colley quipped that “Victory brings obliviousness; defeat, attentiveness.” The GOP is broken. Badly. As I’ve...

    Republicans Mitt Romney may be in terrific shape. Or he might be on the verge of collapsing. His strategy hinges on breakout showings in Iowa and New Hampshire, and either state could go either way for the former Massachusetts governor. In Iowa, he trails Mike Huckabee, but Huckabee’s surge in the state may have peaked, and Romney is within striking distance. Now, he’s shredding Huckabee on the stump, over the air, and in the mail. Because Huckabee is now expected to win Iowa, Romney may be in position to declare victory with a strong second place showing – and he...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A software developer running for governor and the U.S. Senate felt so strongly that voters should have "None of the Above" as a choice that he made it his middle name. The State Election Commission voted 5-0 to nix the middle name from the ballot. Now, David "None of the Above" Gatchell is challenging the commission in court to get the words on the Nov. 7 ballot. "I feel so strongly about this and I knew that it should be my name," he said. "That's who I am." Gatchell, 58, ran as an independent in the 2002...

    Fighting the good fight ONE HAS TO ADMIRE the sheer gumption and staying power of Wayne Parker, the candidate for Congress in the 11th District who is 99.9 percent sure not to be on the ballot and whom most folks probably wouldn't vote for anyway. His fight is the people's fight, whether they know it or not. Parker, who is from Carroll County, is the treasurer of the state Libertarian Party. He's been beating his head out for months collecting signatures and fighting court battles against stacked odds (stacked by Georgia's two traditional major parties) trying to give voters a...
