  • Final primary spending numbers are in; see who's more embarrassed than Lindsey Graham

    Bizpac Review ^ | July 30, 2016 | Scott Morefield
    The most "inefficient" candidate? Why, Lindsey Graham, of course. I know, I know. Did ANYONE vote for Lindsey Graham? Well, 5,623 souls to be exact, or enough to fill up a Columbia 1-AA football stadium. Since Graham paid a total of $5,700,248 for all those votes, or $1,013.74 per vote, he wins the prize for electoral waste. . . In fairness to Graham and others who exited the race early, generally those who invested a ton of money in the early primaries only to fail and drop out were by far the least efficient candidates. For example, Jeb Bush spent...

    COLORADO SPRINGS (CNN) —The powerful political network helmed by Charles and David Koch is ruling out running advertisements intended to hurt Hillary Clinton, another sign of their insistence on avoiding the presidential race. The Koch network has previously said they will not back Republican candidate Donald Trump, but on Saturday officials told reporters that they would not run negative Clinton spots, a position taken by some Republican groups that are uneasy with the controversial GOP standard-bearer. The group is laser-focused on maintaining and expanding the Senate majority -- in the midst of a $42 million television advertising campaign focused on...

    PITTSBURGH, Pa., July 30 - Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton toured the U.S. Rust Belt on Saturday, promising to reject bad international trade deals during a factory visit and securing the endorsement of investor Mark Cuban at a Pittsburgh rally. The Dallas Mavericks owner, who said as recently as last month that there was a "good chance" he would vote for Donald Trump, instead criticized the Republican nominee's leadership in front of an energetic crowd. "Leadership is not yelling and screaming and intimidating," Cuban said. You know what we call a person like that in Pittsburgh? A jagoff!" Cuban added,...

    Billionaire industrialist and conservative benefactor Charles Koch’s expansive political network will not help Donald Trump win the presidency. That’s the message from one of the Koch network’s chief lieutenants as hundreds of the nation’s most powerful Republican donors gathered for a weekend retreat on Saturday. With Election Day just three months away, Koch lamented the state of the 2016 contest during a welcome reception inside a luxury hotel at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. “We don’t really, in some cases, don’t really have good options,” Koch said of the “current political situation.” …

    The Wisconsin Elections Commission is predicting voter turnout of just 16 percent for the partisan primary election on Aug. 9, equating roughly to 710,000 voters. Kenosha County Clerk Mary T. Schuch-Krebs said the lack of high-profile or competitive races is to blame. “I just don’t think there’s enough on the ballot that will draw people out,” said Schuch-Krebs, who estimates 15 to 20 percent turnout in Kenosha County. “And it’s summer; people are busy doing things with their families. People think of elections in the fall.” Many of the candidates running for local office are unopposed. The highest-profile local race...

    There have long been reports that the ongoing delays with the commissioning of the Admiral Gorshkov frigate have to do with defects in its air defense systems. These were thought to be primarily related to problems with integration of the Poliment Redut air defense missile system. The Poliment system was designed to be Russia’s answer to AEGIS, with four phased array antennas that are able to track 16 targets at the same time. The Redut system consists of four or eight vertical launch systems that launch three types of missiles. The 9M100 is the short-range missile, with a range of...

And he told Good Morning Britain hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid that the US leader has issues with attitude. He said: "[Barack] has this attitude like 'I'm the president, I've made it, I'm the star here'. I do understand that but I'm just expressing my opinion and how I feel."

    Democrats have been using their convention speeches this week to make Hillary Clinton look like a can-do politician. On Tuesday, Bill Clinton flatly declared, “She’s a natural leader, she’s a good organizer, and she’s the best darn change-maker I ever met in my entire life.” We heard speech after speech about how Hillary cares about the children, about her innovative ability to solve problems. But there is a reason the speeches lack specific examples. Hillary wasn’t much of a change-maker in the U.S. Senate. Sure, being president is different from being a senator, but both jobs require making deals. Both...

    Anthony Weiner has sworn he would come back into politics if Donald Trump Jr ever ran for New York mayor - a pledge met with an acerbic tweet on Trump Jr's part. The former congressman is currently in Philadelphia for the Democratic National Convention. He flew there hours after calling the elder Trump a 'xenophobic, narcissistic, racist anti-Semite' on Stephen Colbert's Late Show. Weiner ended his political career after losing his seat at the US House Of Representative and the 2013 New York mayoral election to two sexting scandals.

The owner of the four-decade-old, 24-hour greasy spoon, Del Rio Diner in Gravesend, said his place is closing down because he can’t afford to pay cooks $15 an hour, along with rising rents and expensive Health Department inspection fees. …

When Ailes was first sued by Gretchen Carlson, the Post avoided any mention of it. But once the Murdochs made up their minds to give Ailes the gate, all bets were off. Ailes must be wondering what the last 20 years were all about. Isn’t this a little bit over the top coming from your own company?
