  • John Kasich Meeting With Supporters In New Hampshire As 2020 Speculation Swirls

    11/13/2018 3:24:18 PM PST · by detective · 100 replies
    Ohio Republican Gov. John Kasich on Wednesday and Thursday will meet with supporters and attend several events in New Hampshire. Kasich’s appearances in New Hampshire, which is second only to Iowa in order of presidential primary contests, is likely to feed speculation that the governor is preparing to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020. Kasich has three speaking events listed on his schedule for Thursday and will also “spend time Wednesday and Thursday meeting with old and new supporters,” Kasich’s team said in a press release.
  • Trump boasts he went '5 for 5' in Tuesday's elections

    President Trump on Wednesday boasted that all five candidates he endorsed in this week's elections won their races, even as contests in Ohio and Kansas were too close to call. The president declared victory in a brief tweet: "5 for 5!" Trump sent the message from his New Jersey golf club, where he is spending the week on vacation. Troy Balderson, a Trump-backed Republican running for a vacant House seat in Ohio, held a narrow lead over his upstart Democratic challenger after Tuesday night's voting. The same goes for Republican Kris Kobach, who was less than 200 votes ahead of...

    If Democratic Socialists are "the future" of the Democratic party, they had better get used to losing – a lot. Every single candidate endorsed by celebrity Democratic Socialist politician Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was beaten by establishment Democrats in yesterday's primaries.  And not just beaten – they were, in most cases, slaughtered. The blood on the floor in Democratic precincts across the Midwest is Democratic Socialist blood.  American Mirror: Cortez held a whirl-wind tour of the U.S., stumping for Abdul El-Sayed for governor of Michigan, Fayrouz Saad in Michigan's 11th Congressional District, Cori Bush in Missouri's 1st District, and is backing Congressional candidate...

    Too bad, so sad, NOT! Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s record on Tuesday night for her chosen primary candidates was as bare as a Venezuelan supermarket shelf. The socialist pulled off a stunning victory last month in New York, and is now attempting to parlay that win into helping other leftists win Democratic primaries.

    Full title...................... Hillary vs. Alexandria! Clinton FINALLY campaigns in Michigan to help a Democratic House candidate as socialist star Ocasio-Cortez endorses a different contender.................Hillary Clinton is giving her nod of approval to a Democratic candidate in a key House race one day before voters go to the polls to pick their party's nominee as socialist star Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez endorsed an alternative contender. Clinton recorded a robocall for Democrat Haley Stevens, encouraging voters to pick President Barack Obama's chief of staff on his Auto Task Force in Tuesday's primary. And Ocasio-Cortez, a self-proclaimed socialist who had a shocking win against incumbent...

  • Heng Gets Facebook Blocked (California R candidate)

    08/05/2018 5:16:54 PM PDT · by RightGeek · 20 replies
    Elizabeth Heng nearly beat incumbent Democratic congressman Jim Costa in California’s open primaries in early June. The 53–47 outcome would have made her the darling of the national political media, had she been a Democrat. She will face Costa again in the general election in November. My colleague Alexandra DeSanctis wrote an excellent piece last month profiling the young, smart, 33-year-old Republican contender. So this happened yesterday. Heng’s campaign had tried to place this video as an ad on Facebook. It begins with her family’s roots — amidst the horror of Cambodian genocide. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUJXqJ4f_to And Facebook responded with a...

    Donna Brazile says in her new book the Democratic National Committee (DNC) went against professional advice and sat idly for a month while Russians stole data because primaries were still underway in a number of states. In May, when CrowdStrike recommended that we take down our system and rebuild it, the DNC told them to wait a month, because the state primaries for the presidential election were still underway, and the party and the staff needed to be at their computers to manage these efforts,” Brazile wrote in her new book, “Hacks.” “For a whole month, CrowdStrike watched Cozy Bear...

    The Democratic Party is in an ongoing crisis, but most of the national media aren’t interested. They’d rather talk about the new “rock star,” Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Coretz, and ignore that the party is up in flames.
  • Vanity - POTUS, Trump hits Campaign Trial heavy this week.

    Lots of primary voting action coming up this week and lots of POTUS, Trump campaigning across the country. The POTUS is on his game, taking the issues to the people that really count, the average John & Jane America, rank & file American voters, White, African-American, Hispanic, etc., across the board. The Trump rallies and events will be overflowing with tens of thousands of POTUS, Trump supporters and I believe we will once again witness a strong, positive showing for Trump Republicans across the voting activity with high interest and heavy turn out of Trump supporters. Not so good for...

    Tuesday brought another set of primaries across the country — in Maine, South Carolina, Nevada, North Dakota and Virginia — and another set of surprises. Here are the night's winners and losers. Winners President Trump: It's overly simplistic to say that South Carolina GOP congressman Mark Sanford lost his primary Tuesday because of Trump. But Trump was definitely a factor in making Sanford the second House Republican in 2018 to lose a primary. The president sent off this remarkably caustic tweet on Tuesday afternoon, as voters in South Carolina were getting off work and going to vote.

    Donald Trump erased all doubts about who owns the Republican Party on Tuesday night as several Trump-backed candidates swept to victory in GOP primaries. Primaries were held in Maine, South Carolina, Virginia, Nevada, and North Dakota.  Po-Trump candidates win crucial races.  The most notable among Trump's victories occurred in South Carolina, where former governor and current GOP incumbent Congressman Mark Sanford, a bitter critic of the president, went down to defeat. CBS: In the most dramatic result in primaries across five states Tuesday, Sanford was the second incumbent House Republican to lose a primary this year – and the latest victim of...

    The "Obamabot/Clinton" low life, gutter rat, Trump Hater, Robert De Nero speaks for himself and the Democrat party. Nothing further needs to be said. Voters of all political stripes should shun this has been, loser, and cast all their votes today and in the future for "only" Trump backed candidates. All Establishment Democrats & all Establishment Republican RINOs should be promptly defeated. Do it, folks. Go POTUS, Donald J. Trump, Go, MAGA!!!

    The Hill ^ | 06/05/18 | Lisa Hagen
    Hundreds of thousands of voters’ names have been accidentally left off the rosters in Los Angeles County because of a printing error. About 2.3 percent of registered voters in the county — or 118,522 voters — were missing on the lists for Tuesday’s primaries, according to The Los Angeles Times. But those voters are still able to cast provisional ballots, though they won’t be verified right away. This will have an impact in more than a dozen House districts, but will likely have the most dramatic effect on the race to replace retiring GOP Rep. Ed Royce, where Democrats are...

    Voters on Tuesday head to the polls for California's pivotal primary, which could help determine whether Democrats will gain control of the House in the November midterms. The Golden State is home to 10 of the most competitive House races in the nation, virtually all currently held by Republicans. The state is a key to the Democratic Party’s plan to net the 23 seats it needs to flip the House majority in November. But uncertainty abounds thanks to the state's "jungle primary" system, where the top two vote-getters advance to the general election regardless of party affiliation. The unusual dynamic...

    Voting precincts have closed in Alabama, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota as eight states hold primaries Tuesday, including in California where the Democratic Party’s plan to regain control of the House of Representatives faces a big test. The Fox News Decision Desk can now project that former pharmaceutical executive Bob Hugin will win Tuesday’s Republican Senate primary in New Jersey. But it is too early to project a winner on the Democratic side, where incumbent Sen. Bob Menendez is battling fellow Democrat Lisa McCormick. Menendez’s corruption and bribery case is expected to play a starring role in...

Of course, California is the number one biggie, but much more is afoot as to how the political winds are blowing, Oncoming "Blue wave or Blue wave trickle". We shall see. The preceding small numbers of primaries have already shown a very low turnout and disappointment of Democrat voters....Republicans seem to be doing OK...but, much needs to be revealed this coming Tuesday as to the real nature and path of the Mid-Term elections. It will...
