  • Ocasio-Cortez backs campaign to primary fellow Democrats

    Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Justice Democrats want her victory over Rep. Joe Crowley to be the beginning of a movement rather than just a one-off upset. Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Saturday threw her weight behind a new national campaign to mount primaries against incumbent Democrats deemed to be ideologically and demographically out of step with their districts. The incoming star congresswoman from New York again put the Democratic establishment on notice that she and activist groups on the left aren’t content with a Democratic-controlled House: They are determined to move the party to the left. "Long story short, I need...

    The socialist insurgency against establishment Democrats in New York emerged triumphant as no less than 6 far left candidates defeated establishment Democrats in races for the state senate. New York Times: Years of anger at a group of Democratic state senators who had collaborated with Republicans boiled over on Thursday, as primary voters ousted nearly all of them in favor of challengers who had called them traitors and sham progressives. The losses were not only a resounding upset for the members of the Independent Democratic Conference, who outspent their challengers several times over, but also a sign that the...

    The double whammy is that Wyoming voting law allows people to register or change their party affiliation at the polling place on voting day and vote in whichever primary they choose. So RINOs are chosen in the Republican primary by Democrat voters pretending for a day to be Republicans. It makes a travesty of the two-party system and cheats Republicans of getting to select their own candidates. Their preferred candidate, Mark Gordon, beat the conservative frontrunner, Foster Friess, by approximately 6-9,000 votes (the official count isn't in yet), well within the margin provided by Democrat voters. Comparing this year's primary...

    ...On the Democratic side, Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum's victory was the most unexpected of the night, as he defeated centrist former Rep. Gwen Graham. His victory represents an upset for the progressive wing of the party in the final stretch of 2018 primaries... ...Gillum hadn't led in a single poll, but was able to harness the progressive energy to beat Graham, a famed political scion in the state whose father had served as governor and senator. Sen. Bernie Sanders campaigned for Gillum and drew more than 1,000 people to a rally in Tampa earlier this month. Gillum campaigned on repealing...

    Dr. Kelli Ward had a campaign appearance in Yuma on Saturday night, the 25th of August, for the Republican primary for the Senate. Yuma was the last stop at the end of a whirlwind bus tour around the state. I was able to attend and ask Dr. Ward a question about gun issues beyond the usual "I support the Second Amendment" boilerplate. I arrived before 6 p.m. I ran into many of the local political activists. It was clear Dr. Ward was getting much more attention than she had in 2016. I had attended a similar rally in 2016,...

    The states of Florida & Arizona hold their primary elections next Tuesday, August 28, 2018. They are just about the end of the "primary election" cycle for this upcoming election in November. Normally, I urge all Republicans, Conservatives, Blue Dog Democrats, Independents, etc. to get their butts in gear, get up off the couch and go out and vote to support, defend and sustain, POTUS, Donald J. Trump, etc. I still urge that action. My family has already voted in Florida, either by absentee ballot or early voting. All twelve have cast their primary votes for Rick Scott (Senator), Ron...

    Election day for the mid-term primary is a week away. There are four contested state-wide offices: US Senate, Governor, Attorney General, and Commissioner of Agriculture. There is a lot of negative advertising out there and while some of the players are well known, others are not. So this is my attempt at bringing together any discussion on choosing the candidates to go up against their RAT opponents in the November General Election.

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “All In,” Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) stated that, despite winning the Democratic primary, he will run for re-election in 2018 as an Independent. Sanders said, “I have always run as an Independent, and that’s what I will do. And I think people in Vermont understand that. We have a very good relationship with the Democratic Party. I suspect that this coming campaign we’ll be putting more money — our campaign will be putting more money into the Vermont Democratic Party than anybody else and supporting a whole lot of good Democratic candidates.” Host Ali Velshi...

    iPatriot ^ | 6/28/2018 | Mitchell Gunter
    Republican voters in South Carolina’s fourth congressional district will go to the polls in mere hours to pick between two conservative stalwarts in the GOP primary, but only one choice will effectively go on to represent South Carolina conservatives in Washington. Both former state Sen. Lee Bright and current state Sen. William Timmons are sound defenders of liberty. Without question, either leader would be better than ninety percent of the sitting Members of Congress. Each candidate supports President Trump, champions lower taxes and reduced federal spending, and publicly defends the Second Amendment. However, in terms of style, the candidates are...
  • McSally takes hard line on immigration in Arizona primary

    The Hill ^ | 06/21/18 | Lisa Hagen
    Arizona’s Senate GOP primary is pushing Rep. Martha McSally (R) to the right on immigration as she juggles the hot-button issue with the pressure of battling hard-right primary opponents. McSally, who has represented a Tucson-area swing seat since 2015, has cast herself as an immigration hawk, most notably by removing her co-sponsorship of a more moderate immigration bill last month. “It presents an opportunity for her to solidify her position on immigration with primary voters,” a Republican political consultant in Arizona told The Hill. “If she handles it well, it’s a very good opportunity. If she doesn’t, it could be...

    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.
