    AP via KKCO-TV ^ | Updated: Wed 9:49 PM, Mar 02, 2016
    Colorado Democrats and Republicans have tentatively agreed to push for changing the state's system of choosing presidential candidates to a primary election, instead of a caucus. The agreement comes after a raucous caucus night Tuesday in which party faithful in both camps complained about the current system of thousands of precinct meetings to start choosing presidential candidates.

    I live here in Central Michigan. Dave Camp MI-R, Chairman of the Ways and Means Committee is retiring. We have a primary race between Paul Mitchell, John Molenaar and Pete Konechty.Konechty filed to run against Camp before he dropped out, seems to be the true Tea Party candidate. Molenaar is a State Senator and Paul Mitchell, businessman/GOP finance chair, both filed after Camp dropped out. I'm going by memory on this.Paul Mitchell has swamped the district with tv, radio, internet, mail and robocalls. Molenaar has followed with radio ads and mailers. I haven't heard from Konechty, who I believe has...

  • [Texas Moderate] Lt. Gov. Dewhurst Fights for Survival in GOP Race

    Fort Worth Star-Telegram ^ | March 5, 2014 | Chris Tomlinson
    Dewhurst is fighting for his political legacy after presiding over the Texas Senate for 11 years. In that role, he has chosen committee leaders, controlled the legislative agenda and maintained the Texas Senate's clubby atmosphere that keeps the wheels of government turning. But after his loss to Ted Cruz in the 2012 GOP primary race for the U.S. Senate, Dewhurst has tacked hard to the right. He has talked more about banning almost all abortions and even appointed Patrick to chair one of the Senate's most power committees, public education. Patrick, meanwhile, focused on passing abortion restrictions and expanding the...

    Breibart News Network ^ | March 6, 2014 | Michael Quinn Sullivan
    While the three tea party incumbents who were being challenged by establishment politicians won big, liberal-leaning Republicans closest to House Speaker Joe Straus lost in race after race this week. Defeated Straus incumbents include State Rep. Lance Gooden in House District 4, Diane Patrick in HD94, Linda Harper-Brown in HD105, Bennett Ratliff in HD115, and Ralph Sheffield in HD55. The key defensive races in the Texas House were those of State Reps. Charles Perry of Lubbock, Jonathan Stickland of Bedford and Matt Schaefer of Tyler. All three were heavily challenged by big-monied, Austin-based lobby interests. Their win-margins ranged from Perry’s...

    Just a couple of question about what FReepers think would happen if McConnell, Graham or any of a bunch of the other GOPe politicians would do in the remainder of their terms if they were to lose their Primary Elections, especially if the lost to a TEA Party endorsed opponent. a.) They would be ticked off and do what they could to take revenge on the people who 'threw them out'. b.) They would start looking for a 'lobbyist' position so they could stay in D.C. c.) They would do nothing for the rest of their term and just vote...

    The Washington Post ^ | March 14, 2012 | Aaron Blake
    Despite his losses in the Alabama and Mississippi primaries, Mitt Romney appears to have expanded his delegate lead on Tuesday. The most recent projections from AP show Rick Santorum took 31 delegates from Alabama and Mississippi, while Newt Gingrich took 24 delegates and Romney got 23 But this morning, Romney was projected to win all nine delegates from American Samoa’s caucuses, and he also won the Hawaii caucuses by a large margin. AP projections show Romney beat Santorum 18 delegates to four in those jurisdictions. So, as of this morning, Romney has won 41 delegates from Tuesday’s contests, compared to...

    Surging Santorum once again shocked the poltical world by winning both the Alabama and Mississipipi GOP Primaries on a shoestring budget. Mitt "Scorched Earth" Romney finished in 3rd place even after outspending Santorum by about 10 to one in a highly negative ad campaign. The following is some analysis from political, cultural, religious and economic analyst Steve Johnston who holds a Juris Doctorate from Western State University of Law and a Theological degree from Calvary Chapel School of Ministry. Steve is also the author of The Tea Party Culture War. He offers the following talking points on the Santorum GOP...

    I went to Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, Monday to find out. Out of 1,189,530 votes cast the next day in bellwether Ohio, Mr. Santorum lost to Mitt Romney by only 10,288, at last count. He's doing something right, and what one learned in Cuyahoga Falls, an Akron suburb, is that it doesn't have much to do with the famous Santorum controversies over social issues. It's about ObamaCare. And it's about the idea of freedom. ....Rick Santorum should stay in the race, repeating from now till summer the perverse link between the ObamaCare mandate and the American idea of freedom. It looks...

    Interviews with New Hampshire voters on Tuesday gave a glimpse into the issues that drew these newcomers to a campaign that has been trying to gain mainstream support for its message since Paul first ran for president in 1988. Most said they were initially drawn to one element of Paul's platform, but came to support the rest of it later. 'Painfully, Very Slowly' One voter, James Kelley, said he supported Paul at first because he seemed like the only candidate who was serious about cutting taxes and spending. But as he researched Paul's platform, he found himself reconsidering his hawkish...

    CNS ^ | October 9, 2011 | Staff
    Initial results from France's Socialist Party show that Francois Hollande and Martine Aubry led primary voting for next year's presidential elections. The party says on its website that longtime party chief Hollande won 39 percent of the vote and Aubry, author of France's 35-hour workweek law, 30 percent of the vote based on about 977,000 ballots counted. The party estimates that more than 1.5 million voters took part in Sunday's voting. The runoff will be held Oct. 16 between the top two finishers. The winner would be the main challenger to conservative President Nicolas Sarkozy, widely expected to seek re-election....

    I apologize in advance for the Vanity Post. I rarely use 'em - but in this case, I need some Freeper advice. Like all of you, I despise Harry Reid. Next year, I want him gone in the worst possible way. But I was gonna wait and see how Nevada's GOP primary turned out before I wrote a check. In the last three weeks, I've received two fundraising letters from Danny Tarkanian's campaign for US Senate. I've read thru both of 'em. I've visited his website. And you know what? I still don't know much about this race. I don't...

    With Tuesday's record-setting turnout, California Hispanics for the first time performed as well as any other racial group in a statewide election. The outpouring was especially strong on the Democratic side, with Hispanics accounting for 30 percent of Tuesday's presidential primary vote. Hispanic Democrats nearly doubled their percentage from the 2000 and 2004 primaries. And they matched their percentage among California adults, suggesting the state's fast-growing Hispanic population is finally being reflected at the polls. Analysts cited a variety of possible reasons for the uptick in Hispanic voting, from the voter registration drives that developed from the 2006 immigration protests...

    MSNBC/Newsweek ^ | 6/28/07 | Sam Stein - Staff Reporter
    For the past few months, Sen. Chuck Hagel, Republican of Nebraska, has flirted with the idea of running for president as an antiwar Republican. Now, however, that platform is threatening Hagel’s standing within his own state and party. In a race that has received scant national attention, Jon Bruning, Nebraska’s 38-year-old Republican attorney general, is challenging Hagel’s bid for re-election to the Senate--by attacking him from the right. Bruning charges that Hagel’s stance on Iraq, as well as his criticism of the president and members of his cabinet (see: Alberto Gonzales), put the incumbent out of touch with the majority...

    That's what Stephen Hayes is reporting in the Weekly Standard and Mike Allen in Politico. Last night I attended an off-the-record American Spectator dinner with Thompson and his wife, Jeri; George Will and Robert Novak were also there. I'm not supposed to say what was said there, but nothing I heard inclined me to think that Hayes and Allen have gotten it wrong. Thompson's exploratory committee will go into action June 4, collecting money and hiring staffers.
