  • Iowa Rep. Steve King defeated in GOP primary

    State Sen. Randy Feenstra defeated incumbent Rep. Steve King in Tuesday's Republican primary for Iowa's 4th congressional district, according to the Cook Political Report. Why it matters: King's history of racist remarks has made him one of the most controversial politicians in the country and a pariah within the Republican Party. House Republican leadership stripped the nine-term congressman of his committee assignments in 2019 after he questioned in an interview with the New York Times how the terms "white nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization" became offensive. The big picture: The Republican establishment coalesced around Feenstra beginning in January, when the...

    President Donald Trump said he is moving the Republican National Convention from Charlotte, hours after N.C. Gov. Roy Cooper said he couldn’t guarantee that the August event would be at full capacity due to the coronavirus. In a tweet Tuesday night, Trump said: “Had long planned to have the Republican National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, a place I love. Now, @NC_Governor Roy Cooper and his representatives refuse to guarantee that we can have use of the Spectrum Arena - Spend millions of dollars, have everybody arrive, and then tell them they will not be able to gain entry. “Governor...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Wednesday slammed President Donald Trump's insistence that the Republican National Convention occur as planned despite the pandemic, and suggested neither party had any business holding its massive quadrennial gathering given the risks to public health. "I don't think there's anyone who would say at this point that tens of thousands of people should come together for a political convention, no matter how great an ego trip it is for somebody,” Pelosi, D-Calif., said during a news conference with other Democratic House leaders. Her comments came just days after Trump threatened to move the Republican convention...

    A postal carrier in Pendleton County is accused of committing attempted election fraud by taking requests for Democratic absentee ballots and re-marking them as requests for Republican ballots. Mail carrier Thomas Cooper, 47, of Dry Fork was charged with “attempt to defraud the residents of West Virginia of a fair election.” The charge was filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia. The investigator was Bennie Cogar of the West Virginia Attorney General’s Office and on behalf of the West Virginia Secretary of State’s Office. Cogar swore an affidavit, which was included with the filing....

  • Republican senators request meetings of State Department personnel in Burisma investigation

    Washington Examiner ^ | 4/30/20 | Kerry Picket
    Two Republican senators sent a request Thursday to the State Department asking to meet with key State Department employees for an investigation into Burisma Holdings, the Ukrainian energy firm that once employed Hunter Biden on its board. The letter from Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, and Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Finance Committee, shows they want to seek interviews and documents specific to the dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin. Shokin, who was dismissed in March 2016 after about a year in office by then-President Petro Poroshenko, claims he was ousted...

  • Republicans agree: 61% back Trump’s Easter back-to-work goal

    Washington Examiner ^ | 3/27/20 | Paul Bedard
    Legacy media may be shutting down coverage of President Trump’s daily virus task force press conferences, but his message about getting the nation back on its feet by Easter is getting through anyway. The latest Rasmussen Reports survey found that 61% of Republicans share Trump’s confidence that some parts of the country not widely impacted by the coronavirus can begin rolling back precautions by Easter. As with virtually everything coming out of Washington and the White House, though, there is a huge partisan split. Democrats, who don’t agree with much of anything Trump does, also don’t have confidence in Trump’s...

    There's blood in the water on Capitol Hill and Democrats are bathing in it. North Carolina Senator Richard Burr is hitting back against a story in NPR that detailed how he sold $1.6 million in stocks after receiving a private briefing about how bad the virus was going to get and then writing an op-ed reassuring his constituents that the government was prepared for the pandemic. NPR also said he addressed a group of private donors to brief them on the virus, being considerably more pessimistic than he was in his op-ed. Four other GOP senators -- Georgia's Kelly Loeffler,...

    RALEIGH, N.C. — A man who gave a fiery speech for gun rights two years ago in Greensboro won his party's primary in North Carolina's lieutenant governor's race Tuesday night. Mark Robinson, who was seeking his first elected office, topped eight other candidates, likely winning the primary without a runoff and shocking pundits. He spent less than other candidates – one a state senator who put half a million dollars into his own campaign – and he didn't have the statewide platform or political experience of others. He beat state Superintendent of Public Instruction Mark Johnson. He bested former Congresswoman...

    Ivanka Trump has officially become a registered Republican for the first time after years of voting Democrat and supporting liberal causes. 'I am a proud Trump Republican,' Ivanka declared in a New York Times interview on Monday, revealing that she had registered red so she can vote for her father Donald Trump in the New York state primary next month. Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, both senior White House advisers, were registered Democrats for years, known to donate to liberal candidates and causes. She's been seen as a more moderate member of Team Trump, having been outspoken about her...

    WILMINGTON - The two Republican candidates squaring off in the primary race for District 20 are at odds over one of the candidate’s YouTube videos, which portrayed his female employees wrestling in a small tub of grits, apparently to secure a promotion. **SNIP** Prior to their removal, several videos - narrated by LaNasa - appeared to show two of LaNasa’s female employees, one clothed and one wearing a bikini bathing suit, wrestling in a tub of grits. The incident apparently occurred at the Hardwire Tattoo location on North Front Street in downtown Wilmington. The video was dated August 2012. The...

    Like most of his Orthodox friends, Richard Goldberg was raised a Democrat. But by 2000, Goldberg had affixed a Republican congressional campaign bumper sticker to the maroon Lincoln Town Car he drove to his Orthodox Jewish high school in Chicago. Spurred by concerns about President Bill Clinton’s Israeli-Arab peace process, disgust with the Monica Lewinsky scandal and a desire to emulate his older brother, Goldberg had decided to become a Republican. Though he was not yet old enough to vote, Goldberg knew he was unusual. He remembers walking into Chicago’s largest Judaica store, Rosenblum’s, to see stacks of yarmulkes adorned...
