    In Last Tuesday’s win over Chris McDaniel, Senator Thad Cochran engaged in all manner of political chicanery and racial subterfuge. In a scheme concocted Haley Barbour, the Cochran campaign accused Chris McDaniel and the Tea Party of plotting to disenfranchise African-Americans. When asked to comment about Team Cochran’s unethical and borderline illegal tactics– NH GOP Senate candidate Scott Brown giggled demonically…. “I know you’re not gonna like it, but…I don’t really care about what happened in Mississippi.

    Scott Brown: Warren should take DNA test to prove Native American heritage By Al Weaver (@alweaver22) • 6/27/16 2:13 PM Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown said Monday that his successor Sen. Elizabeth Warren should take a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage. Brown, who spoke on a conference call after Warren appeared with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Cincinnati, told reporters that the Massachusetts Democrat could easily clear up the chatter about her heritage by releasing records from Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania, where she taught. "First of all — as we all know,...

    Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., was labeled by Charles Krauthammer on Friday as the pundit’s leading pick to be the running mate of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. The Washington Post, citing unnamed sources, said Corker will be meeting Monday with Trump at Trump Tower in New York City Krauthammer used a hypothetical pot of $100 in casino chips to make his point, putting $25 on Corker, $20 on former Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., $20 on Ohio Gov. John Kasich, $10 on former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, and $5 on Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint. The rest went to “the field,”...

    Scott Adams' Blog Dilbert ^ | Posted May 17th, 2016 | Scott Adams
    As I said, predicting a VP choice is nearly impossible until the last minute because the situation is fluid. A candidate might need some help in a key state, based on current polling. Or the opponent might open up a new line of attack that needs a defense. A lot can change in a few weeks. But as of today, and according to the Master Persuader filter, I put the odds at 90% than Trump picks Brown as his running mate.

    Donald Trump on Wednesday said that he would consider making Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) his running mate. “I respect Ted,” he told host Bill O’Reilly on Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor." "He was a very strong competitor. He really competed hard and tough." “He’s certainly a capable guy,” the presumptive GOP presidential nominee added. "It’s something we can think about.” Trump defeated Cruz in Tuesday’s Indiana GOP presidential primary, making him the presumptive nominee. Cruz suspended his Oval Office bid shortly afterward, saying that his results in the Hoosier State “foreclose” his path to the Republican presidential nomination. Trump on...

    Former Massachusetts Republican Senator Scott Brown told Breitbart News Daily host Stephen K. Bannon today he sees Donald Trump winning the New Hampshire primary with John Kasich coming in second and "Rubio right there in third." Brown previously thought Rubio would finish second. That was before New Jersey Governor Chris Christie banged the Florida Senator up pretty good in Saturday's Republican debate. Brown called Rubio "brilliant," adding that he considered him a good friend, but felt the cage match with Christie really hurt him. Asked about Trump's "ground game," Brown said he was confident the businessman has a good one...

Brown's decision has been closely guarded for days, but it was confirmed by two people familiar with the event, where Brown will appear onstage with the candidate. When reached early Tuesday afternoon, the Trump campaign's spokesperson would not discuss the rally or possible guests. Brown was unavailable for comment.

"The fact is that's in the past," she said on MSNBC when asked about Clinton's past speeches to the banking firm. "They're done, so it doesn't matter whether or not you support that or not," Shaheen said. "[It is] just as Bernie's socialism - he claims - is in the past," she added of Clinton's chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders.

    I’m not exactly sure what the reasoning is, here. It’s not because the race isn’t competitive. It is – or, more accurately, it could be. Jeanne Sheehan is ahead of Scott Brown by 6.5 points in the current RCP average, sure. But she’s also under 50% in the aggregate polling, which is the usual rule of thumb for an incumbent in trouble. This is the sort of situation where throwing some advertisting cash into the mix could really come in handy. Of course, it’s a little late for that now – back in May the Democrats blocked out about $1...

Analysts and recent polls have found Brown closing in on US Senator Jeanne Shaheen, the Democratic incumbent he is vying to unseat, in a race that has become increasingly nasty and expensive. Once largely dismissed by critics as an unlikely second act in a state he moved to only last year, Brown’s Senate bid is increasingly seen as a plausible path back to the US Capitol.

    Sen. Ted Cruz tried to get the Senate to consider a measure Thursday providing that any American who joins the fight with terrorist groups such as the Islamic State would immediately renounce their U.S. citizenship, but a Democratic senator objected, saying more time is necessary to weigh the significant constitutional issues it raises. Ahead of the Senate’s scheduled consideration Thursday afternoon of a proposal to arm and train Syrian rebels, part of President Obama’s strategy to combat the terrorist group, the Texas Republican asked for unanimous consent to pass the Expatriate Terrorist Act he introduced earlier this month. The measure...

    Jim Geragthy, acclaimed author and National Review’s chief campaign analyst, has been grousing about the lack of quality polling in key Senate races this year. His frustration is well-founded. So yesterday must have felt like Christmas in September for Jim and political junkies everywhere, as two pollsters released a deluge of surveys covering the most contested races in the country. In light of the results, I’d expect that national Republicans are kicking off the week with an extra spring in their step, as well. We were leaked an advance copy of last week’s much-anticipated Politico/GWU Battleground poll, which was packed...

    As Republicans contemplate the possible size of their November victory, outlier races may get interesting. Scott Brown, a few weeks ago considered certain to lose, may well win in New Hampshire. Most folks would not have thought that Republican Terri Land had a chance in a blue state like Michigan, but she continues to run close to Peters in the race. Al Franken also cannot pull away in his re-election fight, and all the polls show that race tightening. Surely the trophy in any general election is for one party to knock off a legislative leader of the other party....

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)There are 65 prominent people who might run for president in 2016. The Democratic and Republican fields contrast sharply. Hillary Clinton is the clear front-runner, while there is no front-runner on the Republican side. Twenty-three Democrats have been mentioned as a candidate or are eyeing a bid, according to an analysis by The Hill. The GOP side has 42. Most of the people on this list won’t run, and some have adamantly claimed that they’re not interested. But many politicians have changed their minds on seeking the White House. Before mounting his 2008 bid, then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) said he...

  • Scott Brown on Cochran's Mississippi tactics: "I don't care."

    Caller: "Mr Brown, I'm very interested to get your thoughts on Eric Cantor's defeat. Your reply to Howie Carr's question on what happened in Mississippi. Here is my translation of what you just said: "I am very happy that the corrupt Republican leadership defeated the person who was voted in; who won the Republican votes." Scott Brown blames Cantor's loss on running for Speaker. Then he talks Cochran. Brown:"And we need to unify regardless of who's in charge right now, who's been elected and who's nominated. It's down south. It's a different state. I don't care. I'm focusing on right...

    There’s been an interesting, but largely overlooked development in the New Hampshire GOP Senate primary race this week. One of the candidates, Karen Testerman, has dropped out of the race and tossed her support to former Senator Bob Smith, issuing the following statement. It is time for all of us to put aside pride and focus on our greater GOAL, that of fighting for Family, Faith and Freedom. I will not force our principle-driven primary voters to make a self-defeating choice. After much prayer and consultation, I will step aside to allow Senator Bob Smith to be the ONLY conservative...
  • Will Eric Cantor's Loss be Scott Brown's Gain?

    Scott Brown's campaign manager has fired off a memo "to interested parties" on what Eric Cantor's primary loss in Virginia means for the U.S. Senate race in New Hampshire. Colin Reed says the Cantor upset by a Tea Party surging candidate "contains worrisome lessons for Senator Jeanne Shaheen." Here are Reed's five points, verbatim, from his memo: 1. Supporting President Obama's Immigration Policies Is A Liability There is a crisis building on the southern border right now, with large numbers of young people seeking to enter the country illegally, encouraged by the pro-amnesty policies of President Obama and Senator Shaheen....

    New Hampshire senator Jeanne Shaheen says Boko Haram, the Islamic terrorist group that has kidnapped hundreds of Nigerian girls from their families and forced them to convert to Islam, should not be confused with Islam. The Democrat made the point in a Thursday hearing. One of the hearing's witnesses, State Department official Robert Jackson, prompted Shaheen's comment when he argued that "Boko Haram's philosophy is not an Islamist philosophy." "I agree and I’m glad you made that point," said Shaheen. "Clearly, we need to make sure Islam is not confused with some of these horrible terrorist acts that have been...
