  • Trump team alleges delegate stealing plot in Tennessee

    Donald Trump's operation in Tennessee says the Republican Party is trying to "steal" the state's primary election after Trump won it. On Super Tuesday, March 1, Trump won Tennessee, with 38.9 percent of voters to the 24.7 percent for Sen. Ted Cruz. The results won Trump 33 delegates. Cruz received 16 delegates. But Trump's team argues that the Tennessee Republican Party is interfering with the selection process of the delegates, the Tennessean reports. "They're picking anti-Trump people," Darren Morris, Trump's Tennessee state director said.

    Just a day after his state rendered its judgment in the Republican primary -- handing over all of its 99 GOP delegates to Donald Trump -- Florida Gov. Rick Scott urged his fellow Republicans to “coalesce” behind the New York businessman. Scott, 63, called on Republicans to "come together" in a Facebook post today. "With his victories yesterday, I believe it is now time for Republicans to accept and respect the will of the voters and coalesce behind Donald Trump," he wrote. The Florida governor said voters spoke clearly in last night's contest. "This has been a hard fought primary,...

    OK guys.  Tonight can be the election.  Here is how I see it. Lib-Tards - This has been over since they started.  This morally bankrupt, corrupt political-hack party had this election rigged for Cankles since Bernie drooled on his first campaign speech last April.  The fact that Debbie Blabber-Mouth Schultz (head of the DNC) has threatened every super-delegate with death (or worse for democrats, work) if they did not support her lying, despicable, criminal friend Shrillary has meant that Cankles has secured the nomination even if she never utters another lie, panders to another minority or dons another hideous pants-suit at a podium.

This reporter asked the final question of the evening, namely, “What’s wrong with McConnell and Boehner…our readers and commenters on our conservative threads are furious with the Republicans…we gave them victories in 2010 and 2014 and nothing has changed...Boehner won’t stand up to Obama.” That’s when the West Palm Beach resident said it was time for a change in Washington. Foley suggested that John Thune, a newer, younger face, would move the party forward. “Boehner is...

    Donald Trump did not amass a majority of delegates on Super Tuesday. But he could soon. If the people in the rest of the nation vote as the Super Tuesday results suggest they would, Mr. Trump would easily amass a majority of delegates and avoid the contested convention that his opponents hope to force and win. He could even do so without wins in Ohio and Florida, the two largest winner-take-all states, where he faces opponents in their home states. Mr. Trump would amass so many delegates because the rules become more biased toward candidates who win, allowing him the...

    But Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) appears to be ready to drop a bombshell! With no explaination, Rubio abruptly cancelled rallies in Louisiana and Kentucky. Now, political insiders are speculating that Rubio is ready to get out of this race and perhaps throw his support behind fellow Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). As a major Kentucky newspaper noted, the Rubio campaign isn’t giving details on why a rally was cancelled: One day after winning only one of 11 GOP Super Tuesday primaries, Marco Rubio has canceled planned appearances in Kentucky and Louisiana. Tyler Glick, a spokesman for Anne Northrup, Rubio’s campaign chairwoman...

    BATON ROUGE - After a poor showing in the Super Tuesday primaries, Marco Rubio quietly canceled his plans for a Baton Rouge event scheduled for Friday. Individuals who signed up for tickets to see Rubio received an email Wednesday that the event was canceled. "In order to use Marco's time as efficiently as possible before Saturday's contests, Marco will not be making a stop in Louisiana Friday night," the email read. Rubio originally announced he would visit the capital city on Feb. 29. The event was planned for 5:45 p.m. at North Boulevard Town Square. The Rubio campaign's Eventbrite page...

    At a far lower decibel range than most of Super Tuesday's primary battles, a former New Orleans congressman made an announcement few would find surprising. Joseph Cao is running for the U.S. Senate. Cao's official entrance into the race dovetails neatly with the sentiments of a private holiday email he sent to family and friends in December. "Sen. (David) Vitter will not be running for re-election, so this is a great opportunity to have a Vietnamese-American/Asian-American voice in the U.S. Senate," Cao wrote.

The singer — who is a huge animal lover — slammed the Republican presidential front-runner in an Instagram post, which has garnered more than 200,000 likes. She posted one photo of the business mogul, 69, posing with a female hunter. In a second graphic pic, the unidentified woman is holding up a dead mountain lion. "Yes.

    Just as GOP front-runner Donald Trump continued to shore up delegates, winning several Super Tuesday states, some top Republican strategists and donors began to line up behind a new effort to halt the Trump campaign's momentum. Jeb Bush's former communications director, Tim Miller, announced Tuesday that he would be joining the Our Principles PAC, an anti-Trump effort. Miller will focus on opposition research that will go to expanding the PAC's advertising campaigns - including research targeting endorsers and surrogates like Chris Christie.

    Donald Trump’s seven Super Tuesday wins helped pad his substantial delegate lead – but not enough to dispirit his top rivals, who still see a path to toppling the Republican front-runner and taking the fight to the convention if necessary. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, at the very least, seem determined to compete for every vote through the March 15 contests, which could make for the most consequential night of the GOP campaign. That’s when the home states of Rubio and Ohio Gov. John Kasich vote. And both states award every delegate on the table to...

He wasn’t full of the normal bombast, there were a few jabs, but sounding presidential which sort of will help some of his detractors see him in a different light perhaps, and focusing most of his on Hillary Clinton.” It was a smart move, indeed.

    n. Ted Cruz is right: He is the most successful Republican this year not named Donald Trump. After Super Tuesday, he has won four GOP contests, including the primary in his delegate-rich home state, Texas. Marco Rubio has won just one contest, the Minnesota caucus, and John Kasich has won bupkis. The Republican nomination race has been a three-man fight for at least two weeks now, since Jeb Bush threw in the towel, and in his Texas-Oklahoma victory speech, Cruz asked his remaining non-Trump rivals — meaning Rubio, mostly — to "prayerfully consider" leaving him to fight Trump mano a...

    Hillary Clinton set out 10 months ago to inspire and energize the Democratic Party, hoping to bring together the rising American electorate of black, brown, young and female voters into a durable presidential coalition. But buried beneath Mrs. Clinton’s wide-ranging and commanding victories on Tuesday night were troubling signs of a party that has not yet rallied to her call. Democratic turnout has fallen drastically since 2008, the last time the party had a contested primary, with roughly three million fewer Democrats voting in the 15 states that held caucuses or primaries through Tuesday, according to unofficial election results tallied...

    In a super-blue state like Massachusetts, Super Tuesday was the Election Day that mattered. The outcome in November is a foregone conclusion: The Democratic presidential nominee will win the state by a landslide. So Tuesday's primary election was the only chance Bay State voters had to cast a ballot that might have an impact. I cast mine for Bernie Sanders. As a free-market, strong-defense, Reaganite conservative, I have voted Republican much more often than not. But heading into Super Tuesday, every indication was that Massachusetts Republicans, like GOP primary voters in most other states, were poised to give Donald Trump...

He increased his lead over Marco Rubio in states won, votes won, and delegates won--and unless Rubio can win in Florida in two weeks (or John Kasich can win in Ohio), Cruz may soon be battling Donald Trump one-on-one (more or less) for the Republican nomination. But how can Cruz beat Trump? The number-one thing that needs to be undone from the...

    Super Tuesday was defined by change. The Democrats have had enough change. Solid majorities in key states said that they did not want a more liberal candidate than Obama. The one major exception was Vermont which went for Bernie Sanders. Sanders also won Oklahoma where around a third backed a turn even further left than Obama. But beyond them, there was no great appetite for outsiders.

    Top Republicans — including governors who convened an emergency conference call on Monday on which Trump was Topic A — expect the real estate mogul to carry as many as 10 states on Tuesday night, an outcome that would deal a body blow to Sen.

With strong support from low-income white voters, especially those...

    But Trump’s relative weakness doesn’t mean he’s vulnerable. While Trump isn’t as strong as previous front-runners, his coalition has a similar shape. Take Virginia, a varied state where Trump won with 34.7 percent of the vote. The Washington D.C. suburbs aside, Trump won every region of the state, from exurban Northern Virginia and the central region of the state, to the vote-rich, eastern Tidewater and the Richmond metropolitan area. More important than that, however, is the ideological and socio-economic shape of his coalition. Trump won “very conservative” and “somewhat conservative” voters in Virginia, and placed second with self-described Republican moderates....
