    LA Times ^ | May 21, 2016 | Seema Mehta & Melanie Mason
    After Ted Cruz dropped out of the presidential race, his campaign staffers boxed up their mementos and souvenirs as they prepared to shutter the Houston headquarters, and the Texan announced that he would seek reelection to the U.S. Senate. Yet Cruzs team didn't abandon the race for the White House entirely. It still filed a slate of potential presidential delegates for Californias June 7 primary, and continues to monitor delegate selection in states that already voted in the GOP nominating process. The end result is that Cruz will have more than 550 loyalists attending the Republican National Convention in Cleveland...

He is America come to meet itself in larger-than-life image to rejuvenate it as its pride slips away in third-world conditions and a multi-polar world."

    The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has asked a Ted Cruz super PAC to explain why it gave $500,000 to another super PAC supporting one of his Republican rivals. According to financial disclosures from June, Keep the Promise I - one of four separate committees backing Cruz - gave half a million dollars to CARLY for America, the political action committee supporting Carly Fiorina. Super PACs are legally allowed to give money to other super PACs - they are only prohibited from donating directly to any political campaign. But it's unusual for one of these groups to give money to an...

    Who is a natural-born citizen? Who, in other words, is a citizen at birth, such that that person can be a President someday?   The 14th Amendment defines citizenship this way: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” But even this does not get specific enough. As usual, the Constitution provides the framework for the law, but it is the law that fills in the gaps.   Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in those gaps. Section...

    Ted Cruz has a powerful tool as he tries to close the deal with Iowa voters: He has aired the most effective TV ads in the Republican presidential race, according to independent research by a private company. The ratings come from Ace Metrix, a television analytics company that uses large online panels to rate the effectiveness of TV commercials. The company’s political unit found that Cruz’s campaign produced five of the 11 top-scoring ads among Republican voters this election, including the single most effective ad of the GOP primary so far.The ad is simple: Cruz faces the camera, wearing a...
