    TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - It has been two days since she took center stage, next to the GOP front runner Donald Trump in Tucson. Ever since she showed her support for the billionaire, she has been harassed at her business. Before thousands of eyes were on her Saturday afternoon, Trump spotted not her, but her sign which read "Latinas support D. Trump." While KGUN9 was inside Sammy's Mexican Grill, the phone rang several dozen times, many calling Betty Rivas and her family racists, vulgar names and threatening their business. Betty Rivas and her husband Jorge own the restaurant in Catalina, and...

    Donald Trump crashed the caucus location where conservative talk show host Glenn Beck was speaking on behalf of Ted Cruz. MSNBC was broadcasting a live look at the caucus site, Palo Verde High School in Summerlin, when Trump suddenly showed up and made an impromptu speech of his own. "We are going to have hopefully a historic night," Trump said. "I appreciate everybody being here. I wanted to be here myself and say a few words." The billionaire informed his Twitter followers he would be "at various caucus sites" throughout Nevada Tuesday, but didn't specify where.

Mary Matalin and James Carville were part of the Distinguished Lecture Series hosted by Lamar State College-Orange. They spoke to a crowd of more than 600 at the Lutcher Theater. The two represent different political parties, Matalin is a Republican and Carville is a Democrat. Both have presidential wins under their belts. Matalin with George H.W. Bush and Carville with Bill Clinton. Matalin and Carville have been married for 22 years. Before they took the stage at the Lutcher, they met with 12News. They were both...

    It is no secret that former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush — the very early GOP presidential favorite — has struggled to catch any traction on the road to the White House. Glenn Beck, though, shared Monday a new “really honorable” theory about why Bush might still be in the running. According to Beck’s theory, Bush knows there is no path to the nomination but is convinced that someone has to stop his biggest rival and No. 1 critic, fellow Republican hopeful Donald Trump. “This would make Jeb one of the most honorable men you could ever imagine. He’s going through...

  • Can Marco Rubio Beat Ted Cruz on Immigration?

    11/13/2015 1:42:18 PM PST · by Rockitz · 31 replies ^ | 13 Nov 2015 | Dan Riehl
    In broader terms, Senators Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), both now competing for the Republican presidential nomination, seemed solidly defined on opposite ends of the political battle over immigration. Cruz was seen as the hardliner, Rubio the appeaser tied to the now infamous 2013 Gang of Eight legislation. With the two Senators headed for a one-on-one battle for the nomination in the view of many pundits, Rubio has gone on the attack, attempting to undermine Cruz’s immigration hardliner reputation. Rubio’s team released the video (below and in the Tweet below), claiming it shows Cruz supported the...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/12/2015 | Byron York
    The 2013 Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform bill is the signature achievement of Marco Rubio's four years and ten months in the U.S. Senate. Yet in the first four Republican presidential debates, in which Rubio has played an increasingly prominent role, he has not been asked even once about the specifics of the legislation. Despite that omission, it seems likely that if Rubio continues to rise in the GOP race, someone, somewhere will pay attention to his most important accomplishment. The 1,197-page Gang of Eight bill is so far-reaching, and at the same time so detailed, that it provides...

    Marco Rubio’s staffers seem to understand that this race is likely to boil down to a race between their employer and Ted Cruz, the senator from Texas. As a result, they apparently feel the need to smear their guy’s main rival. They do that by spreading a video in which Ted Cruz appears to support amnesty – at least in some cases and for some people. Here’s a tweet in which a staffer makes the case that Cruz is a new convert to the ‘no amnesty’ point of view: [QUOTED TWEET] And then there's this one: [QUOTED TWEET] Shocking, right?...

    Candidate says he is open to 'very long' path to citizenship for immigrants. Marco Rubio insisted he learned his lesson when he abandoned his controversial immigration bill: Congress could not tackle such an issue in a comprehensive fashion. But on the campaign trail, Rubio says he's open to the most controversial aspect of that plan: a pathway to citizenship for the nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants. Rubio laid out this week a list of criteria illegal immigrants would have to meet to earn citizenship -- mirroring the controversial Gang of Eight bill that he has methodically been distancing himself from...

    It is undeniable among most political observers that Florida Senator Marco Rubio had a strong showing at last night's GOP debate. While his words were his own, he also apparently benefited at least partly, by some help in political make-up of the standing-room-only, Milwaukee Theater. Apparently several hundred pro-Rubio supporters were specifically chosen to attend the debate, a gesture that is alleged to not have been extended to the other candidates. Rumors are circulating of significant influence by the Wisconsin State Republican Party and Scott Walker loyalists who manipulated the ticket selection process to ensure the audience was of a,...

    Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida said Thursday that while some illegal immigrants will have to be deported, it's unrealistic to think it can happen for all of the approximately 11 million in the United States. Mr. Rubio was asked if he would accept or denounce 2016 GOP presidential rival Donald Trump's tough deportation plan, and the Florida senator said both sides have valid points to make. "We are going to have to deport some people - otherwise, if you're not going to enforce your laws, what's the point of having those laws?" Mr. Rubio said on Fox News' "America's Newsroom."...

    John Kasich, polling nationally at about 3 percent for the Republican presidential nomination, made a gamble during the last GOP debate that if he fought to be heard, even out of turn, it might help his chances. The conservative media heard him clearly, but they didn't like the noise. Republican pollster Frank Luntz concluded from one of his focus groups in New Hampshire that Kasich "nosedived every other time he spoke.""John Kasich couldn't help himself — interrupting, interjecting, intruding or worse," Luntz wrote at on Wednesday, a day after the debate.

    Pediatric neurosurgeon and 2016 GOP frontrunner Ben Carson has easily fended off most of the spurious attacks from the establishment press, but growing conservative outrage over the Carson campaign's recent announcement of support "with reservations" for Obama's deeply controversial Trans-Pacific Partnership deal may prove more tricky. Ironically, the Carson camp claimed Carson supported the deal, dubbed "ObamaTrade" by critics, as a "counterbalance to China's influence" just two days after the Obama administration publicly invited the brutal Communist Chinese dictatorship and Russia's Vladimir Putin to join the TPP as well. Among many of Carson's conservative supporters, the pro-TPP position is likely...

    Bottom line: The book is a good read, an unusually detailed front-row seat view to how strained campaigns always are, and a compelling insight into Palin's perspective. Its long-term publishing and political impact are unknown for now, though as Palin moves out of the mainstream media monster publicity machine and into more hospitable, relevant political terrain, the prospects for success on both fronts improve exponentially. But its impact on personal and professional relationships is a sad one indeed and one I hope conservatives don't let it divide us just when we are marching toward a promising midterm, which reflects an...

    Mary Matalin to head publishing imprint NEW YORK - Mary Matalin, the Republican pundit and strategist also known as the wife/sparring partner of Democratic consultant James Carville, will run a new conservative publishing imprint at Simon & Schuster. "It's the absolute nexus of what I love to do," Matalin told The Associated Press on Tuesday. "I think we're on the threshold of a whole new way of looking at politics and policy and there's something vital about getting those ideas down in book form." The imprint, currently unnamed, is expected to release six to 10 books a year, beginning in...

    A senior Bush administration advisor said Friday that John Kerry should apologize to Vice President Cheney and his wife Lynne for outing their daughter as "a lesbian" on national TV. "If he wants to get past [this controversy] as his campaign is saying he wants to, then he should just apologize and let's move on," Mary Matalin told NBC "Today Show" host Katie Couric. "[Kerry] was using Mary [Cheney] as a political football here," Matalin complained. "She's a behind the scenes person. She's not the poster girl for gay issues. She doesn't talk to the press. She's not public. ....

    I posted this late Sunday night and I thought it might get more traffic today. Here is the original post. W 2004!!! With the new "dream team" of Carville and Begala in place, I thought it worthy of posting Carville's utter throwing away of Zell and his blaming Republicans for making Zell turn on his Dem buddies. Key points: Zell Miller was Carville's former employer and Miller officiated Carville and Matalins wedding!!! There is no bottom for Carville and this marks the beginning of the next phase in the battle for the White House. I wonder if Carl Rove forced...

    September 6, 2004 -- WASHINGTON The long knives are out for Democrat John Kerry's campaign manager, Mary Beth Cahill, as infighting rages while his slumping campaign struggles to come back against President Bush. "You'd think they could find a man to throw overboard one of these days," zinged Republican strategist Mary Matalin, a former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney on NBC's "Meet the Press." She said Democrats blamed 1988 loser Michael Dukakis' stumbles on campaign manager Susan Estrich and Al Gore's 2000 fumbles on campaign chief Donna Brazile, and "now they're trying to blame poor Mary Beth Cahill"...

    A month ago, after Vice President Dick Cheney caused a stir when he told Sen. Pat Leahy to "f--- yourself," White House Communications Director Dan Bartlett advised the Cheney team to "just make a joke of it," a senior White House official tells Newsweek. But Cheney did not. Rather, the veep affirmed to Fox News that he had told off Leahy and "felt better afterwards." Mary Matalin, the former White House aide who acts as an informal media and political adviser for the Cheneys tells Newsweek that she doubts Cheney had ever heard the White House official's advice. "I know...

    SARASOTA -- Democratic consultant James Carville was asked Wednesday if he lost any business when he married Republican strategist Mary Matalin."The only thing I lost when I got married was my ability to make decisions," Carville quipped. Carville and Matalin exchanged more light-hearted banter than pointed political opinions in a joint appearance at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. Those expecting a Lincoln-Douglas-style debate got something closer to George Burns and Gracie Allen instead. Matalin maintained at one point that she didn't read the book her husband wrote, nor did she "read his half of the book we wrote together."...

    With Los Angeles private eye Anthony Pellicano beginning his jail sentence on Monday, Hollywood is on pins and needles wondering about the Pellicano tapes, illegal wiretap transcripts discovered on the celebrity gumshoe's computer while he was under investigation for a witness intimidation rap. But those aren't the only recordings that document the work of the man known as the "investigator to the stars." In 1992, when "the Pelican" hired on to do damage control for Bill Clinton's presidential campaign, Mary Matalin, then the political director for President Bush 41's reelection campaign, found herself in the unenviable position of being sought...

    What's more interesting: Arnold Schwarzenegger running for governor of California, or the phalanx of sycophants advising him, while looking for their own piece of the political action? If it's the latter that fascinates you, check out HBO's upcoming K Street, a 10-week series due Sept. 14 from George Clooney and director Steven Soderbergh. Washington power couple James Carville and Mary Matalin play versions of themselves in the series, which mixes real-life political figures with actors improvising roles as fictional lobbyists. K Street aims to portray the cynicism and idealism involved in Washington lawmaking machinery, but promises to take no ideological...
