    The most immediate embodiment of McCain’s problems is Kelli Ward, 47, a former state senator who knows that Trump crushed the field in the March presidential primary by stoking the fires of Arizona’s long-running battles over illegal immigrants crossing the southern border. Ward is McCain’s main primary challenger Tuesday; she has attended Trump rallies and embraced his rhetoric while highlighting McCain’s bipartisan work on immigration bills that would grant undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship. “He’s the champion of compromise,” she said of McCain in an hour-long interview in a Scottsdale campaign office, not intending it as a compliment.

    PPP's new Arizona poll finds that John McCain has a negative approval rating with Republican primary voters, and is at pretty serious risk of losing nomination for another term. Only 35% of GOP voters approve of the job McCain is doing to 50% who disapprove. He's in particularly poor standing with conservative voters. Among 'somewhat conservative' voters his approval spread is 33/52, and among 'very conservative' voters it drops all the way down to 18/67.

    Among the works by her exhibited at ArtPal is a painting with the title “The Shape of Our Kind,” ... A better title would have been ‘The Slave Ship.” That’s the title that Romantic landscape painter J.M.W. Turner gave to his 1840 masterpiece, which hangs in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. ... While Dolezal’s painting is not identical pixel for pixel, the style and content are unmistakably lifted from the Turner work. Unlike the Turner painting, which is priceless, Dolezal’s near-knockoff comes with a price: $5,100. Maybe a psychiatric evaluation wouldn’t be such a bad idea after all.

Tea party favorite and two-term state lawmaker Raul Labrador defeated Vaughn Ward, a Marine reservist heavily recruited by national Republicans, in Idaho's primary on Tuesday. Ward's loss comes on the heels of several other races in which GOP establishment candidates stumbled as the anti-Washington mood takes hold. National Republicans had coached Ward and had made him one of their first named recruits, known as "Young Guns." He also had the backing of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

    I am voting for Vaughn Ward in the May 25th primary election. The opposition to Mr. Ward is waging a ‘campaign of criticism’ against him. This strategy appears in socialist Saul Alinsky’s, “Rules for Radicals”. One of Alinsky’s tactics is to continually ‘criticize’ opponents in order to destroy their credibility, instead of focusing on their positions on major issues—for example, the attack on Vaughn’s wife for holding a job at Fannie Mae. However, the positions of Vaughn’s opponent, immigration attorney Raul Labrador, are troubling. State Representative Labrador advocated for the Dream Act amnesty at the City Club of Boise, on...

Notable for their absence are incumbent Reps. Walt Minnick and Mike Simpson and Labrador's principal opponent in the 1st District GOP race, Vaughn Ward. Minnick, a 1st District Democrat, “opted out” of the survey, meaning he replied to the request on time but declined to complete the survey in full, as Tea Party Boise required. Read more:

Walt Minnick in Idaho figured to at least have a shot at an endorsement to switch the seat from a vote for Nancy Pelosi and Democratic control of the House. Instead, the Tea Party Express endorsed Minnick, and left a lot of head-scratching behind in Idaho afterward: When the Tea Party Express last week endorsed Idaho Rep.

    Rep. Walt Minnick, D-Idaho, has announced the list of charities that will receive $10,000 Minnick got from Rep. Charles Rangel's National Leadership PAC for the 2008 election. Rangel, D-N.Y., stepped down as chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee Wednesday, after he was admonished last week for taking two corporate-sponsored trips to the Caribbean in violation of House rules. Meanwhile, Republican challenger Vaughn Ward said Minnick should donate an additional $44,290 in contributions collected from individuals and political action committees in 2008 by another Rangel group, the Rangel Victory Fund, and transferred to Minnick.
