    CHEYENNE, Wyo. -- Donald Trump's presidential campaign has all but thrown in the towel in Wyoming ahead of Saturday's Republican convention. The billionaire businessman's campaign made a conscious decision not to commit resources to Wyoming, according to Alan Cobb, a senior Trump adviser. Trump picked only up a single delegate in last month's Wyoming county conventions while rival Ted Cruz scored nine. There are 14 more delegates at stake at this weekend's state convention. In a telephone interview with The Associated Press from the convention site in Casper, Cobb said Friday that he expects Cruz to sweep what remains of...

    GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz is securing a majority of the delegates from county Republican parties in Wyoming, with over half of the results in Saturday afternoon. Republicans in Sheridan, Sweetwater, Laramie, Hot Springs, Converse and Uinta counties selected delegates who are pledging to support the U.S. senator from Texas in the Republican National Convention in July. In Albany County, Republicans selected a delegate who will support Marco Rubio, a U.S. senator from Florida. The delegate from Teton County will support businessman Donald Trump. Republican parties in all 23 counties are meeting Saturday to select delegates or alternates to the...

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) -- Ted Cruz will find out if his campaign stop in Wyoming last summer paid off when Republicans gather for their county caucuses Saturday to select the state's first 12 presidential delegates. The Texas senator is the only active GOP candidate to campaign in Wyoming, which will bring a total of 29 delegates to the national convention, more than any state of similar size because of its strong Republican leanings. Saturday's county conventions are being held ahead of primaries in Florida, Illinois, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio that could shape the rest of the race. If Wyoming's...

    SALT LAKE CITY — Donald Trump continues to be the front-runner in the GOP presidential nomination race, but he's languishing in fourth place in a new poll of Utah voters. The new poll by Dan Jones & Associates comes as former Utah governor and 2012 presidential candidate Jon Huntsman Jr. is suggesting Trump has a shot at winning the White House. "People really are hungry for change. They were last time, but it hadn't reached the 212-degree boiling point. This time it has," Huntsman told USA Today's weekly "Capital Download" video series. Huntsman said that's why he thinks Trump,...

    Sen. Al Simpson (R-WY) retired from the Senate in 1997, but he is now celebrating another political victory in his state. The retired senator ran and won his election as a member of the Republican precinct committee in his hometown of Cody, Wyoming, together with his wife Ann. Both Simpsons earned a majority of the vote, effectively pushing out Tea Party Republicans in the precinct. “We decided we’d start over,” Simpson explained in an interview with Breitbart News. “We did that about forty years ago when we started in politics.” Although he retired from state politics long ago, Simpson indicated...

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Monday that the tea party is a positive influence on the Republican Party. “I think they raised issues that an awful lot of Americans care about,” Cheney said on NBC’s “Today” show. “It’s an uprising, in part, and the good thing is it’s taken place within the Republican Party. I don’t see it as a negative. I think it’s much better to have that kind of turmoil and change in the Republican Party than it would be to have it outside.” Cheney, who has a new book coming out about struggles with his heart...

    In the latest poll out regarding the Wyoming GOP primary for senate, incumbent Senator Mike Enzi holds a strong lead over challenger Liz Cheney. After announcing she would run for the Republican nomination in the 2014 Wyoming senate race, many Republicans had opinions of the choice. But in the latest poll out of Wyoming, Mike Enzi leads the former VP’s daughter by over 30 points. If the race were held today 55 percent said they would support Senator Enzi, whereas only 21 percent support Cheney’s efforts. Just over three-quarters of the state’s voters view Enzi favorably, compared with just 6...

    Near the end of March 2010, as Republicans outside Kentucky realized that Rand Paul might actually become a senator, Paul’s opponent received an unexpected and important-looking endorsement. “I’m a lifelong conservative, and I can tell the real thing when I see it,” announced Dick Cheney. “I have looked at the records of both candidates in the race, and it is clear to me that Trey Grayson is right on the issues that matter—both on fiscal responsibility and on national security.” Paul’s campaign was half-unsurprised, half-amused. They’d seen this coming a week before, when former Cheney policy adviser Cesar Conda emailed...

Enzi has kept a low profile since the daughter of the former vice president announced her campaign Tuesday. In a news release Thursday, Enzi said many people have been calling and emailing to offer their support. He said his focus remains on the job he was elected to do.

    Mitt Romney has won Wyoming's presidential caucus vote, a series of county straw polls that took place over the last three weeks. With 39 percent, Romney finished ahead of Rick Santorum (32 percent), Ron Paul (21 percent) and Newt Gingrich (8 percent). The Wyoming GOP released the final results Wednesday night. Like Iowa's presidential caucus vote, Wyoming's is not binding and will in no way affect the state's 29 delegates. Wyoming's caucuses, however, took place over the better part of a month: Counties were allowed to hold their precinct caucuses over a wide range of time, and the first county...

    Oh, I’m sure some of you folks are laughing out loud at the idea that ex-vice president Dick Cheney considered by some to be an ideal candidate for president in 2012. But that’s only because you aren’t a rabid right-winger who thinks the only thing wrong with the Bush administration is that they didn’t torture enough Muslims. Believe me, they are out there: Craig Shirley, a longtime Republican strategist who often has his finger on the pulse of the party’s base, concurred while also noting that Cheney can galvanize conservatives in ways few other current figures can. “In 2009, there...

    The general election race for Wyoming's lone U.S. House seat could be another nail-biter, a new Casper Star-Tribune poll shows. Democrat Gary Trauner, the Teton County businessman who narrowly lost to Rep. Barbara Cubin in 2006, is in a statistical tie with former state treasurer Cynthia Lummis, a Republican, the results show. The poll by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research of Washington, D.C., on Jan. 18-21, surveyed 625 registered voters from across the state who said they regularly vote in Wyoming state elections. It had a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points. If the election were held...

    Former Wyoming State Treasurer Cynthia Lummis announced today (Wednesday) that she will seek election to Wyoming's lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The 53-year-old Lummis ended her second term as state treasurer early last year. She's also served seven terms in the Wyoming Legislature and served two years as chief counsel to former Wyoming Governor Jim Geringer. Lummis is running for the seat that will be vacated by Rep. Barbara Cubin, R-Wyo., who recently announced that she won't seek re-election this year. Lummis was among three finalists the Wyoming Republican Party submitted to Gov. Dave Freudenthal for his...

The 28-year-old state representative from Cheyenne said that is why he intends to seek the Republican nomination for the U.S. House next year. Zwonitzer announced formation of his exploratory campaign committee Tuesday and said he will make a formal announcement of his candidacy for the state's only U.S. House seat after the 2008 legislative budget session ends in March. “At this stage you can still explore without the Federal Election Commission coming in with regulations,” he said...

    The last time Wyoming Republicans competed for a seat in the U.S. Congress, 31 people applied for the job. State GOP Chairman Fred Parady is predicting a more manageable number this time around. "I think we'll have our traditional, open Republican primary with six or eight, eight or nine candidates," he said about the field to succeed Cubin next year. Saturday, U.S. Rep. Barbara Cubin announced she would not seek re-election for Wyoming's lone House seat. Parady said competition for the open spot is a good thing. "That's how we produce new leaders and people that have the drive to...

    Rep. Barbara Cubin (R-Wyo.) has virtually no money left in her campaign account after raising only $11,000 in the entire third quarter. She ended the third quarter with $8,651 cash-on-hand. Her meager fundraising will continue to fuel speculation that the seven-term lawmaker may not run for re-election. Despite running in the heavily Republican state of Wyoming, Cubin has faced serious Democratic challenges in recent years. In 2006, Cubin only defeated rancher Gary Trauner by less than a one-point margin in the state’s closest House race in 36 years. Trauner announced Monday that he would be seeking a rematch against Cubin....

The newfound attention comes on the heels of a decision by the Wyoming Republican Party to move its county conventions up to Jan. 5, to be closer to the New Hampshire primary, traditionally the first in the nation. "It behooves all the candidates to pay attention to the state of Wyoming," said Joe Schloss, chairman of the Teton County Republican Party. A crowd...

    CHEYENNE -- Getting the national media spotlight to shine on Wyoming politics is a little like getting sunlight to the floor of the rainforest. But the state GOP has chopped away some of the old growth lately by joining a handful of states jockeying for early presidential caucuses and primaries. Wyoming's early county conventions has also attracted an unprecedented four presidential candidates to forums this weekend in Casper and Riverton, including former Tennessee senator and "Law and Order" TV star Fred Thompson. The early conventions were the brainchild of Tom Sansonetti, the longtime GOP activist, former Justice Department official and...

Both will also be open to the public. The state Republican Party has said Sen. Sam Brownbeck, Rep. Ron...

    As Wyoming prepared to mourn the late Sen. Craig Thomas (R.-WY), who died last week at 74, the state's unique succession process was quietly beginning to take effect. Under the state law, when a Senate vacancy occurs, the governor must appoint a sucessor from the same party as the previous holder of the seat. Accordingly, the 71-member Republican state committee will meet on June 15th and submit three names. Democratic Gov. Dave Freudenthal will choose the new senator from the three and a special election will be held in November of 2008 to fill the remainder of the term won...

"She is raising money," said Cubin spokeswoman Alison McGuire. "It's way too early to be focusing on the campaign right now, but she'll be making an announcement at the appropriate time." That time would be much closer to the election, McGuire said, noting that Cubin has never started a campaign this early.

    With all but a few precincts reporting, U.S. Rep. Barbara Cubin declared victory over Democratic challenger and Wilson resident Gary Trauner just after midnight Tuesday. According to the results available at 1 a.m., Cubin led Trauner by a mere 700 votes; 91,385 to 90,685. A win by fewer than 913 votes would automatically trigger a recount under Wyoming state law. ?I?m calling it,? she told the Associated Press early Wednesday morning. ?I just feel really gratified that we?re ahead, and I?m sure that we won the election.?

    Last night, I was told that a report was recently published by some DC think-tank. This report ranked members of congress in order of taxpayer-friendliness, i.e. it examined their votes on tax-related bills and determined where any particular member of congress came in on higher or lower taxes for their constituents. The same person who told me about the report told me that a whopping 75% of house and senate members from my state were in the top 20 LEAST friendly to taxpayers in their voting records. Have any of you heard of this report? Can you point me to...

    I've seen the senate races heating up, but not nearly as much on the house seats. I'm mostly using information from DC POLITICAL REPORT and POLITICS1. STATES Alabama DISTRICT 3 - The other Mike Rogers (R) won in 02 with 50.3% over Democrat Joe Turnham(48.2%) in an open seat. So far, it looks as he is facing Democrat Bill Fuller, Ex-State Human Resources Commissioner. I haven't heard much about this race, but the first defense is hardest. Alaska SENATE - Lisa Murkowski(R) vs Ex governor Tony Knowles. This will be a tough race as Knowles is an ex-governor and Murkowski...
  • Why Spanish Election results are irrelevent to US War on Terror

    Journalists, political pundits and other Hysteric Left activists are desperately trying to spin some cosmic significance out of Sunday's Spanish elections. The "conventional wisdom" is that the Spanish Election results are some sort of significant defeat for President Bush and the War on Terror. As usual the "News Media's" thinking is neither conventional nor wise. What all the various activists miss is the reality of American Exceptionalism. As much as the International Political Left hates, and try's to deny, the reality is the USA operates on a completely different political level then the rest of the world. On Sunday, the...

    The reason for my apology was that throughout this primary season we have been hearing about the record turnout of voters participating in Democrat caucuses and primaries. I bought the lie. The truth is that, except for Iowa and New Hampshire, there has not been any sort of record turnout for the Democrats. Even in New Hampshire the vote was far less than what the Republicans had when they last had a contested primary in 2000. The Democrats this year had 219,787 votes in their primary. The GOP in 2000 had 239,523 votes. That 20,000 difference is major in a...

  • Heinz Foundation Bankrolled Group Protesting Bush 9/11 Ads

    03/07/2004 6:25:25 AM PST · by MNJohnnie · 11 replies · 4,351+ views Well isn't this intresting. The "objective news media" supposed 9-11 surviors protesting Bush's ads are actually anti-war stooges financed by John Kerry's wife. Please take a moment and vist the New York Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, CBS, NBC and ABC etc to email the Omsbudsman, the Publisher, the News Editor and demand to know why they allowed clearly partisan advocates of Kerry's Presidential Campaign were presented on their "News" programs with no reference to their ties to the Kerry camp. We absolutely must demand the "News Media" be held accountable for their free advertising for the Kerry camp.
  • Bush Ads help get the word out

    03/04/2004 11:30:46 AM PST · by MNJohnnie · 3 replies · 5,816+ views Here is a link to the 1st three Bush Re-election ads. As expected the DNC directed its "Objective News Media" mouthpieces at CNN, NBC, CBS and ABC to generate phoney hysteria about these ads. Compared to the demogagery and lies spread by the Kerry Campaign, and the DNC about Bush for the last 6 months, this is probably the mildest sets of ads that have run so far this political season. Please email this link to every person on you email contact list. We need to get as many people as possible to see these ads. They are...

    Conservatives should write in Tom Tancredo in the primary ballot to demonstrate the depth of concern we have with the President. If enough do this, he will get the message.
