    CARACAS, May 22 (Reuters) - Betsabeth Casique saved for eight months for bus tickets out of Venezuela for herself and her three children. At 1.4 million bolivars each, they are worth what she earns in a month working as a nurse. It is less than two dollars at the black market exchange rate. When socialist President Nicolas Maduro won re-election to a six-year term on Sunday in a vote the opposition and foreign governments called illegitimate, Casique decided to leave, first for the western city of San Cristobal and from there to Cucuta, Colombia. "That was the straw that broke...

    President Trump’s campaign for re-election in 2020 raked in $10 million for the first quarter of 2018, bringing the campaign’s total fundraising haul to $28 million, the campaign announced Sunday. Trump’s campaign had $22 million cash on hand by the end of 2017 and spent $3.9 million during the first quarter of 2018, Reuters reported. The president is also working with the Republican National Committee to raise money for GOP congressional candidates for the 2018 midterm elections. The National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC) hauled in a record $85 million in campaign cash in the off-year election cycle ahead of the...

    SANDY HOOK, Ky. (AP) — The regulars amble in before dawn and claim their usual table, the one next to an old box television playing the news on mute. Steven Whitt fires up the coffee pot and flips on the fluorescent sign in the window of the Frosty Freeze, his diner that looks and sounds and smells about the same as it did when it opened a half-century ago. Coffee is 50 cents a cup, refills 25 cents. The pot sits on the counter, and payment is based on the honor system. People like it that way, he thinks. It...

    In no uncertain terms, Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin said he isn't going to toe the party line on every policy issue, just because he's up for re-election. "I don't give a sh*t, you understand? I just don't give a sh*t," he told the Charleston Gazette-Mail Sunday. "Don't care if I get elected, don't care if I get defeated, how about that. If they think because I'm up for election, that I can be wrangled into voting for sh*t that I don't like and can't explain, they're all crazy." He continued: "I'm not scared of an election, let's put it that...

    Demonstrators in Paraguay have set fire to the country's Congress amid violent protests against a bill that would let the president seek re-election. Protestors stormed the legislature, breaking windows and fences. The countries 1992 constitution, introduced after 35 years of dictatorship, strictly limits the president to a single five-year term. But sitting President Horactio Cartes is attempting to remove the restriction and run for re-election. Protestors were photographed smashing in windows of the congress building in Asuncion on Friday night and setting fire to the interior.

    Tyler DurdenJanuary 23, 2017 As Democrats have struggled to rebuild in the "Post-Trump" era, one coping mechanism employed has been to focus on their potential contenders for the White House in 2020. In fact, about a month ago we published a list, crafted by The Hill, of the top names being tossed around that were expected to make a bid for the Democratic nomination in four years (see "Here's Who Democrats Say Are The Top 15 Presidential Candidates For 2020"). Not surprisingly, and proving that Democrats learned very little from the 2016 election cycle, the list included several well-known establishment...

    PARIS — President François Hollande stunned France on Thursday when he announced that he would not run for a second term in next year’s presidential election. In a televised address from the Élysée Palace, Mr. Hollande said that he was “aware of the risks” of a candidacy that would not “rally” enough people to it. “I have thus decided not to be a candidate in the presidential elections,” Mr. Hollande said. Mr. Hollande, a Socialist, ended weeks of speculation about his intentions to participate in a re-election bid that few observers thought he could win. He has had some of...

    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, plans to run for re-election in 2018. Cruz, who ended his presidential campaign last week, said "yes" when asked Wednesday morning by a reporter in Washington, D.C., if he would seek a second term, according to CNN and The Hill. Cruz's office later confirmed the exchange. The announcement adds some clarity to Cruz's political future following his decision to exit the presidential race on May 3. While Cruz could change his mind, running for re-election in 2018 puts to rest some speculation he would sit out a second term to prepare for a comeback bid...

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz, broke Sunday with GOP colleagues including ally Lindsey Graham by suggesting Republicans rally behind Donald Trump. "You have to listen to people that have chosen the nominee of our Republican Party," the Arizona senator and 2008 GOP nominee said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday. "I think it would be foolish to ignore them." McCain recently said privately that with Trump as the GOP's nominee, his re-election chances this year in Arizona are in danger. "This may be the race of my life," McCain said at an Arizona fundraiser in April.

    There you have it. How corruption starts. In one single word it begins with -REELECTION! Sorry to have been out-of-commission for so long, but as advanced years descend more rapidly than a conservative thought by a liberal, they take their toll, more on my home life than I’d care to speak about. But hopefully, they haven’t broken the love-for-America spirit in my heart and soul where the patriotic conservative still lives on. In fact, a post on the Internet a few days ago by a friend covering an article attributed to Bill Bennett, a proven conservative, when talking about presidential...

    Only 216 Republicans voted to re-elect a humbled Ohio Republican Rep. John Boehner as Speaker of the U.S. House on Tuesday, as many Republicans voted for alternative candidates in the second organized attempt to unseat Boehner in as many speakership elections. He wins re-election as Speaker with less than a majority of the House, something that has happened only four times since 1917. A total of 25 Republicans in the chamber did not vote for Boehner, with 24 voting for alternative candidates and others who were not nominated and one voting present. Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI), Rod Blum (R-IA), Dave...

Elected governor of the nationÂ’s most populous state in 1974 at the age of 36, but later a three-time loser in presidential races, he was thought to be washed up before his 45th birthday.

    It’s not often that a political candidate’s re-election campaign speech goes viral. But no doubt Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos would have liked the video of his speech over the weekend in the coastal city of Barranquilla to have gone viral because of the power of his message, or mesmerizing oratorical style, instead of The Spot. Video of the speech shows a spot appearing and spreading on Santos’ pants – which unfortunately were a light tan color – during his speech to supporters.

    WASHINGTON — In the clearest indication yet that Sen. John McCain is gearing up to run for a sixth term, the Arizona Republican is holding a Washington fundraiser at the end of January. McCain is not up for reelection until 2016, but appears to be kicking things off early. An invitation from “Friends of John McCain” bills a Jan. 28 fundraiser as the senator’s “first DC re-elect reception” at Johnny’s Half Shell in Washington. Requested donations range between $1,000 and $5,200.In December, McCain hosted a New York fundraiser as he “[considered] running for re-election to the U.S. Senate.” McCain...

    Key factions of the Democratic Party, which have largely been unified through some trying times in 2013, are now turning on each other. Amid the botched rollout of ObamaCare and plummeting poll numbers, the simmering tensions within the party have intensified — and become very public. A flashpoint came this week when Third Way, a centrist Democratic think tank, published an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal bashing Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and her allies for trying to lure the party over a “populist cliff.” They took aim at her proposal to pay for an expansion of Social Security benefits...
