    Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.) on Sunday said he believes the Democratic Party could win in 2020 if they pick someone "unexpected" as their party's presidential nominee. Santorum, asked if there were any potential Democratic candidates he was afraid of, pointed to previous presidential contests, saying all of the Democratic candidates who won were "not the favorite" at the time. "When the Democrats win, they pick someone unexpected or someone who’s not the favorite," Santorum, a CNN analyst, said on CNN's "State of the Union." "[Former Presidents] Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter," he listed. "When they pick [failed...

    He says he's Lyin’ Ted no more. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, declared on Saturday night that the ignominious nickname bestowed on him by President Trump during the 2016 campaign season has been relegated to the annals of history -- as has the feud between Cruz and Trump. "This was also a breakthrough year in which my presidential sobriquet went from 'Lyin’ Ted' to 'Beautiful Ted,'" Cruz joked during a speech at the Gridiron Club. Cruz was joking, in the spirit of the roast. He also quipped: “I gotta say, that new pet name felt like it really hit the mark....

    Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke is changing his tune about the possibility of running for president in 2020. Prior to his narrow loss in the Texas US Senate race to Republican Ted Cruz, O'Rourke had repeatedly insisted he would not run for president. Now, he's leaving the door open. He said Monday he will finish his term in the House in January and focus with his wife and children on "being together as a family" until then.

    It should tell us something about her home country that a mother is willing to travel 2,000 miles with her 4-month old son to come here. Should tell us something about our country that we only respond to this desperate need once she is at our border. So far, in this administration, that response has included taking kids from their parents, locking them up in cages, and now tear gassing them at the border. People are leaving violent countries where they fear for their lives. Without money, they are subsisting on hope for their kids, for themselves, that they can...

"Beto, noticed Ted sitting down and walked over to congratulate him on his re-election campaign," Easter wrote. "It was the first time they had seen each other since the election and the entire conversation was both of them talking about how they could move forward TOGETHER."

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said “under no circumstances” should the so-called migrant caravan be allowed to cross into the United States. Partial transcript as follows: BRENNAN: You were very critical of the Obama administration for taking action via executive fiat as you said, you called it dangerous. This week President Trump on immigration has issued orders bypassing Congress to restrict how migrants crossing the border illegally can claim asylum. Are you OK with that now? CRUZ: Well I’m still studying this specific immigration order, but I’ll tell you look, here’s my view on executive...

    Project Veritas dropped an undercover video earlier Tuesday showing election officials admitting “tons” of non-citizens are voting in Texas. O’Keefe’s undercover video caught the attention of Texas Governor Gregg Abbott. “This will be investigated,” Abbott said of the non-citizens being encouraged to vote by election officials. In the video, a Project Veritas undercover journalist asked a Texas election official if her “DREAMer” boyfriend can vote as long as he is registered to vote and has a driver’s license. “Yeah okay” the election official responded. “If he has his ID that’s all he needs. If he’s registered,” the election official said...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) fended off Democrat challenger Robert Francis O’Rourke to win re-election in a high-profile Senate race Tuesday, but establishment media pundits, Hollywood celebrities, and liberal activists did not lose hope — they had now moved on to dreams of “Beto 2020.” Cruz finished a surprising second in the 2016 Republican presidential primary and began the Senate race as a prohibitive favorite. However, O’Rourke visited fiercely conservative parts of the state that his party had long since given up on, while shattering fundraising records despite shunning donations from outside political groups and pollster advice. Cruz argued that his...

    Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas outperformed pro-abortion Democratic challenger Rep. Beto O’Rourke and won a Senate victory despite O’Rourke raking in unprecedented campaign contributions and a love-affair from the mainstream media. The abortion activist had raised nearly $40 million in the third quarter of 2018, smashing the all-time record for most raised in one quarter, previously set at $22 million. Comparatively, Cruz raised roughly $12 over the same period. After O’Rourke revealed he wouldn’t be sharing any of the war chest he amassed with the other Democrats in tight races, Cruz took a jestful shot at the congressman, saying...
