Redistricting Edge Saved GOP From Deeper Midterm Losses

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Democrats won more votes, regained control of the U.S. House and flipped hundreds of seats in state legislatures during the 2018 elections. It was, by most accounts, a good year for the party. Yet it wasn’t as bad as it could have been for Republicans. That’s because they may have benefited from a built-in advantage in some states, based on how political districts were drawn, that prevented deeper losses or helped them hold on to power, according to a mathematical an...

Pence Dispatched To Charm GOP Elders, Get Never-Trumpers On Board For 2020

Vice President Mike Pence has been dispatched by the Trump reelection effort to woo the reigning GOP donor class and to convince the deep-pocketed and Trump-resistant patricians to support the President this time around. According to a Thursday Politico report, Republicans think they’ll need $1 billion for the reelection effort to counter Democrats’ enthusiasm — a figure only possible if old-school conservatives get on board. “The conventional wisdom and the quote ‘word on the street’ in Nove...

GOP Senators Push Back Against Trump’s Relentless McCain Attacks

WASHINGTON (AP) — Casting aside rare censure from Republican lawmakers, President Donald Trump aimed new blasts of invective at the late John McCain , even claiming credit for the senator’s moving Washington funeral and complaining he was never properly thanked. By the time the president began his anti-McCain tirade in Ohio on Wednesday, several leading Republicans had signaled a new willingness to defy Trump by defending the Vietnam War veteran as a hero seven months after he died of brain c...

Trump Unleashes Fresh Attack on McCain Following GOP Criticism

Trump enumerated a list of grievances against McCain, who died in August, including that he had wrongly supported the war in Iraq, failed to “get the job done” for veterans and “badly” hurt the Republican party and the nation by voting against repealing Obamacare. The president also complained that McCain had turned over the so-called Steele dossier to federal authorities during the 2016 presidential campaign instead of alerting Trump himself.

Trump’s Stonewall Strategy

We have every reason to believe that Donald Trump is the most corrupt American president since at least Warren Harding and perhaps ever. The fact that his adult sons continue to manage his business while serving as informal White House advisors is itself a major scandal. A big reason for wanting the Democrats to win back the House of Representatives in 2018 was the promise that they would do the work of oversight that the congressional GOP had avoided. But now that congressional oversight is her...
