Vulnerable 2020 Senate Republicans Stick With Trump On Border Declaration

A dozen Senate Republicans voted to end President Trump’s emergency declaration on Thursday. But those with the most to lose from Trump’s unpopularity stood by their man. Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) was the only one of the Senate Republicans who face potentially tough 2020 reelection races broke with Trump on the vote. Sens. Cory Gardner (R-CO), Martha McSally (R-AZ), Thom Tillis (R-NC), David Perdue (R-GA), John Cornyn (R-TX) and Joni Ernst (R-IA) all voted to protect his emergency declaration....

How Harry Reid’s Democratic Machine Swept Nevada: A Model For Other States

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Harry Reid may no longer lead Senate Democrats in Washington, but the political machine he built in Nevada has Republicans on the run. Democrats romped up and down the state in the Nov. 6 midterm elections, ousting Republican Sen. Dean Heller, winning races for governor and lieutenant governor, and expanding their state legislative majorities. The shellacking was 15 years in the making, the culmination of a long-term plan to shift a battleground into the Democratic column. De...

Bill Nelson Campaign Files Lawsuit To Extend Florida Recount Deadline

Sen. Bill Nelson’s (D-FL) Senate campaign and the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee filed a lawsuit in federal court Tuesday seeking to extend the Thursday deadline for county election officials statewide to complete a machine recount. In the lawsuit, lawyers representing the Democrats argue that officials in certain parts of Florida will not be able to complete a machine recount by Thursday and that such an incomplete recount would violate the Constitution. “Arbitrary application of a...

Why Wait? Democrats Openly Flirt With 2020 White House Bids

WASHINGTON (AP) — In the days after the midterm election, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker worked the phones with Democratic luminaries in Iowa. Montana Gov. Steve Bullock courted high-dollar donors in New York. Other Democrats openly mused about their White House ambitions on live television. Motivated by an urgency to unseat President Donald Trump and the prospect of a historically large primary field, Democrats see little incentive to delay or downplay their 2020 presidential hopes. Their more ...

Why Surprise Result In Florida Gov Race Matters For Fate Of US Senate

In the country’s most expensive 2018 Senate race, Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson just got a boost—free of charge. Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum (D) rode a wave of support from young and minority voters to win a surprise Tuesday night primary election, becoming the state’s first black nominee for governor at the age of only 39. Florida political observers from both sides of the aisle agree that the dynamic, proudly progressive candidate will drive the same sets of sought-after constituents to the ...

Republicans Fret About Campaign Fallout From Trump’s Mounting Legal Woes

John Cornyn (R-TX), the Senate’s second-ranking Republican, told reporters Wednesday afternoon. Others admitted that the news would prove ...

Dems Quietly Bought Websites Implying Incumbent Senators Were ‘For Sale’

WASHINGTON (AP) — Dozens of web addresses implying U.S. senators were “for sale” have been quietly and mysteriously purchased online, amid heightened concerns on Capitol Hill that foreign agents — especially Russians — might be trying to meddle in upcoming midterm elections. An Associated Press investigation found the responsible party: Democrats. The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee acknowledged to the AP that it had quietly purchased the addresses, which use a new internet suffix “fors...

Top Dems Say Election Day Rout Is 2018 Bellwether: The GOP 'Better Look Out'

Top congressional Democrats on Wednesday said the party’s coast-to-coast victories on Election Day show that the “door is certainly open” for a similar triumph in the 2018 midterm elections. “The door is certainly open for us,” House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters. She compared President Donald Trump’s present approval ratings to former President George W. Bush’s job approval in 2005. “In ’05, right now, we have President Bush down to 38 percent,” Pelosi said. “That’s approxi...

Democrats Face Biggest Election Of Trump Era On Tuesday

Democrats face their biggest electoral test of 2017 on Tuesday in Virginia — a must-win if they hope to show they can bounce back in the Trump era. Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam (D) appears to be clinging to a narrow lead against former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie in the race for governor, a key test of whether the wind is really at Democrats’ backs heading into the 2018 midterms and how well they can handle Donald Trump-style GOP race-baiting. If Northam wins, Democrats can cla...

Congressional Democrats Are Crushing The GOP In 2018 Midterm Fundraising

Congressional Democrats are whipping their GOP counterparts in fundraising heading into the 2018 elections, a key sign that a wave election may be building. In both the Senate and House, Democrats are pulling money hand-over-fist in many of their most important races, according to campaign finance reports recently filed with the Federal Election Commission. Many Republicans are struggling to keep up — including some key incumbents in both chambers. That trend is causing heartburn for many Republ...

Pence: 'Altogether Inappropriate And Wrong' If Menendez Stays In Senate

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Testimony from defense witnesses in the bribery trial of Democratic U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez on Tuesday included a curious story involving the former governor of Florida and a zinger by a prosecutor that left jurors chuckling but earned an admonition from the judge. Earlier in the day, Vice President Mike Pence weighed in on the case, telling a radio host it would be wrong for Bob Menendez to stay in office if he’s convicted. The Republican Pence said on Hugh Hewitt’s radio sho...

Will Dems Risk What It Takes To Stop Roy Moore In Alabama?

National Democrats are seriously weighing whether to go big to try to keep controversial former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore (R) out of the Senate. Following Moore’s solid primary victory over appointed Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), Democrats are doing the research to see if there’s a real path for former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones (D) over his divisive foe. And while they’re not ready to commit major resources to a state as crimson red as Alabama at this point, Senate Democrats are...

Tennessee GOP Sen. Bob Corker Announces He Won't Seek Re-Election

Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) won’t run for another term in office, he announced Tuesday, creating a vacuum at the head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and a vacancy for the Senate that’s likely to be hard-fought in the primary and potentially the general election. “After much thought, consideration and family discussion over the past year, Elizabeth and I have decided that I will leave the United States Senate when my term expires at the end of 2018,” Corker said in a statement Tuesday after...

Senate GOP Leadership Super PAC Encourages Kid Rock To Run For Senate

WASHINGTON (AP) — The head of a major Super PAC aligned with Senate GOP leadership encouraged performer Kid Rock to run for Senate against Democratic incumbent Debbie Stabenow of Michigan. The comments from Steven Law in an interview Friday on C-SPAN’s “Newsmakers” program were surprising. But Law insisted he was quite serious, saying his group would “be actually very interested” in a Kid Rock candidacy. Kid Rock has made some moves to look at the race, including setting up a campaign website an...

Campaign Cash Pours In Against Republicans Who Voted To Repeal The Affordable Care Act

WASHINGTON ―  What are the political ramifications of threatening to let your constituents die needlessly? Up until May 4, 2017, it would have been a theoretical question for which political scientists lacked the data to answer. But come 2018, we’ll find out. Democrats feel like they already know the answer. For a party that just watched its signature legislative achievement get repealed in a tight vote on the House floor, Democrats had quite the spring in their step, even breaking into so...

Democrats Want To Pick Their Battles With Trump. Their Base Wants All-Out War.

WASHINGTON ― Shortly after the November election, a close associate of Dr. Ben Carson conceded the famed pediatric neurosurgeon turned Republican presidential candidate wasn’t right for a position in Donald Trump’s Cabinet since he had no experience running a federal agency. Weeks later, Trump nominated Carson to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and Carson accepted. Democrats were both befuddled and appalled at what seemed to be a cavalier decision to hand the keys of...
