Dems Avoid Bloody Primary In Key Senate Race

Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-AZ) has decided against a Senate bid, a huge relief for Democrats who worried a competitive Senate primary in the state could damage their chances at defeating Sen. Martha McSally (R-AZ) in 2020. Gallego told the Arizona Republic that he wouldn’t run in order to avoid a costly primary against former astronaut Mark Kelly (D), the husband of former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) who is already in the race. “I don’t want to engage in a bitter primary all the way until the genera...

GOP Women Try To Shut Trump Up About McCain

Two female Republican senators, Sens. Martha McSally (R-AZ) and Susan Collins (R-ME), have joined the limp GOP effort to gag President Donald Trump on the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ). McSally, who has more skin in the game than most, as she hails from McCain’s state where he is still quite popular, told Politico that she spoke to the President directly. “There is a lot of disrespect going on out there all the way around,” she said on Thursday. “I did talk to the President yesterday. I wanted...

Ernst Mildly Swats At President On McCain: ‘I Don’t Appreciate It’

Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) joined a couple of her colleagues in offering up a milquetoast rebuke of President Donald Trump’s vicious treatment of the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), according to a Thursday Politico report. “I do not appreciate his tweets,” she said during a local town hall. “John McCain is a dear friend of mine. So, no I don’t agree with President Trump and he does need to stop.” “He’s dear to me,” she added. “I can’t stop the President, what I can do is say Mr. President — I don’t...

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....

12 Republicans Cross Trump As Senate Votes To Repeal Emergency Declaration

The Senate has voted to undo President Trump’s emergency declaration on the U.S.-Mexico border, the most high-profile and bipartisan rebuke of Trump’s presidency.

The final vote was 59-41. A number of senior Republicans who hadn’t voted against Trump on any previous major legislation broke with th...

Trump Squeezes Skittish 2020 Senate Republicans On Emergency Declaration

Damned if you do, tweeted at if you don’t. President Trump’s continued pressure on Republicans to stand with him on his emergency declaration and rejection of a GOP compromise has put those facing reelection in an impossible position — forcing them to choose between crossing their grudge-holding party leader or risking blowback from voters in their home states. Trump has gone on the warpath against the Republicans who disagree with him on the emergency declaration, increasingly attacking them ...

Ex-pilot: I understand Martha McSally's pain

Sen. Martha McSally's revelation that she was raped while serving in the military was disturbing -- and unfortunately not surprising, says Mary "Missy" Cummings, a former naval officer who left the military for the tech world and found more of the same. Both sectors have a critical need to address gender inequality and sexual abuse, she says.
