    Married Republican Rep. Van Taylor dropped his bid for reelection Wednesday after apologizing for having a nine-month affair with the so-called 'ISIS bride.' 'Today I am announcing I will not continue my campaign to seek reelection to Congres,' Taylor emailed supporters, according to The Dallas Morning News. 'About a year ago, I made a horrible mistake that has caused deep hurt and pain among those I love most in this world. I had an affair, it was wrong, and it was the greatest failure of my life.' Taylor had been headed to a runoff against former Collin County judge Keith Self, when he didn't hit the plus-50 per cent threshold in Tuesday's Texas GOP primary, after his nine-month affair with Tania Joya was exposed by conservative news outlets.  Married Republican Rep.

    President Joe Biden said he intends to run for reelection in 2024 with Vice President Kamala Harris at his side and praised her efforts in office. “She’s going to be my running mate,” Biden told reporters during a news conference at the White House on Wednesday. Harris stoked speculation over her reelection prospects last month upon telling reporters that she and Biden had yet to discuss a second bid. In an interview last week, Harris attempted to deflect scrutiny over her prospects before dismissing speculation about a possible replacement as “gossip." HILL-ARIOUS: DEMOCRATS LAUGH OFF HILLARY CLINTON 2024 TALK “I’m sorry, we are thinking about today,” Harris told NBC’s Craig Melvin in response to a question about whether Democrats intend to run the same ticket for 2024. “Honestly, I know why you are asking the question,” she added. “Because this is part of the punditry and the gossip around places like Washington, D.C.” Asked about Harris’s work on voting rights, Biden on Wednesday said he approved of the job his vice president is doing despite Democrats’ elections and voting legislation...
    (CNN)President Joe Biden said Wednesday that a rematch against former President Donald Trump in 2024 only increases his desire to run for reelection.In an interview with ABC News, Biden once again says he intends to run for reelection in 2024, though he left a little wiggle room in his answer."Yes. But look, I'm a great respecter of fate -- fate has intervened in my life many, many times. If I'm in the health I'm in now -- I'm in good health -- then in fact I would run again," Biden said.Pressed by ABC's David Muir if he'd be up for a rematch against Trump, Biden joked, "You're trying to tempt me now.""Sure. Why would I not run against Donald Trump? He's the nominee, that increases the prospect of running," Biden added.Read MoreThe President has been adamant that he will run for reelection in 2024, despite the fact that he will be 81 years old on Election Day.

    Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is officially kicking off his re-election bid to lead the Sunshine State again on Monday after his term ends in January 2023.   He announced his candidacy on Facebook late this morning, writing 'Florida's future is on the line, and we have too much to lose to stop now. I've fought like hell to keep Florida free and I can tell you this: I've only begun to fight!' 'Election Day is exactly 1 year away and freedom is on the ballot. Let’s do this' On the same day he also rolled out four new legislative proposals aimed at blocking President Joe Biden's sweeping vaccine mandates that could see hundreds of people who refuse to get vaccinated lose their jobs.  'When I became governor, I pledged to foster economic opportunity, support K-12 education, usher in a new era for Florida’s Everglades and water resources, ensure the integrity of our elections and stand for public safety and the rule of law,' DeSantis said in a statement announcing his candidacy to Fox News. The governor said he 'delivered on...
    Donald Trump said Saturday evening that his loyal base will need to turn out for Republican Glenn Youngkin to win the Virginia gubernatorial race on Tuesday. 'I think he should win,' Trump told Fox news' Jeanine Pirro in an interview that aired Saturday evening. 'I'll be honest, my base has to turn out.' Trump endorsed Youngkin against Democratic contender Terry McAuliffe, who served a Virginia's governor from 2014 to 2018. The former president is holding a tele-rally for Youngkin on Monday, which the candidate will not make an appearance at – making it seem that he is trying to distance himself from the former president.  The endorsement, Trump insinuated, is key for Republican candidates to get voters from the ex-president's base to turn out in elections that may have otherwise not gained as much national attention. Democrats have labeled Youngkin as a 'Trump acolyte' to try and deter independents and moderates from voting him in as the next Virginia governor, but Trump said that tactic 'backfires because I think it gets the base to come out and vote.' 'The last...
    Joshua Roberts / Getty Images Former President Donald Trump put out a statement endorsing Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro for reelection — minutes after a Brazil senate panel recommended Bolsonaro be criminally charged for his failed pandemic response. Trump put out a statement Tuesday night touting Bolsonaro as a “great friend.” “He fights hard for, and loves, the people of Brazil,” Trump said. “Just like I do for the people of the United States. Brazil is lucky to have a man such as Jair Bolsonaro working for them.” “He is a great President and will never let the people of his great country down!” he added.

    Former President Donald Trump tore into outgoing Ohio Republican Rep. Anthony Gonzalez on Friday morning, after the lawmaker announced he wouldn't be seeking re-election with an outgoing message where he called Trump a 'cancer' and denounced 'toxic dynamics within my own party.' Trump accused Gonzalez of being a 'Republican in name only' and reiterated his support for his own former aide's 2022 primary bid for the seat in an impassioned statement sent by Trump's Save America PAC.  'Good riddance to Anthony, he can now get himself a job at ratings-dead CNN or MSDNC!' the ex-president said. Gonzalez was once a top recruit for the House GOP, but he quickly fell from favor after being one of 10 Republican lawmakers who voted to impeach Trump following the Capitol riot.  He was censured by the Ohio Republican Party as a result.    'RINO Congressman Anthony Gonzalez, who has poorly represented his district in the Great State of Ohio, has decided to quit after enduring a tremendous loss of popularity, of which he had little, since his ill-informed and otherwise very stupid impeachment vote...
    March 25, 2021 4:54 PM | With information from EFE 15 minutes. US President Joe Biden said Thursday that he intends to run for reelection in the 2024 elections and assured that he would like the current vice president, Kamala Harris, to remain his running mate. “My plan is to run for reelection. That is my intention,” Biden said during his first press conference since coming to power on January 20. However, he later clarified that never in his life did he manage to make plans four or three and a half years in advance. Specifically, visibly frustrated by journalists asking him to elaborate on his plans, Biden replied: “Look, I don’t know where you guys come from. I have a lot of respect for destiny and I’m not able to make plans for sure four or three and a half years in advance.”. The president also said that he expects Harris to be his running mate as a candidate for the Vice Presidency in 2024. He assured that he is being a “great partner.” New clash Biden Vs Trump?...
    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday laughed off former President Donald Trump’s claim of credit for his 2020 re-election. The Kentucky Republican chuckled to reporters in Washington Tuesday and said, “Yeah, well, I want to thank him for the 15 point margin I had in 2014 as well.” Trump attacked McConnell on Sunday in his first speech as an ex-president and wondered aloud if he made a mistake supporting the former majority leader’s campaign for a seventh term. “My endorsement of Mitch McConnell at his request… he made a request, he asked for my endorsement — brought him from one point down to 20 points up, and he won his race,” Trump said in a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference in Orlando, Fla.

    Senator Mitch McConnell chuckled Tuesday in response to comments from former President Donald Trump at CPAC. McConnell condemned Trump and said he’s morally responsible for the violent riots at the Capitol on January 6th, but just last week he said he would “absolutely” support Trump if he was the 2024 GOP nominee. But Trump is clearly not happy with McConnell. He attacked him in a blistering statement recently, and over the weekend he tried to claim credit for the Kentucky Republican’s reelection. Back in December Trump attacked McConnell with the same claim that claimed he helped the then-Senate Majority Leader win because of… a tweet and a robocall. McConnell was asked about Trump’s new comments on Tuesday, and chuckled as a reporter said Trump “took a lot of credit for your re-election.” McConnell just snarked in response, “I want to thank him for the 15-point margin I had in 2014 as well.” Have a tip we should know?

    President Donald Trump claimed credit for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s reelection and criticized him in an email sent to Republican members of Congress on Monday evening, according to multiple reports. Trump argued that McConnell was “the first one off the ship” after the Senate leader officially congratulated President-elect Joe Biden on his election win earlier in December, according to Axios. NBC News and Business Insider confirmed the statement. White House staff reportedly sent a graphic to Capitol Hill highlighting polling data in McConnell’s race and claiming Trump’s actions made McConnell rise in the polls. Axios: “Trump got his personal assistant to email GOP lawmakers a PowerPoint slide (below) attacking McConnell for being ‘the first one off the ship,’ and absurdly claiming credit for the senator’s re-election.” pic.twitter.com/Gg8lkwChBx — John Kruzel (@johnkruzel) December 22, 2020 McConnell won his race by nearly 20 points, despite his opponent, Democrat Amy McGrath, spending more than $93 million in her attempt to unseat the Republican.

    Jon Cherry / Getty Images President Donald Trump reportedly went after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in an email sent to GOP lawmakers on Monday that included him trying to take credit for McConnell winning reelection. Per Axios, the White House sent around a slide reading, “Sadly, Mitch forgot! He was the first one off the ship!” McConnell, of course, had been criticized for not acknowledging Joe Biden’s win sooner. The slide then bizarrely tries to claim a link between the president’s public efforts to boost McConnell and McConnell ultimately winning his race in Kentucky. It cites polls (which apparently were not “fake” ones) making the rather bold stretch that McConnell ultimately won reelection because 1) the president tweeted an endorsement of him in June, and 2) the president made a robocall for him in the final week of the campaign. A tweet and a robocall. ‼️The White House is sending out this email to some congressional offices, where Trump appears to be taking credit for boosting Senate Majority Leader McConnell in his race ag. McGrath through endorsements. “Sadly,...

Paula White, the spiritual adviser to President Donald Trump, held a prayer service declaring that angels were being “dispatched” to help the 45th president remain in the White House.  “I hear a sound of victory. The Lord says it is done. For I hear victory, victory, victory!” White proclaimed. “Angels are being dispatched right now.”  Then, things take a bit of a turn.  Evangelist Paula White, chair of the White House evangelical advisory board, says a prayer for President Donald Trump during last May’s National Day of Prayer service in the White House Rose Garden. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images) “Angels have been dispatched from Africa right now,” White says she envisions. “They’re coming here, in the name of Jesus.” She also declares angels were being “dispatched” from South America.  The chairwoman of the White House evangelical advisory board had no mention of how, in a closed-door meeting with U.S. officials in January of 2018, Trump referred to Haiti, El Salvador and a host of African nations as “sh*thole countries.” Sincère thanks to Paula White for her invaluable...

    The pre- and post-debate spin about Wednesday’s clash of vice-presidential candidates from the left was that it’s merely a sideshow. They say the appearance of rhetorical norms is an illusion with Donald Trump at the top of the ticket. But Mike Pence and Kamala Harris did a public service by offering a contrast on issues and values that voters aren’t getting from the media or the presidential candidates. The vice president did as well as he could playing defense on the pandemic, especially with his accurate gibe that Joe Biden’s policy sounds like policy plagiarism. Sen. Harris’s main critique on the virus, as on most other issues, was less about substance than about Mr. Trump’s rhetoric and personal behavior. It’s a powerful point that Mr. Trump reinforces daily. But Mr. Pence is right that on vaccines and testing and other details, the Biden “plan” is mostly Mr. Trump’s.

    The first presidential debate of 2020 was a huge missed opportunity for Donald Trump. Leading up to Tuesday night's first presidential debate, most of the analysis centered around historical precedent. Many analysts, myself included, looked to past debates, like the 1980 Carter-Reagan faceoff, to examine how the first Biden-Trump debate might impact the race. Also discussed in television segments and newspaper articles during the lead-up to Tuesday's debate was the worst day of my tenure as President Barack Obama's campaign manager and probably my political career: October 3, 2012, the first debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney. Within the first 8 minutes of the debate, we knew we had lost.  
    A Democratic presidential candidate has not carried the state of Texas since Jimmy Carter narrowly defeated Gerald Ford in 1976, so why is a reliably red state now the linchpin that could spell electoral demise for President Donald Trump?
    Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore is warning that Democrats seem to be engaging in the same election-losing mistakes they did in 2016, after new polls show President Trump's popularity amongst swing state voters is on the rise.  Back in 2016, Moore was one of a handful of political activists who had predicted that Trump would defeat Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton at the polls.  In his Friday Facebook post, Moore indicated that it was starting to look like Trump could pull off another win and urged people to register to vote.     RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next New Jersey police department sends 18-year-old BLM organizer...
