Sen. Deb Fischer (R-Neb.) can walk very fast when she doesn’t want to answer a question about Donald Trump.
Donald Trump reduced Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to little more than a female human vessel Tuesday night, saying her gender is the only thing she’s got going for her in her campaign.
“The only card she has is the women’s card,” Trump said during a victory speechafter sweeping in five state’s primaries. “She’s got nothing else going on. Frankly, if...Read more
Bernie’s path forward just got a lot harder.Hillary Clinton dominated Tuesday’s Democratic presidential primaries, dealing another significant blow to Bernie Sanders’ chances of securing the party’s nomination.
Ahead of Tuesday’s primaries, Clinton had 1,428 pledged delegates, while Sanders had 1,153. (Winning the nomination requires 2,382 delegates, including unpledged superdelegates.) In order to get on track to overtake Clinton in the delegate race, Sanders needed to win big in Tuesday’s contests. That didn’t happen.

In a presentation at the RNC's spring meeting, the heads of the Our Principles PAC told party leaders to fight the billionaire's bid for the nomination.

Hillary Clinton may very well have locked up the Democratic nomination at Thursday night’s debate in Brooklyn.
The main theme that ran throughout each of Clinton’s pointed answers was “it’s easy to diagnose the problem.

Even some GOP senators are hoping for more votes.
Something rare happened Monday. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) let a judicial nominee get a vote: Waverly Crenshaw, a Tennessee district court nominee.
It’s been two months since Republicans confirmed a judge. If anybody should have been confirmed by now, it’s Crenshaw. Nobody opposed him — he was confirmed 92 to 0. Both of his GOP senators strongly supported him. The court seat he’s filling has become so...Read more
Many of these women have been told their whole lives that they’re not as qualified as men. When talking to women rooting for Hillary Clinton, one reason comes up over and over again about why they stick by her: She is, simply, the most qualified person to be president.
“She’s the most highly qualified candidate of the Republicans and the Democrats. She has the experience,” New Hampshire state Rep. Mary Heath (D) said during a canvassing...Read more
The GOP front-runner has information that could damage the cable news network if it were to be made public.
When Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump launched a crusade against Fox News and its star anchor, Megyn Kelly, last summer, many political insiders saw the move as the beginning of the end of Trump’s upstart campaign.
Why would anyone seeking the Republican presidential nomination attack a network that reaches huge swaths of the Republican primary electorate?
One answer is that Trump...Read more
