In another sign that incumbent Republicans in New Jersey are facing trouble in the November midterm elections, a Republican super PAC has begun pouring money into their campaigns.  The Congressional Leadership Fund, which is closely associated with Speaker Paul Ryan, is running attack ads against Democrat Andy Kim, who has pulled even with Republican Tom MacArthur in New Jersey's 3rd Congressional District.  "What's significant here is the Republicans have to spend money from a super PAC on a race that should have been not even competitive in the first place," said Ben Dworkin, director of the Rowan Institute...

President Trump dragged Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach across the finish line in the recent Republican primary for governor. It remains to be seen whether this is merely a Pyrrhic victory or an indication that Trump's nationalist twist on conservatism will survive and thrive beyond his presidency. Trump famously beat 16 other candidates to win the Republican presidential nomination and then went on to win the White House. Many of his imitators, lacking his celebrity and media savvy, have fared markedly less well. A few, like perennial Paul Ryan challenger Paul Nehlen, who went down to defeat... [Read More]

Washington Two House Republican leaders are backing President Donald Trump's proposed Space Force, but key Republicans in the Senate aren't sold on the idea, setting up a debate over establishing and paying for a new branch of the military. Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California said the proposal is a "smart way" to address growing investments by China and others in space. "We'd support that," McCarthy said in a brief interview in California. GOP Whip Rep. Steve Scalise, the No. 3 House Republican, also backs Trump's plan, an aide said Thursday. McCarthy and Scalise are vying to replace House... [Read More]

This appeared in Friday's Washington Post. - - - When President Donald Trump last month threatened to punish one of his critics, former CIA director John Brennan, by taking away his security clearance, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., dismissed the threat with a wry smile. Mere "trolling," he said, as if to suggest: Boys will be boys. In fact, even as bluster, Trump's words would not have been acceptable. But now the president has acted on them, stripping a career intelligence officer of his access to classified material, with no legitimate cause. [Read More]

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) (YouTube) (CNSNews.com) -- As the mid-term elections approach, it is interesting to note that Congress' approval rating is at 17%, according to the latest Gallup survey. In the poll, Gallup asked, "Do you approve or disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job?" For the 1,024 adults polled, only 17% approved of Congress' job performance.  "Congressional approval has been relatively stable since January," said Gallup, "fluctuating between 15% and 20% during that time." U.S. Capitol in... [Read More]
