House Majority Leader Eric Cantor Loses To Tea Party Candidate Dave Brat In Upset

In case you haven′t heard by now, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost to Tea Party challenger Dave Brat in yesterday′s GOP primary election. Virginia was just one of five states which held primary elections yesterday, but the results of this campaign certainly has national significance. Despite being outspent by Cantor 5-to-1, plus having the whole weight of the Republican Establishment against him, economist Dave Brat defeated Eric Cantor soundly by more than 10 points. The 55-44 win in the 7th Congressional District, which includes Richmond, had a high turn out rate. Many pundits are speculating that the reason for Eric Cantor to lose was due to the immigration reform issue. That Dave Brat ran a fear campaign, based on Cantor allegedly being in favor of amnesty for illegal immigrants. But was that the case? Was it the only reason?

McConnell Beats Bevin in Busy Primary Election Results

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell easily defeated Matt Bevin in the Republican U.S. Senate primary election results in last night. Along with Kentucky, five other states – Ohio, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Oregon and Arkansas – also held primary elections. In addition to the McConnell-Bevin race, another campaign showdown got significant national attention, that being the GOP Senate race in Oregon. Dr. Monica Wehby, an early critic of the Affordable Care Act, beat the four other challengers in her bid to be the Republican U.S. Senate candidate this November, despite some dirt laundry being aired by ex-husbands. Meanwhile, in Pennsylvania, Chelsea Clinton′s mother-in-law, Marjorie Margolies, lost her campaign to rejoin the House of Representatives even though both Bill and Hillary Clinton campaigned heavily for her.

Rove Super PAC Raises $5 Million in One Month

Watch out, Liberals! IRS beware! The Karl Rove Super PAC, American Crossroads GPS, or whatever they call themselves, has raised over $5 million dollars in just one month. In 2013, they raised $5.5 million in three months time. So apparently, all is forgiven from Conservatives who were misled by Rove in 2012. I guess Karl doesn′t need to bother Mitt Romney for the $300 million anymore as seen in the old SNL skit.

Jeb Bush: Illegal Immigration Often ‘An Act of Love’

Speaking this weekend at the 25th anniversary of his father′s presidency with Shannon Bream of Fox News, Jeb Bush said that illegal immigration is ″often an act of love.″ That people who break the law by entering the United States are driven to do so to better their families. Jeb Bush is considering a run for the White House in 2016 and said that he will decide by the end of the year whether or not to begin campaigning. Jeb is viewed by many in the Republican Party as a potential candidate who may have the ′right stuff′ to win a general election. Practically every voice in the Mainstream Media, from the Washington Post to MSNBC would agree. But will Jeb Bush′s stance on illegal immigration, Common Core and other issues past the mustard with GOP primary voters?

Rand Paul Wins CPAC 2014 Straw Poll, Sarah Palin Rocks House (Video)

The results are in from the CPAC 2014 straw poll and Rand Paul walked away with 1st Place, getting 31% of some 2,459 ballots. Following him was fellow ′Wacko Bird′, Ted Cruz with 11% and Dr. Ben Carson with 9%. Chris Christie wound up with only 8% with Scott Walker and Rick Santorum tied at 7%. Marco Rubio had only 6%, perhaps a result of when Ann Coulter slams the GOP on the immigration issue. Meanwhile, Sarah Palin delivered the keynote address at the end of CPAC 2014, rocking the house with her attacks on Barack Obama, Democrats, and the Liberal news media.

Ted Cruz, Chris Christie Open CPAC 2014

CPAC 2014 opened yesterday with speakers like Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal, Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio and even Donald Trump. The Conservative Political Action Conference is being held this weekend at National Harbor, Maryland and ends on Saturday with its famous straw poll for presidential contenders for 2016. Ted Cruz was the first major speaker who fired up the audience with plenty of red meat and raw principles. Chris Christie spoke later and did receive a standing ovation at the end of his speech, but got nowhere the same enthusiastic response as Cruz did. Bobby Jindal had, perhaps, the best line of the day, apologizing to Jimmy Carter as now Barack Obama is the new, worst president in United States history. The line was so good, even Donald Trump repeated it.

Texas Primary Election Results 2014

The 2014 Texas primary election results are in and as expected, Greg Abbott will face Wendy Davis in the November gubernatorial race as Davis defeated her other Democrat opponents. Meanwhile, Republican Senator John Cornyn beat Rep. Steve Stockman as Cornyn fights to keep his seat in the U.S. Senate. His Democrat opponent remains unclear as there were five and so far none appear to have a sufficient majority. So there will most likely be a special run-off election on May 27. The Bush dynasty won last night with George P. Bush, son of Jeb Bush, defeating businessman David Watts fto be the Republican nominee for Texas State Land Commissioner. He′ll be facing the Democrat John Cook, former mayor of El Paso. Another famous name, Kinky Friedman, won his nomination run and will face Democrat Jim Hogan for state agriculture commissioner.

Bipartisan Two-Year Budget Deal, Compromise or Compost?

A bipartisan, two-year budget deal was made public yesterday from our hard working bozos in Congress. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) have been leading the negotiations and have come up with a compromise bill to fund the federal government. The bill does sidetrack some of the sequestration cuts, especially for the military, but still manages to reduce spending by some $85 Billion dollars over the two years. Should the legislation pass both wings of Congress, it will mean that we will be spared some of the politics until well after the 2014 mid-term elections. Some in the Tea Party caucus are already denouncing the bill, but the real question will be if Harry Reid and Barack Obama will support it? If the bill passes and becomes law, then Reid and Obama will have little to trash Republicans about for the next year while the GOP beats them over the head with the Obamacare failures.
