Sen. Bob Casey Goes Full Leftist, Rejects Gorsuch

In case there was any doubt that Senator Bob Casey Jr.’s (D-Pa.) transformation into a hard leftist was real, it’s been confirmed by his announcement this past week that he will vote against confirming Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. So why should Pennsylvanians and non-Pennsylvanians care? First, a little history. Casey is the son of Bob Casey Sr., one of the last few truly courageous politicians. Casey Sr. was a Democrat who served two terms as governor of Pennsylvania and was one of the old breed of Pennsylvania Democrats: Catholic, son of a Democrat, supporter of gun rights, and, most

WATCH: New Pro-Trump Ad Touts President’s “Results”

While President Trump may still just be settling into the White House after his surprise victory last November, his supporters are already looking ahead to the next election challenge. Their latest move? A new $1 million TV ad campaign which will target the 10 states Trump won last year where Democratic senators are up for reelection in 2018. The campaign is being funded by the Making America Great organization, with the purpose of persuading at-risk Democrats to support the president’s legislative agenda. According to a spokesperson for Making America Great, the group “will be a conduit to highlight President Trump’s

Will Wisconsin Give the GOP a Senate Supermajority in 2018?

Perhaps the biggest surprise on Election Night last year was Wisconsin. Nobody — well, almost nobody (apologies to The National Pulse’s Steve Wagner who, after all, is a somebody) — expected Donald Trump to win Wisconsin, and even fewer people thought Republican Sen. Ron Johnson could win re-election, yet he did, shocking former Sen. Russ Feingold by more than three percentage points in a race that proved critical in maintaining the GOP Senate majority. Wisconsin will again play a key role in 2018 as Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-Wis.) runs for re-election. As we have covered previously, 2018 presents a very friendly

EXCLUSIVE: Kansas Governor Has Pro-Life Message for GOP

Sam Brownback, governor of Kansas, has a message for Republicans about the social issues: they can help you win elections. On banning late-term abortions and defunding Planned Parenthood, for example, he told me, “These life issues are winners in the political body. The country is pro-life.” Gov. Brownback should know. He and the GOP-controlled Kansas state legislature have passed a total of 17 pro-life bills, and in 2014 despite a poor economy, budget problems, and relentless press attacks, he won re-election for a second term in a tight race, 50 percent to 46 percent. The abortion issue doesn’t just rally

Could Elizabeth Warren Lose in 2018?

I know it’s way too early to talk about 2018, but — come on — have you looked at the Senate map yet? 2018 favors the GOP in a way that few cycles ever have historically. Of the 33 Senate seats up for election in 2018, just eight are currently held by Republicans, while 23 are held by Democrats and two are held by independents who caucus with the Democrats. Furthermore, just two of those Republican seats are truly in danger, while more than a dozen Democrats are at risk. Needless to say, this presents an incredible opportunity for Republicans to make major
