Don’t Bury Cruz Just Yet

by Terry Schilling

“Et tu, Schweppe?” A Shakespeare you may be, but a Michael Barone not so much. Without a doubt, Donald Trump had a stellar Tuesday night and drew closer to the nomination. But don’t get out the “Make America Great Again!” party horns just yet. Trump is still almost 281 delegates away from securing the nomination and […]

The roller coaster that is the Republican presidential race this year shows little sign of stopping before July’s nominating convention in Cleveland. None of the three remaining candidates has a definitive path to securing the 1,237 delegates needed to win on the first ballot. A contested convention seems increasingly likely.

Farewell Carly and Thank You

by Maggie Gallagher

Carly Fiorina just announced this afternoon that she will be suspending her campaign: [facebook url=”https://www.facebook.com/CarlyFiorina/posts/10157165012225206″] Fiorina is not going to be president this time. But she earned the gratitude of millions of conservative women for her strength, her grace under pressure, her dignified stand against Trump’s bully tactics, her intelligence, and her principles. That goes […]


I want to take a look at each of the candidates in the Republican presidential field following Donald Trump’s rout in the First in the Nation primary state of New Hampshire. In a nutshell, I believe the race effectively comes down to a Donald Trump vs. Ted Cruz race. Cruz moving forward may be the […]


Now that Iowa caucus-goers have spoken, lost in the discussion of Donald Trump’s underperformance, Ted Cruz’s ground game and Marco Rubio’s surge is an acknowledgement of one issue that separated the top Iowa finishers from (as Trump would say) the “losers.” That issue is Common Core. Cruz and Rubio have long been on record as […]


Wow. It’s already here. The Iowa Caucus is tomorrow. Here’s a candidate-by-candidate review of what could happen, what should happen, and what will happen after the votes are tallied: Donald Trump Best-case scenario: A strong 1st place finish (35 percent+) Worst-case scenario: Losing to Ted Cruz and finishing second. Trump currently leads the polls in […]
