Clinton Supporters Are Recycling These 3 Failed Attacks on Trump

Now that Donald Trump is the presumptive GOP nominee, an onslaught of negative ads are, undoubtedly, on the horizon. Trump is, by now, no stranger to negative campaigning, having already faced numerous attacks from his former Republican primary rivals, as well as high profile GOP leaders like Mitt Romney. Now it’s Democrats’ turn. Politico reports that a pro-Hillary Clinton super PAC, Priorities USA Action, will start running anti-Trump messages this week: The three central tenets of the message will be that the real estate investor is a divisive character, that he’s too dangerous to vote for, and that he’s a

Marco Rubio Just Went Nuts on Twitter…

Wow. Marco Rubio is kind of awesome. Last night, the former presidential candidate got on Twitter and unleashed sarcastic fury on the mainstream media. First, he criticized two Washington Post stories that used anonymous sources: Funny to read about unnamed “people close” to me who claim to know my thinking on future plans.They just make it up. — Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) May 17, 2016 Unnamed sources “close to” often just people who want to sound like they are in the know. And reporters desperate for content just accept it — Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) May 17, 2016 Flashback to another

Campaign Leak: Did a Cruz-Rubio Ticket Nearly Happen?

It’s a time-honored tradition. Candidate runs for president. Candidate loses. Candidate’s campaign staff blames everyone and everything in an anonymous tell-all piece to the media. It happens every cycle — should’a, would’a, could’a. But this piece at CNN is still worth a read. Apparently there was a real push to put Marco Rubio on Ted Cruz’s ticket prior to the March 15th primary in Florida. Jake Tapper reports at CNN: Top officials of the Cruz campaign are convinced there is one specific step that could have stopped Trump — and they blame Sen. Marco Rubio for not taking that step. In

Could Marco Rubio Be Trump’s VP?

Ted Cruz’s announcement last week of his pick for Vice President, Carly Fiorina, in conjunction with Trump’s likely win in Indiana this evening, will undoubtedly spur new talk of potential VP picks for Donald Trump. Enter Marco Rubio, who has already been mentioned by Trump confidante Roger Stone as a potential pick for Trump’s VP. Rubio would be a great water-under-the-bridge candidate for Trump in terms of uniting his coalition with the GOP establishment. Trump himself has gone on record saying that he wants a VP with political experience in order to help him push his agenda in congress: “I do want somebody

Barone Agrees: Trump Isn’t the Presumptive Nominee . . . Yet

Michael Barone has a column on today where he points out the steep hill that Donald Trump still must climb to win the nomination outright. We both agreed about the similarities with the Northeastern states, but he pointed out something that I missed — that turn out in these heavily blue states was just around 10 percent — which Barone points out is “lower than any other state besides Louisiana”: But turnout in these primaries hovered around just 10 percent of eligible voters, lower than in any other state but Louisiana. That’s partly because registered Republicans are scarce on

Dear Donald: Want to Win? Leave the GOP Abortion Platform Alone

The number one rule in politics should be: “The first person to mention rape loses.” We saw this play out in Missouri back in 2012, where Todd Akin blew a layup U.S. Senate race. And if Donald Trump has his way, we will see the same thing blow up Republicans’ chances at the White House in 2016. Donald Trump recently called on the GOP to take the contradictory position of believing that abortion — the killing of an unborn child — is wrong, unless that child’s father was a criminal, which would somehow make abortion acceptable. This is, of course,

Is This the Beginning of a Cruz-Rubio Bromance?

Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio may not have gotten along so well back when they were both vying for the GOP nomination. However, since Rubio suspended his campaign last month, the public relationship between the two has drastically improved. And this week, the good vibes hit an all-time high. First, during an interview on Tuesday with Mark Levin, Rubio echoed remarks he made last month, praising Cruz for being the only candidate actively campaigning who “fits that criteria” of being a truly conservative option for Republicans. And while the Senator from Florida was careful the next day to assure reporters

Even After Ending Campaign, Rubio Still Working to Stop Trump

Sen. Marco Rubio may have suspended his campaign over three weeks ago, but he has not given up the fight to defeat Donald Trump just yet. In addition to calling Ted Cruz “the only conservative left in the race” in a thank you call to supporters, offering Cruz implicit support if not an explicit endorsement, Rubio has also been taking other quiet steps to halt Trump’s march to the nomination. Last week, RedState reported that Rubio filed paperwork to have his name removed from the California primary ballot — a move which could improve Cruz’s chances of defeating Trump in
