in Peter by

Russia issue not yet hurting GOP fundraising or giving Dems advantage The saga regarding Donald Trump — Senior and Junior — and Russia continues with no end in sight. It began in January and now, following the latest “bombshell,” the 2016 Democratic nominee for vice-president, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, is throwing out the word “treason.”

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Florida Congressional Republicans Carlos Curbelo and Brian Mast are once again in the crosshairs of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, this time in new digital ads highlighting the proposed new GOP House health care plan that includes a provision that would exempt members of Congress and their staff from the plan. Curbelo represents Florida’s 26th Congressional District, Mast represents Florida’s 18th District. The two seats are part of the 30 that the DCCC is aiming to win back next year in…

National Dems ask if Ileana Ros-Lehtinen supports new petition to repeal ACA

in 2017/Top Headlines by

No one knows when President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans will make another attempt at repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Some hard-line GOP lawmakers want to force a repeal-only bill back onto the floor, once again putting several House Republicans on the spot. On Friday, Alabama Republican Mo Brooks, part of the House Freedom Caucus, filed a full ACA repeal. However, Brooks says he must wait 30 days until he begins collecting signatures for a discharge petition, POLITICO reports. That’s compelling the…

New DCCC ad attacks Carlos Curbelo, Mario Diaz-Balart over GOP health care bill

in 2017 by

Since the American Health Care Act was pulled last Friday, most members of Congress did not have to vote on the controversial bill. Nevertheless, the legislation did quickly pass through three separate committees on its way to a potential floor vote. And that hasn’t stopped the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) from criticizing Republicans for their support of the AHCA in the committee process. Seizing the universal disdain for the aborted bill, the DCCC is now going after two Miami Republican who…

Mitch Perry Report for 10.27.16 – Marco Rubio and Patrick Murphy battle it one last time

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

So much in the news today to discuss, but let’s start (and end) with a review of last night’s debate between Marco Rubio and Patrick Murphy. If you were scoring at home (congratulations if you were, to paraphrase Keith Olbermann from his ESPN days), you might have had Rubio up by a few points at the end, but like the first debate, it was relatively competitive throughout. Rubio has a lot more experience on the debate stage, which is why Murphy should have debated Pam Keith and…

Mitch Perry Report for 10.25.16 – DCCC ad linking Trump to Jolly goes away, but has the damage been done?

in The Bay and the 'Burg by

Attention political junkies: not every voter pays attention to politics until right before the election, which is why that ad by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee “dramatizing” David Jolly standing with Donald Trump was so egregious. The ad — one of the most controversial of any produced this season in American politics — was immediately denounced by the Jolly campaign, who protested to local television stations to stop airing it. They did not. Nor did his Democratic opponent, Charlie Crist, say anything negative when called to denounce it…

DCCC says David Jolly ‘lied and it backfired’ regarding Donald Trump ad

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee boasted this weekend that David Jolly‘s campaign “lied and it backfired” regarding his camp’s announcement Friday that a local television station had pulled a controversial ad that uses doctored photos of Jolly with Donald Trump. “Jolly’s bizarre strategy to solely object to dramatized pictures in a DCCC ad depicting a potential “President Trump” working with a future “Congressman Jolly” — failed miserably,” the DCCC chortled triumphantly in a statement issued Saturday. It was referring to a statement issued out by the Jolly campaign on…
