Mitch Perry Report for 2.4.16 – The field narrows

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Nashua, N.H. — Good morning from the Extended Stay America motel in Nashua, where it was an absolutely balmy 53 degrees at 5:30 a.m. It’s not, however, expected to get any warmer. No rain in the forecast (I don’t think) after a day that, well, if this were Florida, you’d have been hearing of severe flooding by lunchtime. By I digress. Rand Paul and Rick Santorum quit the race yesterday — er, “suspended” — their campaigns. Whatever. I’m genuinely disappointed…

Donald Trump bashes Ted Cruz as “dishonest” in speech in Milford, N.H.

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Milford, New Hampshire – Because of the sheer ubiquitous cable news coverage he’s enjoyed over the past half-year, there are parts of a Donald Trump speech that are familiar territory, even if their new rants, such as his description about why he boycotted last week’s Fox News debate. The presumptive GOP front-runner was in Milford, New Hampshire on Tuesday night, giving his second speech since being humbled on Monday evening, when he lost out to Ted Cruz in the Iowa caucuses, despite…

Mitch Perry Report for 2.2.16 – Clinton 23 gets delegates, Sanders 21 in New Hampshire

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

We’re on to New Hampshire, but first … Ted Cruz deserves plaudits for grinding out a great victory for himself in Iowa last night, but can he win enough delegates to earn the nomination? I maintain that he can’t and won’t, which makes Marco Rubio‘s strong third-place victory the big story going into the next week. Let’s look at the incredibly close results in the Democratic Primary. First off, Hillary Clinton is being called “the apparent victor” by every media…

Mitch Perry Report for 2.1.16 — Iowa, finally

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Good morning, everyone. While there will definitely be drama in awaiting the returns from Iowa tonight, I will argue right now that if Ted Cruz ekes out a victory, it won’t really mean all that much in the end. That’s a prediction, something I try to stay away from in — at least putting such statements in print (or in cyberspace). However, think about it: Iowa is a state that is designed for a guy like Cruz — heavy with religiously…

Donald Trump holds his own event as GOP rivals debate

in 2017/Top Headlines by

As his rivals made their final case to voters ahead of Iowa’s kickoff caucuses, Donald Trump was headlining a show of his own. Just 3 miles from the site of the final GOP presidential debate before voting begins, Republican front-runner Trump held what amounted to a cross between his typical rally and a fundraising telethon to benefit veterans. Between his usual talking points on issues like the country’s trade imbalance and media camera angles, Trump read out the names of…

Marco Rubio says faith the “single greatest influence in my life”

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Republican presidential hopeful Marco Rubio promised to keep “talking about God” as he campaigned across Iowa Monday, reminding influential evangelical voters of his commitment to Christian values just two weeks before the state’s leadoff caucuses. The Florida senator’s GOP rivals have dismissed him as too moderate at times, but on Monday, he spoke of how Christian conservative values would guide his decisions in the White House, if he is elected. The Florida senator, a Catholic, opened up about religion when…

Rick Scott affirms praise for Donald Trump, declines jabs at Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Hours after Gov. Rick Scott released an op-ed praising the 2016 presidential bid of Donald Trump, Scott took to the Fox News airwaves to chat with “Your World” host Neil Cavuto. Asked whether his attaboy for the New York real estate mogul was meant to defend Trump against recent criticisms, Scott replied he just wants what’s best for his fellow Republicans. “Well, the point is I think Republicans and I think Americans are tired of a president who has taken over our economy with…
