in 2017/Top Headlines by

Republican senators are bucking President Donald Trump’s calls to revive the health care debate. And Trump just ousted his only top White House aide with deep links to the Republican Party. But the president and his party won’t be calling it quits anytime soon. They remain tightly linked by a force more powerful than politics or personal ties: cash.

RNC’s ground game behind Donald Trump deserves more credit for Florida victory

in 2017 by

Plenty of congratulations are going out to the Donald Trump campaign, which is well-deserved. Others unhappy with the outcome are expressing other sentiments. Several pundits are in the process of analyzing and pronouncing “winners and losers.” In Florida, the lists on both sides are long, but not necessarily complete.

Joe Henderson: RNC Day 2 – starting to get the message

in 2017/Top Headlines by

OK, I think we get the message. Republicans spent the first two days of their convention in Cleveland trying to get one point across: They hate Hillary Clinton. Check that. To them, she is Satan in a pants suit, but without the charm. To break it down, they believe she is a godless, soulless, flesh-eating monster who is responsible for every bad thing that has happened on earth, probably starting at the Garden of Eden.
