Mitch Perry Report for 2.11.16 – Carly and Chris bid adieu to the circus

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina have suspended their presidential campaigns. This reporter had the chance to see the New Jersey governor (yes, that is the day job he’s pretty much blown off for months) a week ago in Keene, N.H. The fun part about that was how intimate it was: It was a small crowd (maybe too small, an indication of how he was going to perform on Tuesday), but other than a few opening remarks, the 90-minute event was all about him…

Carly Fiorina suspends her presidential campaign

in 2017/Top Headlines by

Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina has suspended her presidential campaign, a day after she finished seventh in the GOP presidential pack in New Hampshire, getting a little over 4 percent of the vote. “This campaign was always about citizenship — taking back our country from a political class that only serves the big, the powerful, the wealthy, and the well connected,” the former Hewlett-Packard CEO said in a statement released at 3 p.m. eastern time. “Election after election, the same empty promises are…

Mitch Perry Report for 2.5.16 – “An artful smear”

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Good morning from Nashua, New Hampshire. I have to admit that my first thoughts this morning are not what happened at last night’s debate between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, but will I make it safely to Manchester this morning to see Sanders. Folks, it’s snowing pretty hard in southern New Hampshire this morning (7:10 a.m.). I ran around in a parking lot about an hour ago to get a workout in, but the snowflakes are piling up. This California…

Carly Fiorina calls debate process “broken” after learning she’s shut out of Saturday night forum

in 2017/Top Headlines by

With Rand Paul dropping out of the GOP presidential race, the field is winnowing out. That doesn’t mean that the rest of the 10-person field gets to stand on one debate stage this Saturday night. Although ABC, the debate sponsor, says they haven’t yet announced the lineup of candidates, Carly Fiorina says she has learned she won’t be invited – and she’s not pleased about that. “Our debate process is broken,” the only female Republican candidate writes to Party Chair Reince Priebus…

Marco Rubio reveals his backup plan on The Tonight Show

in 2017 by

Marco Rubio has a backup plan if his presidential hopes don’t pan out, and it doesn’t include life in government. The Florida Republican told late night host Jimmy Fallon he wasn’t considering the vice president spot if he fails to win the Republican nomination. Instead, he has his sights set on another powerful post — the NFL commissioner. “I want to be like commissioner of the NFL, which is more powerful than the president sometime,” he told Fallon during an…

Mitch Perry Report for 1.14.16 — And the winner is?

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

(UPDATE) Shortly after 8:30 a.m., the Oscar nominations will be announced from Hollywood, and yes, I actually give a fig. As an inveterate moviegoer, I still get excited about what the Establishment thinks about the product it puts out every year. Interestingly, while the Oscars are still among the most viewed television broadcasts globally every year, they always seem to drop in the ratings most years. This year, Chris Rock is hosting, but what I’ll be interested to see today is…

Jeb Bush is only candidate NH voters view unfavorably, Monmouth U. poll finds

in 2017/Top Headlines by

For Jeb Bush and supporters, it’s probably wise not to rise or fall on the basis of a single poll. Case in point? New Hampshire. The Bush camp rallied this weekend around a poll that showed him moving up to second place in New Hampshire, getting 11.9 percent support. Flash forward to Monday, where a Monmouth University poll just released has him tied for 7th place, with just 4 percent of the vote. The story in this poll is that Donald Trump is…
