in 2017/Top Headlines by

Donald Trump abruptly resurrected Bill Clinton‘s impeachment on Thursday, adding the former president’s infidelities to the already-rancorous 2016 campaign. Trump warned voters in battleground New Hampshire that a Hillary Clinton victory would bring her husband’s sex scandal back to the White House. It was Trump’s latest effort to bounce back from Monday night’s debate performance, which has been widely panned as lackluster. In contrast, Clinton has delivered a mostly positive message in the days since her debate performance re-energized her…

in 2017 by

Dr. Jill Stein, the 66-year-old Green Party presidential candidate, brought her campaign to Tampa Wednesday night, where she spoke to a packed house in the second floor ballroom of the Cuban Club in Ybor City.

Mitch Perry Report for 9.15.16 — One less #NeverTrump option for president in Florida

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

#NeverTrump conservatives in Florida have one less option to choose for president in November now. Evan McMullin, a 40-year-old former CIA official from Utah, has been proposed as a conservative alternative to Trump.
