THE POLITICO MAGAZINE has published an extensive report on the efforts of GOP operatives and “scoop factories” like the Washington Free Beacon to answer the “most pressing question” leading up to 2016 presidential race: How to back Hillary Clinton into a corner.
The Free Beacon’s team on analysts have been working on this project for while, and in light of the THE POLITICO story, we are finally ready to publish our preliminary findings. To back Hillary Clinton into a corner, simply consult the following charts.
Greg Orman, the “independent” candidate challenging Republican Senator Pat Roberts in Kansas, doesn’t think Kansas voters should know which party he’ll caucus with if he wins.
But judging by the groups spending money to elect him, it seems pretty clear where his loyalties will lie. Orman has been endorsed by the AFL-CIO, and is backed by Democratic super donors such as hedge fund billionaire Jim Simons.
President Obama may not be on the ballot this year, but he is having an election-inspired existential crisis. Democrats want nothing to do with him, and his failed leadership is directly to blame for rocket explosions.
The Washington Post reports that watching Democrats across the country try to dissociate themselves from the president has hurt Obama’s feelings:
Unlike John Fogerty, Tilden Hagan is a Senator’s son, and, shockingly, things have worked out pretty well for him. By sheer coincidence, after his mom voted for the 2009 stimulus package, a company Tilden Hagan co-owned with his future brother-in-law was awarded a taxpayer-funded contract to install solar panels. The company overseeing the project, JDC Manufacturing, was, by sheer coincidence, owned by Tilden’s dad. The deal appears to have violated JDC’s own conflict-of-interest policy. Oh well.
A Super PAC run by former aides to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) is running a radio ad in North Carolina that accuses GOP Senate candidate Thom Tillis of helping to “cause the shooting death of Trayvon Martin,” the Florida teenager who was killed under controversial circumstances in early 2012.
President Obama is not running for reelection this year, but his presidency is “on the line,” warns a Democratic Party flyer making its way around Georgia.
Hillary Clinton is a grandmother, in case you hadn’t heard, and one of the benefits of having a new grandchild is it provides an easy hook for a political stump speech. Hillary Clinton has already mastered this process, as you can see is this video from a campaign rally for Kay Hagan in North Carolina.
In addition to funding hospitals and scholarships for minority students, the Koch brothers are trying to undermine the America Dream by providing scholarships and training to public defenders to ensure that all Americans are adequately protected by the right to counsel.
CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Shortly before Kay Hagan took the stage at the Charlotte Convention Center on Saturday, the loudspeakers blared Bruce Springsteen’s aptly titled Democratic Party theme song “We Take Care of Our Own.”
Shortly before Hillary Clinton took the stage Saturday at a campaign event for Kay Hagan, a woman decked out in Hillary swag traversed the crowd informing attendees that the professional public speaker was about to have a birthday. (Clinton turned 67 on Sunday.) The plan was for everyone to sing Happy Birthday after Hagan introduced her guest of honor. It didn’t really work out, however, because Hillary just kept talking, and enough people in the crowd reflexively cheered after every sentence to drown out the singing.
