    The Road to Six: Your Help Is Needed

    As Red State readers know, six is the key number in the battle for control of the Senate. In addition to holding all the seats currently held by Republicans, we have to flip six Democrat-held seats. As I wrote earlier this week in a memo to the 168 members of the Republican National Committee, the good news is that we have multiple paths to get | Read More »

    Democrats Have a Losing, Anti-Energy Agenda

    With only a few months until the midterm elections, the issues that matter most to the American people are jobs and the economy. Unfortunately, President Obama and Democrats are committed to energy policies that hurt economic growth and keep more people from finding work. When it comes to energy, the President and Democrats are running in the wrong direction. Instead of working to create jobs | Read More »

    Abolish the IRS

    The IRS has lost the trust of the American people. Targeting conservative groups was unacceptable. Pleading the fifth, misleading lawmakers, covering up wrongdoing, throwing away hard drives, and “losing” sensitive emails is even more egregious. Not only did the IRS abuse their power; they spent years lying about it. So Congress has been forced to investigate, and they could have gotten answers for the American | Read More »

    Fix America Challenge

    Fix America Challenge

    It’s no secret; Washington has some serious problems when it comes to spending and debt. Do you have ideas to fix it? Want to talk about them over lunch with Rand Paul and Paul Ryan? We want to hear from you. The Democrats have shown their true colors and have dragged their feet on producing a serious plan to get our fiscal house in order. | Read More »

    Sorry Mainstream Media, Conservatives Will Have a Greater Say in ’16 Debates

    We all remember the 2012 presidential primary debates, with the liberal media interrogating our candidates on issues that were often not a priority to most Americans. It was a sad situation, a traveling circus, and it was because the mainstream media was in control of every aspect of those debates. They all wanted a chance to go after our candidates, and some of them clearly | Read More »

    Apology from the RNC Director of Rapid Response

    *The below apology from Jahan Wilcox, which was posted by Chairman Priebus, is appreciated by RedState, as is the severe reprimand that we were told was administered. Unfortunately, the willingness of some within the ranks of the party apparatus to demean, and sometimes even work against, conservative candidates has grown this primary cycle. While we are disappointed that this happened within the ranks of Reince’s | Read More »

    EBONY, Black Republicans, and Media Bias

    EBONY, Black Republicans, and Media Bias

    When members of the media show their bias—especially when they refuse even to consider conservative ideas—we have to call them out. Yesterday, a senior editor for EBONY, Jamilah Lemieux, began attacking black Republicans on Twitter. When an RNC staffer, Deputy Press Secretary Raffi Williams, called her out for her bias, she didn’t engage in a civil dialogue. She instead dismissed him as “a white dude.” | Read More »

    An Unhappy Birthday

    This weekend is one of those occasions you’d rather forget. On Sunday, ObamaCare turns four, but the law certainly hasn’t gotten better with age. In fact four years later, the damage is more real than ever. Families who have lost their insurance plans or their doctors are hurting. Working men and women have seen their hours cut. Moms and dads are finding it harder to | Read More »

    Marching for Life

    Next week is the RNC Winter Meeting, and this time around it’s being held in Washington, D.C. As many RedState readers know, that coincides with the annual March for Life. As a proud pro-life Republican, I saw this as a great opportunity for us to participate in this meaningful event. So we adjusted the schedule and pushed back our meetings and official business to allow | Read More »

    The Obama Wedding Tax

    Earlier this month The Atlantic told the story of a New York couple, Nona and Aaron, considering divorce. What was the couple’s reason for ending their marriage? ObamaCare. Among the countless flaws and absurdities in the president’s signature law is this: it contains a wedding tax. Because of the way ObamaCare subsidizes health insurance, many couples can save money on insurance by not getting married—or | Read More »
