    Today RNC Votes For Fair Debates

    Last week I sent letters to NBC and CNN informing them that if they did not abandon plans to run pro-Hillary productions ahead of her expected presidential campaign, the RNC would vote to exclude the networks from Republican presidential primary debates in the 2016 cycle. Today we will vote. Now is the time to call out media bias and to ensure fair debates for our | Read More »

    The RNC: In Communities and There to Stay

    Back in January, I shared with RedState my vision for the RNC’s field operation and some of the lessons we had learned from the 2012 election: As a party, we must recognize that we live in an era of permanent politics. We must stop living nominee-to-nominee, campaign to campaign. As we saw this election, our opponent benefited from a multi-year head-start. Now is the time | Read More »

    CNN and NBC Must #DumptheDocs

    The liberal media is on notice: If you’re in the business of spending millions to promote Hillary Clinton, you will not take part in Republicans’ primary debates in the 2016 presidential election. On Monday, I sent letters to NBC and CNN informing them that the RNC will not sanction any primary debates they sponsor if they do not cancel their plans to promote Hillary Clinton. | Read More »

    Embassy Sweets: Obama Rewards Mega-Donors With Ambassadorships

    Last week, President Obama announced his nomination of Caroline Kennedy to be U.S. ambassador to Japan. Upon hearing the news, you might have found yourself wondering, “Does Caroline Kennedy speak Japanese?” Or “When did she become an expert in U.S.-Japanese relations?” The truth is she doesn’t speak Japanese and she has no expertise in Asian politics. That’s not to criticize the ambassador-to-be. She’s just part | Read More »

    A Verdict Doesn’t End the Gosnell Story

    The horrors that unfolded in the clinic of Dr. Kermit Gosnell have rightly shocked and appalled the nation. Such were the atrocities committed in his office that even abortion advocates have recoiled in horror. And today, a Philadelphia jury finally brought Dr. Gosnell to justice, finding him guilty of first degree murder. This monstrous individual–to call him a doctor is no longer fitting–got what he | Read More »

    Keep Shouting: “Taxed Enough Already”

    It’s Tax Day, and across the country as hardworking Americans surrender a chunk of their paychecks to the federal government, many are also standing up to give the government a piece of their minds. In Washington, D.C., in state capitals, in big cities and small towns, Tax Day Tea Party rallies are sounding a refrain that we must keep shouting: “Taxed Enough Already.” That cry | Read More »

    Media Covers up Democrat-Backed Planned Parenthood’s Support for Infanticide

    For almost as long as there have been two parties, there have been accusations of mainstream media bias. Conservatives know it’s real. Liberals insist it’s imagined. Bias is evident not only in how events are covered but also in what is covered—and more importantly what is not covered. Consider two events from last week. First, in North Dakota the governor signed into law bills that | Read More »

    Renew, Grow, Win

    Today the Republican National Committee is gathered in Charlotte, North Carolina, where we are setting the party’s course for the next two years and beyond. Our efforts are focused on three main goals: renewing our party, growing our ranks, and winning more elections. There is one clear, overriding lesson from November: we didn’t have enough voters. So, we have to find more supporters. We have | Read More »

    Biden’s Right: Under Obama, Middle Class Has Been Buried

    The American middle class cannot afford four more years like the last four. Don’t take my word for it. Ask Vice President Joe Biden. At a Tuesday campaign rally, he offered a remarkably candid assessment of the Obama presidency: “the middle class…has been buried in the last four years.” Finally, Joe Biden’s making some sense. As every family struggling to make ends meet knows all | Read More »

Here’s how: This coming weekend is Super Saturday, where volunteers across the country will be mobilizing to get the word | Read More »
