Super PAC Backing Marco Rubio Releases Ads Slamming Chris Christie (VIDEO)

Record Turn-out Predicted For GOP Iowa Caucuses
The Iowa Caucuses are exactly four weeks from today and many GOP strategists are predicting a turnout 10-15 percent higher than the record setting 121,000 votes cast in 2012.

The Iowa Corn Lobby is Following Ted Cruz Around Like a Bunch of Spoiled Children

Donald Trump Claims that He Invented the Idea of a Border Fence
This weekend, Donald Trump told a whopper that made Al Gore’s exaggeration of his role in “creating the Internet” seem trivial by comparison. He claimed, somewhat absurdly, that the entire idea of building a fence along the United States border was his, and that Ted Cruz was copying him. In his typical Trumpian fashion, he relayed this claim in the context of a conversation he | Read More »
