Libertarian president nominee Gary Johnson said Wednesday the second presidential debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney was like watching "dueling Phil Donahue acts," and that the showdown underscored that both men are "fundamentally big-government guys."
After a question during Tuesday night's town hall about the level of security at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that led to the deaths of four Americans, Mitt Romney said President Obama failed to call the assault a terrorist attack until much later.
Mitt Romney has occasionally had an awkward way of phrasing things, and Tuesday's debate produced another gem for the Internet when he talked about having brought "binders full of women" to his job as Massachusetts governor.
The official car of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia got a parking ticket in Philadelphia on Monday while the justice was giving a talk about his latest book.
Mitt Romney has opened up a 4-point lead among likely voters, 50 percent to 46 percent, in figures released Tuesday by Gallup ahead of the evening's presidential debate, where the Republican will look to continue the momentum that has him surging past President Obama in recent polls.
Bain Capital, Mitt Romney's former firm, was the top employer among donors to the National Republican Congressional Committee in September, underscoring the extent to which Mr. Romney's associates in the financial sector are financing not just his presidential bid, but the gamut of Republican activities.
Rep. Pete King, who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, gives Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton credit for stepping up to take "full responsibility" for the attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Libya, but he would be more impressed if President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden would also place the onus on themselves.
President Obama has long enjoyed strong support from young Americans, and it turns out that even the ones who are too young to vote are in his corner.
The Massachusetts Senate race is living up to its massive fundraising predictions, with incumbent Republican Sen. Scott Brown and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren raking in a combined $19.5 million from July to September.
Wisconsin Democratic Senate candidate Tammy Baldwin holds a fundraising edge over Republican opponent Tommy Thompson going into the final three weeks of their competitive race, according to numbers released this week by both campaigns.
The first Colorado newspaper endorsements of the 2012 presidential race are trickling in, and so far the results favor Mitt Romney.
U.S. Rep. Peter T. King, New York Republican and Chairman of the House's Homeland Security Committee, said Tuesday that al Qaeda is a greater threat now than it was before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Ross Perot, the businessman who mounted the last major challenge to the two-party political system, said Tuesday he is backing Mitt Romney for president this year.
According to first lady Michelle Obama, her husband leaves his work at the office — to the extent that he can — in order to make sure that she and her two daughters are spared any strains of the job of commander-in-chief.
Though Republican Mitt Romney has at times positioned himself as a Washington outsider, 42 federal lobbyists raised a total of $9 million for his campaign over the past three months, disclosures showed Tuesday.
By returning to Christian roots, the nation can achieve greatness once again
