ANALYSIS: A year after President Obama rode to re-election accusing Republicans of a war on women, the governor's races in New Jersey and Virginia offered the GOP two options for how to strike back.
Sen. Ted Cruz has released his birth certificate, visited the states that traditionally open the Republican presidential race and cemented himself as one of the few no-holds-barred foes of Obamacare.
The fight over the Obama administration's use of drones exposed deepening divisions within Republican ranks between the libertarian-leaning and defense-minded wings of the party over national security.
After the State of the Union address Tuesday night, Sen. Marco Rubio steps before the cameras to deliver one of the Republican responses — and the stakes couldn't be higher for the high-profile young senator.
Some new senators make a point of keeping their heads down and their media profiles low as they get the lay of the land on Capitol Hill.
"One of the key planks in the Democrats' 'win at all costs' playbook is the 'war on women' maneuver," said Ford O'Connell, a Republican strategist.
"Behind the scenes, Cruz is in the process of positioning himself as a viable 2016 presidential contender, and he wants to crush any lingering doubts about his citizenship and eligibility for the White House among the GOP primary faithful," said Ford O'Connell, a Republican strategist.
