Democratic challenger Alison Lundergan Grimes kept pace with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in fundraising late last year in one of the nation's most closely watched campaigns.
Former GOP congressman Joe Scarborough said Friday the remarks that Sen. Mitch McConnell's campaign manager made about his boss show that their relationship is a "marriage of convenience" aimed at boosting Sen. Rand Paul's bid for the presidency in 2016.
In Washington, Mitch McConnell is the Senate Republicans' floor general and a major power broker. Back home in Kentucky, however, he is possibly the most endangered member of the GOP Senate caucus ahead of next year's midterm elections, as he tries to balance pleasing vociferous right-wing constituents with his role as chief congressional dealmaker.
Calling it "Watergate-style bugging," the re-election campaign of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is now working with the FBI to find out how a recording of private political "war room" conversations was leaked to the liberal magazine Mother Jones.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has hired some tea party credibility. The Kentucky Republican has hired Jesse Benton, who steered the presidential campaign of Texas congressman Ron Paul, to head Mr. McConnell's re-election campaign in 2014.
They're amassing: former Rep. Barry Goldwater Jr. is among those eager to celebrate Rep. Ron Paul at the "We Are the Future" rally, to be staged in Tampa, Fla., just 24 hours before the Republican National Convention rumbles to life.
Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul will hold a free rally for thousands of supporters at the University of South Florida Sun Dome on the day before the Republican National Convention.
Ron Paul's campaign conceded Tuesday he won't win enough delegates to be Republicans' presidential nominee, but says he will continue to try to win supporters to influence the GOP's platform and rules at the August convention.
Rep. Ron Paul has missed 93 percent of all floor votes in Congress this year as he's focused on his presidential bid, even as he's kept one of the lighter campaign schedules of any of the candidates.
Mitt Romney said Tuesday he will eventually release his income-tax returns, but acknowledged he likely pays a lower overall tax rate than many less-wealthy Americans.
As voters head to the polls at the New Hampshire presidential primary, Mitt Romney's rivals blasted his record as a venture capitalist while the Republican front-runner's support in polls eroded further.
Donald Trump's stature within Republican ranks appears to be waning, after most of the party's presidential hopefuls have shot down the billionaire developer's invitation to take part in a "debate" moderated by "The Donald."
Fireworks and accusations follow the 10th presidential debate hosted by CBS News and the National Journal, even though the Republican candidates went for the gravitas and steely polish Saturday night.
Rep. Ron Paul easily won a Republican presidential candidate straw poll Saturday at the conservative Values Voter Summit in Washington, while two of the most popular candidates in the race — Texas Gov. Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — finished near the bottom.
Republican presidential contender Ron Paul, for the second day in a row, criticized Rick Perry's record as a conservative and cast the Texas governor as a wolf in sheep's clothing.
McConnell campaign manager Jesse Benton said the incumbent's fourth-quarter numbers would have been higher, but he canceled fundraising during the partial government shutdown late last year.
"Which further illustrates the enthusiastic support he is gaining every day from people across America who appreciate his conservative leadership and willingness to fight on their behalf," Benton said in a statement.
