Supporters of President Obama refused Thursday to pull a TV ad suggesting that Republican Mitt Romney caused a woman to die from cancer, a commercial that is raising questions about suspected coordination between the Obama campaign and an advocacy group founded by a former White House staffer.
When Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania endorsed moderate Arlen Specter over conservative Pat Toomey in the state's GOP Senate primary in 2004, the head of the conservative Club for Growth predicted "our members won't forget that for a very long time."
Pennsylvania Republicans who just last fall were celebrating a slew of congressional and state election triumphs have yet to put up a major challenger against first-term Democratic Sen. Robert P. Casey Jr.
As Arlen Specter leaves the Senate after 30 years, the onetime corruption-busting Philadelphia prosecutor and architect of the "single-bullet theory" of the John F. Kennedy assassination says he wouldn't change a thing about his zig-zag-zig political path.
One of the most important lessons of political history is that the cover-up is usually worse than the crime. President Obama ought to take note of this as he heads into the next two years of divided government and before he finds his administration mired in unnecessary legal battles.
Republicans held all of their Senate seats left open by retirements and picked off several seats held by Democrats to capture at least six seats in the midterm election, giving them a louder voice in the legislative chamber most likely to shape President Obama's agenda for the next two years.
On Tuesday there's a good chance "Mickey Mouse" will help bolster the vote count of Pennsylvania Senate candidate Joe Sestak and other Democratic hopefuls across the country.
The White House is disputing speculation that President Obama is avoiding an Indian temple so he won't have to wear a head covering that could fan misconceptions he's a Muslim.
Democrat Joe Sestak's cheeky TV ad about dog poop has tails and tongues wagging in the fiercely contested Senate race in Pennsylvania.
It's official: A week before the midterm elections, odds are that Republicans will win control of the House but Democrats will keep control of the Senate, according to the overseas bookmakers taking bets on this sort of thing.
Two weeks out from Election Day, Republican Pat Toomey appears poised to lead a Republican surge in Pennsylvania in a Senate race that will test just how deeply the state's "blue" roots run.
With unemployment stuck above 9 percent, Democrats have increasingly seized on outsourcing of U.S. jobs as a campaign issue, arguing the GOP's policies have encouraged companies to shift work overseas.
The U.S. Justice Department said Wednesday that FBI agents acted properly when they fatally shot a Detroit Muslim cleric who brandished a gun and fired at them as they tried to arrest him last year.
During the worst of the economic crisis, the nation's most powerful business lobby pleaded with Congress to prop up financial institutions and stimulate the economy with hundreds of billions of dollars in borrowed money.
Patty Murray was stuck. Down in the polls for months and facing a well-known Republican challenger, the three-term Democrat was finding a difficult market for her hard-working-senator sales pitch.
In an email, he said he is "very interested" in returning to public service, but would not discuss his plans for 2014.
Like Mr. Paul, Mr. Sestak said his campaign was a strike against career politicians who are only trying to protect their jobs.
