Seeking to dent Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential aspirations and to combat the accusation that the GOP is waging a war on women, Sen. Rand Paul is waging a war on Bubba.
Long before there was a Sen. Ted Cruz filibustering Obamacare on the Senate floor or a Sen. Rand Paul demanding answers on government drone policy, Sen. Jeff Sessions was holding the Senate floor for hours on end, espousing classic tea party stances against higher spending and expanding presidential powers.
Sen. Marco Rubio began 2013 as the talk of the town, riding high in 2016 presidential polls and spearheading Republican efforts to woo the Hispanic voting bloc that helped power President Obama to a second term.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie cruised to re-election Tuesday, giving Republicans a bright spot in an off-year election, while all eyes turned to Old Dominion.
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.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie cruised to re-election Tuesday, giving Republicans a bright spot in an off-year election and demonstrating how the GOP can win in blue states and potentially positioning himself as a counterweight to the tea party in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries.
Agunfighter always shoots at the man he fears most. So the guns of the left have been aimed at Ted Cruz, the charismatic senator from Texas who's looking at the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.
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.
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.
The Republican National Committee's postelection "autopsy" report issued Monday suggests that comprehensive immigration reform could improve the party's sagging fortunes with Hispanic voters.
House Speaker John A. Boehner's new "Senate first" strategy could put red state Democrats — especially those facing potentially tough re-election battles in 2014 — in a tough spot: Reject the White House's liberal second-term agenda and run afoul of party leaders, or back the president and alienate voters back home.
For those who can't wait until the 2012 presidential election is finally over on Wednesday: not so fast.
Far from losing control of the Senate, the latest polling suggests Democrats could actually expand their majority on Tuesday — a stunning turnaround for a party that entered this cycle playing defense across the board.
Mitt Romney crossed a major threshold this week, moving above 50 percent in his favorability rating, according to the Real Clear Politics average of polls — and for the first time in the campaign he leads President Obama on that measure.
One Republican campaign ad describes the "buyer's remorse" some voters feel about President Barack Obama. Another ad features a woman saying she had supported Obama because "he spoke so beautifully," but he's failed to deliver on his promises. Still another ad woos Obama supporters with a direct but gentle prod: "It's OK to make a change."
Mike McKenna, a Republican Party strategist, said Mr. Boehner's opponents should be careful what they wish for.
"In about two years, folks on the right are going to be complaining about whoever the next speaker is and remembering Boehner fondly," Mr. McKenna said. "They are angry at the world. For some reason, they have focused some of this anger at Boehner. I have no clue why."
