Speaker John Boehner said the Republican Party ought to openly support gay candidates — a blunt statement that's sure to ratchet up tensions among traditional conservatives who see the GOP as straying from core principles and wading into political territories held by Democrats.
The National Republican Congressional Committee has gone back to basics and teamed up with top aides to help school GOP members facing election challenge on a key campaign skill: How to talk to women.
Conservatives are sometimes their own worst enemy. A group of Capitol Hill aides who worked for Jim DeMint when he was a senator from South Carolina have set up a political action committee, the Senate Conservatives Fund, to cleanse Congress of whom they consider squishy Republicans. It's a worthwhile endeavor, except when the "squishes" turn out to be conservatives.
According to a blog post by the National Republican Congressional Committee, zero people showed up for an Organizing for Action (OFA) climate change rally today in Washington, D.C., and all mentions of the event have been scrubbed.
Mark Sanford's plea for forgiveness succeeded with South Carolina voters on Tuesday, and now his Republican colleagues will have to decide whether they, too, can forgive him.
With Republican candidate Mark Sanford surging ahead in Tuesday's special congressional election in South Carolina, the party is increasingly hopeful it can avoid an embarrassing defeat in a district that analysts said it should have been able to hold easily.
After giving Mark Sanford the cold shoulder for months, the Republican establishment slowly is warming to the former governor's campaign for South Carolina's open House seat, with several key Republicans weighing in with endorsements in recent days.
Ron Paul, the former representative for Texas, endorsed former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford for his congressional race.
Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford said Wednesday he visited his ex-wife's home while she was out of town because he didn't want his 14-year-old son to watch the Super Bowl alone — a visit that she says violated their divorce settlement.
"America: Taking it back starts now" heralds the newly reinvented National Republican Congressional Committee website, which jolted to life Saturday and is an aggressive poke at a bullying Democratic presence that now commands much voter attention online.
When the history of crony capitalism is written, Elon Musk will deserve a chapter to himself. Mr. Musk began his career as a risk-taker and entrepreneur, co-founding the innovative online-payment system PayPal. His latest ventures depend on taxpayers, K Street lobbyists and campaign contributions.
Republicans retained control of the House in Tuesday's elections, according to television network projections that showed Democrats falling short of the 25 seats they needed to win to take back the chamber.
With Election Day a little more than a month away, both parties are performing painful triage operations in the battle to control the House, pulling resources from candidates with no chance of winning — or at least too small to be worth the effort — in order to concentrate money on more promising races.
New York state's congressional elections are testing the staying power of Republicans who rode a tea party wave to a House majority two years ago — as well as the resilience of Democrats striving to regain control.
A top attorney for President Obama's campaign and the Democratic National Committee predicted Wednesday that new voter-identification laws passed in a number of states will have a minimal impact on turnout in the fall elections, saying that Democrats have made "significant progress" in blunting their effects and that he thinks the country will likely avoid electoral "Armageddon."
