Koch brothers not going to Republican convention

Koch brothers not going to GOP conventionBillionaire and conservative/libertarian Charles Koch said the influential conservative network he helped found will not attend the potentially contested Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

During an ABC News interview, Koch said Freedom Partners will not be attending the convention, to be held July 18-21 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.


Cruz and Kasich join forces to combat Donald Trump

Cruz and KasichRepublican party presidential candidates Ted Cruz and John Kasich have agreed to coordinate in a last-ditch effort to deny front runner Donald Trump the party's nomination for US president.

Cruz plans to stop campaigning for the Oregon and New Mexico primaries to help Kasich, while the latter will give Cruz a "clear path" in Indiana.


Cruz crushes Trump in weekend delegate fight

Cruz smashes Trump in delegate grabTed Cruz notched another delegate landslide Saturday, stretching his advantage in a competition that might never occur: the second ballot of a contested Republican National Convention in July.

Cruz won at least 65 of the 94 delegates up for grabs Saturday (and he may have won more, but Kentucky's 25 delegates haven't revealed their leanings). The Texas senator has so thoroughly dominated the fight to send loyalists to the national convention that if front-runner Donald Trump fails to clinch the nomination on the first ballot, Cruz is well-positioned to surpass him — and perhaps even snag the nomination for himself — when delegates are free in subsequent convention rounds to vote for whomever they want.


Supreme Court upholds Arizona legislative redistricting

SCOTUS uholds AZ redistrictingThe Supreme Court ruled unanimously Wednesday that an Arizona redistricting plan that favors Democrats does not violate the 'one-person, one-vote" principle established by the Constitution.

In an opinion written by Justice Stephen Breyer, the court said that Arizona's redistricting commission was motivated "predominantly" by a desire to have the state legislative districts win Justice Department approval under the Voting Rights Act. The Supreme Court largely did away with that process in a 2013 ruling, but the justices said it was a legitimate consideration at the time Arizona was drawing new boundaries after the 2010 census.


Clinton on brink of Dem nomination; Trump strengthens path

Clinton/Trump win primaries in NYHillary Clinton emerged from New York's presidential primary closer to clinching the Democratic nomination and becoming the first woman to reach that milestone. Republican Donald Trump strengthened his own path to the general election with a commanding victory, but has little room for error in the states ahead.

The front-runners now hope to replicate their strong showings in New York in the cluster of Northeastern states next up on the primary calendar. Clinton was scheduled to spend Wednesday campaigning in Pennsylvania, while Trump had a rally planned in Maryland, as well as Indiana.


US Election 2016: Ted Cruz wins delegates in Wyoming

Cruz sweeps delegates in WyomingUS Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz has won all 14 delegates in contention at a state party convention in Wyoming.
The delegates were chosen by party members rather than ordinary voters.

Donald Trump - who did not actively campaign in the state - remains the Republican front-runner overall.

However, the billionaire could fall short of the number of delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination for the November presidential election.


Bernie Sanders Suspends Staffer For Being As Tough On Israel As He Is

Bernie suspends staffer for Bibi insultSen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) argued during Thursday’s Democratic debate that the Palestinian people should be treated with dignity and that the United States shouldn’t always kowtow to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Hours earlier, Sanders’ campaign suspended its new Jewish outreach director for advocating the exact same positions.

The ninth debate between Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton featured a heated discussion about whether Israel’s invasion of Gaza in the summer of 2014 was a disproportionate response to rocket attacks fired into its territory by Hamas, as Sanders has said it was.
