Former President Barack Obama is visiting closely divided Ohio to campaign for gubernatorial candidate Richard Cordray and other Democrats. Cordray, the former federal consumer watchdog, faces Republican state Attorney General Mike DeWine in one of the season's most anticipated governor's races. President Trump visited Ohio in August to campaign speak at a rally for DeWine. Republican Gov. John Kasich is term-limited, and Democrats, who are currently out of power at every level of Ohio government, hope to win the governorship. Also appearing with Obama at the Cleveland rally Thursday will be U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, who faces a challenge from Republican Jim Renacci, a congressman from Wadsworth. The appearance is part of a swing across the country by Obama to boost Democrats' efforts to win House seats and state elections. Obama kicked off his midterm campaigning earlier this month with a speech at University of Illinois at Urbana Champlain. In this speech, he urged people to become … [Read more...] about Obama visits Ohio to stump for Democratic candidate for governor Richard Cordray
By Stuart Varney Published September 13, 2018 Opinion FOXBusiness Facebook Twitter Comments Print video The left blaming Trump for Hurricane Florence? FBN's Stuart Varney on a Washington Post editorial seeming to blame hurricanes on President Trump's climate change policies. Here comes Hurricane Florence. Let’s blame Trump. Continue Reading Below That’s what I take away from this Washington Post headline: “Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit.” Because the president is not fighting climate change in quite the way the Post wants, hurricanes are Trump’s fault. At best, that is juvenile logic. But wait, there’s more. Here’s another headline from the Post: “If Trump cares about Hurricane Florence, his policies don’t show it.” Did you hear that: “If trump cares...” Obviously the Post thinks he doesn’t care. That he’s just sitting … [Read more...] about Hurricane Florence: Media will say anything that turns storm into votes for Democrats, Varney says
close Video Tucker: Where are Dem leaders on progressive violence? Tucker: The left is moving from violent words to action. And why wouldn't they? Their heroes are encouraging it. #Tucker In the State of California, a man screaming obscenities about the president attacked Republican Congressional candidate Rudy Peters over the weekend. He tried to stab him with a switchblade. Meanwhile, here in Washington, police are investigating an angry progressive who apparently threatened to shoot Trump supporters at the Trump International Hotel. The man had a Twitter avatar promoting the Democratic Socialists of America. At the University of Southern Nevada, meanwhile, a sociology professor called Mark Bird apparently became so enraged by Trump that he showed up at school with a gun. He was going to stage some kind of protest. In the end, he shot only himself in the arm which may say more about his competence than about anything else. -- That story's sort of amusing. A … [Read more...] about Tucker Carlson: When will Pelosi, Democratic leaders have the guts to speak up about political violence?
Mike DeBonis, The Washington Post Published 11:51 am PDT, Thursday, September 13, 2018 WASHINGTON - National Democrats are beginning to spend their midterm war chest on ads that highlight what they are calling a "culture of corruption" in Republican-controlled Washington, in a sign that they believe those issues are going to move voters. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and the House Majority PAC, the top Democratic super PAC engaged in House races, had focused virtually all of their national messaging on health care and economic fairness in a belief that voters are most interested in "kitchen table" issues. But a spate of corruption allegations against Republican incumbents has started to affect individual House races - and, in turn, national Democrats' spending decisions. On Friday, the DCCC will launch a $900,000 joint ad blitz with candidate David Shapiro, running against Republican Vern Buchanan in Florida's 16th Congressional District. The spot … [Read more...] about National Democrats start spending big money on anti-corruption message
