COLUMBUS, Ohio — President Donald Trump's mission is to rally Republicans behind GOP candidates in the nation's premier swing state. But when he steps into battleground Ohio on Friday, he's entering a state — and a Republican Party — deeply divided by his presidency. The Republican president is set to offer the keynote address at a state GOP dinner, an annual fundraiser that traditionally features the region's Republican royalty. Republican Gov. John Kasich, a fierce Trump critic and 2016 presidential primary opponent, won't be there. A spokesman said the term-limited governor, who lives in a suburb of the city where the president is speaking, had a personal scheduling conflict. No state features an uglier public clash between Trump and a sitting Republican governor. And ahead of high-stakes elections for governor, Senate and several House races, the red-hot intraparty feud threatens to undermine the GOP's chances come November — and could linger into the next … [Read more...] about Trump to enter divided Republican Party in battleground Ohio

SUBSCRIBE WASHINGTON — All across the country, Democratic candidates are sending a message: We're the party that isn't afraid to think big. Elect us, they say, and we'll pursue transformative policies like Medicare for All, free college, and guaranteed jobs. At the same time, Democratic congressional leaders are sending a parallel message: We're the party of responsible budgets. Elect us if you're mad about President Donald Trump racking up trillion-dollar deficits with his gigantic tax cut. The Democrats' two messages are increasingly coming into conflict — and some in the party are starting to notice. "The instinct that some Democrats have, which is born out of a sense of responsibility as the 'governing' party, is to explain exactly how you're going to pay for everything and how it all adds up," Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, told NBC News. "It puts you at a … [Read more...] about As the progressive push for big spending grows, so does the Democratic divide on the deficit
Carrie Severino, the chief counsel and policy director of the conservative Judicial Crisis Network, says that questions about Judge Brett Kavanaugh's views on whether a president can be indicted are a distraction from his judicial record. "People are trying to turn the conversation less from the legal issues that Kavanaugh has decided and more from trying to make it a proxy for how people feel about the [Special Counsel Robert Mueller's] investigation or things like that, or the president himself" Severino said on "The Takeout" this week. Legal scholars are divided on whether a sitting president can be indicted, and the Supreme Court has never ruled definitively either way on the issue. The question has come up in recent months because of Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, which had led to the indictment of several associates of President Trump. Mr. Trump's personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said in May that a … [Read more...] about Would Kavanaugh rule that Trump can’t be indicted?
