COULD GOP TAKE VIRGINIA IN 2018?
As reported at the Washington Examiner, conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham is possibly eying a bid to run for the U.S. Senate in Virginia in 2018. Democrats have a tough road ahead of them in 2018 that includes defending 25 seats that are Democrat or Independents that caucus with Dems. Nine of which are in states that Donald Trump won in 2016. Ingraham would be facing a tough GOP primary and if she wins taking on failed Hillary VP candidate Sen. Tim Kaine. Should be interesting.
The queen of conservative talk radio, Laura Ingraham, is eyeing a Senate run in Virginia and a challenge to Hillary Clinton’s running mate, Sen. Tim Kaine.
Knowledgeable sources said that several party insiders have approached the media giant to run and that she is considering it.
In preparation for a bid, her business partner, Peter Anthony, has begun buying website domains for Ingraham to use should she decide to move forward. It includes: ingrahamsenate.net, ingrahamsenate.com, ingrahamforvirginia.com and ingraham2018.com.
While it would be considered an uphill fight, Ingraham brings her well-known personality and several influential backers to a race that could translate into immediate media and fundraising opportunities.
Ingraham also would come to the race with a powerful media enterprise behind her. Besides her popular radio show, she also heads the news site Lifezette.com.

“We are going to bring this dirtbag to justice, and he’s going to jail,” Orlando Police Chief John Mina said.

He was traveling south on Pine Hills Road on his motorcycle when he was struck by a van turning left onto Balboa Drive, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
“We’re sad on this day for many reasons,” Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings said at a morning news conference at the hospital. “In my 36-year career, this is possibly one of the toughest days for me.”
FBI Says … Fort Lauderdale Airport Suspect Esteban Santiago ‘Came Here Specifically’ to Attack (VIDEO)
NOTE TO FBI … THIS WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER SERVED IF YOU HAD TOLD ALL OF THIS BEFORE THE SUSPECT GOT ON THE PLANE.
According to the FBI, the suspect in the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport shootings that left 5 people dead and many more injured came to Florida specifically to attack. How do they know this, the suspect reportedly told them during the investigation. However, this is not the first time that the suspect and the FBI have crossed paths. The FBI still is not saying whether this was terror related. Hmm, even though they say the motive is unclear or whether this may or may not be terror related, doesn’t the FBI usually error on the side of it was not terror? Not in this case as the FBI has egg on their face and a lot of explaining to do.
Esteban Santiago went to baggage claim and picked up his one piece of checked luggage.
There were no other bags, just a case with a handgun inside.
Santiago allegedly took the 9 mm handgun out of its case and fired at other travelers Friday afternoon, killing five people at the Fort Lauderdale airport. On Saturday, authorities revised the number of wounded to six after earlier saying eight.
A few months earlier he reportedly had a mental evaluation after a bizarre visit to an FBI office in Alaska.
Friday’s shooting sent the airport terminal into chaos, with people running for cover. They started running again when rumors of more gunshots and a possible second shooter spread through the busy airport. Almost 40 others would get hurt in the rushed evacuation after the attack. Some suffered sprains and bruises; others had broken bones.
