RINO Sen. Kelly Ayotte Bites the Political Dust in New Hampshire … Concedes to Democrat Maggie Hassan
GONE GIRL, RINO CONCEDES IN NEW HAMPSHIRE…
Incumbent GOP Sen. Kelly Ayotte has conceded the New Hampshire senate election to Democrat Maggie Hassan Wednesday evening. In the end, she lost the vote by a little of a thousand votes, but declined to have a recount. The GOP lost two seats in the past 2016 elections, having had to defend many seats. Many pundits predicted the Republicans would lose control of the Senate in this past election cycle, they got that wrong too. The GOP remains in control of the U.S. Senate 52-48.
GOP Sen. Kelly Ayotte conceded to Democrat Maggie Hassan Wednesday evening, declining to pursue a recount in the nation’s closest Senate race and tipping a second seat to Democrats after Tuesday’s election.
Hassan led Ayotte by just 1,019 votes out of more than 738,000 cast, according to the secretary of state’s official tally. The margin was well within the limits for a recount, but Ayotte conceded to Hassan a day after the polls closed.
“I just spoke with Governor Hassan to congratulate her on her election to serve in the U.S. Senate,” Ayotte said in a statement. “I wish Governor Hassan, her husband Tom, and their children Ben and Meg the very best.”
Hassan was one of Senate Democrats’ most prized recruits this year, and Democrats needed every bit of the sitting governor’s popularity to take on Ayotte, who also remained more liked than not by New Hampshire voters throughout the campaign. Both Senate nominees picked up thousands more votes than the two major-party presidential candidates did in the state.
Ayotte’s defeat knocks a rising Republican star — and one of the party’s most prominent women — out of the ranks of GOP elected officials, while adding another female Democratic senator in a key state.
CNN Cuts Ties with DNC Chair Donna Brazile After Wikileaks Email Shows She was Aiding Clinton campaign with Debate Questions … CNN says it is “completely uncomfortable
CNN CUTS TIES WITH DONNA BRAZILE AS SECOND WIKILEAKS EMAILS ARISES THAT SHE TIPPED OFF TEAM HILLARY WITH DEBATE QUESTION.
CNN has cut ties, PC for fired, Donna Brazile after it became known that a second Wikileaks email showed that the CNN contributor and co-DNC chair had provided debate question to Hillary Clinton’s team prior to the debate. The lengths of the collusion and corruption between the media and the Democrat party is simply amazing. The DNC, who is supposed to be impartial during the primaries, was aiding Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders and his supported should be furious! During the Democrat primary Sander stated on many occasions that the system was rigged. Guess what, it was.
I asked this question after the first Email from Donna Brazile was made public by Wikileaks and I will say it again … HOW HAS DONNA BRAZILE NOT BEEN FIRED BY THE DNC? The media and the Democrat party act like this isn’t a big story. America, this is cheating at the highest levels!!!
WHY ISN’T CNN TRYING TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS? MY PERSONAL OPINION IS THEY SHOULD BE BANNED FROM DEBATES IN THE FUTURE.
CNN says it is “completely uncomfortable” with hacked emails showing that former contributor and interim Democratic National Committee chairwoman Donna Brazile shared questions with the Clinton campaign before a debate and a town hall during the Democratic primary, and has accepted her resignation.
Hacked emails posted by WikiLeaks show Brazile, whose CNN contract was suspended when she became interim DNC chair over the summer, sharing with the Clinton campaign a question that would be posed to Hillary Clinton before the March CNN Democratic debate in Flint, as well as a possible question prior to a CNN town hall, also in March.
In a statement, CNN spokeswoman Lauren Pratapas said that on Oct. 14, the network accepted Brazile’s resignation.
“On October 14th, CNN accepted Donna Brazile’s resignation as a CNN contributor. [Her deal had previously been suspended in July when she became the interim head of the DNC.] CNN never gave Brazile access to any questions, prep material, attendee list, background information or meetings in advance of a town hall or debate. We are completely uncomfortable with what we have learned about her interactions with the Clinton campaign while she was a CNN contributor,” Pratapas said.
In a tweet, Brazile thanked CNN and her now former colleagues there.
“Thank you @CNN. Honored to be a Democratic Strategist and commentator on the network. Godspeed to all my former colleagues,” she wrote.
A CNN employee, speaking on background, suggested Brazile may have met the woman who was supposed to pose the question about lead poisoning during a service event planned the day before the debate.
HARRY REID CANNOT LEAVE THE SENATE SOON ENOUGH, HE MAY HAVE VIOLATED BE A HUMAN ACT …
Don’t blame Hillary Clinton for for emails crimes, instead blame FBI director James Comey. That is what Democrats are doing. Outgoing Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said on Sunday hat FBI Director James Comey may have violated the Hatch Act, barring political activity by federal employees from influencing elections. This claims comes from the Friday letter to Congress with regards to emails found during the Anthony Weiner investigation that implicate Hillary Clinton and her private email/server scandal. Really? An FBI director informs Congress and amends his previous under oath report to them when he finds out that there is more information and a reported 650, 000 emails and he is said to have committed a crime? SICK!!! Dingy Harry is nothing more than a partisan hack.
As also stated at CNN, Don’t blame Comey for this mess. This was of Hillary Clinton’s doing and now her undoing. Make no mistake about this America, this was obstruction of justice and lying to the FBI.
Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid said on Sunday that FBI Director James Comey may have violated the Hatch Act, barring political activity by federal employees, through a late election season letter to Congress about the scope of the bureau’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s private email service as secretary of state.
Comey’s letter on Friday to congressional committee chairs said the FBI is reviewing newly discovered emails that might be linked to Clinton’s private server. The new emails were found several weeks ago, law enforcement officials told CNN Sunday, but the FBI did not disclose them until Friday. The timing raises questions about why the information was released just days before the election.
“I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act,” Reid said in his letter to Comey. “Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law.”
There has been no immediate response from the FBI.
The Hatch Act prohibits FBI officials from using their official authority to influence an election. Reid said that by releasing this information, which he says is not conclusive or pertinent, Comey may have broken the law. Reid referenced a memo from Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates from March of this year that establishes all Justice Department employees, including Comey, are subject to the Hatch Act.
Reid accused Comey of having intent to aid one political party over the other in the election and called his behavior a “double standard” due to the fact that, as Reid claimed in the letter, Comey has information related to Donald Trump’s dealings with Russia.
RINO & Failed GOP Establishement Presidential Candidate John McCain Says, ‘I don’t know’ if Donald Trump will be better for Supreme Court than Hillary Clinton
I GUESS THIS IS MCCAIN’S IDEA OF BEING MAVERICKY …
UNBELIEVABLE … Sen. John McCain (Rino-AZ) says in an interview that he does not know whether Donald Trump will be better in nominating justices to the US Supreme Court than Hillary Clinton. Seriously? If McCain a so-called Republican, does not know whether the GOP candidate for President would or would not be better in selecting possible justices to the SCOTUS over a bed-wetting liberal and proven liar like Hillary Clinton, maybe its time for him to retire. If you ever wondered what happened to the Republican party, look no further than “mavericky” GOP Senator John McCain.
What a bunch of crap coming from the RINO and former failed establishment Republican presidential candidate. This fools answer is to block Hillary Clinton’s SCOTUS nominees, yet in the same breath he is saying that he does not know if Trump would be any better? As stated at Hot Air, this is the one subject we know that all Republicans can agree with when it comes to The Donald. Trump has already released a list of 20 potential SCOTUS nominees and none would be questioned by Republicans. Sadly, this is what has gone wrong with the Republican party, establishment candidates need to be flushed out and replaced with those that actually care about the country and not their own political power.
Trump has released lists of 21 potential justices. He has pledged to choose from among those 21 when making Supreme Court selections, in a move that has earned him praise from conservatives, including his former rival in the Republican primary, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
Asked on the Dom Giordano program on 1210 WPHT Philadelphia radio whether Trump was the superior candidate on issues like the Supreme Court, the Arizona senator replied, “Uh, first of all, I don’t know, because I hear him saying a lot of different things.”
Later in the interview, McCain used the opportunity to make the case for fellow Republican Sen. Pat Toomey, who is locked in a close battle to retain his Senate seat in Pennsylvania. McCain promised that Republicans would be “united against any Supreme Court nominee” put forth by Clinton.
“I promise you that we will be united against any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton, if she were president, would put up,” McCain said. “I promise you. This is where we need the majority and Pat Toomey is probably as articulate and effective on the floor of the Senate as anyone I have encountered.”
This is exactly the kind of Republican establishment BS that Americans have grown sick and tired of. Really, the gutless and spineless establishment Republicans like McCain are going to unite and block a Hillary Clinton SCOTUS nominee? No you are not. The GOP was given control of the House to stop Obamacare, they did nothing. The GOP was given control of the Senate to repeal Obamacare and balance the budget, they did nothing. What makes any Republican think these gutless wonders would stand up to Hillary Clinton?
IMAGINE WHAT THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE WOULD LOOK LIKE IF THE MSM ACTUALLY COVERED AND REPORTED ON THE ILLS OF HILLARY CLINTON?
From The Washington Times, WikiLeaks hacked emails show Clinton campaign made disparaging comments and mocked Catholics and Southerners, called Latinos “needy, ” and called supporters of Bernie Sanders “self-righteous” whiners. But do you think the MSM would ever cover this? HELL NO!!! They are too busy running cover for Hillary Clinton and doing her opposition research and political hit jobs on Donald Trump.
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE WHAT I CALL LATINOS, CATHOLICS, SOUTHERNERS AND SANDERS SUPPORTS, THE MSM WILL NOT REPORT ON IT
Long before Hillary Clinton called millions of Americans a “basket of deplorables,” her top campaign advisers and liberal allies openly mocked Catholics, Southerners and a host of other groups, according to newly released emails that offer a stunning window into the vitriol inside the Clinton world less than a month before Election Day.
The emails, published by WikiLeaks after a hack of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s private account, also show Clinton campaign officials and Democratic leaders disparaging supporters of Sen. Bernard Sanders as “self-righteous” whiners, calling Hispanic party leaders such as Bill Richardson “needy Latinos,” labeling CNN anchor Jake Tapper “a d—k” and even lambasting longtime Clinton ally Sidney Blumenthal.
The sheer number of insults in the email trove has left the Clinton campaign, along with outside organizations such as the Center for American Progress that were routinely involved in the brutal bad-mouthing, unable or unwilling to respond. Instead, they have blamed the hack on Russia and have refused to even confirm that the emails are genuine, though they also haven’t denied their authenticity.
The Clinton campaign’s biggest problem may be its assault on Catholics. Prominent Catholic organizations called on Clinton campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Palmieri to resign after the surfacing of messages showing her making fun of the faith. The campaign of Republican nominee Donald Trump seized on the opportunity to appeal to religious voters.
