Quico Canseco Uses Donations to Pay Back Personal Campaign Loans

Patrick Had Facts, Castro Had Emotions in Tuesday’s Immigration Debate

Tuesday’s debate on immigration between Texas Lt. Governor candidate State Sen. Dan Patrick and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro was well worth the time. Going into it, I was skeptical.

Republican Party of VA Executive Director Hits Hard at ‘Nativists’, Then Hides Out

Instead of going on Ingraham’s show, or any other large outlet for that matter to defend his call for ‘nativists’ to be purged from the GOP, he sent out a fundraising email late in the week and that was it for the public […]
