Hotair - GOP rising star trying to drag Democratic opponent out of the bunker

posted at 6:01 pm on October 2, 2014 by Matt Vespa

Ok, I know what some of you are wondering: who’s Marilinda Garcia? Well, she’s a rising star in the Republican Party out of New Hampshire where she’s a state representative. She’s challenging Democratic Congresswoman Annie Kuster in the state’s second congressional district.

Garcia has been traveling the district, visiting small businesses, schools, and just announced a town hall tour that will end the day before Election Day. Some prominent national Republicans have endorsed and fundraised on her behalf. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers raised at least $500,000 for her as well as other women running on the Republican ticket in this year’s congressional races. Mitt Romney also endorsed her.

As for her opponent, Congresswoman Kuster hasn’t held a town hall meeting with her constituents since her 2012 victory; that’s over 600 days. In a region of the country where voters like–and expect–these events from their representatives, it’s rubbed some voters the wrong way. Local New Hampshire newspapers have published letters to the editor from voters venting about Rep. Kuster’s lack of constituent services.

Watchdog: Big Labor Millionaires Lead ‘Income Equality’ Convention

By Jason Hart | Watchdog.org

Several of America’s wealthiest union bosses spoke at the 2014 Ohio AFL-CIO convention in Cincinnati this week. The event’s theme? “Building the movement for income equality.”

American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten portrayed herself and other AFL-CIO leaders as the voices of the working class, although AFT paid her $2,022,274 taken from union members and forced “fair share” fee payers between 2010 and 2013.

Weingarten reminded convention attendees of the need for higher taxes and more government spending to create “good jobs” in the public sector, which would also funnel more money to AFT and other public-sector unions. [...]

Federal investigators find no connection between Christie and Bridgegate

posted at 8:41 pm on September 18, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

Welcome news for Chris Christie, but … a little unusual in its delivery. NBC New York’s exclusive report relies on unnamed sources within the federal investigation, which has gone on for nine months now, and which is decidedly not closed yet. Still, multiple sources seem willing to let NBC report that no one’s found any connection to the closure of the George Washington Bridge a year ago and the New Jersey governor:

The U.S. Justice Department investigation into New Jersey Gov.Chris Christie’s role in “Bridgegate” has thus far uncovered no information he either knew in advance or directed the closure of traffic lanes on the George Washington Bridge, federal officials tell NBC 4 New York.

The September 2013 closures — where several entrance lanes to the George Washington Bridge in Ft. Lee were shut down causing a traffic nightmare for commuters — has been the subject of several federal and state investigations.

Federal officials caution that the investigation begun nine months ago is ongoing and that no final determination has been made, but say that after nine months authorities have uncovered no information Christie either knew in advance or ordered the closure of traffic lanes.

Why go public now while the investigation continues? NBC quotes former federal prosecutor Robert Ray as saying that any smoking gun would have surely turned up by now.[...]

Newsmax - Top Democrats Stepping Away From Wasserman Schultz

Thursday, 18 Sep 2014 09:13 AM

By Melanie Batley

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is losing support from the White House, congressional Democrats, and party operatives after her controversial comments recently comparing tea party advocates to domestic abusers and her criticisms of the White House's handling of the border crisis.

According to Politico, insiders believe the Florida congresswoman is more focused on her own political ambitions than boosting the party's fortunes.

For example, she has used meetings with Democratic donors to ask for contributions for her own PAC and campaign, has used Democratic National Committee aides to pursue her personal political agenda, and has tried to get the DNC to pay for her wardrobe.[...]
