Roy Moore’s victory in the Alabama special election and the Senate’s failed effort to repeal Obamacare point to a GOP whose voters are losing patience.
While this race may not have been much of a referendum on President Trump, there was a bit of a referendum on Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and what he represents to the Republican voter.
Former Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is back doing what she does best: another work of fiction.
This is the stage some of us have been waiting for: when Trump tacks back to the Left, makes nice with Democrats, and sells out his core supporters.
President Trump can come back and win a smashing victory again if he promotes his signature issues from last year, trade above all. He should also weaponize tax reform against his enemies.
No matter how red West Virginia may appear on a presidential map, any campaign against Joe Manchin will be a daunting task. Patrick Morrisey says he’s up to it.

Republicans have the power and opportunity to hit the abortion industry where it hurts—its wallet—but so far haven’t demonstrated the will. What the heck are majorities for?
Whether tanking the American Health Care Act is ultimately viewed as a ‘deliverance’ will depend on whether lawmakers can learn the right lessons from an entirely predictable defeat.
The only way the Obamacare replacement bill could have turned out worse is if Republicans had actually passed it. Thank the House Freedom Caucus.
This type of ‘pass-it-to-find-out-what’s-in-it’ mentality birthed Obamacare, and is the reason the conservative base increasingly despises their party.
